Journey of a digital nomad

Journey of a digital nomad
By April Kosky

<p>Referring to herself as a ‘digital nomad’, Charli Moore has no set end date to her trip, and is wandering the globe with a camera since 2010. That is when she decided to quit her job to “live a life less ordinary”. She has been travelling the world ever since. Of course, she narrates every step of her incredible journey on her blog <a href=" https://wanderlusters.com/ "><strong>Wanderlusters</strong></a>. We spoke to the professional wanderer about the perks of the “job” and the luggage essentials every traveller needs.</p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/37/62/376233/640x640_bonus-charli-cropover-barbados.jpg" alt="" /> <br /> <em>Charli at Crop Over’s Grand Kadooment IG @WanderlustersUK</em></p> <p><strong>Where do you go when you need to relax?</strong></p> <p>“I retreat to the nearest green space. I grew up in the country and I’ve never really felt 100 per cent at home in a city. Wherever I am in the world, when I need some ‘me time’, I head outside and make the most of whatever natural environment I can find!”</p> <p><strong>What inspired you to become a travel blogger?</strong></p> <p>“A love of travel and a desire to maintain the experience I was enjoying on my post-Uni gap year. I left London to travel on the basis that 18 months later I’d return, but towards the end of my trip I started to blog in an effort to earn enough money to keep my dream of travel alive.”</p> <p><strong>What is your favourite hotel and why?</strong></p> <p>“I’m in love with the <a href=" http://www.capellahotels.com/saintlucia/ "><strong>Marigot Bay Resort & Marina</strong></a> in St Lucia. It’s a five-star Capella property and it sits aside one of the most beautiful bays in the Caribbean. There are opportunities to hike, sail, and snorkel all within a few minutes of the suites, which is ideal for an active traveller like me!”</p> <p><strong>What is your favourite place to take a photograph?</strong></p> <p>“At a lookout. There’s something really special about seeing a landscape stretching out in front of you: Especially when there’s a coastline involved! Some of my favourite travel photographs are of vast sweeping shores or green rolling hills, all taken from a hiking trail lookout!”</p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/37/62/376233/640x640_bonus-charli-heli-queenstown.jpg" alt="" /> <br /> <em>Flying High Over The Divide</em></p> <p><strong>What is one destination you will never grow bored of and why?</strong></p> <p>“I don’t think I’ll ever grow tired of the Caribbean. I found myself in Barbados by chance a little over three years ago and I’ve been fortunate enough to spend a lot of time on St Kitts & Nevis, Antigua, and St Lucia since then. I think it’s the relaxed outlook on life and the continuous supply of liquid sunshine that has captivated me!”</p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/37/62/376233/1024x684_bonus-charli-night-market-melbourne-1024x684.jpg" alt="" /> <br /> <em>Exploring the Victoria Night Market in Melbourne, Australia</em></p> <p><strong>What are three key things you always have in your luggage?</strong></p> <p>“I never travel without my camera, my trail running shoes, and a snorkel and mask. I just can’t imagine not having the opportunity to explore a destination’s marine world too!”</p>
