Keith Savage of Traveling-Savage.com caught our attention with his passion for experiential travel and pragmatic approach to achieving it: he will spend one month absorbing the culture of a country, return home for 3 months to write, reflect, and reconnect with his wife & 3 cats, and then start the whole process anew in a different locale. And in case you are wondering, Traveling Savage isn’t just a play on his name; it is an expression of his traveling mantra - To travel savagely is to embrace with open arms the entire voyage, to cast aside conceptions – even your old self, if necessary – so that you can find your savage and exuberant core.
