This page started as a post on the regular Karavansara blog.
You can read that post here.
Basically, these are the results of my search for the truth about being adventurers as a profession.
I’ll update this page whenever I have the opportunity.
In case you have an article or video to point out, please drop me a line in the comments, and I’ll add it to the list.
A very thorough analysis, by adventurer and author Alastair Humphreys
Basic information and strategy on WikiHow
A short video on the National Geographic website
A down-to-earth take on the subject by long-distance cyclist/explorer Tom Allen
Tim Moss’ very detailed breakdown of how much an adventurer makes (or doesn’t), and how.
Nicole Manuel on the nitty-gritty of making it a paying job…
Mark Eveleigh on the Kitbaggers website offers an inspirational read
Treme.ie makes it sound pretty easy…
Michael Nichols addresses a specific segment of the “adventurer” class.
Very thorough and stimulating article from the Abroadio web magazine.
And finally, a video from the ReWildUniversity channel…
And here we are, for starters.
… and they all seem to boil down to one basic idea: you can be an adventurer, as long as you take yourself seriously.
Any other resource worth listing that I missed?
