At the end of every month, I like to share the things that inspired me during that month.
It’s inspiration that helps drive us into action. It’s important to surround ourselves with positive, uplifting people and information so we can keep striving forward to our dream.

Why we need nomads
This post by Vanessa Runs had me so excited to be jumping back into the nomadic world in one month. The nomadic life rocks and I’m so pumped to be contributing to the world in such a positive way. Who’d of thought?
Do you really need to know why I travel?
Loved this video our friend Swanny from South Australian Tourism shared with us via twitter. It’s filmed in South Australia and sums up completely why we have this need for travel. How beautiful does SA look? We are so inspired to see more of this State.
We met Swanny and Shane at the SoME conference and both had a lot to share about why we should travel to this state. We are hooked and I think we’ll be staying longer than we thought.
Okay, so I am 37 and an Aussie and never owned a pair of Uggies.
I do really love that this is an Aussie icon though. I didn’t’ realize how much until we asked you all what you’d love as an Aussie gift from us and the resounding call out was Ugg boots. we were super stoked to give a pair away to John in New Jersey, who tweeted us this picture.
I feel like I have the world’s most cuddliest sheep massaging my feet. They are the bomb. I’m excited to take these babies around OZ with us and even though we are chasing the Aussie summer, I reckon I’ll still wear them.
Society by Eddie Vedder
“Society you are a crazy breed, I hope you are not lonely without me. Society, have mercy on me. Hope you’re not angry if I disagree”
Society, I travel because I’m lonely with you. There’s too much hatred, self-indulgence, and judgement. I prefer to float without attachment from one society to the next, never staying long enough to commit to their crazy, instead choosing to live my own with liberation.
BTW – don’t you think it’s cool that Eddie jams with Johnny Depp in this video?
Travel to create a business and lifestyle you love
I had a post published on Under 30 CEO sharing my thoughts on how travel can help you to develop skills that can lead to you creating your own business or a lifestyle you really love.
These are based on what we have learned from travel that has helped us to create a lifestyle of travel. We no longer have a life we feel we need to escape from. That equals pure bliss.
You can read the post here and then tell me why wouldn’t you want to travel?

A place for me
I think this movie went straight to DVD, but that doesn’t mean there are no great lessons to take from it. I really loved it.
Firstly, I watched it on a rare “I’m taking time out for me moment”. Secondly, It is filmed in North Carolina, the love of my life.
Thirdly, they explore the aspect of writing. I watched it and I realized, I want to be a writer and I love it. I think I always have, I’ve just always though I was no good, so didn’t try.
I still think that, but now I think I maybe have a sum of experiences that I can share that can deem me worthy. I just need a good editor to get me through. I’m just going to follow my heart and see what happens.
Reading: Not Quite Nigella, My path to happiness through baking and blogging
Over the past few months we have gotten to know Lorraine Elliot, the person behind one of Australia’s biggest food blogs, Not Quite Nigella.
I finished reading her book this month and enjoyed hearing the story behind her path from working in advertising to starting a blog based on her passion of eating. It’s amazing how you can create the life you really love through blogging and just trying something new.
Be warned, you will feel like eating a lot while eating this book.
One of my favourite parts was when she decided to test out her theory that you could crash an exclusive party by walking in with a wine glass with just a splash of wine in the bottom. I’m always up for new ideas on how to crash parties and get free wine and food!
Our readers sharing their travels
Each month we ask our readers to share where they have been travelling to for the past month.
That is the motto Craig and I have always used to push through to making our dreams come true. That’s why it’s important to learn from those who have what you want.
The problem is now my bucket list just keeps getting longer. Good problem to have right?
We love to hear more inspiration!
