Frustrated with his job and lack of fulfillment, Life Nomading got its start in 2014 as a small blog where our founder Ian Hoyt passionately shared his thoughts about what nomading meant to our generation of “against-the-grain” goers.
His goal was to create a place where the community can come together to share ideas, have experiences together, and ultimately become more well rounded, adventurers.
What was once a small community of readers back in 2014, has since grown into a tight knit community of travelers, life adventurers, and people that refuse to settle for what society says is the correct ‘path’.
After many years of writing, traveling, and spending time with the Life Nomading Explorers Club group, the Life Nomading team had grown and our next big steps were in sight.
We travel because experience is the only cure for our souls. We believe that seeing is better than dreaming. We are the doers not the wishers.
Over the last three years, we kept getting requests from the community to create fun and exciting experiences/trips for those that had connected with each other in our group.
It was a great idea, but Ian knew he couldn’t do this alone. That’s when his good friend, former roommate, and travel addict Marek came aboard. Together in 2016, they launched their first two Life Nomading Trips™ destinations. That brings us to now.
We’re so excited about this next chapter of Life Nomading. Bringing our millennial generation group travel in a way that has never been done before.
