In the coming weeks we will be giving exclusive access to the tools we use to live a life of freedom – including exactly what we do to enable our permanent travel life – to our subscribers only.
“Really?” I hear the skeptics chorus. I shouldn’t wait another day? But I have years to explore the world and realize all those dreams I keep in a safe place away from daylight.
Michael and I are what some call ‘digital nomads’. Some refer to it as ‘nomadic living’ and others call it ‘perpetual travel’ or ‘full time travel’. I call it living my dreams.
Some people cannot fathom why I would want to live with no possessions and no security. I was never one to conform to what we are led to believe is ‘normal’.
How Travel Changed Me? – Travel has the ability to change a person and after 16 months travel so far, it has definitely changed who I am, for the better.
As full time travelers, the main we question we get asked is – “How can you afford to travel permanently?” House Sitting is of course the answer!
What one gets out of their travels can be quite a personal experience. Some people travel to ‘find themselves’. Some people travel to experience different cultures and customs. Some people travel to see the wonders of the world or the iconic landmarks. And for some people, travel for the feeling of freedom it gives them.
The other day someone said to me “I wish I could do what you are doing”. And my reply – “Why don’t you then?”.
A question we get asked a lot is, “How can you afford to travel permanently?”.
We didn’t win the lottery (I wish!), we didn’t receive a massive inheritance from a long lost uncle nor did we rob a bank (as tempted as I have been!). No, it all came down to hard work and sacrifice.
My pre nomadic life wasn’t a bad one. I was content with the path I had taken. I was running a successful business that I enjoyed; I had a great relationship with my husband (although not technically married, after 14 years together and traveling non stop for 365 days together, ‘boyfriend’ doesn’t quite cut it); And we lived in a nice house in a nice neighborhood. Life was… nice.
