FleetingLife is a conscious lifestyle site for travelers, digital nomads & anyone who lives outside the lines.
We aim to inspire and educate fellow non-conventional thinkers to make remote working and travel truly attainable.
Living life on your own terms can be extremely rewarding, yet much more challenging than many will have you believe.
“Living the dream,” aka traveling and working online, isn’t nearly as glamorous as it seems.
Sometimes it’s sunny and exhilarating – full of laughs, new friends and amazing food. Other times it’s lonely as hell, anxiety-provoking, and even downright terrifying.
As a semi-digital nomad since 2013, I am all too familiar with how completely un-fabulous this lifestyle can be. I’ll never sugar coat reality for you – there are plenty of glossy magazines for that.
I also staunchly believe that adversity, obstacles and failure are the greatest stepping stones to greatness. Not playing it safe and even royally screwing up can be the biggest catalysts for self actualization and empowerment.
This is why I’m such a supporter of a non-traditional lifestyle.
It’s why I love to encourage people to think outside of the box, to challenge the status quo, to dig deeper to find the “why” behind everything they do.
This is why I challenge you to push yourself out of your comfort zone – there’s growth to be had there.
I challenge you to stop creating useless “bucket lists” and to start taking real actions to change your life.
If you’re here, chances are you’re a bit of an oddball / weirdo / non-conformist too.
We tend to be the deep thinkers of the world, the trailblazers, the people who relentlessly question everything.
We’re often the people who have experienced immense challenges and even darkness in life (and in ourselves) that others have yet to face.
These experiences have shaken us to the core, maybe even broken us for some time, but they have also enlightened us to what is truly important in life.
We’re well-versed in the art of appreciating the little things that most take for granted, because we’ve hit rock bottom and lived to tell the tale.
Tragic death, illness, abuse, loss or failure may have temporarily undermined our optimism, but it also what has taught us how to be modern warriors of the light.
Picking up the pieces after a tragic life event always involves intense soul-searching and self-discovery.
In my opinion, the most empowering form of self-discovery is taking full control of your life by learning to make a living online, and if possible, through travel.
In 2017, learning to make a living online is easier and more accesible than ever. No formal education is needed, just hunger, curiosity and a decent internet connection.
Travel is a privilege and a luxury, but it is also cheaper today than ever, so my hope for you is that once you start working online (either as a side-gig or full-time), you may be able to incorporate some form of travel into your life.
Perhaps long-term digital nomadism won’t be for you (I know it’s not my cup of tea), but even briefly immersing yourself in a new culture can be enough to give you a complete perspective overhaul.
I originally started FleetingLife as a simple travel blog…
…(with very little idea of what I was doing) in 2012 while I was bored at my corporate day job.
When I was hit by a car and spent 5 months in bed recovering, I kicked it up a notch. I started blogging more seriously after moving to Spain, and even more so once I tried my hand at digital nomading.
Over time this site has grown into much more than a typical travel blog, and will likely continue to change as I do. The overarching mission, however, hasn’t changed:
FleetingLife exists to inspire and teach you how to live the absolute best life that you’re capable of.
