All in DIGITAL NOMAD
From what I'd heard about Pretty Pai, I kind of new I might fall in love with the place, but I didn't think it would be so instantaneous. As soon as I arrived in my bungalow (next to a rice field with a view of the mountains), I immediately tried to cancel my apartment in Chiang Maiand I'd wished that I'd brought all my possessions so I could stay longer.
In case you didn’t know, minimalism is kind of a thing these days. Just as the digital nomad movement is making waves, so is minimalism…
People seem to be catching on that material things don’t make us happy long term and we are starting to see through the cracks of the consumer driven crap we’ve been fed our entire lives. That, coupled with rising house prices… millennials are getting creative with how to live a more meaningful life… check out #vanlife for example.
You know that feeling you get when you are about to travel to somewhere completely new? That feeling of excitement, nervousness and endless possibility?
Well I’ve got that now, and I think I might be hooked on the feeling! Which is partly why I’ve decided to minimise my life into the size of a 70L backpack for an indefinite amount of time. Not an entirely easy feat I might add, but more on packing and minimalism in my next post.
