“I don’t regret anything in life, honestly. I believe it’s where we’re supposed to be. Every bad thing that’s happened…there’s nothing to regret. It’s just a waste of time.” ~ Sherry Ott
Today’s conversation is with Sherry Ott.
Sherry is a long-term traveler, a blogger and a photographer. As she says, her one goal in life is to make you wish you were somewhere else.
Over 11 years, she’s lived in Vietnam, hiked the Annapurna Circuit with her dad, drove 10,000 miles from London to Mongolia in the Mongol Rally, she’s walked across Spain on the Camino de Santiago, kayaked in Antarctica, and drove an auto rickshaw across India for charity.
When we spoke last year, she was in Denver checking it out and considering making it her home base, which she subsequently did. She is still seeking epic adventures to intriguing places in order to challenge herself and inspire people to overcome their fears and reap the benefits of travel but she now does this from Colorado where she now explores the mountains and fosters kittens.
She’s got a pretty big following so you might already know her but if not, she writes about her travel lifestyle and her around the world adventures on Ottsworld.com and her social media channels.
In this conversation, we talked about what it was like for her to take a “career break” thinking that she was going to travel for a year which then turned into more than a decade. Along the way she turned those travels into a lifestyle and into work as a digital nomad.
Although it sounds quite sexy, she admits there is downside to being on the road for so long including the stress of having to make so many logistical plans and figuring out where she’s going to sleep every night. Not to mention the loneliness that comes with it.
We also talk about how the tools and technology have changed over the years and how they’ve made being a digital nomad possible.
Sherry shares some great insight into her lifestyle and I know you’re going to love this conversation!
