Web Designer in the morning, Massage Therapist in the afternoon
Living the dream……. I am a WordPress expert and spend much of my time travelling the world with my trusty laptop and can maintain or design your web site from anywhere in the world. I also create training manuals and support videos – if you need to know how to do something, just ask….
Travel - My ‘work 40 weeks/year, travel 12 weeks/year’ plan - In 2010, I came up with my overseas adventure challenge. I wondered whether it would be possible to work for 12 weeks, travel for 4 weeks, then do it all over again, and again. At first it was a bit difficult training my clients and managing my businesses but it all worked out in the end. It is quite easy once you brutally budget and organise.
To pay for my journeys in the 12 weeks of work, I simply put away $400/week if I want to spend a month in Asia or $800 if I want to go to Europe. I then book the tickets, liase with my house/pet sitter, and off I go!
In the last 4 years, I have explored Japan (x2), South Korea, Turkey(x2), Italy(x3), London, Dubai, Paris(x2), Bali(x2), Thailand(x4) and a few other places in between.
