Welcome to the Nerd Nomads
Hi! We’re Maria & Espen, two Norwegian explorers, and founders of Nerd Nomads; a travel blog focused on adventure travel and epic experiences. Inspired by the classic movie adventures that sparked our wanderlust we provide inspiring articles, photography, and in-depth destination guides for travellers looking to start their adventure.
Nerd Nomads – Helping Your Adventures Come True
The ancient temples of Petra in Indiana Jones, the tropical island paradise of The Beach, or the deserts of Lawrence of Arabia.
Growing up we dreamt of seeing these kinds of wonders ourselves. One day we packed our bags and set out to transform our cinematic inspiration into real adventures. Thirty countries later and we are still exploring. – – Maria & Espen
