My name is Sarah, and I’m from Vancouver, Canada.
I’ve only gone full digital nomad/vagabond a few days ago, but have been working remotely/had the ability to be a digital nomad for the past year and a half. One thing that was keeping me at my home base was my house and husband, but my husband and I decided to split up a few months ago (our lifestyles were just far too different) and we just sold the house. So, last week I packed my belongings in my car, parked it at my dad’s, and took off for… whatever I’m doing now (which at the moment is travelling Europe).
I travelled a lot before (6 weeks in Europe, booked a 3 month trip to South America) but always felt guilty for not being at home with my husband, so now that I am “free”, it will be likely a lot more.
I run marketing at SumoMe.com, and also run my own business, Unsettle.org. With SumoMe, I’m sort of back and forth in Austin (though not as much as I’d like to be) with the hopes of immigrating there in the fall (maybe! depending on whether I’m able to).
I’m currently in Paris, but will be flying out to Santorini on Tuesday, and from there… ?? Who knows.
Since deciding to not have a home base (or rather, to be a vagabond) one of the biggest challenges I’ve had and things I’ve learned is how difficult it is to date! Dating is fun (especially after you’ve been in a relationship for a looong time) but there’s no point in dating non-nomads… it just gets too sad when you (inevitably) part ways.
So that’s me! If you’re in Greece over the next few weeks (or Cyprus, or Croatia, or South America) let’s go for coffee, or explore the city. @petersonsar.
