A chronicle of our life as nomadic freelancers
and the fine folk we meet on the open road.


Currently exploring



Currently living in rural Portugal as house sitters with 12 dogs and an aviary of rare and endangered birds under our care. This is our current means of exploring a new country and learning about conservation in a flexible way, but our lifestyle is ever-evolving.

Our journey together began on an off-grid island off the coast of Vancouver. Our paths crossed on a weekend spent roughing it and tending to marijuana plants. With a few adventures 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 at Vancouver’s Drive Films. After a short stint in Vancouver together, we quit our jobs, packed our bags, and set out on a much greater adventure — that of life on the open road.

We’ve been exploring alternative ways of living ever since. Although we are new to the digital nomad lifestyle, we want to show that is not only doable but rewarding.

We care about our planet and do our best to strike a balance between travel and sustainable living. We hope to share the places and people we encounter along the way and offer helpful tips on traveling mindfully.



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

Luke is a freelance editor & proofreader 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.
