Andrew recently read an article on NBC Bay Area saying over half of Californians want to leave the state of California. People often complain about their living conditions and the decline of the United States, but so very few people actually take action and move. The difference between those who take actions and those who don’t? The people who are taking actions are working and striving towards something important and meaningful to them. And for those who don’t? They’re running away from their problems and, through that, all they want to do is complain.

[16:30] Where did this nomad journey start for Louise?
[19:00] The purpose of Louise’s YouTube channel is to let people know that there are options.
[19:35] How did Louise meet her partner, Ed?
[24:30] When Louise and Ed moved in together the very first time, they had very little problems because they didn’t have financial issues and they were able to hire a maid to clean the house.
[26:30] Louise’s family back home thinks she and Ed are poor because they live in Thailand. Quite the contrary.
[27:15] What other benefits does Louise have by living in a less expensive country like the UK?
[33:25] Why does Louise think that there are more men living a nomad lifestyle? How can we incorporate more women into this?
