One of the questions we hear most frequently is, “is it possible to be a digital nomad couple?” We say that not only is it possible but you can succeed admirably. All of these couples have been exploring the world together and working together for a long time. Check them out…
Amber & Eric “The Husband” Hoffman
Dina and Ryan hit the road back in 2009 and have never stopped since. They’ve been very “slowmad” in their approach which has allowed them to dive deeper into countries and cultures and provided richer experiences than some of the nomad couples traveling at a fast pace will have seen.
Woodrow and Scott Calafiore are anything but ordinary travellers. They’ve been on the digital nomad trail for nearly a decade now and their blog is one of the most influential nomad and travel blogs out there. They’re particularly well-known for their innovative approach to photography. They also have a software company.
Proving that you don’t have to be twenty to see the world and run your own business, Rick Griffin and Sandi McKenna are the middle aged pair who keep on trekking. Rick decided to strike out on the travel trip of a lifetime when he nearly died back in 2004 and he persuaded Sandi to join him. They now run a radio show and are famous for working with some of the biggest brands in the world.
Simon Fairbairn and Erin McNeaney, a digital nomad couple who sold everything to travel the world indefinitely.
Both travelled in 2008 for a year and soon returned home to the UK. However they found it difficult to get back into everyday life involving routine and repetitiveness. Having experienced the vastness of the world and all of the opportunity out there, they struggled to fit back into business as usual.
So they headed off again, but this time we left for good. Sold everything they owned, quit their jobs, rented out their house and headed out to play dice with destiny.
Dalene and Peter Heck are the husband wife team who make up Hecktic Travels. Their blog is one of the most professionally produced nomad blogs that we’ve ever seen. They jumped out of corporate life in 2007 and started living in “200 litres of backpack space” and haven’t looked back. They say, “We have no plans to slow down. This life is too good.”
This Australian couple, Stephen and Jess, are relatively new to digital nomad life and only started out in 2014 but that hasn’t stopped them from gaining a lot of favourable intention. Other nomads may travel sedately but they’re trying to pack in years of living wherever they go, even if they’re only there for a few days. We really liked their YouTube channel.
If you think it’s depressing that all digital nomad blogs seem to come from a certain type of Westerner, then you’ll love the change presented by the couple who run Different Doors. They, Revati and Charles Victor, are an Indian professional couple hailing from Mumbai. They want to talk about unique experiences rather than standard travel tales and we think they do an amazing job of it.
Dan and Casey say they’re “lovebirds, world travellers, and adventurers extraordinaire.” They see it as their mission to make adventurous travel more accessible to everyone. They take an unusual vantage point from their blog to achieve this. They look at both the luxury and ultra-budget experiences each place they visit has to offer and then provide commentary on what works best.
This is a fantastic blog from an American and British couple that have been tearing up the trail and seeing vast swathes of the world and running their own business. We really like the fact that they’ve integrated both their professional lives and their nomadic lifestyles in a single blog format rather than trying to keep the two separate.
There’s a lot you could learn from Chris and Heather Boothman.
