Why Nomadic Choice?
Living a lifestyle of choosing travel experiences over stuff
“Nomadic Choice” is a lifestyle of choosing travel experiences over stuff. Buying, owning, and storing fewer material possessions provides freedom for more travel and other life experiences.
I fondly remember encounters with authentic people who cross my path and without them knowing they change me in some way and remain in my memory forever. Today I had one of those encounters. This morning my friend’s 14-year-old daughter, Lily, and I struck out early for a hike through Garden of the Gods park […]
Aloha Hawaii is one of only two places I return to again and again. From the minute the airplane door opens and the warm, floral, salty air floats in an instant calm sets in. There is a simplicity of life here for me. Tropical flowers are eye candy on a grand scale. Plumeria against a […]
Minimalism, the notion of buying and owning only the items you really need, is growing in popularity and especially among millennials. This generation has grown up consuming digital content from music, books and games rather than the physical formats of their parents’ generation (like books, CD’s, DVD’s, board-games). The non-millennials are quickly adapting to the […]
Some of my earliest childhood memories include traveling and waiting around airports.

Pura Vida “pure life” or the “simple life” is the term Costa Rican’s use to describe their way of life. It’s completely accurate.

I’ve always had an appreciation for uniqueness and for that reason Venice is a top destination. Nowhere else in the world will you find over 100 little islands connected together by a vast network of canals. A thousand years of architecture, history, art, music, and romantic gondola rides in the evening while sharing wine and […]
is my life philosophy. It’s a complete sentence that sums up my approach to living. The phrase comes from the Roman poet Horace (23 BC), and literally means “Pluck the day“, though it’s usually translated as “Seize the day“. If you’ve read my bio you know that my younger sister, Julie, recently died of brain […]
Rome is a fantastic city. You will love this city for the history and ancient ruins. There are close to 3,000 years of architecture, art and culture to experience. It’s a sprawling city so it’s a good idea to have a plan to cover the top sights on your itinerary. We recently went to Rome […]
The average American household has a whopping 300,000 items, a two – car garage that one third of us can’t park a car in because there isn’t room. We have basements and closets jammed full of ‘stuff’. There are approximately 50,000 storage facilities in the US that is more than the total number of Starbucks […]
The most flexible way to travel I’ve traveled extensively for many years – both for business and for pleasure. One thing I know to be true is that traveling for pleasure without an overly structured day to day travel itinerary is liberating! Having an open plan gives you the ultimate freedom in choosing whether to […]
