A traveler embarks on a journey both physically and spiritually. Whenever you contracted the travel bug, you decided to make traveling and exploring our world your mission. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced traveler, we all know it isn't easy. Sometimes it's scary to travel to another country alone, to try a new food, to not know the language and be completely lost.
The story behind Spiritual Nomad started long before I could remember but on my first solo trip to Switzerland in 2014 solidified my idea. I moved to Switzerland to live and work. I had a difficult time integrating into a new culture, trying to fit in with the group of people I haven’t seen in over six years and being so far away from home. I felt like because I was traveling the world and staying in beautiful places I couldn’t complain. No one seemed to understand especially my friends and family back home. After a few months of trying to make it work, I decided to head off to Italy to try again.
I was sexually assaulted in Italy which kind of threw my world upside down. To add more fuel to the fire, misinterpretations led me to a work/live exchange for free at my new place in Italy. My funds were running low and I didn’t know what to do. I reluctantly chose to come home. I felt like a failure for “quitting” my dream to travel and live around the world.
Looking back now, I wish I had reached out to someone to comfort me. I wanted a friendly face, someone I could talk to without judgment or explanation and be accepted with love. I came up with the idea to make tank tops for Spiritual Nomad. Plus they’re travel friendly.
Let me explain. The idea is for you to buy two shirts; one for yourself and the other to give to a friend; now you know you’re not alone. If you ever see anyone with a Spiritual Nomad shirt or product, you’ll know you both are on the same page, like an friendly ally you can reach out to; a fellow traveler who gets it.
A Spiritual Nomad is a life choice and it may not necessarily mean traveling for you. It's any journey you are on. A nomad by definition is a person who does not stay long in the same place. Traveler or not, as people we are constantly evolving. Everything around is always changing whether you want to be aware of it or not.
Committing to be a Spiritual Nomad means accepting the adventurous journey with all it’s bumps in the road and learning not to be afraid when shit gets uncomfortable.
We are not naive to the fact we’re human. We have our days of utter doubt and we allow those times to take us down but only for a moment in order to get back up.
If you vow to being a Spiritual Nomad, I want you to carry some of that fearlessness with you wherever you go. I want to remind you of the journey you’re on and the many adventures you will seek. And no matter how hard it may get, know you’re apart of a global tribe of people who are on the journey just like you who are here to support you.
