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 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 much 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 have just turned 50! (the photo above was taken only a couple of months before my birthday)… 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!)
Stay tuned for lots of fabulous events – including, despite the fact that I have MS, Lupus and some other mobility & health issues, I am climbing Mt Kilimanjaro in 2017 – seriously! (that’s the world’s tallest free-standing mountain, in case you were wondering…)
