The ultimate guide to freelance travelhacking

Freelancing in NYC for a while? Work here for FREE!

Anything that involves the internet, making travel easier and saving money is basically a trifecta of awesomeness if you ask me. So over the years I’ve taken to using as many of the travel web apps out there as I possibly can.  Now that Rob and I are making a go of both living and working abroad, we need to be sure we can work from wherever we are too. So words like “coworking spaces” and “Boingo” (which up until recently I thought was just a typo that happened to be fun…

Blog posts we’ve loved this week

Another week, another RSS reader full of posts from our fellow bloggers that make us feel inspired and inferior at the same time. So like we started last week, we’re going to narrow it down to some of our favourites (not easy) and give them all an award in a stupid category we’re going to make up on the spot. It’s kind of like the Oscars. But a lot shorter. And it won’t be the highlight of anyone’s career to win one. And there’s no gifting tent. OK, not much…

A bureaucracy survival guide for digital nomads

When was the last time you asked someone to write you a letter? Or heck, even call you? And does it matter to you if someone has a permanent address? Probably not. We all live on the internet now; where you actually are (physically) matters less than ever before, and it’s hard to believe that when I was a kid we’d make a call to a fixed phone line and ask if our friend was there. Sadly, there’s a whole world of bureaucracy that isn’t so enlightened, and even though you’re…

From experience: items that really don’t deserve a space in your suitcase

This picture will make sense soon

Rob and I think we like to travel light, although compared to other digital nomads, we’re positively a disaster. So when we started packing for our first travelling stint (six months in the US), we made sure that everything we put in our suitcases would be utterly necessary. As it turned out, we had to do a whole lot of sitting-on-the-suitcase-while-the-other-one-tried-the-zip, as well as frequent suitcase-weighing sessions before we could be sure that Virgin Atlantic wouldn’t penalise us for heavy bags. (We did that thing of leaning the suitcase in various…

Blog posts we’ve loved this week

One of the best things about blogging is having an excuse to read all the great stuff being written by fellow nomads and travellers and almost convincing ourselves it counts as “work” – so we thought we’d start showing off a selection of our favourite blog posts from the past week. Each  post wins an award in a unique and rather silly category; we know that the posts themselves are waaaaay better than our stupid category names, but we didn’t want to be presumptuous and start dolling out awards in…
