Join us as we explore the intriguing realm of minimalistic travel and digital nomadism with Kayla Ihrig. As someone who traded a nine-to-five job, a mortgage, and excess material possessions for the thrill of globetrotting with two backpacks and a laptop, Kayla is the perfect guide. Dive into her inspiring journey, understand the inception of digital nomadism, and discover how advancements in technology have revolutionized work and travel. This episode also offers handy tips on decluttering, disassociating from unnecessary possessions, and embracing a lifestyle where the world is your office.

Memorable Quote:

"I think that it's a lot less about travel and a lot more about the freedom to say hey, I'd like to go visit my family...So you can kind of stretch those freedoms, see what you can find. You know, it doesn't have to be exotic at all." - Kayla Ihrig

2. Advancements in technology have transformed the way we blend work and travel.
3. Letting go of emotional attachments and unnecessary possessions can be liberating.
4. Digital nomadism can be rewarding, but it's crucial to set the right expectations.
