The last time Nathan Buchan was spotted out and about at The Mount was back in summer. This local boy is now a full-time traveller.

Ask any twenty-something influencer out there what does he do for living, and you’ll hear “travelling”. But while most of them prefer to keep the path to living the dream a secret (“I was honest and shared my passion” is nowhere near a proper business plan, is it?), Nathan Buchan doesn’t mind going back to where it all begun.

“I never thought ‘screw this I want to be a travel blogger’,” – says the 26-year-old traveller. What he did know for sure, was that being a plumber for the rest of his life was definitely not something he was overly excited about.

Nate’s transformation into a blogger definitely wasn’t a spur of the moment thing. After setting up his goals (being his own boss, working online, travel more), he worked his butt off to make this happen: saving money, launching his blog and enrolling into all the courses to kick start the digital career he found.

Check out his video “How I Afford To Travel Full-Time”, that went viral, inspiring others to get up and go!

Today Nate and his girlfriend Hannah (@intrepidintrovert) explore the world and share their tips on the best destinations in funny videos and beautiful photos. Definitely a couple to keep on eye on!
