About Vagobond

I am Vagobond.  (If you’re looking for tour testimonials from my clients or information about hiring me as your private tour guide, this isn’t the right page. This page is about who I am and what this site is.)

VagobondMy name is Christopher ‘Vago’ Damitio. I’m a father, husband, brother, son, writer, editor, philosopher, visionary, app developer and former Marine,former publisher, former stockbroker, former archaeologist, former publisher, former air traffic controller, former antique store owner & appraiser, former anthropologist, former columnist, former waiter/bartender/barista/cook/dishwasher, former anarchist community organizer, and former a bunch of other things. I’ve traveled a fair bit of the world, explored many of the great religions, and lived both as a rich person and as a homeless person along with everything in between. I’ve written books, written screenplays, directed films, recorded music, played in bands, and love to paint and make any kind of art. Creativity is my main mode. I’m secular with a great admiration for Buddhist philosophy and stoicism. I am a disrupter, a rabble rouser, a shortish middle-aged bald man with skin that looks whiter and pinker than I feel. I like VW vans, sailboats, islands, and very long walks. I enjoy the ideas behind cryptocurrency, universal basic income, a border free world, and an end to toxic masculinity. My motto is “Stop doing bad things. Start doing good things. Help others to stop doing bad things and start doing good things.” I try to live up to it, but since I’m human, I don’t always.

Vagobond is a website I started back in 2008 after I graduated from the University of Hawaii. It was and is a record of my travels. It became infected with viruses in 2016 and I took it offline until October 2018 when I brought it back with a new installation, better security, and a new look and focus. I currently live in Hawaii and work as a tour guide so a big focus is to share this place in as much detail as I can. I am also sharing my past adventures and travels on #flashbackfriday and #slideshowsaturday.  A big part of my motivation is sharing my life with my daughter and also documenting the adventures that she has and is a part of. I write about economics, politics, and other non-travel related stuff on a separate site Vagorithm.com. I’ve also recently started doing a weekly podcast called Vagobond Podcast Adventures.

I will update this page as time goes on. There’s a lot to go on here.
