Hi I'm Susan

I have been an emergency room nurse for 14 years. I love being a nurse, but I’ve realized that I need to take care of myself before I can take care of others.

I spent the summer of 2019 in Indonesia, teaching English. It was the break from nursing that I needed. It made me realize that I wanted to do anything in my power to travel more and work less.

I love to travel. I love to explore new places and experience new cultures. The more I travel, the more I realize how vast and unique this world is. I know that life for me is more than getting married, having 2.5 kids, and working the same job for 40 years until I can collect retirement.

This website is a chance for me to share my personal journey and travel tips with aspiring nomads around the world.
