Welcome to A Nomadic Existence – thanks so much for stopping by!

We’re Mike and Amy – two Australians in our mid-twenties, who sold everything we owned, packed up our carry on backpacks and took off to travel the world!

We firmly believe that travel is the one thing you can buy that makes you richer. The joy that comes from seeing firsthand the worlds most spectacular sights, venturing into the unknown, forming friendships with people around the globe and pushing your own personal boundaries is incomparable!

That’s why we created A Nomadic Existence. Our little corner on the internet where we document our travels and adventures in the form of stories, guides and inspirational posts, in the hope to open your eyes to a new destination, a new experience and inspire you to travel more.

We always tell it like it is. If we’ve been disappointed, didn’t rate something highly, had a fantastic experience or got screwed over – we’ll tell you about it, and also arm you with as much information as possible so that you can either a) not repeat our mistakes, or b) re-create our adventures for yourself!

Why a nomadic existence? Right now, we’re travelling from place to place across Asia. Next year, we might find ourselves a base and explore the Middle East or Africa. Perhaps after that, we might move to Europe, and travel over there. The world is our oyster, we have no plans to settle down and, for now – we hope to exist from place to place, exploring all that the world has to offer.

Catch up on the journey so far…

Each month we share an ‘on the road’ article – a summary of what we’ve been up to with a selection of more personal photos and experiences. This is where we share ALL the sides of travel – good, bad and ugly – and a great insight into what life on the road can be like.

Catch up on our journey so far – from when we took off in July 2015 to date.

Be inspired.

We like to travel at a slower pace than most – we believe this is the best way to get to know a place and it’s people. Doing so means we get to investigate places more fully, and share our knowledge and tips with you.

Hover over our Destinations tab and explore all our articles on the incredible places we’ve visited. We are constantly adding to this as we travel more – exotic locations like India, China and Turkey will get you started!

Here’s a selection of our most popular articles to date:
