The last two years have been…nothing like the three that preceded them. But we’ve done our best to find the silver linings, and are so grateful that we’ve stayed healthy and still managed to find some adventures.
We’ve (somehow!) been traveling full-time and living as digital nomads for three full years now. From diving with sea turtles in Indonesia to having an unexpected surgery in Thailand, this recap covers all our highs and lows of the past year.
It’s hard to believe, but we’ve been traveling for two whole years! In honor of this milestone, we’re looking back at where we’ve been in the past twelve months and reflecting on the highest highs and lowest lows.
For long-term travelers in Asia, visiting a capital city means not only seeing some sights, but also taking advantage of some scarce amenities. Ryan did both during his weekend in Phnom Penh (and even found great Mexican food in Cambodia!).

We’ve officially been on the road for a whole year! Today, we’re looking back on the highs and lows of the past twelve months, including our most exciting adventures and the biggest challenges of working while traveling.
Free accommodations in a nice house and cool pets to play with while you travel? Yes, please! Housesitting has been a big part of our journey in Southeast Asia, and become much more than a way to save money.
When we left the U.S. to adopt a nomadic lifestyle, people asked us about how we’d deal with the mundane things that are second-nature at home – and one of them was laundry. Here are all the laundry options we’ve found on the road, plus our best tips for washing your clothes while you travel.
After our first three months of traveling in Southeast Asia and working from the road, we’re looking back on our experiences so far. Our travels have taken us to Thailand, Cambodia, and Malaysia, with highlights like housesitting, a yoga retreat, and a little-visited Thai island.
We finally took the leap and left our jobs, apartment, and life in the U.S. to travel abroad and work as freelancers. Here’s the story of why we made this lifestyle change and how we’re starting our new lives as digital nomads in Thailand.
