A decade ago, Jodi Ettenberg was a big-shot corporate lawyer on her way to the top. Then, she quit her job and traveled to Siberia.
Jodi was living the life many parents wish for their kids: she graduated from college with great marks, got a law degree, and was working as a corporate lawyer for six years. She basically had it all – a fulfilling career, a stable income, and a bright future ahead of her. But it wasn’t what she wanted – well, it wasn’t all she wanted. There’d been an itch she was dying to scratch for years – and finally, she decided to do something about it.
Other than her interest in law, Jodi had always been fascinated by travel. In high school, she saw a documentary about trans-Siberian trains and had been longing to travel the world for a year ever since. So, after six years in corporate law, she finally decided to make a change and spend a year traveling. To keep her mom informed, she also started a blog, Legal Nomads.
But the ex-lawyer’s adventures interested more than just her mom, and soon she became a full-time traveler. Today, she’s still traveling the world. getting to know different cultures and having the time of her life. Doing legal work was great – but for Jodi, traveling is her real calling.
