Who is millynomad?

I’m a lively, energetic person who tries to make the most of every minute of every day. My favourite things include travelling, electronic music, food & wine, dancing, writing, nature, being naked… I thrive on the unique, crazy experiences that come with being a nomad and will rarely shy away from anything or anyone.

When I first decided to go travelling, I never even planned on visiting Argentina, but a chance encounter lead me to a family from Patagonia, in the south of the country, who wanted someone to live with them and help them learn English. I jumped at the opportunity, for I was still far from ready to go home, and so abandoned my flight from Rio de Janeiro (losing 4oo quid in the process) and jumped on a plane to Buenos Aires instead. After spending a month with the family, I returned to Buenos Aires to look for work and managed to find a job with a travel agency, who specialise in travel across Argentina and parts of Brazil. I was promoted to English Content Manager after writing a string of successful travel articles and completed a year at the agency, doing pretty much exactly what I wanted to do. These days I am living in the UK once again, dreaming of my next big adventure…

Message to all those who want to travel: DO IT!! No buts!

  5. I came across your delightful blog whilst Googling El Bolson and see an adventurous like-minded soul in your writings. Some people are born travelers, (while others remain tourists (which is maybe a good thing)) and will forever be drawn to the distant horizon.
    I’m always drawn to fellow travelers for the simple reason of a shared affliction that has no cure.
    Safe and joyful travels.

    • Thank you Bert, it’s nice of you to refer to my blog as ‘delightful’! I too am always drawn to those travellers who delve a little deeper, and don’t simply stick to the tourist trail. I plenty of people like that whilst on the road and have nothing but fond memories of them and our shared experiences Did you visit Bolson in the end? What did you think? I absolutely love it there and wish I could be back… are you on the road at the moment, or are you in South Africa? That’s somewhere I want to live one day!
