I remember the first time I heard the word nomad. I was watching a tiny house transformation on You Tube, and they kept referring to living a nomad life.

It interested me hearing the modern spin of a nomad life, and realizing that we really are not that different from history.

About a year and a half ago my mom brought to my attention a great idea, when planning our family trips all parties going on the trip transfer money into one savings account to keep track of how much we have collectively before the trip and to all pitch in to one account.

Workaway changed all the expectations I had for travel. I always assumed it to be a luxury for the wealthy and the free, but that never stopped me from planning, saving, and hoping that I would be able to pull off a big trip after Sixth form. I ended up experiencing the most amazing year of my life at 18, without ever actually having a real job.
