“Were I permitted an avocation it would be the study of social conditions; what surer way of gaining vital knowledge of modern society than to live and work among the world’s workmen in every clime?”- Harry Franck, A Vagabond Journey Around the World, 1910
We travel the world directly investigating the local effects of world events, shifts in culture, disappearing traditions, social upheavals big and small, odd intrigues, as well as the more mundane intricacies that hold it all together. We travel as vagabonds, working as we go, ever trying to engage people and places a little closer to discover a little more about the world we live in.
Vagabond Journey was founded in 2005 by Wade Shepard, a traveler who’s been knocking about the world since 1999. There are now 3475 articles on this site, so please take your time and feel free to dig into the complete archives.
