Hi. I’m Dan Vineberg.

The Blog

The world is changing, and so is travel. The New Travel was born from a desire to offer a new look at the world. Instead of clickbait, I believe in storytelling. Instead of selfies at expensive resorts, I focus on budget travel and sharing my passion for hostels.

I’m a long-term budget traveller who has stayed at approximately 100 hostels over the past five years.

If you want to know more about this, check out my reddit AMA. It’s been read hundreds of thousands of times!

I started blogging in 2014 on danvineberg.com, where most of my content can be found. For the first two months, I joke that only my mom read the blog. Then after two months I wrote We’re Told Not to Travel.

The post blew up and I had more views than I knew what to do with. Who would have thought a little post without pictures could get over 3,500 shares on Facebook?

I’ve since expanded the ideas of that post into my first ebook and video guide, The Truth About Travel.

For years, I was too shy to make videos. With 100+ new videos and over 100,000 YouTube views in 2016, you could say that’s changed. Watch now!

The Vlog

I also keep a very active YouTube channel, with new videos every week.

How to Hostel is a travelling series that explains all aspects of hostel life, while showcasing cool hostels from around the world.

My 2 Minute Travels series takes lets you meet locals from destinations around the world.

But enough talk … take a look for yourself!

I have experience working with tour companies, music festivals, hotels and more.

I also designed the website you’re using, so I guess you could say I’m good at that too.

If there is anything I can do to help you, your company, your brand, your website, your friend, or your diabetic cat, don’t hesitate to drop me a line.
