Our mission is to share our vegan/vegetarian, nomadic lifestyle with you and to inspire you to explore the world by foot. Affordably.
Nomadic. Vegetarian. Hikers. Let’s adventure together.
Avid adventurers. Global circumnavigators. Hikers.
We’re Chris and Steve. We’ve sold it all, retired from Corporate America, packed our two carry-ons, and fleed out into the world.
Chris loves to share hiking, housesitting and vegan-eating tips, while Steve shares his Forex knowledge. Together, we’ve visited over 62 countries and all 50 states.
The secret to our affordable lifestyle is through strategic accommodations via housesitting and Airbnb stays. We throw in travel hacking to make things interesting.

Big Bend National Park sat on my to-do list for years. Three times I attempted to go, and three times the trip cancelled. Big Bend is a tough place to get to--you can't drive by "on the way to" somewhere. You have to intentionally go. The sunset isn't the best part!...
Creating a nomad life takes imagination and a balance among housesitting, Airbnb stays and hotels. We answer your FAQs.
How’d we go from a 2800 square foot house and garage to two carry ons? Our extreme downsizing isn’t for the faint of heart, but we did net $91k more than we thought we would.
