digital nomads

Have you ever been on a cruise and ended up standing in line at most places? Or have you ever felt like you didn’t get to see enough sites on your vacation? And I think we’ve all uttered the words “my vacation wasn’t long enough”. Well, two adventurers, Michael Powell and Jürgen Horn, decided to set out on a journey across the world, combining work and travel as digital nomads and changing the perception of being a “tourist”. They spend 91 days in each place and their method of slow travel enables them to really take it all in and blog about it every step of the way.
The two set out on their adventure in August 2010 in Oviedo (Asturias, Spain), from there they ventured to other places like Savannah, Georgia, Sri Lanka, Palermo, Italy, Buenos Aires and currently they’re touring our fine state of Idaho.  In between their day jobs (obviously working remotely) the time they spend in each place allows them to find unique beauty in each location they visit.

“We want to comprehensively learn about the places we visit. Becoming familiar with a city’s rhythm and culture takes some time. We thought 3 months ought to do it. About 91 days.”

Here are some photos of their recent trip in Idaho. You can follow Mike and Jürgen on their blog,, on Facebook or Twitter.
Now, who wants to go on a vacation? We sure do.

Tom Foerstel : Founder & President

Tom Foerstel

Founder & President

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 60’s, Tom developed a strong desire to create positive change for people and planet.


He went on to pursue his passion for art and design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and worked for design firms in Southern California before moving to Boise, Idaho in the early 80’s. Foerstel Design opened its doors in 1985. Since its inception, the firm has cultivated a bold, happy, forward-looking team focussed on creating distinct and effective work on behalf of their clients.


An integral part of Tom’s philosophy is giving back to the community in which he lives — a company cornerstone that drives Foerstel’s long history of providing pro-bono services to local non-profit humanitarian and arts programs.


One of Tom’s proudest personal achievements is his ability to say Supercalifragilisticexpyalidocious backwards.
