Hey what's up! I just came across this forum and damn i didn't know I had people until I found this place. I'm planning to travel the world NOMAD-style, I'm just so sick of the mainstream world and want to live life the adventureous way. Currently based in The Netherlands, but I can call any place home, as long as I'm not stuck there for too long. Anyway, I welcome any advice for people like me just starting out in their travels and thanks for having me :)

Hi Y'all,

I didn't know there were this many comments on my post, so sorry for the delayed reply..

About the nomad culture in The Netherlands: in my experience Dutch people are a bit uptight about that sorta life here, but where aren't they, right? Now I've tried my hardest looking for Dutch communities like this one, but either they're non-existant or very very well-hidden. I'm not very experienced on any topic here, so for now I'm just here to learn, soryy!!!

Anyway, thanks for the warm welcome and I hope to maybe one day meet you on my travels!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $70.75 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $70.75 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $70.75 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
Anyone been to Thailand or know anything about Thailand? Going in September and have absolutely no plans yet, open to suggestions!
