Backtracking to Brno: How We Became Digital Nomads
It makes sense, considering we began our blog after we’d already begun our journey.
Brno, for those of you that don’t know, is the second-largest city in the CZ. It’s roughly the size of Portland, and it was a place I called home for years. Some of the most gorgeous people I know live there.
We bonded over their short stay in Brno, stayed in touch while they went on in their travels. Then I got a text: look outside. I opened my front door, and there was Armando, in true Hollywood fashion, waiting across the street in the lamplight.
We became good friends and stayed in touch over the years, up until last spring. I got a text: look out your window. I ran to the balcony, and there was Armando looking up at me from the street.
From that point on, we were- have been- together. We both wanted to travel, to explore the world and explore our artistic possibilities, we just weren’t sure how. Backpacking was one option. Then, when he was in Prague, he came up with the solution of getting a van.
Where there’s an Italian will, there’s a way. And taking chances can be the best lifely choice you’ll ever make.
I have no regrets about taking that leap of faith that yes, we could travel and find our independent, artistic ways– thus finding creative happiness. And finding it together. It’s by no means been easy or stress-free. But the joys I’ve unearthed and am constantly discovering far outweigh the badnesses.
Brno will always have a special place in my heart for many googobs of reasons. One of the main ones? Introducing us to our unforgettable past, our unexpected nows and atypical (but certainly adventurous) future.
Sounds like a movie script to a wonderful love story…. <3
Hi Krisstan, that’s lovely of you to say. 🙂 I swear sometimes it feels like it is, it’s pretty unbelievable.
