We’ve been blogging ever since we hit the road together. We consider Technomadia.com to be our personal space and it started as a continuation of our blogs we were both keeping when we met. It was a place to share our travel stories with friends and family, and mainly keep the parents from calling every day to make sure we were still alive as we embarked on this crazy nomadic journey.
Friends started asking questions about how we stayed online, got our mail or decided where to go next. So we started writing about that sort of stuff too.
And before we knew it, we had a bunch of new friends reading along (hi!).
We sincerely thank you for spending your time and bandwidth to join along in our adventures – whether you’ve been with us from the early days, or are just tuning in. Blogging, while fun, is also a lot of effort and time consuming… and knowing it’s helping people out is what makes the time worthwhile.
As a thank you back to you, we’ve put together this quick guide to some of our more useful content.
