Jim Hopkinson
Review Team

Jim Hopkinson spent many years in the corporate world, using precious vacation time to escape his home base in New York City to explore destinations such as Costa Rica, London, South Africa, and Japan. But since starting his own business in 2011, the published author, speaker, and teacher has fully embraced his location-independent lifestyle, kicking off New Years Day 2012 from Buenos Aires, and exploring the mountains, cities, and beaches of Thailand in September.

As a travel blogger, he possesses a full arsenal of skills: storytelling chops as an author, writer, and podcaster, social media and marketing skills from Conde Nast Publications, and a love of photos, video, and technology from working at Wired.com.
