A chronicle of our journey as nomadic freelancers.


Currently exploring



Ensconced in rural Portugal as house sitters, we have 12 dogs and an aviary of endangered birds under our care. While this is our latest venture to explore a new country and learning about conservation, our lifestyle is ever-evolving.

Our journey together began on a chance camping trip to an off-grid island off the coast of Vancouver, where we met some locals and got a glimpse into a truly unique lifestyle. With a few more ‘casual’ dates to BC’s mountain huts, Squamish’s boulder fields, and Washington rugged coast under our belts, we decided to give long distance a go.

Luke worked for an impact investing company in Singapore while Trixie worked in Vancouver’s film industry. After a short stint in Vancouver together, we quit our jobs, packed our bags, and set out on a much greater adventure — life on the open road. We haven’t been home since.

We’ve been exploring alternative ways of living around the world. Although we are new to the digital nomad lifestyle, we want to share our adventure. We hope you enjoy journeying with us!



has lived in the Netherlands, the Middle East, and Texas. Belonging to many hometowns has cultivated his nomadic lifestyle.

Luke is a freelance writer & editor with a master’s degree in Environmental Studies and Sustainability from Lund University in Sweden. He has worked in Calgary, Vancouver & Singapore.

He is most content when summiting a tough hike, nervously topping out on a climbing route, sweating profusely from a spicy curry, or immersing himself in a good non-fiction read.


Trixie Pacis

was born in Manila and raised in Vancouver. She moved to Los Angeles with a Lit & Poetry degree, wrote for Los Angeles Magazine, and stumbled into the world of film.

Trixie is now a freelance screenwriter, copywriter, and Global Correspondent at Mapped with a feature film and novel in development.

She probably climbs, surfs, works from coffee shops, and says dude more than the average young professional… but hey, at least she tries.
