TechnomadicsVagabonding Europe

We are Katherine Herriman & Michael Tyson. We began Technomadics in June of 2009 to chronicle our vagabond lifestyle. Having escaped the financial burden of rent and bills, and reclaimed our life from full-time jobs, we’ve since pursued our dreams with determination and passion -- Katherine with her art and Michael with his software development business.
