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.

Update: The Nomad and Her Bad Back

I feel like I’m “being boring” here in Palermo, and with the recent news that I’ve decided to opt out of being nomadic for a while, I just want to clarify what’s going on. Once again, after [...]

Death and Deluge in Sicily

It breaks my heart to read the news this morning. A family of nine were pulled out of their home by divers after a river burst its banks on the outskirts of Palermo, Sicily, an island of massive [...]

FLASHBACK: The Deluge in Zagreb

By Train to Croatia

On June 23rd, 2018, I travelled by train to Croatia, Belgrade to Zagreb. It’s about an 8-hour trip and crosses northern Serbia into Croatia, avoiding Bosnia, so there’s one [...]

Musings on Time, Space, and Stillness

A New Chapter: Nomad Anniversary

I owe you a couple stories about Nova Scotia, and you’ll get them. I have other stories of other places to tell too. But it’s been a frantic summer of friends, family, and couchsurfing. I’m a [...]

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.
