Last year we thought it would be a fun way to recognize the adventurous spirit and inspiring lifestyles of 21 deserving male travelers by awarding the title of “Sexiest Travelers of 2014”. And the post quickly became a viral hit, crashing our site 4 times in the first day; proving that adventure has been the new sexy for a while now! Date a boy who travels. Where to find a boy who travels.

Because it’s unlikely you’ll find yourself bored dating a boy who travels. He treasures experiences over toys, and talks of distant places. His hands have explored the stone relics of ancient civilizations, and he has lived out of a backpack because he lives happily with less. He is enthusiastic about the world, and passes on that enthusiasm to you. Sexy traveling men.

With these qualities in mind, the following are the sexiest male travelers of 2015. If we’ve missed your favorite traveler, they could very well have been featured in last year’s list. Otherwise leave us a comment with your nomination for next year! Sexy male travelers sexy boys who travel

His seediest travel vice is food and and debating with other westerners. “Apparently American’s that can carry a strong conversation are rare out here. I’ve spent many long hostel nights debating the merits of capitalism and why the hell Miley Cyrus matters (still arguing this one).”

In 2016 he plans to hit 100 countries and complete a full continent. His primary purpose for traveling is to inspire and motivate low income students and people of color to travel. African American men who travel

Adam’s perfect day would start with an amazing sunrise, preferably on a beach or in front of something amazing like, say, Angkor Wat (not because he is a morning person, he just likes to photograph them).

After the camera gear is packed away, he would jump on a dive boat bound for a reef full of fish and colorful coral. After about 3 tanks it would be back to shore for happy hour and the sunset. Sexiest male travelers

For dinner would be green curry, followed by a Belgian beer (unlikely to happen in a beach restaurant, but he can hope). The perfect end to the night would be a massive bon fire on the beach surrounded by friends, and more beers.

Two Bad Tourists

David Brown Two Bad Tourists

Auston Matta and David Brown: As a young gay couple, Auston and David have a unique perspective on travel. Whether it’s Pride hopping around Europe or traveling in Africa where gay rights are negligible, they are constantly exposed to new experiences and unfamiliar cultures.

Though they consider themselves to be great travelers, they are most definitely (by their own account) Bad Tourists. But they assure us that this is a good thing! They like to travel “their way” and not the way you’re “supposed to.” They try to avoid the pressure of hyper-sightseeing and prefer to experience a destination as if you lived in that city. Are men who travel sexy?

They might be bad tourists, but they’re certainly not bad looking!!

Since marrying his beautiful wife Kim-ling (sorry girls!), his life has been a whirlwind of trips around Europe, North America and South-East Asia.

Guy speaks decent French, unintelligible Spanish and failed miserably at trying to learn Arabic. Despite being completely unaware of his lack of ability (Kim-ling’s words not mine), he loves learning languages and exploring cultures by talking with locals. I want to date a boy who travels.

Boomer Pick – Mike Hinshaw

Last year we missed the Baby Boomer Generation, an obvious oversight on our part! Because men over 50 are sexy too!

For Those Who Love a Beard – Chris Walker-Bush

There was outrage after last years list for having excluded ginger bearded men from the countdown (running joke), and while a number of the men on last year’s list sported admirable stubble, there was not a single full beard to be found. Obviously another oversight on my part….because bearded men are sexy too! How to look sexy when you travel

Chris Walker-Bush: Rocking a full ginger beard, it’s a tragic result of his upbringing that Chris has absolutely zero interest in ever holding down a down 9 to 5 job, raising 2.5 rug rats, and having a mortgage. Instead, he daydreams about a life of scuba diving, beaches, drinking, video gaming, and new adventures.

In the seven years since this wide-eyed and naive country boy stepped on the plane from Sydney to Seoul, he has lived and taught English in two countries (China and South Korea), visited a further thirteen countries, written a Chinese sitcom, been on safari, fallen in love a few times, fallen out of love an equal number of times, been aimed at by a sniper, fallen asleep on distant beaches, drank a lot of beer, and loved every minute of it.

Return Favorite – Danny Flood

There were no plans to include an overlap of those travelers who made last year’s list, but the world then caught a glimpse of Danny Flood shirtless, in mid karate kick, overlooking the Grand Canyon, and there was nothing we could do!

Danny Flood: 2015 has been a busy year for Danny, a world nomad since 2009 who now calls Thailand home. Though he has “only” visited eight countries this year, the newly turned 30 year-old has shown no signs of slowing down. Danny’s been active on the business-front; publishing five Amazon best-selling books, a Udemy course, and launching his first Indiegogo campaign to inspire other would-be adventurers.

He is raising funds to take his online magazine (OpenWorld Magazine) to the next level.

Healthy is the New Sexy

Never travel without international health insurance

This post was brought to you by Timothy Jennings at Individual Health. Because life has no assurance, and when you’re traveling internationally it’s absolutely essential that you set yourself up with international health insurance.

International medical coverage is such an important issue for those who travel abroad, and comprehensive health coverage is something you never want to find yourself stuck overseas without. So why do so many travelers still travel without it? You wouldn’t go away without your tickets or your passport, so why risk going away without a proper health insurance plan?

Things happen when you least expect it, and you don’t need to be taking a crazy adventurous trip to find yourself in an emergency situation. You could be in the very best of health, however the fact is that environmental factors are beyond your control. All it takes is one major health incident to bankrupt you for life, or worse, see you refused emergency medical care because you don’t have the insurance and can’t afford to pay.

