Less is more. That's probably the only thing the diffrent types minimalists has in common. Minimalism is a word that's been thrown around in alls sorts of contexts. But basically it's all about be MORE with LESS. Focus on the important aspects of life. What are your top priorities?
Minimalism is in everything. Minimalist design, minimalist interior, minimalist homes, minimalist clothes. But there is a group of minimalist that has been around since the beginning, travelers!
A few weeks back we published a post, The Adventure Travel Story, we interviewed more than 20 travelers to find out more how travelling has impacted their lives. Interesting stories, as most of them are actually embracing a minimalist lifestyle because of travel. The more they explored - The less they needed.
In order to get your head around it, we made a beginner's guide to get you started.
We find this very entertainingly accurate so we decided to share it (6 Types of Minimalists by Taryn Williford)
The best thing with being location independent doesn't necessarily has the amount of travelling, instead it's the ability to find other opportunities far outside your territory. We have listed a few jobs you can do without being tide-up to a specific place:
Web Developer - By far the best job for a location-independent lifestyle. It's one of the most sought after careers, so companies give their developers a great deal of flexibility and the salary is really good.
Graphic Designer - Every company wants to invest in improving its image and brand were graphic design is a big part of it. And all you need is your laptop and creativity.
Content Creator - Work can be writing blog posts or creating copy content for social media or ads. It's not difficult to become a freelance writer, but it takes a creative mind and an ability to create quality content.
Online Marketing Specialist - The work ranges from optimizing websites for search engines (SEO) to planning and executing all sorts of marketing campaigns.
Professional Photographer - The competition is tough. You have to be really good and have a clear niche. Check out 101 Adventure Photographers to Watch for inspiration.
A minimalist approach will keep you lighter and more mobile on your adventure. You should try it next time.
Most important: Use a pack list and pack in advance.
Backpack (cary-on size)If you're going to be traveling around a backpack is a far better alternative then luggage on wheels. Just imagine the hazel carry that luggage around on dirt-roads, beaches and stairs.Small DaypackWhen traveling/flying - for your most valuable belongings and easy to reach, such as passport, laptop, camera, headphones and other personal items. When exploring/sightseeing - bring only the stuff you need.
Packing Cubes - Keep your backpack organized. Super easy to pack/unpack, you'll never experience a mess of clothes again.Sarong - Multiple-purpose "accessory". It can be used to give shade, as a towel, as a bag, as a blanket and much more.

Travelling is exciting - new experiences open up new horizons and sometimes make such an impact that entirely changes the way the traveller thinks about the world. It can be the best way to eliminate “prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness” as Mark Twain put it. But there is a catch!
Have you ever thought about the carbon footprint you leave behind when you travel?
Jumbo Mountain has a story, a tale to tell. Somewhat unknown to us in Europe, but for the locals of Jumbo glacier and those living in the area, the question of this "resort" no matter what side you are on, is everything. The development plans for this resort for some mean innovation, jobs and expansion and for other it means the destruction of the environment and native land. Thrillism wants to bring the story from both sides to you.
If you spend any time it the backcountry, anywhere in the world, skiing, hiking, climbing etc then you need to read this article.
That's why we wanted to touch base (pun intended) with the incredible folks at Air Zermatt, where their unmissable red helicopters are flown over our favourite mountain with a knowing and watchful eye, leading us to a massive amount of curiosity about the work they do and how meaningful it is to all of us who are passionate about the mountains.
