I am Rolf Potts, a travel writer who has traveled around the world with no luggage of any kind, and am the author of "Vagabonding." AMA!
My name is Rolf Potts, I’m a travel writer who has written for National Geographic, The New Yorker, Outside, the New York Times, Sports Illustrated, and the Travel Channel, among others. My travels have taken me around the world, including a six week stretch (12 countries and 34,000 miles) with no luggage or bags of any kind.
I’m perhaps best known for promoting the ethic of independent travel, and my book on the subject, Vagabonding: An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel.
This week I partnered with Tim Ferriss (author of 4 Hour Workweek, 4 Hour Body, 4 Hour Chef) to release Vagabonding as an audiobook on Audible.
You can check out the first few chapters and a bunch of other goodies for free over on BitTorrent.
I’d love to chat about anything you’d like--long term travel, writing, culture, whatever is on your mind.
