My name is David Meier. For several years, I have had a strong interest in travel to see other parts of the world. Yes, I did take the occasional vacations during my “working” days. They always seemed to leave me unsatisfied, feeling I didn’t really see my destination for what it had to offer. Especially, when staying in the various tourist areas. My circumstances had changed when I elected to draw an early pension, thus affording me a modicum of funds to cover monthly living expenses. Finding my desire to see other parts of this blue marble growing more intense, I began reading about travel through the various internet blogs and newsletters. Recently, a concept struck me as something that I should do. It was called immersion travel. A slow travel from place to place to really learn about the locals and their culture. This blog is dedicated to providing commentary and information on my nomadic travels.
Once I decided to embark upon this new adventure, I had to make some hard decisions about assets and personal property. It was emotionally upsetting at first, but as I took more and more actions to ready myself to become a nomad it became easier to let go of “things”. During the last month before my departure on my grand adventure of nomadic immersion travel, I found an immersion language and online business retreat being offered by Marginal Boundaries in Cancun, Mexico, the very destination of my initial travels. This opportunity just couldn’t be passed up, so off I went.
Learning a new language was challenging, but also kept me on my toes and exercised the “old” brain. During the retreat, I decided to leverage my past experiences in real estate to start a real estate services business to further support my immersion travels. I’m not certain where these nomadic adventures will take me next, but that is part of the adventure. I am hopeful that through these experiences, I can show others who enjoy nomadic adventure and discovery of other cultures that all it takes is just taking those first steps to achieving this great lifestyle.
