People ask me all the time if I’d still be a nomad if I had kids, or they say that it’s impossible or difficult to be a nomad if you have kids. I want to answer the question, but I think there’s something even more important to talk about in relation to this.
The short answer is that yes, I’d still be a nomad if I had kids. A bunch of people travel with their kids, my favorite example being my friend Leo who does long single-backpack trips with all six of his kids all over the world. He’s so good at it that I asked him to write a guest chapter about it in my recent travel book, Forever Nomad.
The thinking behind the question bothers me a little bit, though.
When I’m considering doing something, I give no thought to whether other people have done it or not.
