Welcome to The Tropical Nomad!

My name is Hasina and I am the founder of the Tropical Nomad, a travel and lifestyle blog dedicated to creatives on the road. Two years ago, I left my conventional city life in London to embark on a trip to Bali. What was supposed to be a month-long adventure became a complete lifestyle change and a journey of self-discovery. Here I met inspiring travellers making a living through their passions, as well as fascinating local communities rising up to the challenges brought by tourism, while striving to preserve their culture.

By sharing mine and their stories, I want to inspire travellers around the world to follow their passions and find their purpose, while sharing a captivating insight into the life of global creative communities, places and cultures.
