Thanks to the influence of social media sites like Instagram, the life of a digital nomad seems glamorous and alluring. The images are often over sexualized and misleading (my friend RV Chickadee recently wrote a pretty funny – and accurate – blog about this).
The truth is that a digital nomad has to work for a living. Usually, pretty dang hard. And just like anyone else in any other job, we can get burnt out. When you live your passion full time, it’s easy to lose perspective and lose that passion. We have to take active steps to stay creative, and stay happy.
Join us for a quick vacation through 10 of Kentucky’s distilleries! This time, we set out for a few of the smaller craft distilleries that are newer or “off the beaten path”… of course with a few classics mixed in there as well.
You’ve seen them in the news, on the internet, and maybe even on the road. You’ve read about the freedom, the simplicity, and the happiness they can bring. And now you’re ready to start your own “tiny journey”.
But simplifying your life and finding the perfect home is no tiny task! There are an overwhelming number of options when it comes to finding the right tiny house for you. From legal requirements to simple aesthetics – where do you start!?
To share with you the possibilities and adventures that await down the road less traveled, I made a video to showcase some of the roads I am grateful to get Rocky down. Please enjoy this 3-minute expedition with me!
And now for the stunning conclusion in the 3rd and final installment of my Grand Canyon trilogy! (I’m sure you’ve all figured out by now that I survived, right?)
Now for Part 2! We covered a lot of miles in this episode. In addition to the beautiful scenery, I tried to include some practical backpacking tips of day to day hiking. Thanks to the wonderful invention of video editing I’m able to keep the video moving pretty quickly – so if you want more details on any of the items I mention, just keep reading and I’ll include links!
One thing Kendrick and I always try to do is get away from the crowds. While only 1% of the visitor’s to the Grand Canyon actually make it to the bottom, we wanted to be the 1% of the 1% that took a different path! The two most popular trails to the bottom are the South Kaibab and the Bright Angel trails.
Folks seemed to enjoy my video 23 Quick Ideas for your T@G or T@B. It was a great way to get a slew of ideas from a lot of different creative people. So when I recently attended another gathering, T@bazona, I took the opportunity to gather some more great ideas!
With the growing age of social media and increasing accessibility of quality cameras, it’s becoming more common for photographers to share their work. I could let this upset me. I could see this as an over saturation of competition, and a devaluing of my skillset. But I don’t. I choose to view this new age as an opportunity for me to share as well – to reach people I otherwise would not be able to.
At the end of the day, at the end of the year, and even at the end of our lives, the moments we will be remembering fondly will be the best ones. The very best bits. And so 3 years ago I began a collection of videos I call my “Best Bits” series.
