The 100th

Sunset over Juifen in Taiwan - VINJABONDWelcome to VINJABOND‘s 100th post.

I started this site less than a year ago while vagabonding in Taipei sitting in my temporary “nomad apartment“. What started as a part-time hobby has developed into a healthy obsession.

The success of this site owes thanks to you, the readers and supporters… So thank you.

A special thanks goes to my sponsors ;



HITCASE



URBAN TOOL



I’ve been using their products (Hitcase Pro and sportHolster) indispensably throughout my world travels long before our partnerships.

Live well, travel far and repeat.

Thanks, again.

Keeping Fit While Traveling The World as a Lifestyle

Selfie at Kuta Beach on Lombok Island - VINJABONDAs vagabonding is a lifestyle of world travel, it’s just as important to stay physically fit as it is in any other way of living.

In a “regular” life where the term “9 to 5” means something, the stationary positioning and predictable routine makes it easy to find a time and place to exercise. The active nature of vagabonding actually makes it potentially as easy, albeit erratic.

The operative word in “world travel” in this case is travel – to move from one place to another. Not necessarily by powered vehicles but by walking, swimming, running and jumping as a necessity of such frequent travel.

For the more adventurous and physical traveler, the mere act of being is enough to stay at a level physique.

I myself am a very active traveler but still like to maintain peak physical condition while not letting it take over or hinder my vagabonding lifestyle.


DAILY /

100 – 200 pushups every other day and 300 – 500 crunches between days.

-morning or night


WEEKLY /

Run at least a mile in a single set or the equivalent in biking or other sports.

-whenever possible


SPECIAL /

Hiking, climbing, diving, kayaking – anything available within my current location.

-location dependent



My exercise routine is basic but effective. It gives me time to enjoy the world as I travel it and the freedom of a flexible schedule to do what I want, when I want.

When you’re traveling the world and want to keep fit, you don’t need to have a specific exercise program.

Just do what vagabonding is suppose to be about; explore and be adventurous, get dirty and sweat, say “yes” more often and try new new things.

Just. Be. Active.
