In this episode, Craig catches up with Nora Dunn from the Professional Hobo. As well as finding out what she’s been up to recently, they talk about what started her off on her eight-year journey and about her recent book: Working on the Road: The Unconventional Guide to Full-Time Freedom.
Like us, Nora started travelling back in 2006, but unlike us she sold off a house, car, and business to do so. She says a little niggling voice at the back of her head just kept telling her that she wasn’t doing the right thing with her life, and in 2006 she realised that travel was that right thing. So she sold up (an emotional and logistical challenge) and set off, starting the Professional Hobo to document her journey.
Working on the Road: The Unconventional Guide to Full-Time Freedom, published by the excellent Chris Guillebeau aims to give readers an idea of what it’s like to work on the road and equip them to do it themselves.Unlike other books, which focus on a “digital nomad” lifestyle, this book contains case studies of a wide range of job options, including telecommuting, teaching, and doing freelance work online. It also makes sure to give you a good idea of the challenges you might face while taking on one of these jobs — very important.
In this episode, we also talk about our experience of Easter in Spain and treat you to a couple of sound clips from the Easter processions.
