Michael Hodson

Overland traveler and writer

Michael Hodson is an attorney that decided to close his practice at the end of 2008 and get serious about travel, one of the true passions of his life. He embarked on a circumnavigation of the globe on his birthday in December of 2008 with a slight twist -- no air travel whatsoever. Sixteen months, forty-four countries, and six continents later, he succeeded and made his way back home. He is now temporarily living in Colombia, working on his extremely poor Spanish skills and writing a book about his trip. He blogs at and you can find him on Twitter as @mobilelawyer.
