My mission for this blog is for it to evolve into a useful resource and forum for downshifters, digital nomads and simple living enthusiasts.

I’m not sure which category I fit into yet.  I was pondering escaping to Betty’s Bay near Cape Town to downshift and relax after my anxious life in corporate. But 39 is probably a bit early for downshifting. I’m sure most downshifters are a bit older than me, empty nesters and looking for semi-retirement and something stress-free and fun to work on part-time.

Also, I’d imagine being a digital nomad is not that easy if you have kids of a school going age. Unless you want to home school on the road. Maybe touring in an RV with the kids is possible? So, I’m picturing the digital nomads out there to be younger (pre-children & single) and more tech savvy than me.

The great thing about having a forum like is to share tips and ideas. From escaping corporate, enjoying work-life balance, working remotely and the best exotic nomad cities to visit or live in; let’s explore the answers together.
