Nomad life and adventures

Welcome to a travel site of a Finnish nomad couple, that has been traveling the world full time since 2017. With our travel stories we want to inspire people to travel with open mind, and to see the wonderful world also out of the beaten path. In addition to destination guides, we write about the financial side of digital nomad life and share our travel expenses to prove that traveling the world can be done with low budget. We work location independently, and when not working, enjoy hitting the hiking trails and running, as well as tasting local wines and craft beers. We have traveled in 71 countries so far, out of which 58 already before the full-time nomad life. Currently we are on  road trip in Europe.

Dive in and find next destinations for your travels, maybe even inspiration to make a longer trip around the world, or to start your journey as a digital nomad some day!

DESTINATION OF THE MONTH: ALBANIA

Albania is one of the rising travel destinations in eastern Europe. This Balkan country borders with Greece in the south, Montenegro and Kosovo in the north, Macedonia in the east and the Mediterranean Sea in the west. Albania has a long coastline with beautiful beaches especially in the so called Albanian Riviera area. It’s also a country of several mountain ranges, highest peak being Mount Korab (2 764 m). Albania is a great destination for budget travelers, as the general price level is still very affordable.
