MBP #34 – How a Professional Hobo Works and Travels the World since 2006
When I started Bargaineering in 2005, the words “location independent lifestyle” had not yet been put together to mean what it does today. Lifestyle design and Tim Ferriss’ Four Hour Workweek had not yet been published (April 2007). The term digital nomad had no meaning.
In 2006, Nora Dunn sold all of her stuff, including her business, and decided that she was meant to do something else. She was meant to travel the world and would go about designing her life so that she could do so financially sustainably.
In this podcast, we talk about how she built up a freelance writing business while traveling the world (especially the struggles of working while traveling), plus a few incredible stories along the way like a 30 day train ride from Lisbon, Spain to Saigon, Vietnam (now known as Ho Chi Minh City).
Resources and links mentioned in this chat:
- Her site: The Professional Hobo – you must check out her About page
- Caretaker Gazette – for travel volunteer opportunities
- WWOOF – World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms
- Her three books: How to Get Free Accommodation Around the World, Tales of Trains: Where the Journey is the Destination and Unconventional Guide to Working on the Road (released November 18th)
