Hi fellow nomads, this is Luis from Mexico, I started the nomadic lifestyle 10 months ago when I started traveling and working remotely for a company from the US, I used to live there (Seattle) and started traveling through South America. Once there I decided to start my food documentary project, making videos of the local dishes and people behind it; it’s called Nomad Cook. (nomadcook(.)org)
I’m not planning to stop traveling soon, I’ll only stop to touch base in Mexico to see my family for couple of months but I’ll be working on the project while there. Mexico has plenty of diverse food options to offer.
After that I’ll wether stay traveling through Mexico or go to SEA, but for now; I’m currently in Peru and heading next to Ecuador, then Colombia, Panamá, Costa Rica and Guatemala. I’m living now through the culture of minimalism, sharing and community.
At this point, I decided to quit my job and be a full time nomad, I’m still living out of savings and will take a freelance gig if necessary, but my main focus right now is this project I’m working on now. I choose the .org domain because I would like to create an organization to help creating sense of community and help with poverty issues and tech integration. I know it sounds ambitious but I’ve been collaborating with some local non-profits and organizations that inspired me to give that twist to my project.
I’m still working on creating an audience in order to connect with other fellow travelers, volunteers, projects and inspiration. I’ve been also volunteering for other small projects helping them with professional photography and video creation since they couldn’t afford to pay for this services from a local professional.
Lots of hard work to do. If you find this project interesting or inspiring, or at least worth it, please share and subscribe to my channels on instagram and youtube, which are the main ones I’m putting most of my effort at. You can find them in the blog quoted above.
Also, if you have any advice, would definitely heard. I’m learning to do all this (video editing, researching, publishing, marketing (online and traditional), traveling, volunteering and whatnot.
Thanks for reading and if you’re in South America in the next months, we might run into each other.
