“In the Daylight, Anywhere Feels Like Home”

Nomads are usually considered to be unrooted people without a home. As for me, I’ve lived in six different places in the past five years, but I don’t consider myself as having no roots. Who’s to say you can’t find your home everywhere?

At 30, I’m still looking for the perfect place to spend my life, the perfect job, the perfect situation. But before that happens, home is where I hang my hat. So here’s to all the other NoMads, those people out there still looking for their perfect. Let’s make everywhere our home.

    Well, I am in my (early) 40s and still a nomad… I have been living in different countries since 1991. (USA, UK & Scandinavia). Here’s something I learned from an old gentleman once. He too, had spent most of his life living overseas and he said said to me- beware of 9 years. After nine years the happiest place on earth is an aeroplane. You are either on your way back home or on your way back to your “new” home. I did not understand it then, but after 19 years….I understand it now.

    Amazing! This really speaks for the people who are always travelling, and have no permanent place to lay their head. I feel the same, but I don’t want to settle down soon.

  12. Neat. I’m in the same boat, in the past three years I’ve lived in the middle of Illinois, Baltimore, Washington DC, Destin Florida and Manila, Philippines! Where have you been floating between?

  13. “Let’s make everywhere your home”…love it!

  14. Funny, my twenties was stable in London, but on my 30th birthday, I revealed to all that I was leaving to start a new life as a nomad.

    I now have no fixed home, moving from country to country, staying a few months in each place. It isn’t easy, but it is very rewarding, and I have never felt so alive!
