If you look back at your digital nomad life, would you change anything on your path?

Answered by Patrick Farrell, photographer and software engineer

I'm not sure, each thing has taught me so much. The biggest thing that comes to mind is a girlfriend I broke up with to start the nomadic life. I guess I would have tried to bring her into this lifestyle, but I never felt like she wanted it.

And since it wasn't a Fuck Yes we are going to grow and build our lives together, it ended up being a Fuck No. When it comes to relationships, I suggest you read Mark Manson's article about Fuck Yes.

I still think I could have done something different there, but that painful experience where I wanted her back shortly after I left taught me so much and quite often we learn much better from pain than from success.
