Full Nomad

Exploring what “home-free” means

Unhappy at 42,
I sold everything and went Full Nomad

Sure, I still work,
but I’m living my travel dreams with a location-independent life.

Here’s where I’ll share stories of exploring our world.

Join me as I learn about myself,
explore places, and meet people along the way.

How I Adopted
the Nomad Life

A couple weeks ago, I saw a Humans of New York post on Facebook, and posted a comment encouraging the traveller to consider Workaway.info for free boarding while travelling. Shortly after, some [...]

The Magic of Travel: A Day in Lisbon

Some never stray from the pack, ditch the tour, break the rules, and it saddens me. When crap hits the fan, travel is best. The unpredictable, the unexpected, that’s the magic of travel. [...]

Good Mourning, Vancouver

It’s nearly four weeks to the day I awoke within a few minutes of a Facebook message saying the end seemed nigh for my dad. Within an hour, he was dead. Enter the mourning period. A complicated [...]

Learning Under the Mexican Sun

BritainAh, Britain! Land of my ancestors and my conquerors, the United Kingdom will lure me back relentlessly.
ChallengesThose famous last words apply to full-time travel: "Nobody said it was gonna be easy." Challenges are fun, though... right?
CroatiaA cultural crossroads learning who it can be in a new era, I fell in love with Croatia.
MexicoMexico, the land of mezcal and tacos became home for six months. From insurrection to isolation, it would be a very personal journey.

From travel stories to travel hacks and thoughts on life around the world


Welcome! I’m Steff.

Envious of others living their dreams, on my 39th birthday I set a goal: Pay down debt, then see the world. It was a five-year plan, but three years later I was on a plane to London, England, and a new life. Today, I’m “slow travelling,” working where I find WiFi, and living a life I once thought was unreachable. Overweight and in my 40s, I’m proving travel is endlessly adaptable for anyone. A journalism with a passion for photography, I’ve spent 16 years editing, writing, and blogging my way to where I am now… wherever that is.
