Who's behind Nomad@50?
50S OUTSIDE THE BOX
Although, when they ask for my name in coffee shops, I always tell them my daughter’s name, Ari. I never liked my own! To me, it feels like I’m a character in one of Almodovar’s movies!
I’m a wanderer and an observer. I love to read, listen to and watch stories unfold. And I love to write stories.
My first journey overseas was at the age of 15. I left my native Barcelona and travelled to London to learn English. At 20 I left for Africa and detoured towards Asia.
Thirty-three years later and I’m still out and about!
Sometimes on my own, others with my partner Elias, and others with my two wonderful children, Ari and Aidan.
And that conversation made me think. Somehow, he was right! Most of the people in our social circle – 50+ all of them – were tied up:
But I wasn’t.
As a copywriter, content creator and author, I am extremely fortunate to be able to travel from anywhere I want in this planet.
My children are all grown up and they love travelling as well.
I’m not tied up to a single location.
But somehow I’m linked to many.
And the question I asked myself that day, looking at my tired and worried friend was this:
Why should I be the exception?
Why do we have to follow the rules of a system that has us dancing to its whims all our lives?
And so that day I said F the system!
And that’s how that day I decided to give new life to an old project I created in 2011 while walking around Wakatipu Lake in the incomparable Queenstown (New Zeland).
And No-mad became Nomad@50
Yes, sure, Tere, lots of travelling, but what about your qualifications?
Who are you to give anyone advise on all these topics?
A really good question, the answer to which is this:
I’m just a real keen been! (as my daughter would say!)
I’ve always loved to learn new skills and bring new projects to life!
So, if you were looking for a sign, I'd llike to think I’m it!
If you were trying to find a reason to start thinking about yourself (finally!) and change your lifestyle… I’m your reason!
If you’re sick and tired of making sure everyone has their dreams come true but yours, join the Nomad@50 community!
I want to inspire you not only to pack your bags and travel more often.
Because that kind of inspiration you can find it in any of the millions of travel blogs that appear and disappear every day in Internet.
Nomad@50 wants to introduce you to a new way of living.
Us Nomad@s50 live to travel. And travel to live.
We free ourselves, in as much as possible, from the impositions of this system and we create a healthy, happy and minimalist path that leads us to unknown destinations.
We create a system around us that allows us to travel and live respectfully.
It allows us to travel and live slow.
It’s true – Being a Nomad@50 implies certain risks.
But as good old Carl Lewis used to say, avoiding risks is denying one’s right to experiment half of the emotions we are capable of feeling.
If you want to start enjoy this wonderful planet and your life to the fullest, you might need to take some risks!
And you might need to start saying no to others and yes to yourself!
So if you want to start writing a new and exciting chapter in your life at fifty (or sixty or seventy…!), join me.
And F the system!
Write your own path.
Be the Nomad@50 you have inside.
