The laptop lifestyle: Work & Travel at the same time

What is your normal work day? Do you wake up with barely enough time to get ready before you go to work? Do you sit at a desk all day, inside a cubicle? Maybe you have a window, if your lucky, that looks out onto the street.

Now imagine, if you will, waking up and seeing the gorgeous view of a beach right outside your window. Or maybe some mountains, if that’s more your style. For people who are living the “laptop lifestyle,” this is very much a reality for them. This type of lifestyle may not be for everyone, it’s not like working a 9 to 5. But for those that can overcome that hurdle, the pros far outweigh the cons.

For those that have put in the work to create a source of income through the internet, they are not tied to one location. They can literally go anywhere, as long as they can get a decent internet connection. This means they can work AND have fun. That means they can stay in areas with breathtaking views, sample the finest cuisine that a region has to offer, and learn about the culture and history. They can experience the world, all while still working and making a living.

The drawback to this sort of lifestyle is that it can be hard for people to find the happy medium between work and play. Deadlines still need to be met, so it takes a person that can truly be there own boss and make sure that the work gets done. The other thing to consider is the fact that unless you have clients that pay you a monthly retainer, you won’t necessarily be getting the steady paycheck that you would from a normal job. That means that you need to make sure that you have enough money coming in to not only pay for your travels, but any other bills you might have.

The laptop lifestyle isn’t an easy one by any means. It is still work, and it’s tricky to find the happy medium. But for those that have the willpower and the wherewithal to succeed, this type of life is truly rewarding and gratifying.…

To travel or not to travel?

To travel or not to travel. This is the question that you should ask. There are many people that are wondering if it is a great idea to travel abroad for the first time.

Do you have enough money in your budget?

The most important question to ask. Do you have enough money in your budget to start planning your trip to a foreign country? You don’t want to go to another country that you don’t know anything or anyone without having enough money in your budget.

It is much better to save for a couple of months and making sure that you rather bring money back home, than when you are stuck in a foreign country without a cent on your name. 

Do you have the personality to travel solo and to meet new people? 

Not everyone has the right personality for traveling. Especially, when you are thinking about traveling solo and meeting new people. What type of personality do you have?

The introvert isn’t really a great candidate for traveling solo and meeting new people. He will not be able to meet new people at all.
