Why We Started This Website


We started this website because there were so many things that we wanted to say. Our first diary was paper and a pen.

We lost that within a year.

We wanted to document every trial and tribulation. They each helped us learn what we needed to avoid and the best ways to save money.

We began sharing on this website because we hoped someone would benefit from the mistakes we had made and the wonders we'd seen.

It's been 10 years now, so you could call us 'Nomads'. We learned how to live by finding great deals, and working as English teachers along the way.

We hope you can take something out of our travel experiences and find out those little details we were forced to learn.

Like how to get a Visa to Vietnam in the cheapest possible way and how to get from Cambodia to Vietnam without losing our shirts.

Why We Left the 9-5 Cubicle

We knew that if we stayed where we were, we would never see the things we always dreamed of seeing.

We felt that we needed change, for without it, we feared that stagnation would set in, age would creep up, and we would get stuck in the Rat Race

I remember how badly my hands were trembling when I booked that one-way ticket to Hong Kong on New Year's Day, 2008.

We can't take it back, but we have no regrets. What are riches?

To some they are a fat bank account and a nice care.

To us it was experience. It's all in here, whether you decide to take a 2 week holiday in Thailand, or decide to live there.

You can learn more about how I built this Website here.

Thank You for Your Visit

We try and make a yearly trip back to Canada. Once we get there, we try and spend as much time as we can with family, friends and the people we treasure most.

We are grateful to everyone who has taken any advice from us. We only promote products that we have used, and have never found better.

Good luck in 2020. I'm not sure of the future, but if you are in need of a home based business, get it here
