the story

Vagabonding is a round-the- world travelogue created by Mike Pugh, an optimist from Chicago. Mike traveled on his own through Asia and East Africa and updated this site from the road.

The trip is over, but the site remains. All the travelogue, video, and photo entries are in their archives.

Michael, this is outstanding.
I can't tell you how impressed I am.

I am glad to see that you are doing so well.

Furthermore, it's great to see that with a laptop, some kind of modem and a digital camera, you can show your exploration over the internet.

take care!
