Ever since I read Vagabonding: An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel by Rolf Potts, I can’t stop entertaining the idea of selling everything we own and traveling non-stop for years.
Simon Fairbairn and Erin McNeaney of the travel blog, Never Ending Voyage, are a couple that did that very thing. They’ve been traveling for 5 years, working from their laptops as ‘digital nomads’. Even if you’re not planning on selling everything to skip off to earth, their blog posts are inspiring!
My favorite post so far is: How to travel long term with only carry-on luggage
Even for short trips, dragging around typically-sized luggage is a huge pain for me, including waiting around the luggage claim belt for what seems like an hour. I probably wouldn’t hate plane travel as much if I could just pack light!
Simon and Erin’s ability to travel with bare essentials is inspiring to me and I think I’ll take it as my next personal challenge to only take a backpack on our next trip. Check out their blog, Never Ending Voyage, for tons of tips on long-term travel.
