Gustav Andersson: Creating a life well-lived

October 22, 2014 |

Gustav Andersson’s wanderings began in 2011 as an experiment to explore how a modern nomadic life can best be geo-independent, sustainable, and eudaemonic (you’ll have to listen to find out what that means!). Now, he’s working full-time as a remote worker as he continues to travel the world.

Most Memorable Location-Independent Experiences
Burning Man. I go there every year now, and it always blows my mind.

Biggest Surprise along the Way
How impossible it is to actively keep in touch with old friends when you no longer live in the same place. (Beyond the passive social media stuff.)
