Borderless exists so you can put your laptop where it was designed to go:
And travel the world in your own style, your own way, and on your own timeline. Dreaming always feels better from a canal-side café in Venice.
I’d been deeply in love with one person for 12 years. Working for the same company for almost the same time. It was all very commendable for a gal approaching 30, except that I hadn’t seen ANY of the global things I’d always dreamed of. I’d satisfied my endless wanderlust by moving super regularly around Australia, living and working in all 7 states and hundreds of towns and suburbs.
I left the relationship and job about the same time. It was also a time when I started temporarily caring for a loved one suffering depression, and also dealing with my own health issues that arose from ignoring my passions. It was a brutal change, but I love to look back on it. It’s when my full and insta-worthy life really started. As the structures dissolved, so did my borders. I packed a (far too large) suitcase and moved again… to Europe! I felt more at home being free than I ever had in any house, and have been travelling ever since. That was 4 years ago, and I now split my time between pursuing my “yes list”, called Project Curious, and helping other entrepreneurs explore the world through Borderless. Do you have a big life change story? Your stories inspire me, please do get in touch and share!
Simply, a person who travels while working, generally leveraging technology remotely to perform jobs that would traditionally have been done in an office. Digital nomads are entrepreneurs and professionals who are often writers, web designers, graphic designers, and other types of knowledge providers who can perform their work from anywhere on earth.
Simply, a digital nomad is someone who uses technology to do their work from anywhere. (Bless the internet!)
What does it mean to have a travel lifestyle? Many things to many people. If we took Instagram as our example, it may seem like lifestyle travellers are constantly on the move. But that is rarely the case. Sometimes, digital nomads stay in the same place for months, or even a year at a time! A travel lifestyle can look any way it works for you. It does not always mean packing up and shifting daily!
If you have ever been put off changing to a travel based lifestyle because of this myth, or because you have a family to consider, or because you’d like to have a stable base to return to, please know that your travel lifestyle can be anything you wish! Make it what you dream of.
There are many different styles of travel – adventurous, luxury, relaxed, high energy… and everything in between.
I am a mix of all of these! I like to explore a range of experience types and I hope this will always be the case! I am proof you can have both matching luggage and wear hiking boots. I have slept outside for months at a time, stayed in 6 and 7 star luxury hotels, and overnighted many times on boats and trains. I believe variety is the spice of life, and I aim cover this variety in my writings.
My big dream? To have a series of “tiny homes” in gorgeous locations around the world to country hop forevermore. This is becoming a reality with my first tiny property purchase in Italy in 2016.
