How do you fund dreams such as travelling the world? Inspired with wanderlust, Jenna Spesard built a Tiny House with her partner, they spent a year towing it throughout America together. It’s now in a fixed location but still helps her travel internationally for 3 months of the year, as it saves her so much money. She is pursuing her goal of visiting 5 new countries each year.
“I don’t work for my house – it works for me” she says.
“Not too long ago, I was working a job I hated, just to pay the rent. I felt stuck and miserable. Then, one day, I decided to change my life. Today I live simply, in a Tiny House, so that I can travel the world for part of the year!”
Jenna blogs at “Tiny House, Giant Journey”. http://tinyhousegiantjourney.com/ There, she talks about her travels (which you can follow on Instagram) and also other people who have chosen the tiny house option as a way to free up finances. There are a range of other people who have chosen to downsize, including a single guy or even a family of 5!
Everywhere you look in the video and the website, there are great storage solutions and simplicity. Inspiring to look at, even if you don’t plan on following the lifestyle completely. And, of course, it’s horizon-widening to see people who have made uusual life choices. Jenna is an excellent communicator.
Fulfilling her Life Goal
One of Jenna’s life goals was to travel the world. Maybe you read yesterday’s blog post of questions to help you find what is important to you in life:
For a moment, it’s exciting to see where you want to aim…. until you wonder “Where will I find the money to help me reach/train for that?” Perhaps Jenna’s way of releasing funds is helpful. It’s certainly working for her.
And what about the world travel? She has already visited 30 countries – including Iceland, Gautemala, Thailand, Taiwan… and is fulfilling her life’s ambition: to visit all the countries of the world. Where do you want to go in life?
