Background

Where do you live?

This should be a straightforward question, but for other nomads like myself with a sense of wanderlust, it’s never a straightforward response. Many of us live in multiple locations, moving from place to place without time to secure a permanent address. Essentially we’re ‘living’ wherever we are in that moment.

My favourite definition of the word ‘address’ is from Wikipedia: “A code and abstract concept expressing a location on the Earth’s surface.” It is an abstract concept to me, I’m glad I’m not the only one.

I’ve always strived to see and experience as much of the world in the short timeframe we’ve been given. For this reason I find it hard to sit still in a single location for too long. Freedom to roam the Earth is my greatest gift in life, and I plan to make good use of it.

Between April – October 2013 I hiked from Mexico to Canada along the Pacific Crest Trail, 2,663 miles through California, Oregon and Washington. I started serialnomad.com to continue the journey I began on my www.mexicotocanada2013.com blog.

  1. Bonjour Rozanne. I hope you are well. I was reading (binge reading to be correct) your PCT journal earlier this Summer. I was unemployed and feeling quite down then and found you very uplifting. Your journey has been a great inspiration to pursue my dreams and follow my heart (which most of the time leads me to a mountain or a lake). Not too long ago, I was finally was able to get the job I wanted when I first moved here in BC. A few days ago, I went back to your journal to find info about your PCT section in Oregon and found out about serialnomad, I was so happy! I had no idea you were in this part of the world nowadays. I believe we might be colleagues…(I’m at the service centre). Small world. Thank you for sharing your wisdom!

    1. Geez, small world indeed! Thanks for sharing your story Maude, I’m really glad you’ve been inspired to pursue your dreams!! Especially if they involve the outdoors!! I’m also glad you landed the job you wanted in this great part of the world!! The service centre is better for you being there! Hope our paths cross soon! Rozanne

    1. Hey thanks so much for your kind feedback, I really appreciate it! I’m also glad you appreciate my sense of humour! 🙂

  2. Roz, I am in Brisbane and did the Appalachian Trail in 2016 as a thru-hike and want to do the PCT in 2018 … I would love to get some advice off you … are you on facebook or do you have an e-mail address …
