Hi, I’m Thom – the brains behind the travel operation. While Ashlae’s busy testing new recipes, I can usually be found devising new stratagems to hop about the globe. When I’m not trip planning, I devote a majority of my time to studying the European colonization of Africa and the fall of the Soviet Union. I enjoy reading Wikipedia (a lot), film, and 1,000+ piece puzzles of impressionist paintings. I do not like coffee, personal space invaders, or people who do not instinctively yell I-O! when I yell O-H!
