Dear Fellow Traveler,

Happy February! We trust your 2016 has gotten off to a great start. As for us, after a long search we have finally adopted a new puppy! His name is Sky. Look for upcoming articles on travel with pets in future issues of TraveLiving.

Even with our new addition, we haven't given up on our own travel. This month we are meeting friends in Mammoth for our annual family ski trip. And for spring break (it's never too early to plan) we'll be spending time on Turks & Caicos in the Caribbean.

You, too, can live a life filled with travel. Read on for insights on long-term travel prep and making money once you've gone.

Abundant Travels,
             Kathryn & Jon

3 Tips on Preparing for Extended Time on the Road

VIP for Free Simply wrapping your head around packing up and leaving for the long haul out on the road may seem extremely daunting, which is completely understandable. It’s a big change and in order to make it easier on yourself, consider the following tips...

1.  Plan Ahead
If you are already a natural planner, this will be no problem. If not, then you really need to buckle down and plan at least the first two months out on the road. Where you are staying, your budget, and your work plans. This will help cut down your stress immensely.

2.  Pack Light
This may be one of the hardest ones as you will feel like you have to take your entire home with you, but trust us when we say that that is NEVER a good idea. Bring only the essentials (laptop, money, small suitcase of clothes, etc.) and always remember that you need to be prepared to leave at a moment’s notice! Life out on the road is unpredictable, but that is also what makes it so exciting!

3.  Stay Connected
One of the most important things you need to do in order to thrive on the road is obviously to maintain your income so that a month or two down the road you don’t find your pockets completely penniless. Stay connected by use of WiFi, email, and phone so that you are always on top of your work. The flipside of this is too of course know when to stop working and enjoy your time out on the road because after all, isn’t that what this decision to live the Portable Lifestyle™ is all about?

3 Ways to Make Money on the Road Virtually

If you think the Portable Lifestyle™ is for you, yet you’re still trying to come up with ways in which to make it happen, consider these following three options...

1.  Fiverr
Do you have skills as a writer, a graphic designer, or maybe you are an expert at WordPress? Whatever you know how to do, you can offer that type of service through sites like Fiverr where buyers come to you, make a request, receive your work, and hopefully order more from you! Browse through the site to get some ideas.

2.  Tutoring
Did you do well in school? Well, there are thousands of high school and college students out there that could greatly use your expertise and help with school work and preparing for tests. It can all be done virtually through Skype and companies like TruePrep (http://trueprep.co) can pay you up to $50 an hour!

3.  Blogging
Do you have a specific niche you are interested in and know a ton about? Consider starting a website and blog. If you work hard enough, you may be able to make money through selling ads, your products, and posting affiliate links. Though it’s a ton of work, blogging may just become something that produces an income for you on the road and be something you absolutely love!
