Celebrating three year Nomadic Anniversary

I can’t believe we have traveled for over three years, and we are celebrating our third Nomadic Anniversary, man time has flown by.

Drake was actually fired two weeks before his discovery (it took 2 weeks for the letter to arrive) and Continue reading

Our tour began with a five minute movie that explained the Continue reading
