Nora Dunn (aka The Professional Hobo is one of the original Digital Nomads and Lifestyle Travel Bloggers, having started her full-time travel lifestyle in 2006 and traveled full-time for 12 years. (She has a home base in Toronto now, and continues to travel on short and long trips – pandemics notwithstanding).
Specializing in slow travel, she has lived in and traveled through over 60 countries while working remotely. She combines her expertise as a former Certified Financial Planner with her lifestyle travel experience, to teach people how to travel full-time in a financially sustainable way.
Nora’s travel experiences range from sublime to absurd to downright terrifying. She survived 3 natural disasters and got 3 tropical diseases, was robbed twice, and had 1 near-fatal accident.
On the brighter side, she accidentally started an international NGO, had a kangaroo fall in love with her and follow her around for 6 months, apprenticed with a shaman in Peru for 2 years, rode 25,000kms of trains in 30 days straight from Lisbon to Saigon, and saved over $100k getting free accommodation around the world in 5 different ways.
Now, Nora is paying it forward. She gives people confidence to travel long-term by helping them set everything up in the best possible way for them – from finances to career to logistics and beyond. She does this with instructional and inspirational content on her website, a video interview series on YouTube, personal coaching services, books, speaking, and more.
