About Us

Welcome to
Carpe Diem Nomads

Hi! I'm Laura (friends and family call me LaLa), and I'm an adventurer! I believe that life is about exploration... of ourselves and the world around us. My husband Tom (@PapaTom99) has been my partner in most of my life's adventures. We met in the Air Force (we are both veterans) and have been married for 37 years.

Carpe Diem (Latin for seize the day) is the motto I try to live my life by. I want to make the most of every day, moment, and experience... no matter how big or small.

This is a variety IRL stream. We like to travel and are downsizing our lives so we can be more nomadic. Our modes of transportation could be car, boat, plane, or converted school bus (skoolie).

We own a vintage 1982 Chris Craft Commander motor yacht, that serves to take us on water adventures, but also is outfitted for daily life. We want to do part, if not all, of America's Great Loop. It's a more expensive endeavor but we can dream and plan and see if we can make it happen.

We recently acquired a 2014 Blue Bird Vision school bus, and are converting it into a RV. We want to pursue a "land loop" trip around the entire US border.

The streams may range from travel adventures and exploration, planning and plotting our next move, or just the mundane day to day of whatever is going on where we are.

We have a passion for healthy eating and active living, and I try and get a yoga stream in on Sunday mornings from wherever we may be. We may even toss in a gaming stream now and again.

So I hope you will follow, and join us for whatever adventures come our way!
