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.

Uplifting Notes From the Dark Side

History seems like abstraction, a story we’re told between commercials. Or at least that’s how it seems, growing up in North America. By which I mean “north-North America.” Mexico has some [...]

Why I Always Travel with a Cellphone

TELUS asked me if I’d consider writing about my experiences abroad with cell phones. I said sure! So, this post was sponsored by TELUS, but the opinions and experiences are mine.  Returning [...]

Comes Out in the Wash: Flashbacks

The laundry is done. In 48 hours, I’ll be on a plane, waiting for lift-off, en route to my final European landing – London. Then, a couple nights with friends, a trip up to Edinburgh and [...]

On Leaving Our Soul Behind

The year was 1999. My mother died in the dog days of summer. The weight coming down was crushing. That grief is so hard to explain unless you’ve been in it. We didn’t have a perfect relationship. [...]

Update: The Nomad and Her Bad Back

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.
