How to “Unsettle Down” like a digital nomad – Verizon Communications

On-the-road traditions

Wherever they travel on the holidays, they bring their traditions with them, like watching “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” eating seafood on Christmas Eve and decorating their Christmas tree with tickets.

“We made ornaments out of all of our plane tickets and our train tickets and hung them on the tree, which was cool!” Chelsea says. “We spent Christmas in Prague, New Year in Sevilla, Spain, and Thanksgiving in Croatia. But we do love coming home for the holidays, so that’s what we’re doing this year. We’re going to go back and see everyone else in our family on the East Coast.”

What’s next for Unsettle Down?

A part of what’s next for Unsettle Down may include some settling down.

“Traveling is something we will always do, but we are thinking about having a home base,” says Matt.

“We know we can’t be on the road all the time forever, so we are trying to figure that out,” Chelsea adds.

They’re considering taking the leap into entrepreneurship and focusing on their joint marketing and web development projects. And putting some roots down somewhere with a house that could provide a home base—and rental income while they travel.

“There’s a balance,” Matt says. “We want to find that happy medium where we have a fallback plan. But no, there’s not going to be any real settling down for this crew for a very long time. There’s too much of this world to see.”
