Nora is The Professional Hobo for years now and a huge inspiration for us when we first got started travelling full-time and trying to sustain our travels by working online. We recently (and finally!) had the chance to meet her in person when we were both in Toronto at the same time, so we sat down and asked her all about her digital nomad lifestyle. In this interview, she talks about 2 of the key things that make financially sustainable travel possible: reducing your expenses, and finding a way to earn money as you go. She also talks about the challenges and rewards of the lifestyle, including surviving 3 natural disasters, 3 tropical diseases, the theft of her passport, and much more.
Carole Lyne Robin is an impressive and inspiring woman and we love that she has designed her life around what is most important to her. She’s a freelance photographer who helped build her own tiny house so that she could afford to live where she wants (off-grid in the bush!) and spend more time with the people and projects she loves.
When she’s not taking photographs, she’s volunteering as a farm hand on a reindeer ranch, taking courses on how to tan hides in the traditional Cree way, spending quality time with her parents, friends, and extended family, crafting beautiful items, and connecting with the outdoors where she canoes, fishes, hunts, and hikes.
