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!

The normal, expensive boat problems.  Familiar, grinding, frustration. Long quiet periods shattered by moments of terror. Back with friends. Then saying goodbye to […]
