The Nomad Trip

I’m Nate Niehuus, and this is The Nomad Trip.  I’m stoked you’re here. A few years ago, I escaped the rat race to live a simple, sustainable life on the ocean.  Now I’m in San Blas and am offering once-in-a-lifetime experiences onboard one of the best-equipped Lagoon 380’s in the world. Learn more about booking a charter by clicking here.

Below you’ll find my latest blog posts, which vary in subject.  Take a look-see and let me know what you think in the comments.

Cheers, and if you like what you’ve read, share it!
