Who’s the man behind the beard? I’m a Canadian freelance journalist, backpacker, and nomad hunting for stories that fascinate me. My work has appeared in Time, National Geographic Travel, The Guardian, Travel + Leisure, ESPN, ViceDazed & Confused, The Toronto Star, Motherboard, The Montreal Gazette and more. I’m also a Lonely Planet writer carrying out guidebook updates around the world.

Hablo español, parle français, y falo português. If you need me, I’ll be eating everything at a local market or taking shots of Wi-Fi at the nearest café. Otherwise, the number to dial is: joelbalsam1@gmail.com
