Twipper of the Week: Drew Goldberg from The Hungry Partier.
Current city: Currently I am traveling though Sofia, Bulgaria, but my home is out of my backpack.
What makes you interesting: When I finished college I rejected the idea to find a “corporate job” like 99% of my friends did and took a job as an English teacher in South Korea. I started my travel blog from day one. Two years later I now have 60K monthly visits to my site and over 100K combined social media followers.
Total countries visited: 64
What is your most favorite travel memory: Taking a private tour of the biggest slum in Asia called Dharavi in Mumbai, India. Witnessing 1 million people living inside of a 2 kilometer area was the single most eye-opening experience to date. I learned to really appreciate the things I have in life and to never complain about anything.
What is the most interesting food you have tried and where: I ate an entire live octopus in Seoul, Korea. There’s a video of me eating it on Youtube!
What is the most impractical item you have packed: An obnoxiously long selfie stick.
What is your favorite mode of transportation when you travel: I prefer to travel on trains because I love to look out the window at the countryside! Also, I am able to get a lot of work done (writing blog posts, etc).
What do people say when they travel with you: People say I’m like the Energizer Bunny. I’m always adventuring around nonstop!
Next travel destination: Cairo next week. Turkey the week after. Back to Eastern Europe (Ukraine, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus) and then South East Asia until 2016.
