How I Can Afford My Life Of Constant Travel

How I Can Afford My Life Of Constant Travel
I’m confused. 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. So what am I to do? December 25, 1999: March 2000

Career Break: How to Quit Your Job and Travel When Jodi Ettenberg left her job as a corporate attorney in 2008, she thought she’d eventually return to law. But one thing led to another, and seven years later, she now runs Legal Nomads, a food and travel website. “In many countries, it’s seen as strange if you don’t take a year to travel,” Ettenberg, 35, says. “When I visited New Zealand, they thought quitting was the best thing I could do.” Most thriving companies don’t want employees running for the exit. Free Things to Do - Free Tips on Saving Money at WomansDay As much as I love the word, I have to admit it makes me suspicious. Just this week I won a “free” vacation, but the fine print says I need to send in a cashier's check to claim my prize. Sadly, “free” is usually a sneaky way to clean out my wallet.

The Traveller’s Medicine Cabinet: 5 Essential Drugs for the Road While out roving you aren’t always (or even often) anywhere near a hospital or pharmacy.

Whether it's a late night at work or something else, we get it; sometimes that hour of downward dogging just doesn't happen. There's no reason not to strike a few poses throughout the day, though.

How to travel the world for free (seriously) You can travel the world for less money than you spend each month to fill up your gas tank. WORLD TRAVEL is cheap and easy. In fact, with a little practice and effort, you can travel for free. The idea that travel is expensive and difficult is bullshit peddled by tour companies, hotel chains, and corporate media. The tourism industry wants you to buy cruise packages and stay at all-inclusive resorts. They want you to choose a world travel experience the same way you would choose a new jacket at the mall.

How to Pack for a 1 Year, Round the World Trip - Powered by Tofu Packing light is one of the top questions I get about my RTW career break. We all know that person who drags a mammoth rolling suitcase on vacation and many of us have encountered the smelly guy who brags about only carrying a daypack.
