You wake up in a strange land. All your possessions are in your small suitcase. Your home is wherever you lay your head. You can leave tonight, striking out to the next destination. You can stay another month, a year, learn the language, become part of the community. It’s entirely up to you.
For some, that sounds lonely, scary. For others, it’s exciting. The dream. If this is you, then you’re in the right place.
‘Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost’ is a short guide containing the practical nitty-gritty tips and experience I’ve gained from a total of over four years of living life on the road.
This is the guide that I wish I had read when I decided to hop that first flight, and set out in pursuit of freedom and adventure. Here’s a taste of what’s inside
- It’s about freedom. From the moment you start idly Googling possible destinations from your laptop to the time when you return home with a scraggy beard and a swag full of stories, you want to set things up and make decisions which maximize your freedom and flexibility. Here’s how that’s done
- Don’t leave the iron on! You’re heading out of the door, but who’s taking care of things back home? With a few ‘travel hacks’ you’ll cut down on the reasons that could force you to return home, and help to extend your trip for as long as the thrill lasts
- Money matters: whether you see yourself as a ‘digital nomad’ conquering the world from your laptop, or an itinerant wanderer changing jobs on the road, the practical need to earn and save money can in fact be the making, not the breaking of an epic adventure
- Plenty of practical, real world advice, stories drawn from my own personal experience, links, resources, ideas (and – fair warning – bad jokes) to help you define a life that isn’t limited by geography, and that stays fun and free for as long as you choose.
