What a fantastic post! I think about how to do this all the time.
I’ve lived abroad a couple times, but now just travel in the summer, which means I’m out there some of the time and here–where I live–most of the time. I totally believe in living in the moment–while on the road and at home–and do it as much as I can. I also love the idea of “nomadic serendipity.” Amazing how things happen–the way things fall into place and flow, etc.
Anyway, I think it’s important to be able to do this when you return home, too, and not just on the road. And so, I thank you for sharing your tips here. Very relevant to so many of us travelers/nomads!
