How Your Family and Friends Might React to You Travelling

How Your Family and Friends Might React to You Travelling

How Your Family and Friends Might React to You Travelling   I have been very fortunate that my family did not behave this way, but I’m aware that I am the exception. Here’s what to do before you tell your family and friends about your impending world travels.   In Australia we have a phenomenon called “tall Poppy syndrome” and I have since been told that in America the same concept is called “crabs in a barrel” due to the…

How to Go From Being Broke to Full Time Traveller in Less Than 8 Weeks

How to Become a World Traveller in 5 Easy(ish) Steps   Why I failed to start travelling   Before becoming a “long term traveller”, I had been to many destinations across Asia, the Pacific and had explored most of my home country Australia. Despite all this, I had somehow still not managed to become a long term traveller as none of these trips had been in succession, but were rather all individual trips and holidays. I had been dreaming of…

5 Things Every Digital Nomad has in Common

5 Things Every Digital Nomad has in Common   There is certainly more than enough existing information on how to become a digital nomad, and while this has been more than helpful for myself as I have been taking this journey, I have decided to take a closer look at the attributes, traits and characteristics that separate digital nomads from the would-be travellers who never seem to make it happen.   You may have noticed that I have recently been…

How I lost 18kg (40lb) in Two Days and Barely Avoided Death

Are you holding on to your seat? This one’s a doozy and it’s long. Several years ago I had the experience of losing 18kgs in under two days and completely destroying my microbiotal (gut) health over the following 10 months. This is where travel meets health. About 4 years ago, I was travelling in a part of Australia called the Gascoyne region which is a very remote, dry and arid part of the country as you can see below: I…

Travel is Not Limited to the Privileged – It Doesn’t Even Correlate

Travel is Not Limited to the Privileged – It Doesn’t Even Correlate

Unless you’re male, middle class and white you should be banned from having a passport because that’s the pigeonhole you have to fit in to be “privileged” and as everyone knows, only lucky, privileged people get to travel. Because that’s true isn’t it? Only privileged people get to travel? Bull shit. If you’re lucky enough to own a device where you can read this post, then excluding people with illness or disability, you are able to travel. The reason I’m…

It’s also well known that there’s plenty of content providers regarding what and how to pack, so I’m going to cover why I pack one less shirt than what I could. I’ve rolled up a t shirt the same way I would into my bag, in a way that allows me to pack the most. You can see how…

The Importance of Travel Planning

The Importance of Travel Planning

This will be a short post.   As I’ve said before, one of the most important things to do, to truly achieve the best results of travelling, is not to plan very much at all. This post is to tell you that that statement is still true, but it’s also important to plan.   Yes I understand that the above sentence is disconsonant with itself and that I could have written it in a more congruent way, but that wouldn’t…
