Erohisms? What?

We're Rob and Lina Eroh, and we're the voices behind erohisms (pronounced "arrow-isms"). We left San Francisco and our fancy tech jobs to pursue a crazy challenge: go from well-employed to well-traveled on $1000pp/month. We succeeded and now we're exploring life as digital nomads, working from wherever fancy strikes. If you’re into adventure travel, awesome photography, and behind the scenes exposés, you’ll love following our journey.

Currently in San Francisco, California.
On the road since February 2013.
