What is Humbly Nomadic & Why Offer The Lowest Travel Prices?
We are a nomadic couple who opened a full service travel agency and FREE travel club as well as other online business that suit our passions and lifestyle. Humbly Nomadic offers guaranteed lowest travel prices because we want to share our passion of world travel and inspire people to see the world. Our travel services are FREE with no added booking fees, and we can often beat the big online booking engine prices by as much as 80%.
We try to provide as many free services to our followers as possible. To make our nomadic lifestyle possible we make money while traveling often by saving or making money for others. We make money from our travel agency, blogging, affiliate marketing, investing & trading, e-commerce drop-shipping, and multiple streams of income from opportunities that come our way. It’s our belief that mindset along with passion and persistence are key to finding a profitable path to happiness.

Affiliate Marketing Is A Great Way To Make Money While Traveling
Affiliate marketing is one of the best ways to make a passive income via a blog or other website. Basically when somebody clicks on a link or advertisement on a website and drives web traffic to another website, they get a small kickback if that person buys something. For example, eBay or Amazon Shopping is one of the best free ways to support humbly nomadic. Clicking on these links below will bring you to eBay or Amazon. You still pay the same price as if you went to these sites directly, however, we may get a small commission for referring the traffic if you go from our website! That is one of the ways bloggers monetize their content.
Meet The Humbly Nomadic Tribe
Our humbly nomadic tribe consists of my wife (Shawna), myself (Allan) and our dog Ramsey. We are two average people with an above average dog who decided in 2017 that we wanted to start living extraordinary lives. We made a conscious decision to leave the traditional “working life” behind to pursue a nomadic lifestyle. We decided to pursue our dreams of traveling the world while helping others along the way.
This requires us to live a bit of a minimalist lifestyle in order to afford the adventures we seek. However, we truly value experiences over possessions so it is ultimately a blessing more than sacrifice. We believe that anyone, regardless of circumstances, can find a way to live their own best life given the proper mindset, the proper education, and the level of passion required to fuel action steps towards the most fulfilling life possible.
How We Came To Be
Shawna and I got together back in 2006 and never looked back. We are both from small towns in southern Wisconsin. We actually met previously a few times as acquaintances through mutual friends, but never exchanged more than a few words. I moved to Arizona in my early 20’s, and then came back to Wisconsin in 2006 when my father was dying. That’s when Shawna and I truly shared more than a few minutes together. We have been a team ever since. After a few years in Wisconsin, we decided to flee the freezing cold and move to Arizona. That is where we made our home until deciding to sell everything in 2017 in pursuit of our humbly nomadic lifestyle.
Ramsey, our 12-year-old boxer, came into the picture about a year after getting to Arizona. We were literally looking specifically at boxers on craigslist.org one morning when our refrigerator broke. I went to get a replacement part for the refrigerator, and as I was paying for the part the cashier asks if I know of anyone looking for a boxer free to a good home. Sometimes the universe is like magic! He has been the most amazing dog, everyone loves him, and he thinks he is a celebrity. He loves Ol’ Roy dog biscuits which we call “cookies”, Ol’ Roy dog food, pig ears, people’s food with no vegetables, sleeping, parks, and walks. He hates almost all vegetables, swimming, and baths. So far he really enjoys his nomadic life!
So far we do not have any children other than Ramsey. However, our nomadic lifestyle change has reinforced our relationship making it stronger than ever, and we hope to be blessed with our first human child in the near future. It is our belief that a nomadic & entrepreneurial lifestyle of world travel will be an excellent way to raise an open thinking child rich with real-world problem-solving skills.
The Past 10 Years
We spent the last 10 years in Arizona building the life we thought we wanted, and we did a pretty good job of it. We took turns putting each other through school, and then we both built decent careers. Shawna was saving lives as a dialysis technician. I worked as an IT tech and operations manager in financial services marketing. We started to build the typical American dream with the house, cars, motorcycles, boat, and we would vacation as much as our jobs would allow. It seemed near perfect from the outside looking in, except we were both working crazy hours. The stress of the grind was reaching unhealthy levels.
We realized we barely even had the time to enjoy the superficial possessions we had acquired. Then we started questioning the true value, costs,
For me, this came down to quitting my current career to either start a brewery or do something travel related. I was too stressed out to start a brewery despite my skill and passion for home brewing. Also, Shawna was less than passionate about the brewery idea, but she does share the travel bug with me. This is what led to our new life and the founding of A & S Ventures LLC, the Humbly Nomadic blog, and our non-profit charity foundation.
We are not super wealthy, and in fact, we both come from average, middle-class, Midwest families. Nobody ever gave us anything on a silver platter. When we got together back in 2006 we lived paycheck to paycheck and didn’t own anything except clothes and a 1995 Buick. We both still “work”, but it is entirely on our terms. Now we only do what we love and want to do. Do what you love and you never work a day in your life, right?
We made the decision to pursue a nomadic lifestyle in October 2017. It took almost a full year to sell everything and quit our jobs to become full-time digital nomads. Believe me, it has not all been gumdrops and jelly beans; we have had plenty of struggles, but that’s life. The only things we own now are a truck, travel trailer, and basic living & business necessities. Once we are done with the travel trailer portion of our travels, we will be selling both the truck and trailer to set out to a new continent with nothing more than a few bags of luggage. We are happy to share our nomadic life with the world, and hope to inspire you to live your best life if you are not already doing so!
We are currently enjoying a nomadic RV life when we are not on an international trip or resort condo vacation. In fact, we have been traveling the country looking at RV parks for sale as we are anticipating purchasing a campground to turn it into a homestead & home-base of operations. We would entertain the idea of a like-minded business partner couple in this venture, so feel free to contact us for details if interested.
It is our mission to live the happiest, most fulfilling lives we can, and to help anyone interested do likewise. By sharing great content from our travel adventures around the world, we strive to educate and inspire others to pursue their own passions to the fullest extent. It is our goal to teach people how to turn their purest passions into profits. At the same time, we believe in giving back, and so we founded our own Humble Deeds Charitable Foundation. We also try to find volunteer activities as we travel, and so we make it a point to find time for charitable acts or “Humble Deeds” as we call them.
