Travelin’ ain’t always easy…

Life as digital nomads can sound glamorous and carefree, and to a certain extent, it really is.

Read on as we share our most embarrassing freak-out moment ever: Warning: Long-term travel may cause heart attacks…well, almost.

Becoming forgettable: How absence doesn’t always make the heart grow fonder – We are not ready to trade in this mindset-altering, life-affirming freedom that becoming nomads has given us…but we are increasingly shocked at just how forgettable this seems to have made us…This has recently become one of our top posts of all time.

For our three-year travel-versary, we shared some random travel stats, such as how many beaches we visited, how many pizzas we ate, how many housesits we did, how many photos we took and how much money we spent.

For our two-year travel anniversary we talk about how travel has become our lifestyle, plus we count our transport, countries and how many arguments we had with each other in the last 365 days!

For our first travel anniversary, we added up how many borders we crossed, how many beds we slept in, how many different modes of transport we used and voted for our top 5 places and top 5 food experiences.
