INDIE TRAVEL & LOCATION-INDEPENDENT LIFESTYLE

At Tinkertown Indie Media, we believe in all things indie. And that includes independent travel and the location-indepedence lifestyle. Both Kim and Robert have traveled to dozens of countries and are widely published in travel media (including National Geographic, Lonely Planet, New York Times, Marie Claire, etc.). This page holds some of our favorite experiences, locations, tips and videos. The Tinkertown Travel Hall of Fame is updated frequently, as we go through our library of photos and footage over the past several years of working as freelancers around the world, so be sure to subscribe to our monthly zine and catch the latest crazy story or helpful how-to.
