Blogger of the Month – Adam Groffman from travelsofadam.com


Hi I’m Adam Groffman. I have a travel blog
called travelsofadam.com, where I write about my various trips around the
world. I cover a bunch of cool hipster cities and a lot of LGBT travel tips So I grew up in Texas actually and lived in Boston for seven years working as a
graphic designer before I decided to quit the corporate
world and go on a backpacking trip around the world where I ultimately
ended up in Berlin, Germany As soon as I graduated I had to work ’cause I had no
money and that’s what you’re supposed to do So I started working immediately
after I graduated and pretty soon it was three years later and I realized I
hadn’t left America. I had barely left Boston. I’d taken just a handful of
trips, I was like working all the time saving my money, you know, trying to
figure out how to be an adult I cannot whistle. When you’re traveling
it’s helpful to like find friends or call a cab or get someone’s attention
and I just can’t do it Berlin is super gay and super queer
actually and there’s some really cool stuff. I love every Monday
the Kino International. They do a Monday queer film night called “Mongay” I always travel with a pen and paper. I’ve got my phone too but battery off and dies. Now Instagram is a big part of that
for me as well You can find cool things to do, you find
other people who are also in that place and often times locals want to share their city, at least the good ones. Like they love where they are so why wouldn’t they want to be an ambassador for it I think everyone loves to receive
something in the mail and a postcard is this perfect connection between home and
abroad or one place and another. For me, sending this to friends and family and
my fans, it just feels so cool to connect with people all over the
world in Indonesia and someone in India and someone in America and the UK and
it’s just cool that there’s all these like lines from where I happen to be and
where other people happen to be and you get this real connection, I think Travel is is this incredible experience
and while it can be very personal I think it’s very social and I wanted
these postcards to be a way for people to connect with the place that they were
and their home where their friends are or wherever they may be going See more and do more. So that’s my motto for
the next year.
