Become A Digital Nomad And Explore The World!

Hi, I’m Aly and I’m a 30-year-old adventure seeker from a small village in the south of Ireland. Welcome to my virtual home!

Traveler Ahoy is my space online where I talk about all things travel, lifestyle design and going against the grain. My goal with this blog is to inspire my readers to step out of their comfort zones and follow their dreams, whatever they may be. 

Do stick around as it would be great to have you aboard for the journey! 


Top 3 Reasons Why I LOVE (and you will too!) Being a Digital Nomad


The Sense Of Freedom

I don’t have a boss, I don’t have dedicated working hours, I don’t follow the rules, and yet I still have a job that I love and I’m happier than I’ve ever been.

Years ago I would have thought this wasn’t possible for an average person. 3 years into living this digital nomad way of life, and I’ve learned that it’s more than possible, even for you.

If things work out, I’ll always be free of having to answer to a boss, wear a dress suit and live in a house that puts me in debt. You cannot put a price on freedom. 

Exploring The World

With freedom comes the opportunity to explore new places, learn new things and make lifelong memories that you cannot make whilst sitting at an office desk.

Traveling to new countries, meeting new people and learning about new cultures is a gift and one that, in my opinion, should be taken advantage of. 

I’ve already traveled to 43 countries and I have no plans to slow down my country hopping escapades anytime soon. I really believe that to travel is to live and I hope that my blog can inspire you to travel, to live and to have no regrets. 


The Opportunity to Help Others

Having this opportunity to travel and create my own path in life in terms of work also affords me the opportunity to help others.  

Whether it’s doing some volunteer work in countries like Thailand and Guatemala or inspiring others to live out their dreams through my writing on this blog, I love having the chance to connect with and help others.

Many of the people you connect with when you travel will change you so when you’re on the road, seize those little opportunities where lending a helping hand will make a difference. 

My Message To You…




My Philosophy

We are all born free but that changes as we grow older.

Family, work and financial commitments constrict us into living a certain way in order to survive. The world around us tells us that we must graduate college, get a job, find a partner, buy a house, have a family and retire at 65.

That freedom that each of us was born with is lost in all of this and, more often than not, it disappears forever.

I’m doing things my way and making freedom my priority. I hope to inspire you to do the same.

Working Online & The Possibilities Out There 

I’m not one to exaggerate BUT becoming your own boss will be one of the best things you’ll ever do. As having the freedom to travel is my priority, supplementing my income by getting some writing gigs online was my goal.

That has been my primary source of income since I left home, but I’ve figured out a few more tricks when it comes to making money online.

Having to earn every cent of my pay cheque does come with its own set of challenges but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

There are so many opportunities out there when it comes to working online and Traveler Ahoy covers many of them so stay tuned for insider info and tips.
