About the Hobo




My name is Gary, but I have also been known to answer to Twodogs, Ferdy, and many others to boot, but now you can call me Hobo.

After my last relationship finished due to religious and personal reasons (hers not mine) I decided that I was never going to find that someone to share seeing the world with on holiday so decided to go and see it on my own. I left my job took redundancy and am taking a year out (hopefully) to try backpacking (now in its second year).

I have never been a backpacker, never been camping and never been in a hostel till recently so all of this is very new to me. Am I nervous…..? Yes. Do I think I may of made a mistake…..? Possibly, but I do know this if I don’t try now I never will. I’m no spring chicken, no party animal, and definitely not a sun worshiper. However I always like learning, trying new thing, getting out of my comfort zone and have no trouble spending long times with just my own company so don’t be expecting me to go raving all the time or bragging about my all over suntan cos that just ain’t going to happen.

Expect to discover out the way places, different views of big cities small beaches, countryside and some of the bad as well as the good.

So bookmark, subscribe, follow me and come along for the ride and welcome to Hobolife.
