So this is a pretty bad time to be a nomad. The husband and I have had to deal with this whole Covid-19 thing while we are basically homeless. We have recently been taking a break from travel, spending the last six months in Guadalajara, Mexico. We had been switching from Airbnb to Airbnb, seeing… Continue reading Not a Good Time to Be a Nomad
