Hey man, good work, inspiring reads and great info. I am busking in Avignon S france, you got any advice or info on the place? Also.. the 500 pm to live in Antibes, maybe you can explain in more detail what it is i have to do.. staying there for a few months in order to qualify may be tricky.. Hope you are well…


The Runaway Guide July 7, 2014 at 3:45 am

Hey Josef,
To be honest, given the financial troubles, it’s possible the french government has discontinued their 500 euro/month deal.
But if you can still get it, you need to apply at the social service center. Most homeless guys can tell you where it is. Good luck!

Howdy Leif,

We’re really inspired by your blog — style and content are top notch! We are traveling in New Zealand now and plan to be in Nepal a little later this year. I’m very interested to know the name and or contact info of the “Runaway Retreat” you’ve written about in Bardia National Park. We are definitely gonna head that way.


Dennis & Becca


The Runaway Guide June 10, 2014 at 3:56 pm

Hey Dennis and Becca, thanks a lot! I really appreciate that. That sounds awesome. You should look up Jack on Facebook at “Bardia Bkr” He’ll give you all the details. Safe travels! -Leif


Lauren March 4, 2014 at 10:23 pm

Hi Leif! I kind of sort of broke and I’m not at all religious or spiritual so I can’t pray for you or anything, but keep traveling. You’re an awesome person who leads an inspiring life, and when I’m out of school I plan on backpacking quite a bit. Safe travels!


The Runaway Guide March 5, 2014 at 2:59 am

Hey Lauren, I hear ya, thanks! Let me know when the time comes and I’ll help you plan something :)


Lauren March 5, 2014 at 4:06 pm

That would be amazing! I might actually be studying abroad in a couple years in Turkey or India. I think I told you this via facebook a while ago but there’s of course all sorts of kinks to work out :/


The Runaway Guide March 7, 2014 at 6:32 am

Sounds great! Let me know when the day gets sooner and I’ll see if I can’t find you a cheap flight :)


Ernest February 20, 2014 at 5:15 am

Hey Leif,
Interested in feeding you, I am a bit put of by a picture of you eating at the “M-place” as first picture of you feeding yourself. If that is where you plan to spend the feeding money…………


The Runaway Guide February 21, 2014 at 9:44 am

That’d be great, cheers. Hahah, sometimes I get the craving but then I’m always disappointed by it. Definitely getting over McDonalds these days.


Ernest February 21, 2014 at 1:40 pm

Hahahaha…. Well…… you’re forgiven
But still… I’d put that sandwich picture on top ;-)


Froggy February 13, 2014 at 12:18 am

LOL, I noticed that you took off “I will name my first future unborn child after you.” What happened to that? LOLLLL. Sending you good thoughts! Hope you’re having a blast, whereever in the world you are!


The Runaway Guide February 19, 2014 at 7:04 am

Hahaha, realizing that there are more crazy people on the internet than I thought and that someone might take it literally. Thanks Froggy! I’m in Sweden btw.

Hey Leif I just wanted to say i’m a huge fan of your blog and you along with many others have inspired me to backpack/travel around the world. I’m looking to head out in the next year or so and I was wondering if you were interested in traveling with me. I’m very new to this but I really would like to live the lifestyle you do. The adventures, the experiences, the freedom you experience sounds all too amazing. Please get back to me at ibndjallen@yahoo.com thank you.
Best regards from New York
