Nathan James Thomas, originally from New Zealand, bought a ticket for 20,000 kilometres on the Greyhound Bus network in Australia when he was 17 years old. Over the next decade he lived in China, Spain, Poland, and Hungary, visiting and experiencing dozens of other countries along the way.
In 2014, Nathan founded the digital travel magazine Intrepid Times as a vehicle for sharing stories from the road and as an excuse to meet and interview his favorite writers. It has since grown into a thriving global community of thousands of writers and travellers. Nathan’s own travel writing has been published in places like Roads and Kingdoms and Outpost Magazine.
With his two previous Exisle Publishing titles, Fearless Footsteps and Travel Your Way, Nathan presents a vision of travel that is both challenging and humbling, an experience not of finding yourself, but of losing yourself and becoming immersed in the places where you find yourself.
