Finding travel, fun, and adventure in a 9-to-5 life.

Live, Wander, Play

Chronicles of a part-time nomad

“Not all those who wander are lost”

– J.R.R Tolkien

Hello! I’m Vivian. I’m a resident of beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, in Canada.

I adore travel and have had the privilege of having travelled to 53 countries so far. I feel most happy on the go, moving from one place to another and learning ever more about the world around me, but I’m not a full-time traveller. I have a job like most of you, and all the 9-to-5 obligations that come with it. I do believe that life is for living however, and I’ve made it my life’s mission to fit as much travel and adventure while building a career, managing finances, and planning for the future while still living in the moment.

No one knows how many days we’re going to be allocated in life. I’m hoping this blog serves as a source of inspiration to other busy individuals to prioritize enjoyment of life, travel and adventure, as much as they prioritize their other responsibilities.

Live, Wander, Play
