“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
– Oscar Wilde
We are nomadic explorers.
Not being location bound and living a life with fewer possessions is about freedom. Freedom to roam. Freedom from the pressure of social norms. Freedom from being owned by material things. This pursuit of freedom is ultimately about happiness and it is the result of a personal journey we like to call a life reboot. A re-evaluation of priorities and choices in life. Bottom line—we got one life to live and we want to make sure we live it well.
While we are nomads by choice, it is also by necessity until one of us immigrates. Quite a process. So before we choose to settle down somewhere we wanted to weigh our options and explore the world. We decided to combine our love of hiking with this urge to explore. So, in 2019 we set out on a really long walk across the whole world… from my home is Scandinavia to Scott’s home in the South Pacific. We travel slow, one step at a time. We live simply, carrying all we need in the packs on our backs. We are nomadic explorers, adventurers, long-distance hikers—by choice—and we love our life.
Hunter S. Thompson said it best:
“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, wow!”
