Tigger & me in CannesTalon Windwalker is a single parent, author, writer, hospice professional, Zen monk, former ultra runner, snowshoer, endurance cyclist, certified endurance running coach, scuba instructor, photographer, and lover of travelling, languages, and cultures.

Years ago when I was a young adult, I had a dream of raising my children in foreign countries and having them experience this amazing, large world.  After years of working in intensive care, trauma, and with the dying, my family & life motto became Vivez sans regrets! (Live without regrets!)  In that tradition, I decided now was the time to take my dream and make it a reality.  To that end, on 4 May 2011 I left my traditional work life and embarked on life as a full-time nomad, traveling around the world slowly with my young daughter (aka Tigger), who was 9 years old when we began our new life.   I “world school” Tigger, teach languages, write, do photography, teach scuba, and do other online work along the way.

We hope you’ll follow us as we live our crazy adventure.  Who knows, maybe you’ll be inspired to make your own reality as well!
