Today’s guests are a Canadian couple who, after suffering multiple tragedies in their lives, sold it all to travel South America for 7 months. They left with no plan, no skills, and no solid travel experience. To get started, they went to volunteer, not expecting to inadvertently create a life of travel for themselves. Upon returning, they knew they couldn’t just sit still at home after having done the things they did.

Now, they’re perpetually on the road, living and working from their laptops – and enjoying their freedom in the real world. In this episode, we dive into what inspired their travels, and how they’re able to perpetuate them financially, and why they’re compelled to do so.
