“Matt is possibly the most well-traveled person I know…His knowledge and passion for understanding the world is unrivaled, and never fails to amaze me.” ―Mark Manson, New York Times bestselling author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck
New York Times bestselling author of How to Travel the World on $50 a Day, Matthew Kepnes knows what it feels like to get the travel bug. After meeting some travelers on a trip to Thailand in 2005, he realized that living life meant more than simply meeting society’s traditional milestones, such as buying a car, paying a mortgage, and moving up the career ladder. Inspired by them, he set off for a year-long trip around the world before he started his career. He finally came home after ten years. Over 500,000 miles, 1,000 hostels, and 90 different countries later, Matt has compiled his favorite stories, experiences, and insights into this travel manifesto.
Ten Years a Nomad (St. Martin’s Press, $27.99) is for travel junkies, the travel-curious, and anyone interested in what you can learn about the world when you don’t have a cable bill for a decade or spend a month not wearing shoes living on the beach in Thailand.
MATTHEW KEPNES is the New York Times bestselling author of How to Travel the World on $50 a Day, and runs the award-winning budget travel site Nomadic Matt. His writings and advice have been featured in The New York Times, The Guardian, Time, and in countless other publications. He is also a regular speaker at travel trade and consumer shows. When he’s not on the road, he’s usually found in Austin, Texas.
