-Created for Nomads (freedom lovers) by a Nomad in Japan-
No friends, no families…
All I had was the ability to speak Japanese…
My whole life is about moving around internationally, so the idea of having freedom was deeply ingrained in my personality since I was young. However, moving to Japan, the country I truly love, I became afraid.
The social structures are so different, people seem to have a busy life…
On top of that, what scares me the most is…
What if I cannot adapt well in the country I love?
It is like…confessing to the person you truly want to be with and being afraid of getting rejected…
However in 2019, after a series of unfortunate events happening in my life, after getting a huge depression, I finally decided to be truly free…to choose and believe in what I love. That is why I decided to be a nomad and a life free of bondages.
We move forward when we decide to.
After I made the decision and trusted the unseen, within 3 months, I soon managed to navigate through all the systems in Japan. Sometimes, to the surprise of my Japanese friends, I have luck which helped me through situations that are even HARD for Japanese!
Of course, most of the things were tested through trials and errors.
I know what’s like to live in a foreign country.
I was an immigrant to Canada, now a Canadian citizen. The experience in Canada taught me how important it is to figure out 3 things as soon as you arrive to a new country:
1) How to find a safe and affordable place to stay.
2) How to find the essential social resources like hospitals and communities.
3) Financial system.
Language is important, but it is NOT the No.1.
Based on this experience, I have lived in Australia, Japan, United States and of course, traveled to several places short-term.
Preparation is key, because it will make your life so much easier.
That is why this course is dedicated to people who are looking to have a freedom-drive lifestyle that is TOTALLY in sync with your terms. Those who love Asian cultures and want to explore this part of the world more.
WHAT THIS COURSE ISN’T
