Matt Kepnes operates the travel blogging website Nomadic Matt and in 2006 began his adventures as an international nomad. Inspired by a life-changing experience in Chaing Mai, Thailand, where he met five travelers who had devoted their life to world-exploration on a budget, Matt immediately knew he wanted in. Ten years later, he is still traveling, and is the author of a critically acclaimed novel, ranked in the New York Times best-selling list, “How to Travel the World on $50 a Day.” In this novel he imparts a special brand of wisdom which he has gleaned from his years of travel, and hopes to inspire in the same way those five travelers did in Thailand. His website, nomadicmatt.com seeks to do the same.
Every month, more than one million people visit his site, looking for the latest travel tips or hoping to plan out their dream vacation. With sections of his site specifically devoted to: “Start Here”, “Destinations”, and “Community”, this site is well suited for the veteran adventurer or the novice dreamer. However, it is really the “Guides” section of his site that has the most important information, with highly detailed explanations of what a slew of international cities have to offer, and how to make the most out of them on a budget.
Matt is a travel blogger who has been endorsed by a number of large media outlets, such as The New York Times, CNN, National Geographic, and Time magazine. He would explain thats because time and time again, the advice on his site is the best out there, period. Take a look for yourself and see how traveling on a budget can be a reality.
