What’s to Come in 2019?

That’s a great question! I’m generally not one for doing a lot of advanced planning, but someone who read my 2018 Financial Review commented that it was just a retrospective and didn’t really talk about the future. Since 2019 is going to be a kind of crazy year, I thought it might be fun to […]

2018 Financial Year in Review – Annual Spend = $17,306.62

This year was an odd one. In general, I try to keep my monthly spending at an average of $1k. Up until September, I was right on track. Then I went to Africa. What was supposed to be a multi-month house sit turned into a multi-month road trip. I could have easily decided to just […]

San Cristobal de las Casas, Mexico (Video)

This is where I used to live in Mexico.  It is an absolutely fantastic city with great culture, nightlife, beauty, food, etc. As a Digital Nomad destination it can’t be beat.  It’s easily accessible from the USA, it’s cheap (I lived there on $600/month), the internet is solid, fast and prolific, the language barriers are […]

Vagabondette Becomes The Wandering Dev

Well, it’s official! I am no longer just a Vagabondette wandering aimlessly and living month-to-month on the whims of Google’s good mood and whatever barter or paid jobs I could scrounge up. I am now a fully-trained Website Developer employed by a great company that allows me to work remotely! This means I get to […]

7 FAQs About How I Feed Myself & My Travel Addiction

Between the article that Wade from Vagabond Journey did on me and my comments on various other articles/blog posts, I receive at least a dozen emails a month asking for details on how I support myself traveling.  This is on top of the same question I get from almost every traveler I meet (which is […]
