↟ Break Away Tale NR 212 // @thrivingintiedye

Hi! My name is Erica and I’ve been on a nomadic journey with my boyfriend Tim and our dog Suzy!⠀

A year and a half ago, we decided that the normal 9-5 life wasn’t working for us and wanted to hit the road to see what else life had to offer. So we bought a 1985 Toyota motorhome and started renovating until she was ready to hit the road.⠀

We left our Connecticut home in June and set out to travel around the United States for 6 months. During that time, we visited 30 states and 13 national parks. We met hundreds of interesting travelers, and caught all the live music we could possibly find. Every day was a new adventure, and after 20,000 miles of travel - we can’t imagine continuing to live a life that doesn’t involve constant exploration and growth. ⠀

As planned, we returned home in December to find jobs and replenish our bank accounts. However, our original plan to resume our normal lives has been trumped by our desire to be on the road. We’re still figuring out what that looks like and how to travel sustainably long term, but we have a feeling that 2019 will be the year we build our forever rolling-home!
