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
You can hover over these (or any image) to quickly pin it!
*None of these men knew of this nomination. It was once again a very “stalk, steal (their photos), and yell SURPRISE across social media” kind of operation.
Jeremy Scott Foster
Jeremy Scott Foster: One year out of college, Jeremy gave up the ordinary life in search of something slightly more unusual. He quit his job, booked a flight to the other side of the world, and never looked back. That was five years ago, and it was the best decision of his life.
He has been working his way around the world as a blogger and cocktail bartender, and through his blog has created a lifestyle for himself which suits his strengths while offering the creativity and freedom to do and roam as he pleases. His intention is to inspire you to do the very same.
And, ladies…if you have the chance to catch him bungee jumping … he has a habit of jumping naked. Click to enlarge [below photos].

Erik Prince: Erik is a former US Air Force Aerospace Engineer, photographer, philanthropist, and world traveler on a quest to become the first African American to visit every country in the world.
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

Lee Abbamonte: Lee Abbamonte was described by Arthur Frommer (founder of Frommers Guidebooks) as the Marco Polo of the 21st Century…though Marco Polo wasn’t this good looking! The youngest American to visit every country in the world, Lee has visited 318 total countries and is one of the world’s most-traveled people. Hot men who travel the world.
Some of his extreme traveling highlights include hang gliding over Rio de Janeiro, dodging bullets in the Libyan civil war, conquering the world’s highest bungee jump in South Africa, tracking silverback gorillas in Rwanda, summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, playing golf in Afghanistan during the war, going on safari in the Serengeti, and white-water rafting down the level-five rapids of the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe.

Adam Lukaszewicz: A Mechanical Engineer by profession, burnt out from the past several years working in the food processing world, so took off to see the real world. I want to date a hot man who travels the world
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
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!!

Guy Richardson: An up-for-anything adventure addict who loves scuba diving, mountain biking and hiking, Guy’s love of travel started with a family trip to Fiji and he has never forgotten the incredible hospitality of the people or the pristine, crystal clear waters. Best looking male travelers.
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.

Best looking men who travel

Jmayel El-haj: Jmayel is a professional photographer, part Burmese, African, Arabic & Scottish and was born in raised in London.
J caught the Travel Bug from now wife Sacha when she decided she wanted to embark on a Round the World trip in 2005-2006. When he returned a normal life didn’t satisfy the relentless need for more adventure and they set about finding a way to travel on a more permanent basis.
In April 2012 that dream became reality when they set off on the first leg of their adventure to Thailand and began the Cinematic Travel Vlog known as 8 Miles from Home. Who are the most sexy travelers on earth?

Matt Johnson: Matt is a Michigan boy who grew up without ever setting foot aboard a sailboat, though now he sails around the world! He decided to take up sailing as a hobby one summer in 2008, and since then it’s been an obsession.
Together with his wife Jess, they have been cruising in a Sabre 34 Targa since January 2010, hitting up destinations like the east coast of the US, the Bahamas, Cuba, Central America, and and last year sailing across the Atlantic to the Azores, Madeira, and Canary Islands before crossing back to the Caribbean.

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.

Healthy is the New Sexy
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.
