It’s now been 500 days since I first got on a plane and became a digital nomad.
In that time I’ve learned a lot about myself, about different cultures and about what truly motivates me in life.
I’m back home for Xmas and my birthday at the moment but I could not be more excited for what lies ahead in 2019.
The tough part is leaving your family and friends behind each time, but in a way, they are always in my backpack.
I see the world through the lens of which friend would enjoy this park, which one I would go drinking with at this bar, and how much my parents would enjoy a city I’m in.
Over the last 500 days, I’ve added new people from around the globe to this backpack and day by day the world feels more and more connected.
Becoming a digital nomad has given me a new sense of direction and a new lease of life; just at the point when I thought it was going to start winding down.
And for the next 500 days? I’m planning to embrace what the world has in store for me, and continue to find out what I’m really capable of.
