We’re officially homeless—I mean, nomads!
I know we unplugged the internet modem, locked up the house, and dropped off the key with the property manager, but it still hasn’t hit me that we don’t live in the home in which we’ve been for four years.
Growing up in a military family, I’m no stranger to moving. I’ve moved plenty of times before. But this time is different.
It’s not like you just need to get used to the fact that there’s a new place to call home. It’s that there is no “home” to go back to!
I think it will be some weeks before it fully sinks in and I realize this isn’t just a trip from which we’ll soon return.
We don’t know where we’ll live after the sabbatical year. I feel an odd comfort not knowing. In the same sense, I feel an odd comfort not having a home. It represents pure possibility and freedom.
We’re free as a bird. Everything we need is in the pack on our backs. It feels… light—like we can go anywhere, because we can.
I’m excited to announce our official move out date: January 26th! I’m so happy to finally begin our sabbatical year of nomadic world travel, and hopefully get to hang out with you in person.
We won’t have a house or car, and we’ve sold a lot of our other possessions as well. Everything we’ll use for the next year will fit in a backpack.
While we have some specific places in mind we’d like to visit, we also want to connect with people. I’ll keep you posted on any meetups in a city near you.
But beyond meetups, a number of people have reached out to actually offer us a place to stay—which is incredible!
The only problem is, I’ve had a hard time keeping track of the various comments and messages from people offering us a place to stay in various cities. So I came up with a solution: Continue reading “We’re gonna be nomads! (Can we stay with you?)”
It’s time to say goodbye to my favorite room. We will move out of our house later this month and begin the 2020 sabbatical year of nomadic travel. No house, no car, just a backpack.
I wrote my first book in this room and recorded hundreds of podcasts and live streams here. There are a lot of good memories.
The studio is optimized for production. I can walk in and everything is ready for me to create. Whether I want to record a video, podcast, or write, everything is ready to go. I will miss that. Continue reading “Goodbye to the Studio”
