Welcome to The Professional Hobo!
I’m Nora Dunn, and I’m a travel-addict. So much so, in fact, that I sold everything I owned in 2006 to embrace my lifelong dreams of long-term travel. I had no idea where I’d go, how long the trip would last, or how I’d make money. But I made a pretty good go of it, traveling full-time for 12+ years. While I now have a home base in Toronto Canada, I continue to travel for about half of each year.
This website is not only about my
(mis)adventures around the world (though you’ll get lots of that, along with some fun videos); it’s also about how to travel full-time in a financially sustainable way.
See, early on I figured out how to make a living while I travel so I could continue to travel indefinitely. And while I was getting my online career off the ground, I figured out how to make my money go as far as possible, with travel techniques that don’t sacrifice on style but save a bundle.
Then I parlayed my expertise as a former Certified Financial Planner into my current career as a writer, and my current lifestyle as a world-adventurer. Ever the financial planner, I’ve kept track of my income and expenses meticulously along the way, and I publish them every year, so you can see for yourself that full-time travel can be totally financially sustainable.
See? This is why I’m The Professional Hobo. I’m not just a homeless person….I add a professional edge to my homelessness. Stick around, and I can show you the secrets to redesigning your life so you can travel full-time in a financially stainable way yourself.
