The Digital Nomad Lifestyle In A Day

This is a day in the life of a digital nomad – or rather one of the many versions or our days as nomads while working from the road.

We are Eliane and Damian, two outdoor enthusiasts who became digital nomads, live and travel full time in a self-converted cargo van and sometimes we stay in our travel trailer, in a tent, in Airbnbs or Hotel rooms. We travel full time while working remotely and on location and are striving to live eco-friendly as possible and love to share our experience, journey and knowledge with you.

This is how we make a living while working remotely and from different locations:

Eliane is working a few different jobs:
She’s a Registered Nurse and works short assignments as a Travel Nurse in different hospitals throughout the US.
She also works as a Social Media Manager for remoteseo.us
Besides that, she is also a Licensed Massage Therapist and Certified Health Coach with a Certification in Whole Food Plant Based Nutrition and has her own business while also working as an independent contractor in Florida, New York and throughout the US.
Her business website: bodono.com

Damian is a Search Engine Optimization Specialist and Web Developer and works as a Consultant and Independent Contractor for various clients from enterprise to small businesses. He has over 18 years hands-on experience with web development and SEO in various verticals from digital marketing manager to social media intelligence analyst, business development, online marketing and web analytics.

Van Life Cross Country California to Florida

Our vanlife road trip from California to Florida led us through some very diverse and amazing landscapes. We loved hiking the Imperial Sand Dunes near Yuma Arizona, camping out in the Sonoran Desert and hiking in beautiful Saguaro National Park near Tucson Arizona and at White Sands National Monument in New Mexico.

We camped in our van on BLM land (public land), in various public parking lots in California and New Orleans and stayed on an organic fruit orchard in Austin, Texas through Harvest Hosts.

Harvest Hosts is a program that allows for free overnight camping at participating farms, breweries, wineries, distilleries, museums and golf clubs for a small annual membership fee. For more info visit the Harvest Hosts website: http://harvesthosts.refr.cc/wandergreen

While at Austin Orchards, we had the honor to interview Jason Sawyer the manager of the orchard who talked to us about sustainable and eco-friendly farming and how he makes Spicy Peach BBQ Sauce and Jams: https://youtu.be/pZghUa6B5-s

During our road trip we enjoyed some delicious vegan food in Los Angeles and San Diego California, Tucson Arizona, Austin Texas and New Orleans Louisiana. These were our favorite vegan-friendly restaurants during the trip:

The Butcher’s Daughter, Los Angeles
Cafe Gratitude, Los Angeles
Jyoti-Bihanga, San Diego
World Curry, San Diego:
Govindas Natural Foods Buffet, Tucson
Tumerico, Tucson
The Beer Plant, Austin

Sustainable Living: Millwood Flower Farm – Local Ocala, Florida (Interview)

On our travel through Florida we visited Millwood Flower Farm, a sustainable and organic flower farm. We had the honor to speak to one of the owners Seth Lyons who invited us for an interview on the farm to talk about sustainable agriculture, no-dig farming and organic flower farming. Millwood Flower Farm is located in Reddick, Florida and sells its flower bouquets at the Farmers Market in Ocala and directly to customers who order their flower arrangements on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis for their office or home.

Valley Of The Gods Camping Mexican Hat

One of our bucket list items on our trip through Utah was to camp out at the incredible Valley of the Gods which is located in the Mexican Hat area.

A few years ago we discovered the Valley of the Gods while driving through the area and were so taken by its beauty that we were looking forward to coming back one day and spending a few days of free camping in the midst of the stunning monoliths, pinnacles and rock formations that were eroded by wind and water over time.

Since the Valley of the Gods is owned by the Bureau of Land Management, which is the administration that oversees public land, wild camping is free and open to the public: https://www.blm.gov/visit/search-deta…

This means dry camping without any amenities, carry in and carry out and leaving no trace is an important part of wild camping on this public land. Since Monument Valley is only a short drive away we combined a visit to these iconic desert landscapes and enjoyed a couple relaxing nights under the stars. The night sky is incredible out there and one can see the Milky Way with the bare eye. A great place for night photography for sure. The gravel and dirt road through the Valley of the Gods is a 17 mile long loop which is great for mountain biking, hiking or taking a scenic drive.
