Chris Backe (rhymes with hockey) is an author, travel blogger, game designer, and entrepreneur. Along with his wife, Laura, he’s lived as a digital nomad since March 2013, and was an expat teaching English in South Korea from 2008-2013. He’s written dozens of guidebooks for cities and countries around the world, and the travel blog One Weird Globe has covered weird and bizarre destinations since 2008.
As nomads, Chris and Laura spent two years in Thailand (six months each in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Khon Kaen, and Krabi), three months across Western Europe, about nine months in South America, about a year in the US and Canada (primarily on an epic 17,000km road trip from Nova Scotia to Key West — and back), three months in Croatia, three months in Romania, three months in Germany, three months in Bulgaria, and (currently) three months in Serbia.
When not traveling, writing, or making games, Chris loves a good pizza and/or a good beer.
