Hi, I’m Ricky Fry. 👋🏻

I do a lot of different things. Like most creative people, I struggle to put my various interests and projects in a single box.

This site pulls them all together, from my nomadic lifestyle to the books I’m writing and the products I’m creating.

If you want to learn more about me and the projects I’m working on, keep reading, otherwise you can skip ahead to the most popular articles.


Since 2017, I’ve traveled full-time with nothing more than a single carry-on bag.

My favorite places are mostly in Eastern Europe and the Balkans; with Ukraine, Albania, North Macedonia, and Serbia topping the list.

I’m also quite fond of Latin America.

I spent all of 2020 in Tbilisi, Georgia, when the borders locked down because of the COVID-19 crisis. The people were great, the food was good, and being rooted in one place for a long stretch helped me complete two novels. At least a few people seem to like them. 😉
