Travel Tips

This section is intended to have posts that might help you out on one of your travels, but then again, might just provide you with some amusing reading of a mis-mash of travel situations that I’ve gotten myself into.

I’d love to have readers and followers ask me questions on this page for me to answer in future posts. I’m never going to claim to be any sort of travel know-it-all, but if you want to have me take a crack at a topic, go ahead and post your question up here in the comment section and I’ll see what I can come up with.

Thanks again for reading, commenting, stumbling, following and re-tweeting!

  1. Hi there,

    My husband and I are in the planning stages for a round the world overland trip from SF, CA. We have backpacked quite a bit, and are very familiar with all things developing world, and really enjoy traveling like that. So, as we plan this trip, we are trying to find the best route from Africa through the Middle-East into India. We understand the anti-Israeli sentiment, and the ban on travel if we have the stamp in our passports, but what route might you suggest? Since the political unrest is always present, do you have any thoughts on where taking our car overland would be safest?

    Thanks for any advice you have.

    1. Go to Israel last. It is possible for them to stamp a separate page. You should have no problems getting into Egypt from Israel, but Syria and Lebanon would be problematic.

  2. i love reading your posts Mike! So informative.. I’d also like to add I just downloaded the travel club app mytravelsos. It says I have a personal assistant and full legal/medical coverage while on vacation. I think it’s a good deal.. it helped me a lot with my travel arrangements the fact that I have a personal assistant. Anyways, i look forward to your next post! 🙂

  5. Hi Mike,

    You’ve obviously done your fair share of travelling over the years, so my question is whether your journeys have broken any stereotypes of different cultures?

    If so, what are the ones that stand out most in your mind?

  6. I just read about you and I’m curious- how much money did you have when you started your journey? I have done a fair share of traveling on my very low income (taking advantage of hostels and the like) but around the world seems like a very expensive endeavour.

    One small advice is to rent a car while travelling other places.

  8. Hi! May I suggest something? I wish you write an article about how you deal or prevent jet lag. I have issues with jet lag and it’s a great problem every time I travel long hours by plane. I heard JetlagFX as a great jet lag cure. But I want to hear your advice.

  10. I found your travel stories very interesting. There is hidden humor that bring a smile. I am lucky in bus travel in Africa particularly in Tanzania. Once on a ten-hour bus ride from Mwanza to Arusha, I was sitting a plump lady and was happy whenever the bus was jerky.

    In Morocco, I used to reserve front seat but paying for two to make the ride comfortable.

    Thank you Michael Hodson for entertaining travelogues. I have just started and am already hooked to it.
