How to (Legally) Stay in Europe for More Than 90 Days. As I’ve been planning my move to Sweden, I’ve been trying to figure out how to get past the 90-day limit placed on tourist visas.

How to (Legally) Stay in Europe for More Than 90 Days

This is a problem encountered by travelers every year and a question that regularly pops up in my inbox. “How can I stay in Europe for more than 90 days?” I’m asked. It’s a great question with a very complicated answer. I’ve always known it’s difficult, but until I started researching on how to stay there, I never knew how difficult. First, it’s important to note that Europe isn’t a monolithic area—there are varying visa rules throughout the continent—but when people talk about the “90-day limit,” they’re talking about restrictions on the Schengen visa, which is the visa rule that governs 26 countries in Europe. What is the Schengen Visa? These countries have a border-free visa agreement that lets residents move throughout the Area without needing a passport. However, not all travelers are allowed such freedom. Staying in Europe—The Easy Way He’s right. France. Vacation & Short Term Rentals from HomeAway & FlipKey.

This dudes crazy right? Today is part two of what I am calling the "Knowledgeable Nomads" series, in which I will be teaching my readers how they can travel the world while ballooning their savings accounts rather than draining them dry. In the first part of this series I discussed general topics such as how to figure out what you want, devising your own getaway plan, quitting your job, creating a mobile income and taking the leap. All of these topics will be expanded on in upcoming posts, however today I will be covering a more specific topic, instructing my fellow nomadic souls on how they to can travel the world for FREE. Possibly the most common excuse I hear when urging others to travel and see the world, is the financial barrier that is separating them from partaking in such a journey.

How I Can Afford My Life Of Constant Travel. I’m confused.

How I Can Afford My Life Of Constant Travel

I’m simply confused as to how it’s possible that I have so far failed to properly explain how I’ve managed to travel/live/work abroad nonstop for 12 years straight (and counting). The questions are still pouring in every single day: How do you do it? How is it possible to travel for so long? Where does the money come from? And while I thoroughly enjoy communicating with readers (I’m being completely serious and encourage you all to continue sending your emails to me as often as you wish), the fact that these very questions are on the minds of so many of you out there has led me to believe that I need to do a better job at providing the answers.

While it’s true that I’ve already written plenty of posts on the matter, clearly all of these posts, even as one collective entity, still fall well short of proving that a life of travel is not some crazy fantasy but a perfectly reasonable and easily attainable lifestyle option instead. 20+ awesome travel jobs and how to get them. 1.
