Hi, I’m Ryan.
I used to work as a software guy with my home base in Ontario, Canada. What I loved about my job was the frequent travel, but there were two big problems:
- I had to be away from Dina and
- After a few weeks on the road I’d have to come home
Most people solve these problems by cutting back on the travel, but I decided to go a different way: my wife and I packed up our life and set out as vagabonds, together. Now we never worry about “going home” because home is wherever we are.
Planning our departure from Canada we tried to be ready for every eventuality. What things would we bring? How should we pack? How much money would we need? In the end, none of those things mattered much… now that we’re out there I’ve found the only things we really needed were an open mind and a sense of humour. Everything else you can pick up on the way.
