Stephen has been traveling ever since he was old enough to unfold a map and not quite able to fold it back again. He started writing about his trips not long after. After finishing university, Stephen joined the US Peace Corps where he volunteered teaching English and leading community projects in Uzbekistan.
After those two years in Central Asia he continued traveling in between English teaching contracts in Mongolia, South Korea, Spain, and the West Bank. Somewhere about that time he began freelance writing for both print and online media outlets. Some of his favorite trips have taken him overland through the Middle East, the backpacker route around Southeast Asia, by foot across northern Spain, through China and India, numerous rail journeys criss-crossing Europe, and by car through the vast landscape of the American West.
More recently he set out five years ago with his now wife, Juno Kim, to travel the world as digital nomads. After setting up two travel blogs, www.bohemiantraveler.com and www.gomadnomad.com, he’s worked from destinations near and far, as long as there’s been an Internet connection.At some point Stephen realized that he could share his passion for traveling by leading other on trips in a similar fashion to the way he traveled–connecting them with the local culture and enabling them to have better travel experiences.
Stephen feels most comfortable in a small town with no traffic somewhere close to where he can easily go walking in the hills and get some writing done with a cup of herbal tea in the quiet of the morning.0
