World Travel as a Nomadic Seniors

News Portal Social Travel YES friends

Nice Instagram interview of our YES friends, Brian and Beth, who have been travelling the world for years using some surprising low cost lifestyles to help make senior life more affordable. They have lived in France, Portugal, Panama, Costa Rica, Mexico, Ecuador, and many more. They both enjoy hiking in the mountains, and seeing new worlds. They are true Nomads with no fixed home address anymore, no debt, and explorers at heart.

The interview is about 60 minutes long: Instagram Link (note there a a few technical glitches in the beginning, but once you get past that it is stable)

Some of the items they discuss include:

  • How do you find 1 month stays that include free lodging, food and transportation?

  • Air travel – Carry on vs checked bag.
  • Walking across the border can be much cheaper than flying in some of the Latin countries.
  • Dealing with Language differences.
  • Apps for Nomad Life: Romeo, Moovit, Bus and public transit, YouTube.
