If you are following this blog, you are familiar with a fellow writer named Gustav from Sweden. He is “The Modern Nomad” traveling the world, doing what he loves most. But pulling up stakes and living a life “in the world” takes some work and a little creative financing.
I have been following Gustav for some time now and seen him travel all over the world. He shares a passion of one of my good friends in South Africa who spent a year traveling the world trying to find a new home. He eventually settled in Cape Town South Africa. I am scheduled to visit him this year, pending financial freedom.
But I digress …
Gustav has set his year finances up on the blog this past week. And shown us just what it takes to live the Nomad Lifestyle. They say that we all need to find our passion and that when we find it – to do that passion – and money will follow.
Gustav has angels who permit him the lifestyle that he is now living. But we now know his needs and he has asked us to help him further his adventure. Which means asking you my readers to go click the link above and read what he has to say about his travels and his needs.
I know I have some adventurers that read this blog who may have some wisdom to impart if not go the extra mile to help him live the next year with some financial freedom. Gustav does some freelancing work from where ever he rests his head, but he could always use some extra work to pad the expenses he incurs.
This is a call for you all to put on your thinking caps and come up with new ways for him to make some much needed cash on the fly. Like I said he has certain benefactors who permit him to travel. But one more benefactor could make his life a little easier.
Do you work in the airline industry? Of know someone who does?
Could you use a little network help or do you know someone who could employ a freelancer on the world wide web?
Do you have ideas or would you want to join the Modern Nomad angel club yourself? Would you like to participate in the Modern Nomad journey?
It only takes a few minutes to go read and participate in the journey. And if you have something to share, Gustav would be very happy to hear from you.
And with that, I leave you to it. Join the movement …
The Modern Nomad
Do you ever get the feeling that your life as it is lived is boring, pointless or dead ended? Do you long to travel around the world in an Eco-challenging way? Do you want to know what it is like to pull up stakes, close up your home and set off on the adventure of a lifetime? Living simply while you travel, experiencing all that the world has to offer.
I’ve followed a number of bloggers that tired of living in the same place, doing the same things, and working at jobs that weren’t really fulfilling, so they pulled up stakes, traveled the world and found out what was their passions and also where they found their hearts and beings.
My One friend who writes at Travel Pash Love once called Sydney, Australia home, and he had a great job jet setting all over the world. But the routine got mundane and he longed for a change. So he shut his apartment, packed a couple of suitcases and spent a year traveling around the world looking for his next port of entry.
He found his life in South Africa, Cape Town to be exact. He met a man and fell in love and now they have a beautiful three bedroom home in Cape Town. His blog was turned into a book and he is doing what he loves doing, “Destination Australia.”
Gustav, our Swedish friend has traveled extensively around the world, going to places I could only dream about visiting myself. I have my life, and it’s happy. Gustav’s last address was in Buenos Aires. He has written extensively about his travels on his blog pictured above.
Now in New York, his next stop is California and the Burning Man festival. If you ever get the chance to go to Burning Man, you shouldn’t miss it. From what I have learned about it from Dan and others, it is quite the adventure.
Let’s show Gustav some love. Go read his blog and join the adventure.
If you’ve ever considered packing it all in and getting out of dodge, this is the way to do it.
I made my life change some 10 plus years ago leaving the U.S. for greener pastures here in Canada. And my piece of advice to you arm chair or sofa surfers is to put down your beers and chips and pack your bags and leave your comfort zone for a calendar year, it will change your life and the way you see the world.
Everyone should get the opportunity to travel some and see the world.
