I run the award winning budget travel site, Nomadic Matt. I got the travel bug after a trip to Costa Rica in 2004 and after a trip to Thailand the following year, I decided to quit my job, finish my MBA and head off into the world. My original trip was supposed to last a year but I am still going. I learned to scuba dive in Fiji, was a poker player in Amsterdam, taught English in Thailand, got lost in a jungle in Central America and broke down in the middle of Australia's outback.
My advice has been featured in The New York Times, CNN, The Guardian UK, Lifehacker, Budget Travel, BBC, Yahoo! Finance and countless other magazines.
