Nora Dunn sold everything she owned in Canada (including a busy financial planning practice) in 2006 to embrace her life-long dreams of long-term immersive world travel. She has been on the road ever since, living in and traveling through over 55 countries.
Nora calls herself The Professional Hobo, and she’s been a digital nomad since before we had that phrase to describe it. Today, she teaches people how to travel full-time in a financially sustainable way.
You can find Nora on social media.
In this interview, Nora and I discuss what it means to be a digital nomad vs. location independent, what it’s like to travel full time, how to save a ton of money on accommodations, and much more. Enjoy!
