NomadTALKS: 7 Free Events You Must Attend if You Want to Travel & Work Abroad

The NomadTALKS conferences are back again! Yes, the hottest travel talks are coming soon to a living room, office, bedroom, pool deck, co-working space near you! So grab your notepad and a pen because you won’t want to miss these exclusive travel tips from real-life nomads. The great thing about going virtual is that you can attend the events anywhere, wearing anything, and for free!

The NomadTALKS are proudly presented by International Experience Canada (Government of Canada program). 

We can’t wait to travel again, so much so that we’ve turned into hyper-planners, presenting no less than 7 TRAVEL EVENTS in the coming weeks. Did you know that planning a vacation is actually good for your health? Consider this your permission to turn off “Emily in Paris” and picture yourself strolling around Montmartre with a croissant in each hand.

If you are between 18 and 35 years old, this is the opportunity you don’t want to miss! Do you dream of travelling and working abroad after the pandemic? Mark your calendars for #NomadTALKS… you’re about to make your dreams come true!

What are the NomadTALKS?

NomadTALKS are used to inspire as many people as possible to travel further, longer and more often. After receiving an abundance of questions about their travel experiences, the founders of Nomad Junkies needed a way to share their answers on a bigger scale. Other cool travellers joined the conversation, and so began the NomadTALKS: a fun and informative event where advice, stories and tips are collected and circulated from all over the globe. It’s like reading a not-so-touristy guide for your next international adventure.

In 7 conferences, we will talk about visas (to work abroad), money management (for before, during and after your trip), jobs (how to find work) and of course, travel!

Why participate?

If you want to change careers and explore the world, the NomadTALKS are for you.

It’s time to discover new countries to add to your bucket list, listen to stories from inspiring travellers and above all, ask your burning questions.

Whether you’re ready to go right away (with suitcases packed at your front door) or just curious to learn more about nomadic life, the NomadTALKS will bring you that dose of travel that you probably crave right now. 

At the end of these free virtual conferences, you’ll be ready to plan the best experience of your life!

I love take-offs and I'm a fan of any destination near water or the mountains. My favourite trips have been road trips: inhaling fresh air through the Canadian Rockies and sipping tea along the grassy switchback alps of Switzerland on route to fairy tale castles in Germany. I'm not a light packer, but I'm slowly working on my technique. Right now I live out my travel dreams vicariously through writing about them.
