Question: Will You Ever Decide to Call a Place Home?
Answer: (Click here if you can’t see the video)
We’ve chosen to be ‘house-less’ on purpose. We love being nomadic – exploring, wandering. We love change and new adventures.
So will we ever ‘settle down’ and call a place ‘home’?
Truly, we believe that where ever we are as a family is ‘home’. The places we’ve stayed, and the houses we rent (like this one in Panajachel) have all been ‘home’ to us. We’ve discovered the adage – home is where your heart is – is definitely true.
But will we ever get a house? The answer is: yes. Under the right conditions.
We don’t currently own a house in our home country, because we couldn’t do both – have a mortgage, with all the insurance and bills, and travel. Having a house that way only became a liability – an anchor – that kept us from traveling. So we chose to travel instead.
When we can purchase land, and build a house that we own free-and-clear – a house that is actually ours and becomes an asset instead of an anchor – we’re all for it! It’s part of our long-term plan for sovereignty and becoming self-sufficient (critical, we believe, with the uncertainty of today’s economies.)
However, for us, it will still just be a ‘home base’. A place to have a garden, some chickens and rabbits, our library with our favorite books, to store some of our things – and to come back to after new travel adventures.
Where will that place be? We’ll let you know when we find it 😉
