The Pilot

This heavy year has brought hosts Noami Grevemberg and Anaïs Monique incredible growth, with insightful breakthroughs, profound solidarity and an expanding BIPOC nomadic community. This year has also brought us to tears with violence, microaggressions and burn-out.  In our pilot episode, Noami and Anaïs sit down and get real with each other like never before. Noami, a former coastal biologist, and Anaïs, a former flight attendant, explore how nomadism has affected their sense of community.  Throwing it all the way back to Q3 of 2019, they compare notes on how the founding of Diversify Vanlife literally shifted culture and visibility for BIPOC on the road. How the Uprising of 2020 exposed our roles in the Revolution as well as the holes in our self-care routines. They also speak on what it means to travel slowly in a Eurocentric country where capitalistic values are the measure of success. In this proper introduction, get to know our hosts as they weave through key moments in their journeys: what it looked like to take major risks as Black women and what led them to embracing nomadic life and ultimately, to hosting Nomads at the Intersections podcast.  Find the episode transcript via Diversify Vanlife   SOCIALS Podcast @nomadsattheintersections Community @diversify.vanlife Host @irietoaurora Co-host @anaismoniq   QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE  “Setting boundaries has become a form of self care for me.” - Noami “I feel like I’ve become a woman, leaving this trail of myself across the world.” - Anaïs “For me it’s really about realigning with my core values. Asking myself, how can we do this and include everybody? Because to me, community means we don’t have to travel this world alone.” - Noami “The outdoors isn’t for our entertainment, that is a perk, but we’re supposed to have a relationship with the land.” - Anaïs   Journaling Prompts— Expand the Conversation Who makes you feel safe?
