It’s Day 23 of the 30 Day Blog Challenge (already?) and today’s topic is on location independence:
What’s your level of location independence and your nomadic quotient?
To be honest, I can be a real home body. As much as I love adventure, spending a few weeks across seas or taking a road trip a few times a month, I like the word “home”. For me location independence means having the ability to travel anywhere without monetary restraints.
A home base will always be an option in my life because I love the feeling of coming home. However home can get old, boring, repetitive and redundant. I can always tell when my traveling feet get antsy and it’s time to hit the road, whether for a 3 day weekend or 2 week trip starting with a 20 hour plane ride.
What are the key qualities and characteristics which will help a frequent traveler?
Since we are all different it depend. For me I know that:
- I’m an extrovert and find it easy to make new friends. Initially the thought of traveling alone is not exciting but forces me out of comfort zone.
- I’m a minimalist and packing light is generally easy except when it comes to shoes…I don’t know what it is about women and shoes but that they say is all true
- I’m a storyteller by natural and tend to seek out adventure. It always makes for a great story – have your heard the water tower story?
I think that normal is boring and meeting people with unique stories and a completely different perspective on life opens my eyes and expands my knowledge. I like to surround myself with strong personalities, deep thinkers and people with a strong desire to live their best life. Why settle for less when you could have it all?
