In 2013, I gave up my home, sold most of my belongings and embraced a nomadic life. I speak about my unique life and travel philosophy at corporate events, travel meetups, conferences and workshops, on topics ranging from what it’s like to travel solo to responsible and vegan travel to making a living from a passion like blogging. My aim is to inspire and entertain with stories from the road, and encourage the audience to think different.
