When traveling the world, anything can happen to you. Believe me, I should know. I’ve been through a brutal respiratory infection in Spain, something worse than the flu in Ireland, I’ve been robbed a couple of times, I’ve been lost, I’ve been stranded, and I’ve been scared. Yet, I’ve found beauty in the world like I never knew existed prior, from the vibrant and versatile cultures to the most phantasmagorical scenery in the natural world. So no matter what negatives may befall you, you must keep on keepin’ on, and never let the possibilities of what might happen stop you… because without travel and curiosity for new experiences, what is life but a stagnant nothingness on repeat?
The Digital Nomad lifestyle is all the craze. After all, who wouldn’t want to run a business from a beachside bar in Bali. Before embarking on a career and lifestyle change, it is vital to consider all angles, which, for U.S. citizens, includes tax obligations. As a U.S. citizen or Green Card holder, you are required to file a tax return declaring your worldwide annually, no matter where you reside.
The other day an avid reader wrote me, asking for my recommendations for a travel stroller; as they explained it, they have a young child that they wish to take overseas to see grandparents in Spain, but were underwhelmed by most choices in their local market. I wrote back with my optimum choice in mind: the YOYO+ Travel Stroller by Babyzen. Why? Because Babyzen is one of the most innovative buggy makers for children safety. The YOYO+ is an easy choice, not only because of its ease of use and feature-rich and accessory-rich lines, but because this stroller was designed for air travel.
Being Prepared for Anything Can Save Your Road Trip from Ending Prematurely: Reviewing Air Compressors by SuperFlow
A few years ago, I traveled nearly 20,000 miles in less than four months by road tripping around the USA. I had the pleasure of visiting 23 of states, touring clockwise around the country, and it was the time of my life. Besides spending nine months in Europe the previous year, this trip was one to be remembered forever. And yet, it ended prematurely. If it were not for serious transmission issues, my trip would have ended two months later, after visiting another eight states and a one to two week stint traveling from Vancouver to Banff, Canada. While I couldn’t have predicted or prepared for transmission failure, I could have been better prepared in other areas of my trip.
Working remotely is one of the greatest benefits of digital technology. So long as there's a wifi connection, it allows us to work from anywhere in the world. Given the choice, most of us would rather spend our mornings on a beach instead of the daily commute. More and more, we're picking up and leaving the places we live, selling our cars, barbecues, and all the cumbersome consumer items we've accumulated, and setting out into the world with just a backpack containing a few essentials and our laptops.
A few years back, I spent four months road tripping around the United States, basically living in my car for ten to fifteen hours a day as my buddy and I trekked through over thirty states. The worst part wasn’t the lengthy trips, but the affect they had on my body. Not only was my back screaming within the first few weeks of being glued to uncomfortable bucket seats, but my body was beginning to feel and react differently. Apparently, I had thrown off the balance of my system. Because not only had fast food done quite a toll on me, but I was beginning to not sleep right. And I couldn’t use the restroom easily as I could before. With these problems came on a negativity within my mood and my perspective suffered for being unhealthy and unfit during this trip.
