Embracing the Nomadic Lifestyle: A Conversation with Megan

In the latest episode of our podcast, we had the pleasure of interviewing Megan, a remarkable parent who embarked on an extraordinary journey as a digital nomad. Megan shared insights into her unique lifestyle, shedding light on the concept of a family gap year and the challenges and joys that come with it. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the fascinating details of Megan’s interview and explore the world of being a digital nomad.

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.”

The Nomadic Beginnings:

The conversation began with Lindsay, the host, welcoming Megan and inquiring about her current location. Megan, who was previously a full-time traveler and self-proclaimed digital nomad, revealed that she had settled down in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, making it her forever home. The contrast in temperature between Myrtle Beach and Canada added an interesting dimension to the conversation, setting the stage for a captivating discussion.

Defining the Digital Nomad Lifestyle:

As Lindsay delved into Megan’s background, she touched upon Megan’s self-proclaimed title of being a digital nomad. For the benefit of the listeners, Lindsay asked Megan to provide a rundown of what being a digital nomad entails and to elaborate on the unique lifestyle she had embraced.

Megan explained that her journey as a digital nomad began in 2018, a time when the term was gaining popularity. She clarified that the term “digital nomad” refers to individuals who have the flexibility to work remotely and choose to live and work from different locations around the world. Megan also introduced another term, the “family gap year,” which involves families taking a year off, typically for travel. This concept, too, gained prominence in recent years, especially during the pandemic when remote work became a norm.

The Evolution of the Nomadic Lifestyle:

Megan shared her personal experience, highlighting that her family’s decision to become digital nomads was driven by a desire to break free from a hectic and overwhelming schedule. Originally based in Arizona, where her husband was a school teacher, Megan revealed that their lives were filled with activities and commitments related to their four children, who were actively involved in music and theater.

The Turning Point:

The turning point for Megan’s family came when they realized that despite enjoying the activities they had chosen, they were overwhelmed and miserable. The constant scheduling left them craving a change, prompting them to reevaluate their priorities and lifestyle choices. The initial focus was on traveling, and the decision to homeschool their children came as a secondary consideration.


Megan’s interview provided a fascinating glimpse into the world of digital nomadism and the evolving concept of a family gap year. Her journey from a packed schedule in Arizona to embracing a nomadic lifestyle serves as an inspiration for those seeking a change in their lives. As remote work continues to gain traction, Megan’s story reminds us of the possibilities that open up when we break free from the conventional and embrace a more flexible and fulfilling way of living.
