Yo! Hannah and Taran here!
Are you a bit like us; obsessed with leading a simpler life, with less stuff, more travel and a s*** ton of fulfilment?
Maybe you're considering quitting your 9-5, clearing your debts, selling all your crap, and starting all over again?
We actually did just that. We changed our spending habits, let go our of material possessions, cleared our debts, left behind our jobs, and then embarked on a new journey as working travellers.
For over two years now we have shared our transformative path via our travel chronicles and advice on a myriad of topics.
- Getting debt-free.
- Creating a simplified and minimalist life.
- Considering a new way of life away from the 9to5.
- Embarking on an adventure of a lifetime.
Nomad'er How Far Begins
In 2014, to motivate us to reach our savings goals and fulfil our travelling aspirations, we set-up a blog, purely as a space to document this momentous time in our lives.
Our first website was with Wix, and it was really, really bad. We knew very little about the scope of blogging, but we had passion and bundles of enthusiasm, which we didn't yet know how to translate into creating a great online space, beneficial to not only us, but to others out there wanting to lead a more fulfilling life.
But not long after we started the first site, we gradually researched and learned from others and knew that we had to up our game. So we moved to Squarespace and focused a lot of time on building the blog to where it is today; a space for people seeking actionable inspiration that will change their life.
Hannah has always loved writing, and was never that great at anything else; numbers, science, sport, all the things her peers excelled in, she bulked away from, preferring a blank word document or a notebook. She wanted to be a blogger before she even truly knew what that meant.
Taran meanwhile spent his youth behind a camera, filming short films and funny skits with his friends, which grew into the awesome videography and photography he now creates to document our travels.
Through Nomad'er How Far, we get to pursue both our passions in our own online space and help others in the process.
We lead a minimalist lifestyle so we chat about that A LOT. Hannah even wrote a self-help book all about it; her very first book, a practical guide to embracing minimalist principles. We also like to share financial advice on how we were able to leave home debt-free and how we now sustain our travels. We also love sharing the stories of other travellers via guest posts and embrace the inspiration abundant across the blogging world.
A little peek at what we get up to:
So who the hell are we?
Hey! I like to do most of the talking (or writing) here at Nomad'er How Far.
3 things: a good book, a cool breeze, and the beach. If these are at the centre of my life I know I am doing it right.
Coming from a background in Media, graduating with a BA from the University of Portsmouth in 2012, I always thought Journalism was for me, but it became clear during my studies that it wasn't quite what I had dreamt it was aged 11 when I wrote as a hobby.
Joining the competitive world of media wasn't to be. Instead I began a small business doing dog-walking and pet-sitting which I loved. Working outside in all English weathers was exhilarating if not dirty, cold and wet...Its definitely prepared me for a life of more hiking and exploring (followed by refreshing dips in the sea and cider, which I insist upon). Now the focus has shifted from playing with puppies, to having the world trip of a lifetime.
I've always been a bit of a wanderer; if I see a big hill I have to climb it!
I love adventure and seeing new places, wildlife and cultures in our journeys. I have a big passion for art and drawing, which I combine with my love of space and the Universe. Before starting to travel I used spray cans to create my own space-art like the surfboard in my pic!
I'm also big into music and love sharing my music taste with new people around the world! One of the main things I enjoy about travelling is leaving most of the technology behind and living a bit simpler, with people who don't have a smart phone in front of their face 24/7.
