About Me


The Nomadic Spirit is a blog detailing my various travel experiences. The purpose of this blog is to share my stories from living and traveling abroad. You will find my life’s adventure here: a never ending journey of discovery and cultural exchange.

Here you will find not only personal stories, but tips and advice on how and where to travel. While this is a fairly new blog, I intend for it to grow and evolve over time.

On The Nomadic Spirit, I will be sharing personal stories, advice, and much more. Anyone with an interest in travel will gain insight into what it is to be abroad here. I have lived in 10 countries spanning from North America to Europe, Africa, and Asia. I will share travel tips I have picked up along the way… tips for surviving culture shock and holiday planning.

My name is Michael Paramore and I am a travel enthusiast, adventurer, blogger, and all around global nomad. I have spent most of 2015/2016 moving from place to place. I started in Europe for 2 months, Taiwan for 2 months, Canada for 4 months, Mexico for 3 months, and have since returned to Taiwan for the last 3 months. Prior to this year of travel, I lived in various countries and completed my Undergraduate degree in Political Science at the American University in Cairo.


Over the last 25 years, I have experienced living in diverse cultural climates both inside and outside of the United States of America. I have traveled to around 40 states within the US and 28 (soon to be 29) countries around the globe. I have a passion for intercultural exchange, sharing experiences with travelers, and learning the history and politics of the country I am spending time in.

I am currently in Bogota, Colombia studying intensive spanish until September 2017.

Life is about discovery of the unknown. Who would we be if we didn’t seek out that which we didn’t know? Join me on my journey around the world to discover new cultures, new foods, new traditions.