Pro Tip: If you haven’t yet purchased international travel health insurance, obviously make sure you do. Our guy is Timothy Jennings at Individual Health who has a huge range of insurance plans which includes insurance with #GeoBlue.

GeoBlue is a worldwide insurer who offer the most complete set of benefits and services in the industry, and make their best attempt to arrange direct payment no matter which medical provider you see. That means no need to lay out any of your holiday cash, and you don’t have to even worry about filing a claim.

  1. Santaaaaa I know what I want for Christmas! 😉

    • Secret is safe with me 😉

    • The mermen are my fav for the most fun too! And Will Hatton is a solid choice 😀

    • So glad you enjoyed it! Merry Christmas!

  2. I love your list of sexy male travelers, and I’m so happy to see my husband’s name up there! 🙂 I think I may have to slowly scroll through the rest of those names too, haha.
    Jessica recently posted…Throwback Thursday: Caye Caulker…Go SlowMy Profile

    • Thankyou Jessica! And wouldn’t be a list without Matt! Happy holidays 🙂

    • Glad to hear it Amy! Absolutely!

    • Wouldn’t be a list without you! Happy holidays 🙂

    • What can I say, digging the ginger beard too lol 😀 Totally agree that the ultimate guy for any girl is a traveler – I count myself very lucky that I found a husband and a travel companion all in one!

      Merry Christmas – hopefully your travels see you bump into a few of these in 2016!

    • Thanks Rhonda!! So glad you enjoyed the post 🙂

  3. Ooft – this was a really enjoyable read. I think you missed the Scottish (lean) beef – Craig from Two Scots Abroad… Though Stefan and Sebastien – top notch!! Merry Christmas Megan.
    Gemma recently posted…Blogging Is Making Me SickMy Profile

    • Very true!! Can’t believe I missed Craig! Well, his name is here in the comments now and this is the first place I visit for nominations when completing next year’s list 😀

    • Haha! Craig is a cutie!! Was also gonna throw out a vote for my soon-to-be-husband Nathan. 😉 I always tell him how sexy he was when I first saw him in that Edinburgh hostel. Of course, I thought he was Eastern European or something at first glance. Didn’t expect the slight Southern drawl to come out! lol 🙂 and yes, Sebastien and Stefan soooooo perfect!!!

    • Thanks Gemma 🙂 xxxxxxxxx

  4. Great list! Not good for guys like us whose better halfs might be peeking at this list and then urging us to get in shape! Definitely not good for a guy who has a girl who travels and who himself doesnt! And totally definitely most certainly not for someone working this Christmas 🙂 But great list nevertheless!!

    • Thanks Rishabh! Thanks and sorry 😀 :S! lol. Sorry to hear you had to work on Christmas though – I hope the holidays have been fabulous in lieu of having to be at work on the actual day. We’ll have female list coming out for you to peek at next week 😀

    • Thanks Jasmine! There are some pretty all round superstars out there traveling the world!

  5. What about the thousands who are not in the public eye or with a blog or who constantly want attention and publicity?

    Most travelers don’t do the digital nomad crap and some even have no blogs.
    I feel it’s to the point where some travelers care more about blogs than they do seeing the world. The fact it these men have the stereotypical model body. That is only sexy to some people. You should change the title to “Western idea of Sexiest travelers in the public eye.”

    • What Chris said. Not all of these men have a stereotypical model body, not all of them are digital nomads who travel full time, and not all of them actually have a blog – note that I linked to Tyson’s Facebook page as he doesn’t have a website yet.

      This is a fun way of recognizing the inspiring lifestyles of 20 odd men out there who I believe deserve the recognition. And the list is quite diverse covering what sexy would mean to quite a number of people – you can hardly lump this group into the same stereotype. So I’m pretty good with the title I’ve got, but thanks.

  6. Fab list. Possible choices for next year matjoez and sam yeldham. The travel blokes ?

    • Thanks so much! And noted on the nomination for the travel blokes 🙂 Merry Christmas!

    • You travel in quite good company!

    • Happy Birthday! Hey, no promises, but I’ll see what I can do 😛

  7. Very nice! Someone want to tackle a “silver foxes” edition for the empty-nest set? So far I haven’t encountered even one solo male traveler in my age bracket. They must be out there!
    Lauren recently posted…When You Have to Make Your Own Holiday MagicMy Profile

    • Thanks Lauren! I’ll start compiling a list during 2016 for a silver fox edition perhaps next year! They would be out there for sure!

    • 😀 Glad you enjoyed the post. Will’s seemed to dominate the post this year – 3 of them lol

    • You are most welcome 😀 Happy to help!

    • Happy to hear it! Glad you enjoyed the post 🙂

    • Absolutely! Couldn’t have said it better myself 🙂

    • Absolutely – wouldn’t be a list without you 🙂 Happy new year!

    With no flights!!!!!

  9. Haha. I love the intro! Stalk and steal their photos… not at all creepy. Good selection though. I might have to do a little stalking of my own based on this…
    Arianwen recently posted…Vietnam Travel TipsMy Profile

    • Not creepy at all right 😀 Some of them I dug through their photos pretty intensely to find an amusing one lol was a fun day putting this all together!

    • That’s the spirit! Lol … nomination noted 😀

    • Haha glad you enjoyed it Mary! And yes, couldn’t leave off our favorite ginger bearded man this year :D!
