about foxnomad

My name is Anil Polat, a blogger and computer security engineer who’s been traveling around the world for the past seven years. Along the way I set the goal of visiting every country on the planet – I’m currently around 90 – although I’m in no particular rush. I have traveled to places from Cuba, Yemen, to Iceland and began this blog as a way to share the tips and tech you can use to travel smarter.

Below is some of the gear I’m asked most about; here’s the full list of tech I travel with.

I’ve been published by like WIRED, Lifehacker, PC World, appeared in Nokia commercials, been given a car by Ford, and developed an app of airport wifi passwords to help you stay connected around the world.

I write twice a week – on Tuesdays and Thursdays – you can keep up with me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. If inboxes are more your thing, subscribe via email or monthly newsletter. You can also find me on YouTube.


Traveling From An Early Age

I started traveling at a very early age, moving back and forth between Turkey and the United States tagging along with my journalist parents to other destinations as well. Before I began traveling extensively, I was a full-time computer security consultant for 6 years, traveling very often for my job.

Over the years I learned to minimize my belongings, adapt to frequently changing environments, and make the most out of my tech gadgets. You can also learn to become a traveling hacker on any trip – saving money, seeing more of the world, and using your laptop as the wonderful travel companion you never knew you had.
