NOMAD

An on going project about the unique lives of backpackers and nomads who traverse the far reaches of this world.


“I feel like real life is here.
Coming to a foreign country where I don’t know the language, I don’t know how to read the language. Everything is foreign to me. So, what do I know? Only what I pick up from my experiences. Nothing from the past. Nothing about the rules. The only thing I know is what I create for myself or what experiences give me. Which is this — all the hippies, being free, being naked. For me it’s pure freedom. It’s real life.”

“Most people stay in their secure bubble. They say, "Oh I might lose my job” or something like that. No, you can always find another job. 
It’s really possible.

You can always make space for something else.

If the glass of water is full you can not put something new inside. You have to pour out the water first to refill it with something new. To make space you have to quit some old patterns, jobs, or relationships - anything that makes you feel stuck. Once you make space, you are free and even more beautiful things can come.”

“It totally changed my life in so many ways. Before I started traveling on my own it was strange for me to eat alone in a restaurant. I remember the feeling in New Zealand exploring, being by myself, and starting to enjoy spending time with myself. It is so empowering and wonderful to totally connect with yourself and enjoy every moment of it. I cannot imagine a day without having my own space for meditation, yoga practice, and a tea or coconut.”

“You must know yourself; you must know your mind to be in a place with so many people.”

Otto, a painter and coffee shop owner in Koh Pha-ngan, Thailand. Describing his experiences in India.


“There's something so deep about the people you encounter and connect with when you travel. You may only know them for a brief time but you can become closer with them than friends you've had for years. It's people who understand that there's more - humans are meant for more than slaving away doing a 9 to 5. We are all so beautifully unique and magical, and it's something really easy to forget when you're back in the matrix. It's beautiful to be able to see the magic in others and have them remind you of yours.”
