#11 What About When | Colin Wright – Minimalism, Author Of Dozens Of Books, One Of The Original Digital Nomads.

This episode is an interview with Colin Wright of many fames, the most notable of which including being a serial author, international speaker and prolific creative producer.

I started perusing Colin’s blog, Exile Lifestyle, many years ago whilst I was doing lots of travelling. Colin has lived in many, many different cities and villages throughout the world. He would intentionally go somewhere for 4 months at a time to lay some roots, but never too deep.

We spoke about highlights from his travels, the upsides and downsides of the digital nomad surge, we touched on minimalism and then ended the chat with a bit of geopolitics.

Colin Wright is the author of dozens of books and all of his work is found here at
