My partner Vanessa and I often refer to ourselves as “Global Nomads”. We pick a country and location that we are drawn to and then we go to live there for anywhere between three months and a year. We take the opportunity as long term travelers to really live like locals so that we can experience the local culture for as long as possible. We get our inspiration sometimes from travel magazines and blogs and sometimes by word of mouth.
Over the past couple of years we have lived, or spent significant time, in several different countries. After a year together on a small island in the Caribbean just off the coast of Panama, we spent six months in the southern states of the USA. We stopped over for a month in England and are now living and working for a year in China. Our next house sit is in the Alpine Mountains of Victoria, Australia, for a couple of glorious summer months.
