For the past 4-years, I have been living as a “Digital Nomad”. Earning a living on the internet, and living in new and different countries every few months. Despite the temporary nature of this lifestyle, I focus on slow, meaningful travel.
I choose the country or city that I want to live in based on a personal project or bucket list item that I plan to accomplish. I feel that the experience of a new city, meeting new people, and experiencing new cultures continually force me to learn, grow and see the world differently.
My aim is to capture and share these experiences, as a way to inspire The Freedom Fighter community to take action and find the magic that exists in all of our lives.
I knew nothing about Georgia before I arrived. I had been meaning to check out some information on Wikipedia and read a few travel blogs, but I never quite got there. 'Why are you going to Georgia?', people would ask me upon hearing of my next destination. "I had a...read more
Yesterday afternoon, after Crossfit, I decided to try and get lost and explore a new area on my way slowly back home. My idea was to discover some new areas of the city and to find somewhere enticing to chill, read my book and grab a bite to eat. I turned left and...read more

"You're from South Africa?" the immigration officer asked me through the glass window as I approached the counter. "Yes, I flew via Istanbul", I replied. The man then made a call on his cell phone and within a few seconds, a surly looking man in an...read more
For the last four months, I've had a "coming soon" page on my website. I initially built the original Freedom Fighter site when I realized that my life, how I travel and how I make a living where suddenly the same thing. Finding alignment in these areas of my life is...read more
As I write this I'm told by the first officer that I'm at 30,000 ft above mean sea-level. I'm on an airline that I've never heard of travelling to a country that I've never been to before. Unless there are unforeseen delays I'll transfer in El Salvador, and in 4 hours...read more
"... it's a cycle of four thousand six hundred and forty-seven kilometers", the words lingered in the air as I tried to get my head around the number. That was five months ago when I met a friend Warrick for a coffee and he told me about his cycle trip from...read more

By the time you read this I'm probably going to be an hour or 2 into my 10-week cycle from Johannesburg to Kilimanjaro. It's been months of planning and with just a few hours to go (as I write this it's 18:30), the complete lack of worry has turned into some...read more
