I’m Nate Niehuus, and this is The Nomad Trip. I’m stoked you’re here. I built this site to share my experiences as I plan for and then leave for the sailing circumnavigation: The Nomad Trip. My goals are to escape the rat race and live a simple, sustainable life on the ocean. Along the way, I plan to visit the most beautiful and remote spots on the planet and share the experience through this site. Freediving, traveling, and spearfishing are my passions. If you want to know more about me, or The Nomad Trip, check my About page by clicking here. And I can give you 7 reasons to stay in touch here.
I write a little about sailing, a little about spearfishing, and a little about freediving. Through The Nomad Trip I hope to be able to share some of the places I go, the people I meet, the landscapes I see, the cruising lifestyle – and the underwater life that I find along the way. This is a work of passion – so bear with me and I’ll update as often as possible. I can honestly say that the learning curve is the steepest I’ve ever encountered.
I hope you stay in touch as I work to piece this trip together. It definitely won’t be boring. It definitely will be challenging. I’m always on the lookout for crew, specifically if you’re a freediver/spearfisherman, a cook, or a mechanic. Sailing chops are obviously a plus too. If you happen to be involved with a brand that you think would be interested in sponsoring me, again shoot me an email.

The mind is everything. What you think you become. – Budda I don’t think words exist that are any more true, in any text. I’ve begun to really try to prepare myself for the circumnavigation, mentally. And what I’m finding is resistance – not just from others – but from myself. Rather than beginning to […]
First – a quick apology about the tardiness of this particular post, I’ve been fighting with my Mac and my external hard drive for a couple of weeks and things still aren’t back on track. You may also find it a bit philosophical/introspective, but I’ll let you be the judge. So, with that said – here’s […]
As you may or may not know, I’ve decided to circumnavigate in 2017 and decided to keep a travel blog to document the process. This post is about how I hope to finance travel (for 5 years). It’s definitely not going to be easy and it’s definitely going to take some planning and hard work. […]
First of all, this is a summary of my life to this point. It’s not exceptional and probably mirrors many other people’s lives – there’s been both tragedy and triumph, adventure and boredom. I don’t write this because I think I’m special, I’m writing it so those interested souls understand where I’m coming from. […]
