Seen While Traveling

One of the reasons I love a traveling lifestyle is that I happen upon wonderful moments like this. Maybe Brian Froud and Andy Goldsworthy had a baby and made this magical artist.

Tiny Traveling Houses in Nature

I thought I'd take a minute to show you guys this little guy taking a break from his travels in the Delaware River.

Everyone needs a cute little turtle on a humdrum Wednesday, right?

Keeping Warm

Having lived in many tiny dwellings in which electric heaters just don't cut the mustard, I thought that I'd bring up some methods of keeping warm while sleeping.

As someone who can sleep through hurricanes, but not when it is cold, my personal magic words are: FEETY PAJAMAS!!!! I have a pair with the face of the Grinch on the toes..

Funding Life On The Road.

While looking up how much I could make if I sold on of my kidneys, I came across this article about how to pay one's bills while taking to the open road. It is about a girl named Jami Krause who bicycles around the country with her balloon sculpture business, called Balloon Biker.

Having gone to a very expensive college, I am constantly stressed about having enough to get by whilst having adventures, and starting my small business. There are times when it becomes limiting, especially to a fight or flight type person like me, who's biggest personal priority is having the freedom to go where I please. It is difficult to find an occupation in which I can travel, as well as make enough money to pay all of my exorbitant school loans and insurance bills.

I'm constantly searching for success stories about people who can function while traveling the country, especially people who are able to do it with a job that isn't predominantly online. Jami's story is particularly inspiring, because it is creative, and I can apply it to my own starving artist experience.
