Living Differently was a term I came up with to pull together all the threads of a travelling, nomadic lifestyle. Living Differently blog posts cover alternate thinking about education, earning, posessions, social structure and life. We went from trying to create an alternative lifestyle to one day realising we'd already created it, and it was sustainable. Thoughts, experiences and ideas on Living Differently.

Travel With Kids. 10 Things Kids Hate About Travel

My kids are big now. Bigger than me. Young people with minds and opinions of their own. I think it’s time to ask them, honestly, what they hated about travel and travelling for 6 full years as a digital nomad family. There must be something, surely?

A Nomadic Family Lifestyle. What’s it Really Like?

We left home over 5 years ago to travel the world and we never wanted to go back. Becoming a modern day nomadic family, a digital nomad family if you like, and adopting the lifestyle worked well for us. We visited around 50 countries, several of those 4 or 5 times. We’ve been to 5 continents …
