The idea of a nomadic life first took root in my mind on New Year’s Day, 2011, while I still lived a normal life in London. I took my time to reflect and prepare for the journey ahead, with a minor break for a Mediterranean cruise. On 24 May I flew to Ljungby, my home town, to take a time-out between the old and the new.
With two short breaks to visit friends in London and New York, I then made my way to Los Angeles and Long Beach where I visited more friends and prepared for the Burning Man festival.
After Burning Man, I drove through Lake Tahoe to San Francisco. I spent five and a half weeks there, before returning to Long Beach for a short visit.
My three months in the US came to and end when at the end of October, I flew to Mexico City. I stayed there for almost two months.
After a short return to Sweden to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s Eve, I went to Switzerland. I was invited by a reader of The Modern Nomad to live with him in Lostorf for a while, but I also spent time in Zuich and Crans-Montana, where I went skiing.
After I left Switzerland, I spent a week in London and then two weeks in Long Beach / Los Angeles before moving on to Buenos Aires, where I lived for five months.
It was then time for my now annual Burning Man visit, using Long Beach as a base. I ended up staying there almost three months.
Next stop was New Zealand, but on the way I touched down in Hawaii. I lived in New Zealand, Wainuiomata and Autumn Farm before I moved on to Sydney. I returned to New Zealand with my parents for a few weeks before returning to Katoomba (near Sydney) for a month.
If you have tips on places to visits, please let me know. (Destinations with a friendly couch to sleep on for a few days get priority!)
