Twipper of the Week: Jeremy Albelda from The World or Bust.
Current city: Bangkok, Thailand
Total countries visited: 46
What makes you interesting: I am completely location independent, i.e., happily homeless! I left the states in 2014 and have been slow traveling ever since running my travel blog, The World or Bust, and my Internet marketing business. I do a lot of motorcycle road trips and have done two large week long trips this past year to the mountainous northwest corner of Thailand, and a road trip in Mexico across some of the central states.
What brands do you love: I’m a big fan of Harley Davidson Motorcycles. I think they have done a great job of attracting millennials like myself with smaller city-friendly, hip bikes. Next time I hang up my hat for an extended period of time, I’m going to buy a new one. For clothing, my favorite brand is Penguin. I love their retro but modern-fit shirts.
Who is the most interesting person you have met while traveling: I meet lots of interesting people all the time. Being open and giving people the time of day lets you meet lots of people you never would normally come in contact with. I think everyone is unique and interesting in their own right, it’s when you take the time to talk to people that you can see that. I would have to say the most interesting person I’ve ever gotten to interview is Dwight Worker, who escaped prison in Mexico…dressed as a woman!
What is the most interesting food you have ever tried and where: A few weeks ago I was in Bangkok and there was a lady selling barbecue scorpions, so, I had to try!
What is the most impractical item you have ever packed: Protein powder.
What is your favorite mode of transportation when you travel: One of the things I get anxiety about most when I travel is not being in control, i.e., flying. So, when I hit the road, my favorite mode of transportation is definitely a motorcycle.
What does “Travel” mean to you: Breaking barriers.
Next travel destination: Manila, The Philippines.
