Hi, I'm Chris Backe (rhymes with hockey).
I blog about weird, offbeat destinations and life as a long-term nomadic traveler.
In 2008, I left the US for a job teaching English and haven't looked back. Today, I've written over a dozen books and itineraries, and have traveled all over Asia since then.

Current location: Khon Kaen, Thailand.
I'll be here until: end of September 2014. Next up: southern Thailand for around 6 months.

Learn more about Chris.
