Hi, I’m John Cain and I run this site.

I’ve been traveling and living around the world as a digital nomad and vagabond since retiring from my “day job” in 2012.

My career as a, for a lack of a better word, covert operative started early and after a decade, I “got out” while I still could to live a normal life. It wasn’t long until I was bored out of my mind so I booked a 29 day round trip to Bangkok.

By the 27th day, the airport I was supposed to take my flight back to New York to was in a different country than I was. Because I met some good people along the way and we somehow wandered across borders and countries.

I said “fu*k it” and traveled the fu*k on. I haven’t stopped since, but became a lifestyle traveler and have been roaming the earth that way since.

For the first few years I worked my way around the world like a constant tourist.

Nowadays I live in a city or country for the sake of living a life like a local, not just sightseeing and passing by like a stranger breezing by.
