Welcome to A Digital Nomad

You have stumbled upon the Digital Nomad blog. This is a dual blog, a Tech and Travel Blog. It about when Tech and Travel cross as well as when they don’t. I travel a fair amount for work and for fun and use Mac products extensively and exclusively while doing so. This blog is about the places I travel to and the technology I use along the way like the iPad, iPod, iPhone, MacBook Air, and Mac Pro. It is also about technology in general as well as some fun places and things we have done while traveling over the last 20 years.
