    One thing I would advise all viewers is to avoid claiming you have no fixed address when crossing borders. Always maintain documented ties to your home country or a frivolous border guard can fuck your plans up big time.

    Hey Matt! Love you videos, you are super relatable and i love that. We share such similarities but i wanted to ask if you could make more content like what you were talking about at 3:46. We both lived in Sydney (Earlwood, actually) almost exactly this time last year. We were creating content, making our dream life and then we both had to leave due to Covid-19. Saterra had to go back to Canada and i (Dan) had to go back to the UK. This crushed us. We felt like we had to start again. Like, ALL over again... 1 year on, we are still moving forward but i also turn 30 this year and it really struck a cord with me that other people feel the same way your wife does. Stressed, anxious, why don't we have a house yet, when do we have kids, where will we live? We country hop too and this life is so new to us that it's all so exciting, we sometimes find ourselves being grounded by listening to other people opinions that don't reflect our lifestyle choice. Convention vs. 'Digitally Nomadic'? I guess what i wanted to say was, i would love to hear more about your thought on this subject. Being present, not worrying about the future, conforming to the typical. That sort of thing. We would love to meet up in Sydney, we are planning to come back as soon as the borders open for us to come. We miss it every single day. If you read this Matt, you're awesome. If you are reading this and feel the same, please bump up so we can help others. So much love! Sat & Dan

    I felt like I was so attached to items before. But after my 13 year relationship ended because he cheated on me and I had to get rid of my things and move back home. I realized I don’t even need that much as in material things. I got rid of so much and I’m still getting rid of things now and it’s been 2 years. I’m even trying to get my mom to get rid of things she’s hold on to for YEARS. She got so overwhelmed and we even got into a fight but as she started seeing that I’ve been de cluttering and our home is looking for open she’s starting to get into it. So I guess I just wanted to say your videos have been like my therapy ☺️

    So.. just something i've noticed. When you can afford to buy whatever you need. Throwing everything away is much easier, because you know you can buy it back. I know for a fact, I cannot throw away, because, if need, then no money to buy and regret is much more stress and horrible annoyance than keeping thing in closet for long time no use.

    She talked about being worried pressured to have kid and how can you have kids and no adress at the same time? There are families who travel the world full time with their kids. There's a youtube chanel of parents and their 9 kids traveling a lot. There was another family who got an rv, took their 10 kids and traveled Europe on summer. As for the age to have kids, medicine has got so good, you can have kids in your 40s, you just need more money to pay medical bills. Or you can adopt and/or foster. Really some research and watching youtube videos of even large families traveling can really open eyes to new fun advetures. Some people create this mental wall of "that's so hard to do, that's impossible, no way" that they don't even try. Once you at least think, reseach, plan and try, the wall disappears and you're left with a great feeling of "huh, wow, I can do this. This is fun!"

Our daughter is now six and she loves traveling, she has been to 7 countries already and it would have been more if covid had not happened. I also recommend travelling with a child, but it does change how you travel. Her first international flight was at 8 months old and I traveled solo with her. Baby Bjorn carrier was a life saver 👍😁

    sitting in my room that I moved into literally a month ago, looking at all the stuff I finally unpacked, and thinking about just selling it all off. is both. terrifying and tempting. (my main problem with this, I think, is that most of my stuff is thrifted, flea-market hauls, family heirlooms and hand-me-downs - so I would absolutely be unable to get it back once I got rid of it. It's not like "oh this is from Ikea so if I do notice I need it I can just rebuy it"...)

We packed the storage container to the point the door almost didn’t open. There was still stuff left and she was panicking trying to fit the rest in a bag above the car. After the entire fiasco, we’ve both agreed that if we move back we’re getting rid of everything.

We are struggling with giving up things, like even books I haven’t read yet, the only important things I’d definitely want to take, are our family pictures, and a weeks worth of cloths, I’m not sure I want to keep my smart phone! Our dogs and our kids, how freeing this could be! I’m excited to follow you and wish you much joy.
