My name is Talisa, but you can call me Tali. I’m a Digital Entrepreneur. Yep, I’m….. a….. Digital…… Nomadic….Entrepreneur (tilts head while cupping chin between my thumb and forefinger). I still can’t believe that I’m typing this and saying this and living this. You see, I really didn’t even know what the heck a Digital Nomad was just a few months ago, and here I am creating my blog so that you and others can follow me along on this wild and crazy journey.
In some ways I have the typical “Quit your job and travel the World story.” I ditched the American Dream of the 9 to 5, sold everything I own, including my shiny black BMW (Ouch!) and gave in to my undying and never ending wanderlust….. but it wasn’t some smooth, well thought out and planned transition by any means.
Throughout my blog, I explain how I got here and how I’m making it all work as things progress.
I’m what one might call a slow traveler. I like to spend enough time in a new place to really embrace the culture and experience it the way the locals do. Its also a lot more economical this way, so its a win-win in my opinion.
Here I document all of my discoveries, from picturesque scenery, to tasty eateries, to my nifty fashion finds. I’ll eventually share details regarding how I fund my lifestyle and my thoughts about some of the many books I read.
This space is just a hodgepodge of happenings in my unpredictable World, and I’m happy to have you along for the journey.
More facts about Me!
What’s your favorite food? Thin crust cheese pizza with a little extra sauce. Yum!
What’s your favorite city? Seattle Washington as of today. It’s me in every way.
What’s your favorite Pass time? Probably exercising my unmanaged ADHD on the internet. I seriously can hop around from one thread to the next, losing focus over and over again for hours. Sigh…
What’s the last book you read? I’m currently listening to The 4 Hour Work Week daily.
What has been the best trip you’ve ever gone on? This is a tough one. If I have to choose I’ll say my first solo trip, which was to the Portland Oregon where I took a scenic and eventful drive up the Oregon Coast.
What’s your favorite Netflix Binge? I love Netflix and again this is tough but the one that always comes to mind is Bloodline. This show caught me completely off guard and sucked me in like crazy.
What kind of traveler would you describe yourself as? I’m definitely NOT a relaxer which is one of main reasons I like to travel alone. I can’t wrap my brain around going through all of the logistics of travel to go relax, but hey to each their own. I travel to learn and grow as a person. In order to do this I need a good mix of the tourist scene and a chance to submerge myself into the local scene. I want to know the city’s history and culture. I love walkable cities with distinctive neighborhoods,I take my time to walk them studying the architecture and going into the local shops.
Any weird travel quirks? I’m always looking for historic or scenic cemeteries. I’ve seen some beautiful ones and even went to a theatrical performance in one once. They have so much character and they provoke a great deal of thought.
What matters to you most? Healing the little girl within me. I actually host a podcast and write a blog all about family dynamics. You should check it out over at www.kinfolkchronicles.com
What makes you laugh? I often times have to keep things I find hilarious to myself. Inappropriate is probably the best word to describe my sense of humor.
What makes you cry? I cry a lot more due to profound synchronicity than I do sadness, so I find myself crying in the most bizarre places such as when crossing a busy street or entering the Louvre. “You don’t know like I know!”
What scares you? Heights, hence the reason you will not be able to deem me the extreme and most adventurous traveler.
What wakes you up in the morning? I genuinely love my life. Each day I’m excited to see what I’ll stumble upon.
