A GLOBAL MOBILE MOTHER’S DAY

Global mobile citizens, naturally, have a different Mother’s Day experience than they would in their home country. First, it’s not celebrated on the same day. Last week was Mother’s Day in the Czech Republic. It passed with a whisper. Nothing like Mother’s Day in the United States celebrated at mythic proportions, fueled by the capitalist […]

LIBERATION DAY

We are celebrating Liberation Day here in my new home in Prague. It is a day filled with symbolism for me. I am familiar with the history of this day in this country. The people of this nation had their lives back. Had survived a dark time. Could rebuild. That is just what this city […]

CLICK YOU HEELS TWICE AND YOU’RE HOME

  It’s natural that I would take stock of my time in Seattle on the day of my departure. It’s been an impactful trip. I am glad my reintroduction to the United States was in a city I didn’t know well. I could say hello to my country with a fresh perspective. With the same […]

Crazy Foxes Rule the Day

At the beginning of the year I asked the question are Digital Nomads Crazy or Crazy Like a Fox? Now that the media momentum mounts – with people in the know predicting that the Future of Work is Freelancing Crazy Foxes are in a good position to ride the freelance wave. According to a recent SAP […]

“Modern” India Not Quite Ready for the Digital Nomad

I travelled to India for the holidays to meet my daughter.  We are both living a nomadic life and had not seen in each since she packed up all her things with one months notice and moved to Bangkok to pursue startup gold.  She needed to leave Thailand for visa purposes and we picked a […]

The New Innovators – Generations Take to the Road

As I was walking through the streets of Prague, lost again, I realized how much being a foreigner fires up your brain cells.  I can’t help but be more creative in a new country because I am trying to figure out what’s going on 24/7. There is a peacefulness to it.  I’m not bombarded with […]
