Nathan James Thomas, originally from New Zealand, bought a ticket for 20,000 kilometres on the Greyhound Bus network in Australia when he was 17 years old. Over the next decade he lived in China, Spain, Poland, and Hungary, visiting and experiencing dozens of other countries along the way.

In 2014, Nathan founded the digital travel magazine Intrepid Times as a vehicle for sharing stories from the road and as an excuse to meet and interview his favorite writers. It has since grown into a thriving global community of thousands of writers and travellers. Nathan’s own travel writing has been published in places like Roads and Kingdoms and Outpost Magazine.

With his two previous Exisle Publishing titles, Fearless Footsteps and Travel Your Way, Nathan presents a vision of travel that is both challenging and humbling, an experience not of finding yourself, but of losing yourself and becoming immersed in the places where you find yourself.

Discover the truth behind the digital nomad dream and master your own location-independent life.

The allure of becoming a digital nomad has inspired many to leave their jobs and embrace a life that is both global and free from the daily 9-to-5 grind. Picture traveling to exotic destinations, connecting with fascinating people, and embarking on endless adventures―all while earning a living with just a few keystrokes.

However, many find themselves disillusioned in pursuit of this dream. The realities of a digital nomad life are far from simple, and amid ongoing global uncertainty, the complexities of life on the move have become even more daunting to navigate.

Yet, with the complexities of today’s world arise unprecedented opportunities: remote work has transformed from a rarity to a viable option within reach for many. As companies compete for top talent, opportunities for workers across industries to establish themselves as digital nomads are more abundant than ever.

In Untethered, you’ll uncover the secrets to crafting a digital nomad lifestyle in today’s complex world. Step-by-step guidance will show you how to move from wherever you are now to a fully location-independent reality as a freelancer, remote worker, or entrepreneur.

With gripping travel stories and insightful case studies, combined with practical, real-world guidance from successful digital nomads of diverse backgrounds, you’ll determine if the digital nomad lifestyle is right for you and uncover the keys to living a life truly untethered by location.

The author is a veteran travel author, founder of the Intrepid Times literary hub, and has been a digital nomad for the past 10 years. He’s well qualified to offer advice and he does so in a chatty manner.”

Travel is the opposite of prejudice; it is curiosity, openness, and connection. Now, when our world is in flux, travel matters more than ever. How we travel has changed, but why we travel has not. With barriers and restrictions coming and going at a dizzying rate, now is the time to learn how to make the most out of whatever travel opportunities we are able to seize.

With the right techniques and attitude, travel can open our eyes to new cultures and dispel stereotypes. It can force us out of our comfort zone. However, the benefits travel can unlock – increased understanding of the world, greater courage, better connection between cultures – don’t come automatically. Truly experiencing foreign cultures is something we need to work at.

From advice on how to accurately understand new places to practical tips on meeting with locals, overcoming the language barrier, and asking the right questions, Travel Your Way shows you how to discover the world on your own terms. The result is a more rewarding journey and a greater sense of connection to everywhere you go, whether you’re on a business trip, or backpacking across the globe.

Learn how to make the most of every place you go by seeing the world with open, curious eyes, plan with excitement for future journeys, and reflect with greater appreciation on the travels you have experienced so far.

“A serious-minded and thoughtful engagement with some of the joys and contradictions that travel brings to light, illustrated by rich vignettes from the author’s own adventures on the road. An engaging, articulate and enjoyable guide
