Simply Geek #11.2 – Travelling Geeks (Part 2)

As the summer starts to show signs of ending, (at least in the northern hemisphere), many of us are back from holiday vacations. So we gather up a group of geeks who love to travel. Our good friend Preetam Rai, who loves to travel in East Asia; Inder Sen, a traveler who’s recently done a awesome hitchhiking trip in India at a almost impossible budget; and our very own Farinelli to talk about how they continue to be geeky while they travel and experience new people, places and situations. What tools, tricks and tips they use on the road.

This discussion is split into two episodes. This is part 2, and starts half-way through the discussion. You can check out the part 1 of discussion on the previous Episode of Simply Geek.
