4 Tips For Living The Nomad Life
The Dos And Don’ts
Living the nomad life is the dream. Working from street side cafes in Hanoi one week
and then packing up for a Balinese bungalow the next can be your reality. However,
succeeding at the work/life balance takes time and attention and can sometimes be more
draining than you imagined.
If you are ready to embark on a nomadic existence, pay
attention to these Dos and Don’ts.
Do Make Daily "To-do" Lists
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
Don't Accumulate Too Much Stuff
You move around by definition and while it may be tempting to decorate every new home,
you can’t allow yourself to get weighed down. One backpack should do so get familiar
with the difference between a want and a need and learn how to detach from material
Do Reverse Schedule
When you work from home, it’s sometimes difficult to turn your "work mode" off. It’s
easy to fall into the trap of working from the time you get up until you go to sleep,
thus requiring the reverse schedule. Schedule out each day to include dedicated times
for recreation. Dinner with a friend, an hour of reading a good novel, work them in
every day to avoid burnout.
Don't Forget To Ground Yourself
Just because you love to be on the move doesn’t mean that you won’t miss "home" every
now and then. Take some time to ground yourself and contact friends and family for a
chat or splurge on a visit. If you’ve been living amongst different cultures, take a
day or two every month to just sit inside and watch your favorite show, or eat some
comfort food wherever you can get your hands on it.

5 Ways To Make Money Online So You Can Travel Whenever You Want
Think two weeks off a year is ridiculous? You aren’t alone. As technology advances and
more and more businesses are running online, employees are ditching the office,
grabbing their laptops and heading out the door.
If you want the freedom to work from
a bungalow on a Thai beach or trade coffee breaks for hiking breaks in the Swiss Alps,
here are some ways that you can make your money online.
Freelance a Skill
There are hoards of freelancing websites on the internet that can connect you with
people in need of your particular skill. From writing, editing and language
translation to voice over recordings, digital marketing and web design, you can create
a client base and start making cash.
This method essentially requires you to play the middle man between companies selling
a product and buyers. For example, if you choose a niche like furniture, you will need
to create a website and then find multiple furniture distributors who are willing to
sell through you. When buyers visit your website and make a purchase, you will need to
contact the distributor and have them send the buyer the product. There is a lot of
upfront work, but it becomes quite low key as time goes on.
No matter the language you speak, there is probably someone out there who wants to
learn it. Find a language platform online like Italki.com and start giving online
lessons for a fee.
Create a Product
It could be an e-book to sell on Amazon, an educational course to sell on Udemy or a
physical creation to be sold on Etsy. Think about your skills, what you could create
and how to market it.
Run a Blog/Website
A travel blog, a cooking website or a niche page about playing chess-whatever it is,
write quality content, market via social media and use affiliate links to earn
commission when readers purchase products and services from your site.

The Cayman Islands
We fell in love with the Cayman Islands when we spent over a month there. These
islands are south of Cuba in between Jamaica and the Yucatan Peninsula (super close to Florida), so they're easy to get to.
They're prosperous islands with much to offer. We rented a condo right on the gorgeous
7 Mile Beach, one of the world's most beautiful beaches. We spent hours in the
waters right in front of our villa. Here are the things we loved the most about this
special country in the Caribbean.
• One of the few places where you can snorkel right off the beach and see
amazing reefs, sea life
• The history and the beautiful architecture throughout make it a charming
place to visit
• Turquoise waters and white sand ring all of the islands
• Stingray City is not to be missed. These are naturally-occurring sand
close to shore where fishermen from centuries ago would stop to clean
their catches. Stingrays would come visit to enjoy the droppings. You can
boat there and
swim with the stingrays that continue to hover at the sand
• Margaritaville - - if you've got kids, this fun restaurant chain is always a
good time. The one on Grand Cayman offers a long waterslide, pool,
amazing views and fun games
• Rum Point - - a great place to laze away the day with water sports,
shops, restaurants and great snorkeling that includes starfish
There are many more things to enjoy on these charming islands. It's one of the places
where you can find paradise easily!
