Welcome! We’re Brooke & Buddy!

Previous Digital Nomads  | Forever Travelers | Experts at Just Winging It

In 2017, we quit our office jobs and set off on an often-challenging, always-interesting adventure to find a new life path. After some trial and error (including a year in an RV), we enjoyed international pet sitting for about three years as digital nomads. Now we live full-time in Hawaii where we volunteer, plan future travels, and pet sit locally.

We’re pretty transparent around here and enjoy sharing our lessons learned when it comes to travel, the nomad life, and house sitting. Of course, we share about all the awesome destinations we visit and unique experiences we have as well.

Come trail away (and likely get lost) with us!
