Yvette Morrissey is a 29 year old digital nomad from New Zealand. Every six months she packs up her possessions and moves to a different country. She is currently working and living in Edinburgh, Scotland.Yvette is a budget traveler and over on her blog Wayfaring Kiwi she talks about her travels around the world, working remotely, and her random, crazy adventures including hiking over 500 miles on the Scottish National Trail. In this episode we talk about how she quit her job in New Zealand, saved $8,000 NZD in 2 months (starting with no savings) and sold everything she owned to travel the world solo. While exploring Canada for 7 months she lived in a van where she saved a lot of money on housing and learned how to be comfortable with the uncomfortable.
Yvette introduces us to the concept of “accidental adventures” and teaches us how being open and following your intuition can lead to creating some of the most amazing and unexpected life experiences.
