Nora sold everything she owned (including a busy financial planning practice) in Canada in 2006 to embrace her dreams of travelling the world. She has been on the road ever since, travelling to and living in over 50 countries. In her 10+ years of full-time travel, she has learned how to travel sustainably – not only environmentally and ethically but also financially, and she teaches people how to travel the world in a sustainable way on her website The Professional Hobo.
As a freelance writer, blogger, author, and vlogger, and one of the longest-standing travel bloggers in the industry, Nora tells engaging and thoughtful stories of what it is like to immerse in different societies and cultures around the world. She is a founding member and Treasurer of the Professional Travel Bloggers Association, and has worked with PR firms and travel providers on unconventional campaigns that engage users on a different level through her blog, social media, videos, and other publications.
