Travel Blog of the Day: Travels of Adam

The internet is laden with blogs about travel. You don’t have time to read them all, you have to watch every season of "The Walking Dead" so that you can be ready for the spinoff. This column will allow you to sift through the schlock and get back to Zombiapocalypse! Check us out on twitter at #travelblogoftheday.

We all know the story: you get done with high school or even college and you are burnt toast. For the past 12-16 years you have been racking your brain, learning everything you can in hopes that you go out in the world to do good. Then, no sooner are you out then you are working, trying to pay off student debt, get a reliable car and hoping you can make it in this rat race world of ours. Or you can quit it all and travel the world.  Just like Adam, today’s blogger.

Travels of Adam

Adam Groffman was a book designer in Boston, Massachusetts when he was lucky enough to spend a long weekend with a friend in Iceland. After a great time seeing the sights and meeting other travelers from all over the world, he decided that he wanted to do the same thing. He wanted to travel the world for a living. He has called Germany home for a bit, but for the most part he travels. He does layout and design to keep the money coming in but the blog is where his passion lies.

The blog is broken down by destination and by travel themes and, of course, Hipster Guides to cities he has visited (he identifies as a hipster). They cover topics things to do, places to see, art and culture, food and drink, people watching, etc. If there is a good gay community in the city, he will typically throw in a breakdown of that as well.

The travel themes range from food and beverage to technology and the tips section offers up some great advice as well. I must admit that I am huge fan of his travel fashion tips as I believe that is one of the key things lacking in the millennial generation of travlers.

So check him out! He posts about two to three times a week, so you can check him out periodically and not have too much to catch up on. But more than likely, you will be checking in more often than that because the content is that good.
