Today marks our one year anniversary of being fully nomadic. It’s kind of incredible to believe that we’ve been living out of our backpacks, with no permanent address, and no official home base, for the past 365 days. In some ways it has gone by incredibly quickly. In other ways it feels like this is how we’ve always lived, going where we want, when we want.
We’ve learned a crazy amount about the world and ourselves over the past year. Next week we’ll share our reflections on being ‘digital nomads’, whether we think we’ll travel like this forever, and what we’ve learned about the lifestyle. But today we just wanted to reminisce for a bit about where the past year has taken us.
When we left Taiwan, we didn’t have an itinerary or a plan. Looking back, it’s kind of crazy where we decided to go and how much time we decided to spend in each country. Some places, like Panama, we never intended on visiting – but we ended up going twice and have plans to stop through again in about two months.
Overall, the past year took us to: Vietnam, Costa Rica, Panama, Mexico, Sweden, Finland, Norway, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Canada and Brazil. We like to think that we travel rather slowly, but looking back at all that we crammed into one year, we’re not so sure anymore!
We hope you’ll reminisce with us as we take you through a whirlwind of photos and memories. A huge thanks to everyone that has been reading and following along with all of our journeys. If you missed some of them, you can always read up on all of the countries and adventures from our Destinations Page.
Back to Panama
We hope you’ll check back with us next week to see our Reflections on One Year of Nomadic Travels: In Words. Are we going to travel like this forever? Are we getting tired of traveling? What have been the highs and lows of one year of nomadic living? We’ll spill all the answers!
What have been your favorite travel stories and photos we covered from the past year? Where would you go if you had the freedom to just go anywhere? As always, feedback and comments greatly appreciated!
