Jenn: Becoming a digital nomad just kind of fell into my lap! I started through teaching yoga and meditation as well as leading different ceremonies and community games. Eventually, I wanted to integrate another aspect into my business that didn’t depend on my physical presence so much. Flo and I decided to become business partners and create a business where we get to support artists and writers from around the world, while contributing to the spiritual liberation and personal growth of our collective. We collaborate with artists to create and sell oracle cards and tarot cards.
Flo: There’s two things I do for a living: First, I work in Amazon FBA and secondly, I run a meatless burger joint in Thailand which will soon also open up in Sri Lanka and France.
Jenn: Most of Western Europe and Scandinavia, India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Thailand, Australia, NZ… Right now we are in Sri Lanka, but we’re leaving for Bali soon!
Flo: France, Spain, The Netherlands, UK, Italy, Thailand, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Laos
“I’ve been to a lot of places in a short amount of time and I feel like my heart is in 20 different places all over the world. What’s beautiful, though, is that my heart is in 20 different places all over the world”Jenn
Jenn: When I’m traveling around the world, the thing that will always give me a sense of home are true and real connections with other people. Digital nomads are all kind of in the same boat. Some people are traveling for a few weeks and some for several years. No matter what, from my experience, everyone is always longing for authentic connections. So I only have to travel around for a few moments before I feel that sense of true home (especially with dope coworking spaces such as Outpost).
Flo: Freedom of traveling, working for yourself and meeting cool, interesting, spiritual and inspiring people. And also, let’s not forget about the cost of living and income ratio. That’s a big deal because you can have a strong feeling of a “luxurious” life plus nature which is just so beautiful. Super grateful for this.
Flo: Honestly, I think the community. Creating lasting relationships is the most difficult part as you meet a lot of travelers which can be exhausting in the long run because we all need meaningful and safe relationships which require work and commitment.
Jenn: I’d have to agree with Flo. Sometimes, the moment that you really ground into a community and establish it as a family, there is some sort of internal pull to be somewhere else. Naturally, I listen to those intuitive pulls. I’ve been to a lot of places in a short amount of time and I feel like my heart is in 20 different places all over the world. What’s beautiful, though, is that my heart is in 20 different places all over the world 😉
Flo: So far, Thailand! The community, the food, the coffee 🙂
Jenn: Bali! Super inspiring.

Flo: I actually became a digital nomad during the pandemic. Not thanks Covid, but thanks too.
Jenn: It helped me to branch out so that I now own two businesses: one on my own (service) and one with Flo (product). It gave me the energy and wisdom to realize that having multiple (different, yet complimentary) businesses is the way to go for me. And yes, we’ve traveled – in Thailand for most of the pandemic, then we went to France for a bit and now we’re in Sri Lanka.
Flo: A lot, it felt like being back at university, the best time ever. Pure bliss!
Jenn: Oh yeah! I love making friends. Digital nomads are so open!
Flo: Bali, France, Canada, Australia, Mexico … Everywhere. But we want to buy land soon, so we’re kind of dating the places at the moment to see who is our chosen one.
Jenn: haha I second what Flo says… Plus, I have a pull to go to Peru… wonder what that is about… hmmmm….
Flo: A dynamic pace of work and also having space for focusing. A place where I can get stuff done with a comfortable and beautifully creative environment and meet people for community purposes.
Jenn: Clean, beautiful, inspiring community, excellent wifi, creative space, dope coffee, and … a tea station!
Flo: Do it now and look for places where you can actually stay long-term (regarding visa, comfort of living, etc.) because eventually finding a supporting community is important. And stay for 6 to 12 months+ per place instead of changing every 3 months. That is a game changer for the intensity of your experience.
Jenn: Do it. Know that it’s not going to be easy all the time (especially if you’re an entrepreneur), but it’s so rewarding and yummy.
Flo: More established communities abroad.
Flo: Of course, but only if it’s the office of my company with beautiful values, and the same vibes as a coworking space.
Jenn: I wouldn’t see myself anywhere I “have to” be again. At first, I thought it could be cool to create a team in a physical environment, but I’m not sure I’d like that. I would be open to creating this if the environment was truly inspiring and authentically raises the vibration of those that step in it, otherwise, nah.
Flo: I met my wife, best friend and life adventure partner while traveling. I asked her to marry me hours after a crazy night out. We got married in Bangkok in the most random district’s office after bribing a cop to get married that day instead of waiting a month. Worth it.
Jenn: Yep. lol
