Enjoying another sunset from my own deserted beach. That's right, since no one else ever comes here, I've decided to rename it Derek Beach...not sure how to say that in Thai yet but I'll learn. And on that note as of today April 1st 2016, after 2,563 days as a nomad, I'm done. I'm home. #travel ✔

Unique & Offbeat Things To Do In Sri Lanka

Pristine beaches. Lush jungles. Delicious food. Spectacular weather. Endless adventures and possibilities.

Travel Fucktastrophes: The Stories I’ve Never Told

When traveling, there are those stories that are never told. No, not the ones about what happened in Bangkok or Berlin or Las Vegas — those always get told, often with “my friend” or “this guy I know” substituted in place of the slightly more embarrassing “me” 😉 I’m talking about those crazy embarrassing stories.

Hungry? This delicious Thai dish is actually.....rat. After catching 3 rats in a small village we took them to a roadside restaurant where they cooked 'em up for us for breakfast. 🐀🍴 As you can see from my camera in the background, we also filmed it. Keep an eye out for more new episodes of Derek Eats That! coming soon...very soon 😉 #travel

This what happens to the ocean on the first day of Songkran....it gets sucked dry. (This is that same deserted beach I've been posting photos of for the last month, only today it looks a lot different.)

If You Use Chrome, I Can Steal Your Passwords

This is a far cry from my normal travel posts, but it is something that all digital nomads should be aware of. If you use Chrome without logging in to it, you can have all your passwords and autofill details stolen. I’m only writing this post because after contacting Google, they flagged the exploit as […]

It's my 7-year nomadiversary! When you're a nomad nowhere is home. EVERYWHERE is home. This year's nomadiversary post is the first in a new series Travel Fucktastrophes: The Stories I've Never Told. It's so funny you'll crap yourself. I did. (You can find it on my blog.) #travel
