Living the Digital Nomad Lifestyle

Could you be location independent?

Imagine being able to travel around the world for as long as you want. Picture yourself living in different countries and seeing amazing sights from the Taj Mahal to Machu Picchu to the Mediterranean Sea and everywhere in between. What would it be like to have the freedom to travel and move anywhere you please?

Where would you go… if you could go anywhere?

The world of work is changing quickly and the digital nomad lifestyle is becoming a reality for many. A digital nomad is someone who uses technology to work remotely so that they don’t have to be based in one location. They could be a freelance web designer, a writer, a blogger, a social media consultant or any other online based profession. As long as a digital nomad can work from a computer in their living room, they can also work from a cafe in Paris, a hostel in Bangkok or an apartment in Mexico. When work becomes location independent – the possibilities become limitless.

Is This Lifestyle Actually Possible?

You might be wondering whether this is just a lucky dream that happens for the rare few, or whether this lifestyle is possible for you. The truth is that the digital nomad lifestyle is more practical and achievable than you think. You will need to put the hard work into setting it up, then you will be able to reap the rewards of being able to work from anywhere.

Fortunately, there are a lot of helpful resources available online that will help you to learn about becoming a digital nomad.

Live For Something, or Die For Nothing

liveforsomething

 

So, ever ask someone how their day was or simply what’s going on? And you get the typical answer “same shit, different day”? Or better yet, “nothing much just work”. Really!? Is this what life’s become? We just wake up like robots, get dressed, throw breakfast down our throats and work all day just to do it all over again the next day? As you can see this is a hot topic of mine, and even one I’m still working on.

We can keep going on and on about that subject but that’s not what this blog post is all about. Although, it is intended to get you to think about these things and not just fall into life’s routine.

So I came up with a list of 15 things to live for, at least some of the things that I do:

1. A good solid brunch
2. Massage on the beach
3. The beach
4. Naps inside of hammocks
5. Eating your favorite dessert
6. Great sex!
7. Listening to your favorite music or songs
8. The after workout feeling
9. Traveling to foreign lands
10. Your favorite foods
11. Laying in the park cloud watching
12. Cool breezes on hot nights
13. Meeting great people
14. Coffee in the morning
15. The love of your family

The list can go on and on but these are just a few.

So what are some of the things you live for?

Man Almost Falls 950ft During Record Breaking Wire Walk

HellaLife-rope-walk-WEB2

 

Wanna talk about living a HellaLife? Shit! Spencer SeaBrooke sure fuckin does!! Shortly into his world breaking wire walk he slipped and almost fell to his death.  Ultimately, he was able to catch himself and finish this crazy journey across.

 

Without a doubt, it’s the fear of falling that keeps you alive. There’s no lines at all, so if I hadn’t caught the line in those moments, I would’ve been mashed potatoes after a seven-second free fall.”

We don’t advice this too anyone in case we had to mention that.  Seabrooke likes to add the even more danger by not wearing a safety rope. He’s completely out of his mind if you ask us, but with that being we give him respect for doing what he loves.  Living a HellaLife can be different for everyone, and this dude is certainly living that life!

All This Nike Metcon vs Reebok Nano Talk!

IMG_7583

 

Ok, we’re certain by now that you’ve seen all the Nike Metcon vs Reebok Nano banter all over the internet lately. Especially with that ballsy stunt Nike did a few weeks ago at the Reebok CrossFit Games.  Pulling up with a couple of billboard trucks with some of the latest Metcon 1’s, pretty funny if you ask me. But ballsy for sure!

nike at the crossfitgames

 

 

And then of course after the completion of the CrossFit Games, Reebok along with the likes of Rich Froning posted this photo:

nike metcon vs reebok nano

 

So heres my take on this silly feud that’s brewing. First, for those that don’t know Reebok and CrossFit signed a ten year deal which they are only five years into. It’s the REEBOK CrossFit Games, NOT Nike so wouldn’t you expect that all the athletes will be given gear? Not really much different than any other professional sports organization. It’s business!

