Nomad Life and Travel
Standin’ On The Corner in Winslow Arizona!

Blogging About Nomadic Life and Travel, Along with Some Other Cosmic Sh*t Revelations!

I live nomad life and travel as a modern day nomad, and am the published author of the popular book Wild Women on The Road, most recently published 600 Days as a Nomad, and my attempt at nomad humor, Top Ten Lists For Nomads: The (Mostly) Lighter Side of Nomadic Life.

Thanks for your arrival here! Come along with me on my nomad life!

For current travels and musings, check out the blog page!

My name is Mary Ellen Telesha, and I’m a modern day nomad. I live nomad life and travel full-time in a converted mini-van, which you can see here and here! This life has some crazy-assed ups and downs, (which I share here on my website) and I’m loving it more than ever.

This is a place to share my nomadic journey, along with some other random cosmic stuff. It’s pretty unstructured, and tends to be more more inspirational than practical — if you’re looking for practical guidance on the nomad life a great place to start is with Bob Well’s CheapRVLiving.

WHY WOULD SOMEONE GIVE UP THE COMFORT AND SHELTER OF TRADITIONAL STATIONARY HOUSING TO BECOME A NOMAD?

WHY DO PEOPLE CHOOSE THIS RADICAL AND SOMETIMES CRAZY DIFFICULT NOMAD LIFE?

For me, it boiled down to this:

A yearning to really LIVE my life, and not just exist.

I get to see places and have experiences that would never happen if most of my income went to pay rent and utilities, just to sit in one place the rest of my life.

Here are some other reasons modern day humans choose a nomadic life:

To exit a materialistic/consumerism lifestyle.

The experience of nomad life and travel lets us see more of the world.

Wanting to live closer to nature.

To escape an unfulfilling life.

To escape themselves.

To escape unhappiness or another undesirable emotional state.

Financial hardship.

To save money.

Health reasons, such as mold exposure/illness.

Feeling of control in an otherwise out of control world.

Empowerment.

Hiding from someone or something.

Wanting to live authentically.

Wanting to find a like-minded community.

To heal physically.

To heal emotional turmoil or trauma.

To live a more meaningful life.

Wanting to LIVE before we die.

A deep craving for more meaning in our lives.

FREEDOM.
