Work to Wander, Travel Longer

This page is all about how to work abroad so you can stay abroad longer!

I’ve totally failed at living the American Dream. Like… Miserably. Womp Womp.

I never got a house, I’m not married, I have no kids, and I don’t even have a 9-5! Am I the worst or what?!

The thing is, I never wanted these things. I always wanted something else.

While it took time to realize that it’s OK to want something different despite the societal pressures, I’ve come to terms with it and I’m now living life the way I want to.

I’ve always wanted to travel BUT I’m not rich. Mommy and Daddy don’t give me a dime and I don’t have a travel sugar daddy…

So how have I survived traveling abroad since 2011?

It’s simple – I work for it. (Shocking. I know!)

I’ve held numerous jobs that are travel-friendly and I’m here to share with you how you can find a job that lets you travel too!

Here are my resources on how you can work to wander so YOU can travel longer!
