Diplo estimates that he's been on more than 5,000 planes in his life, so when it comes to nomad life, he's kind of an expert. He recently sat down with GQ to talk about his tricks and tips for the constant traveler. Sure, you don't have the kind of money Diplo has (presumably), but you can at least learn form his mistakes.

“I don’t even want to leave when I’m at some of them,” he says of the Chinese hangs. “They have everything right there in the hotel.”
