And then there is the most dangerous risk of all – the risk of spending your life not doing what you want, on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.

James and Donetta Dalman. Digital Nomad Couple.

Years ago we decided life was too short to settle for the status quo. We wanted to travel the world and live on our own terms. And our desire to experience new places, cultures, and delicious beers from all over the world was stronger than our fear of leaping into the unknown.

On July 14, 2020, we finally experienced the total freedom we longed for. We sold our house and belongings, packed what we needed in our pickup truck, and headed out for the adventure of a lifetime. No pandemic was going to keep us from living the dream!

Now we're a digital nomad couple working from anywhere with WiFi and living in hotels as we travel. 

We search out amazing hotels and write about the experiences. We share advice and insights on how to travel full-time while building an online business. And we spend WAY more time outdoors walking the beach or hiking in the mountains.

Every day is a new epic adventure waiting to unfold. There are no regrets and no plans to stop. Life is good.
