After 10 years in the Internet industry, veteran web designer Kelly Hale and developer Mike Schimanowsky (Shim) have sold their worldly belongings, bid farewell to friends and family, packed a laptop and traded in the daily 9-5 for a life of nomadic freelancing and travel.
Our first stop? It was the Philippines, where began our search for the idyllic stretch of sandy beach… complete with WiFi connection.
Since then, we’ve been through Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Hong Kong. After a year abroad in Southeast Asia, we returned home to Canada for a brief visit with family and friends. Then continuing the journey, we moved on to Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Belize, and Mexico. After nearly two and a half years abroad, we’ve crossed the big pond and are now currently exploring Europe and the UK.
Here we hope to relate our travels and post pictures for friends and family, and to provide some insight into the challenges and rewards of our journey.
Mike and Kelly
