Road-tested tips to travel like a pro

Woooo!

Rob and I have been running our businesses while we travel for three years now, so we think we have the “travel” aspect sussed at least. When we started out though, we were CLUELESS. We had two gigantic suitcases, zero knowledge of how to get the best deals on the best accommodation, a terrible track record with booking optimal flights, no clue about visas or insurance, and near-divorce experiences every time we approached an airport. Through trial, error and a fair few meltdowns, we got to grips with “long-term travel”…

The future of digital nomadism: some predictions

This week marks the third anniversary of us upping and leaving our home, jobs and friends in London behind. Back then, we thought we were just going on a career break: we’d never heard of the term “digital nomad” – and it didn’t exist outside of a small number of blogs run by people mostly in their 20s, mostly designers or programmers, and mostly travelling on their own or as a couple.

Day 1

Every day for the past 14 years, I’ve started each morning with a 5.5-mile brisk walk around the city. Literally every day. The only times I haven’t walked is when we’ve been up in the air on an overnight flight. But a few weeks ago I had my first scary incident; it involved a surprisingly strong man in lycra, and a surprisingly weak me (I seriously assumed my kicking and punching abilities were more impressive than they are). Ever since – even though I know it’s irrational – I’ve been…
