Vicky White: A Spacious Nomadic Life
December 30, 2015 | Podcast
After spending most of her adult life outside her native New Zealand, Vicky moved back in 2014 and is now enjoying a nomadic lifestyle living in a bus and traveling around the country. Along the way she realized she didn’t want to continue her coaching business, and that thanks to her simplified lifestyle she doesn’t need to work right now, giving her even more freedom.
Most Memorable Location-Independent Experiences
I think my most memorable experience was a six-week adventure I had just recently in the North Island, where most of my friends are. I parked up in friends’ yards, stayed at fabulous beaches and had other friends drive fairly long distances to come see me where I was. Felt like the perfect mix of connecting, alone time and exploring hot springs! That’s freedom to me.
Biggest Surprise along the Way
Returning to NZ shook everything up. I was surprised to find I’m no longer interested in my coaching business. I’m also sort of surprised at how well everything has flowed for me since returning to live in NZ.
