If we’ve heard it once, we’ve heard it a thousand times: How do you afford to travel the world? Are you rich? How do you afford to keep taking so much time off to travel? Why haven’t you got a proper job? 

I cannot wait to share this episode with you!

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine that we would be a couple who could say, ‘we have location independent jobs and get paid while travelling the world’.

Never.

Yet it seems that’s exactly what we’re doing.

It took five years to get to this point. From quitting our job, selling our business and renting our house out for a year to take our kids around the world, to now. Travelling Europe for six months in a classic car.

In this episode, Brian and I share the journey of how we did it. how we afford to travel and everything that this incredible adventure has given us (so far!).

Enjoy!

Working while travelling…working while housesitting in France. See! It’s not all as glamorous as it looks!

 

Becoming Location Independent

 

Being location-independent is a term that you usually hear thrown around by young hip travellers who know how to do flash things like providing cheap website design to companies in Silicon Valley.

Location Independence is not the kind of thing you tend to hear a married couple in their fifties bragging about.

Yet here we are. Me and Bri. Living the dream…
