Digital Nomad Travel Blog

Life from a Bag was an expat focussed travel blog, written by a South African on the move called Lerato. In 2021 it was purchased by Matt and it is slowly being turned in a resource for digital nomads to travel the globe and find freedom.

I’ve lived on 3 continents for over a year each while traveling to 30+ countries.

My blog is a wanderlusters guide with tips for living abroad, budget travel tips, and Itineraries for mostly visa friendly destinations all over the world.

Follow Life from a Bag for round-the-world adventures as I inspire you to fill your own travels with color, culture, and creativity.

Over the years I have helped hundreds of people find financial and travel freedom through my businesses at Online Gusto, Travel Tractions Marketing Agency, The Marketing Mill Agency and other small investments through OG Ventures.

I hope this blog in some way helps you find your next destination, inspires you to pursue your next adventure, and find the freedom and life you have been looking for.
