Free as a Global Nomad: An Old Tradition with a Modern Twist How does it feel to be forever on the move? Who are global nomads? Why did they leave their former lives? How do they finance their travels? And, ultimately, what is the meaning of life for them? In this book our fellow global nomads, travelers who wander the world without a permanent job or home, answer these intriguing questions. They are modern-day adventurers and vagrants, no one's property. Global nomads value freedom and mastery of their own lives. Their ideas draw from the everyday life and dreams of explorers, philosophers, and vagrants, some notable pioneers including Alexander the Great, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and George Orwell. This book shows how global nomads revive the ancient ideals of a simple and beautiful life. In the process, home, nationality, freedom, and travel get a new meaning that will permanently change the way in which we perceive the world. When Paivi & Santeri met, they decided to quit their jobs and devote their time to each other and travelling. This was the beginning of a new life as global nomads in 2004. They have only one plan: no plans.

Presenting a ground-breaking study of the emerging phenomenon of location-independence, this book examines the way in which the practices of 'global nomads', who live on the road, without fixed abode, place of employment or localised circle of friends, question many of the unwritten norms and ideals that characterise settled life in societies. With the lifestyles of global nomads blurring the boundaries between travel, migration, and dwelling, Global Nomads and Extreme Mobilities draws on in-depth interviews with a worldwide group of location-independent travellers, together with virtual and instant ethnography and discourse analysis, to show how lives oriented around extreme forms of mobility offer researchers in migration, tourism and mobilities a unique opportunity for examining the complex subjectivities and power relations associated with multi-mobility. With close attention to the nationalistic, political, and travel-related attachments of global nomads and the ways in which their own representation and justification of their lifestyles and subjectivities constitute a power negotiation, the book examines 'global nomads' social and intimate relationships and the forms of exclusion and discrimination that they encounter, raising the question of whether they live inside or outside societies - and indeed, whether there can be any life outside societies. A re-assessment of much contemporary research in the fields of mobility, migration and tourism studies, Global Nomads and Extreme Mobilities will appeal to scholars across the social sciences.

There is an urgent need for new thinking - a clear mind shift - in terms of leadership and people management as the focus of world recovery switches from US/Western best practices to recovery and growth centred on developing and emerging markets. A cadre of global professional is appearing who will drive both the recovery and future growth of international organizations - The Global Nomad. The Rise of the Global Nomad explains how this new workforce is the engine room of the modern organization. Promoting recovery and driving growth by operating in the new markets. The global nomad, predominantly Generation Y, is characterised by a new set of principles and attitudes; embracing change, up for the challenge, they are not loyal to any one organization. Recognising that they are the key to unlocking the potential in these new markets, the author describes how organizations need to restructure and change their ideas to embrace the global nomad and maximise their power in the new economy.

Shelley Seale and Keith Hajovsky are self-professed world nomads, who travel just about any time and place they have the opportunity - and usually for free, or very close to it. Between the two of them, they have visited more than 50 countries and logged millions of miles. Are you tired of the conventional wisdom which says that you have to spend a lot of money to travel the world? Do you want to learn how two well-traveled vagabonds have managed to do it for decades, as well as the travel-cheap insights they have accumulated over many years of gallivanting around the globe? There are many travel resources and guidebooks out there that tell you how to travel on the cheap, how to save money, how to get the best airfares. The authors have read and used many of them, and there are lots of good ones around. How To Travel For Free (or pretty damn near it!) is different in that in these pages, Seale and Hajovsky share their own personal resources and experiences to show ways in which you can travel not just cheaply, but for free - or damn close to it! If you or someone you know wants to learn how to see and experience the world without the need to have or to spend large amounts of money like so many in the travel industry will have you believe, then buy this book now and start your own personal journey toward your dreams of independent travel freedom!

Global Nomads provides a unique introduction to the globalization of countercultures, a topic largely unknown in and outside academia. Anthony D’Andrea examines the social life of mobile expatriates who live within a global circuit of countercultural practice in paradoxical paradises. Based on nomadic fieldwork across Spain and India, the study analyzes how and why these post-metropolitan subjects reject the homeland in order to shape an alternative lifestyle. They become artists, therapists, exotic traders and bohemian workers seeking to integrate labor, mobility and spirituality within a cosmopolitan culture of expressive individualism. These countercultural formations, however, unfold under neo-liberal regimes that appropriate utopian spaces, practices and imaginaries as commodities for tourism, entertainment and media consumption. In order to understand the paradoxical globalization of countercultures, Global Nomads develops a dialogue between global and critical studies by introducing the concept of 'neo-nomadism' which seeks to overcome some of the shortcomings in studies of globalization. This book is an essential aide for undergraduate, postgraduate and research students of Sociology, Anthropology of Globalization, Cultural Studies and Tourism Studies.

The Global Nomad Club Global nomads choose to move from one temporary urban residence to another, exploring alternative narratives and experience of home. As a result, they often find themselves at the intersection of the socioeconomic transformation of contemporary societies and the globalization of human lives. It is at this crossroad that we meet Leya, a 20-something woman claiming identity, happiness and belonging throughout her global journey. She lives as an exchange student in Bangkok and shares her adventures with her sister through email. Eventually, she creates the Global Nomad Club, a blog through which she explores the globalization of identity, love and urban spaces. The blog connects her with a physically dispersed community of fellow global nomads, transcending and expanding her own experience. Eventually, she trades Bangkok for Beijing, Barcelona and finally, San Francisco, going through lovers and careers as she struggles to find her own identity and place in the world.
