I had various office jobs for 4 years, I was enjoying it all and still felt like travelling some more! I decided to quit and travel, becoming a sailor/backpacker/digital nomad for 1.5 years in Europe, South-Africa and Colombia, making a small living through teaching Business classes and workshops.
It was nice, and I felt like learning more about startups, SaaS and all-things Digital. In April 2014, I joined Buffer and started renting a flat in Paris, while still travelling 6 months per year. I guess that makes me a “half nomad”! 🙂
For me, a (digital) nomadic life means, to have a job or occupation allowing you, to be a remote worker and making the decision to travel/explore for most of your time 🙂 I’m writing all this, while sitting on a plane taking me to Mumbai, where I can attend a wedding and work in the same week!
