My Journey To Nomadic Freedom

I am Aaron, and for me; travel is the ultimate freedom. It is an escape from the known to the unknown. Travel is addictive and emotional. It is messy like a normal life, but exciting like there is no limit. While I took many quick trips around the USA as a kid and young adult, it took me 38 years of life to travel internationally. Why did it take so long? What was stopping me?

I took the typical path of getting college degrees, working my way up the ranks of the corporate world, and feeling unhappy. Work was not fulfilling me, and it was making me sick. I yearned for something more meaningful and something that made me happy. So at 38, I took my very first trip out of the country to Japan. While that was one of the greatest culture shocks I had ever had, it was the most incredible start to my travel journey. This is where I caught the travel bug that inspired the world trip, and the rest is history. I am free!

What Travel Means to Me

For me, travel is more than climbing mountains and seeing monuments; it is about people. Sure, those other things are amazing too, but the human connection is the most inspiring. There is so much generosity and kindness around the world that no one sees. All they see on the news is terrible.

I’ve made so many friends abroad and they not only inspired me, but I inspired them. They kept asking me questions about how I could travel for so long. Two of them were so blown away that they wanted to join us later in our trip. Some never dreamed that you could make it a long-term thing. Neither did I, originally.

Looking back at my younger self, I imagined I would need to make a million dollars so I could travel the world. That is not true. I met someone who traveled with next to nothing. He had mostly free lodging through Couchsurfing, and he provided massage therapy to earn enough money to buy food and transportation. If he could do it, what was stopping me? Had I known this when I was 25 instead of 38, my life would be so much different.

Why I’m Passionate About Helping Others

After seeing so many people who wonder how they could travel themselves, I am inspired to share everything I know so you can do the same. Many people get near the end of their life and wonder what happened to it all. What did they work all those years for? Possessions? A big house? That occasional two-week vacation? Life only happens once, and not everyone wants to spend it behind a computer screen. While travel isn’t for everyone, I know plenty who do want to do this. I knew I did not want to wait until I was 70 to see the world. The world is an amazing place. Why wait? There is no better time than now, as long as there is no pandemic, that is.

The Unlimited Travelers Club – The Pathway to Nomadic Freedom

We want to share our expertise in a focused forum dedicated to your progress so you can actually ACHIEVE this new lifestyle and not just dream about it.  The Club is for you if:

  • You’re tired of the daily routine: get up early, commute, slave away at a desk all day, come home through rush hour traffic, toss something together for dinner, zone out in front of an hour or two of Netflix, then crash to do it all over again the next day
  • You love traveling, but you hate to be boxed in by two weeks of PTO… if your boss even lets you take it all at once
  • You want to go beyond the tourist traps and actually have experiences with the local culture and people
  • You are ready to finally make living out in the world a priority – while you’re still young enough to enjoy it

We want to help you through this journey together. You can read all the details of the program here. If I had access to something like this five years ago, I could have been living my travel dream much sooner instead of counting the days to my next two-week vacation. I am very passionate about making this a possibility for you because I love to travel so much and want to make it possible for others too. I look forward to seeing you there.

Final Thoughts

My journey to nomadic freedom was longer than it needed to be. There were so many obstacles in my head that were unfounded. I had to change my programming from climbing the corporate ladder to climbing mountains. There is so much more to life than making more money and buying more things. Travel has made me more compassionate towards others, given me hope in the human race, taught me more about myself than I ever knew, and fostered new friendships all over the world. It is the ultimate freedom and I want to share it with you.
