    Ep 183 Moving to Canada with Brandon Miller

    45:36

    Raise your hand if you’ve ever said, “That’s it, I’m moving to Canada.” I’ve heard this phrase a time or two before!  If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably spent a fair amount of time thinking, daydreaming, and brainstorming about where in the world you’d like to live, get residency, and even a second passport. There are certain places that tend to come up regularly as an option for many people, but I’ll admit I’d always discounted Canada as being too complicated or something. Turns out, it might not be!  In this episode, I talk with Brandon Miller of My Second Passport and author of Second Passport: Your Guide To Have a Secure Alternative Home for You and Your Family, Just in Case…. all about what it takes to move to Canada. In this episode: Barriers that stop people from moving to Canada Reasons to consider making Canada your home What you need to know about the Canadian immigration process  Factors to consider for self-employed and digital workers  How to navigate border patrol How the immigration system works  What to know about taxes when moving to Canada   For full show notes, resources, and links go to www.nomadtopia.com/183.

    Ep 182 An Update on Nomadtopia and the Pandemic

    9:46

    It’s been a year since our Grounded Nomads series about nomads who were scrambling to get home or to find a safe place to land as the world was shutting down.  Here we are a year later, and I felt it was time for an update on what being a nomad during the pandemic has looked like. It’s different for everyone of course, but are people still creating and living their own Nomadtopia during the pandemic? For nomads, this past year brought many disruptions. Some were grounded in one place, some are just starting their journey, while others have changed how they travel to different locations all while navigating travel restrictions.  The specifics are unique, but the determination to create and live our own version of Nomadtopia remains. In this episode, I’m sharing my own updated journey and how other nomads are shifting their plans as we navigate this unique time.  In this episode: The shifts nomads have made during the pandemic Some of the disruptions nomads have experienced An update on my own Nomadtopia How the pandemic has clarified my priorities Why now is a good time to take action toward your own Nomadtopia How the Nomadtopia Collective can support your location-independent lifestyle How to share your own Nomadtopia story   For full show notes, resources, and links go to www.nomadtopia.com/182.
