Vagabonding is my lifestyle and profession.
I don’t have a “nine-to-five” schedule or am I tied to a central location. My daily life is erratic but controlled and I’m completely location independent.
A variant of a modern nomadic lifestyle.
This doesn’t mean vagabonding is a purely hedonistic existence, however. We work and have downtime like a “normal” lifestyle but it’s approached in a different manner with different priorities.
Vagabond’s value the experiences of the world and pursuit of self enlightenment over methods of acquiring money that take up a majority of our life times. Furthermore, as a necessity, we have jobs that allow us to work from anywhere in the world (e.g., contractor, writer, designer, trader, consultant, artist and in some cases, travel itself).
The fact remains, work is not the most important aspect of our being. Our lives don’t revolve around work but we do revolve around the the world.
This vagabonding philosophy, freedom and flexibility let’s us pursue our passion for travel and exploration as well as giving us more time for other things beyond work, all the while being financially efficient and secure.
So in effect, a vagabond has more potential to enjoy the days of the week like it’s a Saturday.
