For a relatively small monthly fee (or pay as you go), Boingo claim to provide wifi hotspots in over one million places right across the globe.

La Bella Vista Restaurant in St Leonard’s On Sea, East Sussex

La Bella Vista Restaurant overlooking the English Channel in St Leonards On Sea has become my home/office away from home.  I will add information and commentary later – wanted to at least upload the photos now…                   

Ye Auld Shebeen Irish Pub

In Ireland, a ‘shebeen’ was a late-night speakeasy, often of ill-repute ~ however this glorious gem in Whippany, New Jersey is anything but! When I’m in the area, this is one of my all-time favorite places to live the laptop-lifestyle ~ curl up, work, drink, chat… (apart from taking your life in your own hands as … Read more

Wifi Booster – How to extend wifi range when travelling

What is a Wifi Booster? You’ve been there…  That place – be it hotel, house, office or hotspot – where the wifi signal is so weak that your connection goes on and off with frustrating regularity, or perhaps it stays connected but takes seemingly forever to download those important files… With all the elements that can … Read more

Who is the Luxurious Nomad?

Hello!  I am Leigh St John – my friends call me Bella – and I am an author, entrepreneur, coach, red wine enthusiast, self-confessed geek, lover of all things Victorian and steampunk, and Luxurious Nomad!

I am originally from Australia (although I now have no connection to the country apart from a passport with a kangaroo on the front) and did not even catch the travel bug until I was in my 30s.  After exploring much of ‘down under’ and parts of New Zealand, I then travelled through quite a bit of Asia, lived almost 10 years in the USA (spent significant time in 42 states – all by road), several trips to Canada (including the Winter Olympics) and now off exploring amazing places in the UK and Europe.

I have managed to create a dream life of luxury that does not cost a fortune (and in some instances is actually cheaper!), allows me to live a ‘laptop lifestyle’ (aka working from my computer in exotic locations), enjoy good red wine (a must!), meet interesting people, explore fascinating places…

No nine-to-five, no mortgage, no hectic schedules…  Do I work?  Yes, but when you are doing it beside a waterfall because that is where you choose to work for the day, or in a quaint Irish pub another day… it is amazing how much FUN your work can be!

Join me and learn how you, too, can live the life of a Luxurious Nomad…

…and I am now in my 50s (the photo above was taken near the end of 2016, a few weeks before my 50th birthday)…  Despite living with mobility issues, MS and Lupus among other physical challenges, I think I am holding up reasonably well for my age (just don’t look too closely!  LOL!…  Must be all the red wine antioxidants!)

 

 

Join me for a glass of red wine and a fireside chat…

 I’m currently exploring the south of England, so if you’re nearby, drop me a line!
