Gustav Andersson: Creating a life well-lived

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.
