Either they are forced to flee from their war torn countries, or they simply desire for more adventure, new experiences, new cultures and climates.

Because of the global economic downturn many young people are also tempted to live abroad for greater job opportunities. Itâ€™s now a trend among migrant workers to use their assignments and jobs as ground for a nomadic lifestyle.
The name global nomad was labeled in 1980 documentaries of travelling children following their parents around the globe. Today it describes a kind of freedom for a mobile group of businessmen, freelancers, and employees alike, able to relocate anywhere given access to a signal and a cellphone. Change to them is a source of new challenge and new experience.
A modern global nomad becomes restless when stuck in one place for a period of time. He is compelled to move time and again in order to see more of the world. His sense of â€˜homeâ€™ is lost, experiences takes place of the objects that often defines a home. To him home is wherever he is.
When friendship formed, it is a considerable waste of time to be unhappy to leave people behind for there are always new places to go.
A nomadic life would attract only those with “a sense of adventure,” or perhaps a low tolerance for boredom. It is a lifestyle that suits the outgoing.
Globalization has a big effect to global nomads. Today more people speak English, locals are changing, and they donâ€™t pay anymore much attention to the tourists.

Some say because of the chance to have many different experiences they feel rich, but on the other hand, they donâ€™t feel complete. However, a global nomad life is a liberating experience.