So let’s talk about the important stuff, the shoes. To be quite honest other than the original Reebok Pump’s as a kid I don’t really remember a time that I purchased a pair of Reebok sneakers. So let’s be real CrossFit saved Reebok as a brand.  But back to the shoes, the Nano’s have proven to be a great shoe over the years.  I’ve been wearing them pretty much since the beginning. I do have to say they took time getting use too, and I’m still not sure if I’m use to them quite yet. The wide toe box takes some getting use too. With that being said they are durable as fuck!  On the style side, well that’s where Nike just kills them.  I wish they would remove all those graphics and concentrate more on style and colors.

As for Nike now starting to market to CrossFit athletes well what did you think was gonna happen?  But unless you live under a rock, Nike has been making shoes for fitness for years now.  And just because they haven’t labeled one a “CrossFit” shoe doesn’t mean they are jumping on the bandwagon.  As for the Metcon’s the test is yet to be seen, but from a styling standpoint they most certainly win in my book.

As for all the back and forth on which is better, pretty funny reading grown men go toe to toe about sneakers.  Reminds me of the good old days of being a kid. But let’s be real, yes you need to be comfortable in your shoe but neither of these will make you better at CrossFit or any fitter than yesterday.  Both are good, wear what you like!

Busta Rhymes Throws Protein Shake at Someone, Gets Arrested

Busta Rhymes is currently in a bit of legal trouble, following his arrest in New York City last night after he reportedly threw his container of protein drink at someone in his gym. According to TMZ, Busta and the other man were engaged in some sort of argument at the gym when Busta threw the container, which struck the man, thought it’s unclear if it caused any injuries.

Following the incident, Busta was arrested on second degree assault and taken into jail, where he was later released on his own accord. Busta posted about the incident on his Instagram this morning, with the caption reading, “Thanks to everyone who helped expedite this evening for me. I’m good and we’re back to the grind. Heading 2 the studio 2 turn the bullshit into GREATNESS. I’m super good.” We’ll continue to update the story as more details are released.

We’ve always been big fans of Busta Bust and surprised to hear he got into an altercation but hey, now you know not to ever mess with the man while he’s working out! Busta certainly lives that HELLALIFE!

Becoming a Vagabond and Travelling the World

professional-travel-blogging-tips

“Travelling the world really sucks. I wish I had stayed at home in my 9-5 job and never had this experience.”

Said no one ever.

In all my travels around the world I’ve never meet anyone who has regretted taking the leap and following their dreams to see the world. Unfortunately, I’ve met a lot of people who didn’t take the chance to travel and wished they had.

Of course, there are many obstacles to overcome before you go travelling – including saving money, planning the trip and having the guts to live the life you want rather than the life that is expected of you by society or by others. But for most people these obstacles are surmountable and the reward at the end – the thrill of seeing fascinating foreign corners of the world – is absolutely worth it.

How to Quit Your Job and Travel the Globe

If your goal is to take off and travel as far as possible and for as long as possible, here are some things to keep in mind:

You’ll need a safety net of savings before you go. Start hustling at a side job or selling the things you don’t need so that you can build up your emergency fund. If it all goes wrong you want to have at least enough for a flight home so that you don’t end up stranded in a foreign land.

Choose your destination. What region of the world do you want to explore? Do research into where you are going to find out about how much it costs, what the local customs are, what type of accommodations you can expect and anything else you might need to know.

Get the right gear. A good quality backpack is essential, one that can withstand being strapped to the top of a bus heading down bumpy dirt roads in Guatemala and thrown into the back of a wooden boat in Thailand. Reduce your belongings to the bare essentials so that you can travel as lightly as possible.

Think about how you will fund your travels. If you are only going for a few months you can subsist on savings, but if you want to travel for several months or years you will need an income to sustain you on the road. You could freelance, take odd jobs wherever you go, teach English, work for accommodation… there are plenty of options if you are creative and willing to work hard.

Get rid of your stuff. Own only what you can carry in a backpack. You can keep your stuff in storage – or if you can sell it to pay for your travels. You can always buy more stuff when you come back (if you do come back, that is).

How will you document your adventures? You will want to record the amazing experiences you have so that you can better remember them later, so consider keeping a journal or starting a travel blog.

Last but not least… leave all preconceived notions and expectations at home. If you assume things are going to be just like they are in your hometown, you will be confused and frustrated. If you are open minded and embrace the moment, you’ll learn a lot about other cultures and about yourself.

Becoming a Vagabond isn’t easy but if you want to live that HellaLife, your gonna have to make your move!

So if you could leave tomorrow, where would you go?
