Short time travel is fun, but some countries are just too far to realistically be visited for a week or so.
Because of my thirst to see the world, and my only 3 weeks of annual vacation at my latest job in Canada, I had to find a solution. So in 2016 I did it. I quit my job to travel the world for a full year.

Full disclaimer: it can seem ironic to dedicate a website to short term adventure travel while having the luxury of travelling for a full year myself. However, I definitely intend to return to my ”normal” lifestyle after this year and still wanted to share the stories that happen on the road while exploring far-flung destinations like Uzbekistan or Australia!
Plus, plenty of amazing travel blogs already cover in details the nomad lifestyle and long term travel in general so I won’t go into much details.
