Deciding to Go Nomad

The blog started right after we got to our first stop here in Panama, but the dream and the planning of going nomadic began about six months prior.

I think Todd's reasons for going are similar to mine, but I'll speak for myself for now.

Traveling has always been one of my favorite things. Ever since I was fortunate enough to go to Taiwan when I was 13 (Thanks Charlie!), I had the bug. Not only to travel, but to go off the beaten path. Honduras is more appealing than San Francisco.

Traveler Interview: John of JetSetCitizen

On Alan's Journey

A few weeks ago I decided to start interviewing other 'perpetual travelers' who are already living the kind of life I want to live. The first interview that I'm honoured to publish is with John Bardos of JetSetCitizen. I hope you enjoy reading his insights about travel.

Hi John, thank you for this interview. Could you please tell us about yourself?

I’m a Canadian that lived in Japan for 13 years. I owned a small group of English schools for about 10 years. In 2008, my wife and I made a one year plan to sell our business, house and all our possessions to begin a new travel lifestyle. In March 2009, we reached our goal, one month ahead of schedule, and have been location independent since.

Why did you decide to start travelling?

I first left Canada, back in 1997 because I didn’t want to start working in a cubicle at some large corporation. I never wanted the traditional ideas of a good job, a nice house and 40 plus years of work until retirement. I’m an entrepreneur at heart so I need the challenge and excitement of uncertain activities like travel.
