Ever wondered how you can work & travel?

Have you ever wondered how you can work while traveling?

Have you felt like your travel dreams are impossible due to finances or not having enough vacation time at work?

Do you feel like remote jobs are only for people with top tech skills but not for you?

You’re not alone.

This is exactly how I felt in 2013. I was working in an associate-level marketing role at a tech company, making just enough money to afford a studio apartment and travel two weeks out of the year.

In my three years working for that company, I realized it wasn’t enough.

Lifelong Dreams of Travel H2

I always had big dreams of travel. As a kid, my grandma would tell me travel stories from places like Japan, which inspired me and filled me with wonder. Unfortunately, traveling to far-off places felt impossible. Adventure or even just vacation wasn’t something my parents prioritized — they were more focused on just getting by.

Despite being unable to travel much while growing up (or perhaps because of it), I obsessively watched shows on the Travel Channel like Passport to Europe with Samantha Brown. In my daydreams, I was like Samantha, traveling the world and sharing my experiences with others.

When I got my first full-time office job back in 2013, I finally had enough financial stability to book a trip overseas. My first trip was two weeks in the United Kingdom, and the following year I took a trip to Iceland. After that second trip, I knew I would never be happy sitting behind a desk for most of my life. I wanted to keep moving, keep traveling. I wanted more control over my destiny.

But even though I worked in the tech industry, I didn’t think I had the right skills to work online full-time (and remote jobs weren’t as common back then). So I looked into options like Workaway, where I could get room and board in exchange for labor around a house or farm.

I was completely set on this course of action and saved money with plans to quit my job. But I eventually realized I didn’t want to throw away my career prospects to fulfill my travel dreams. There had to be a better way.

In 2015, by total chance, I was offered a new job that happened to be remote. I took the offer, booked a flight to Greece to celebrate (leaving 48 hours later!), and haven’t worked in an office since!

Today in 2021, there are significantly more options for remote work. The workforce is changing rapidly. Options for work you can travel with don’t have to be limited to Workaway-style situations, low-paying gigs, or chance employment offers.

These days, it’s much easier to find fulfilling work that will help you fund your travels on the go. And no, you don’t have to know how to code or even have a degree (I don’t!) to take advantage of these new opportunities!

Create a Life of Travel — Centering YOU! H2

In my six years of working remotely, I’ve traveled to almost 30 countries, done business in Silicon Valley, Japan, and Europe, and started my own consulting company. My life is completely different than it was when I was working in an office. By taking my work on the road, I was able to meet incredible people and find opportunities I could never have previously imagined.

Remote work opened up my entire world — quite literally.

I was able to create a life that centered on me as a person and my passions and goals, not my boss or my work.

My journey of the last six years is what inspired me to write a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to remote work for women: The Remote Work Era: The Guide for Women to Go Remote & Thrive!
