Nora Dunn (aka The Professional Hobo) is one of the original Digital Nomads and Lifestyle Travel Bloggers, having started her full-time travel lifestyle and career as a content creator in 2006.
Specializing in slow travel, she has lived in and traveled through over 70 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 long-term 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, YouTube channel, personal consulting services, books, speaking, and more.
Nora has been featured in print, on television, radio, podcasts, and online on outlets like Forbes, Condé Nast Traveler, Business Insider, Lonely Planet, and Oprah.
