NOMADIC LIFESTYLE – MEANING
A nomadic lifestyle is a life on the road in constant movement. To live like a nomad means that you don’t have a fixed home, your home is the road and the entire world.
It all sounds cool, bohemian, and sort of romantic, but if you want to live as a nomad there are a few things about the nomad life that you should know:.
- you need to learn how to stay organized, if you have a business or a remote job
- you will miss shopping
- you may feel lonely, sometimes, but there are ways not to, and I will tell you how. In extreme situations, there is always Tinder 😉
- having a balanced healthy life can be a struggle
- no, the digital nomads don’t usually work from the beach. 🙂
- you will miss a sense of belonging, but sometimes it’s a good thing.
- it’s not always rainbows and unicorns
So if all the above is stronger than your love for freedom and travel, the sense of having the world at your feet, the excitement of meeting new people at every move, discovering new cultures, tasting new food, opening up to the unknown, then you might want to reconsider becoming a digital nomad!
Nothing wrong. The good part is that living a nomad life should be a choice, never an imposition.
WAYS OF LIVING AS A NOMAD
There are different ways to live a nomad life. You can decide to move fast, and change place every day or week or you can take it slow, like I do, and spend months in a place before moving on to the next one. There is not a specific rule, obviously.
One of the perks of the nomadic life is that you are free to pick any place and make it your temporary home. That’s what I love the most about this life.
Now, some people decide to have this experience when they are young, maybe after collage and before finding a regular job, and if they love the nomad life, they decide to find a way to work while the travel.
Other people, like me, decide to switch to this life when they are older, just because it has never occurred to us before that it was possible.
To each one its own. There is no limit determined by age, gender, nationality, or education. You can create the life that you want, just by make a goal and work towards it, as simple as that.
You can be a nomad, and find a temporary job or an exchange program to sustain your living but I find it a little more difficult because you have to deal with immigration laws and work permits of the country you are living in.
Or you can be a “digital nomad” meaning that you work on line and you only need your laptop and not to worry about work permits or anything else.
I will talk about both situations, as I was a nomad taking local jobs in my past and worked in Jamaica, Antigua, Seychelles, Egypt, Greece, and Mexico as a tour rep and that’s what helped me being a nomad a the time when the digital world was still a mystery. Yes, I am that old.
At the time I was dreaming about a nomadic life in freedom and now I am living it and I would like to help you find your own path to freedom!

Be patient while I am creating a massive guide on the main jobs digital nomads do to afford their life on the road and you can do that too. You will learn how many possibilities you have to find the job of your dream and the one that best suits with your skills and know how.
But also you will find inspiration to reinvent yourself and maybe discover that creative part of yours that has been denied for so long or any other way of making money that you have never thought of.
