So now, after much experience with the whims of fate, I’ve decided to circumvent and prohibit where possible. I travel smarter, and I prepare smarter. I work when I travel and travel when I work, because my laptop goes everywhere with me, which allows me to work from anywhere in the world, so long as I have occasional internet connection. Ten years ago, I don’t know if you could travel and make a lifestyle out of working abroad like I do now.
The result of being a tech traveler is that I have to carry all sorts of gear everywhere I go, because not only am I a blogger and designer, but I’m also a photographer who specializes in travel photography and landscape photography. So on any given trip, I’ve got a rucksack packed to the brim with computer, hard drives, camera, lenses, memory cards, tablet, and more, on top of my clothing, toiletries, survival gear, camp gear, and beyond. Seriously, the packing list before each trip is daunting.
