Becoming a Digital Nomad

I’ve always loved working in the most random places, especially growing up – I’d find myself doing homework on anything other than a desk. About six months ago, when in my office job, I started to think about working anywhere and whether it could be a possibility for me.

Inspired by people posting images of their ‘offices’ all around the world, I started to get itchy feet. Freelancers on beaches and in internet cafes across the globe made me think that becoming a digital nomad could actually be a viable option. Risky yes, but viable.

I’ve had a desire to travel my whole life really, an absolute sucker for going anywhere on a plane. I lived in Vienna for a year after uni and ever since I’ve felt restless, wanting to see more of the world. But, travelling as much as I wanted with a full time job was never possible.

That’s when I decided that I was going to go freelance and explore.

I’m not in a position where I have heaps of savings and disposable cash to throw at travelling. No, no, I need to earn a living as I go. So, over the past few months, I’ve been carving out a freelance writing career in an attempt to help fund my travels.

It’s great, because I enjoy writing and love working with new people from so many different walks of life. In the last few months I’ve learnt a lot and I know that it’s not going to be plain sailing but I believe that if you want something so badly, you can make it happen.

A few months ago, I pictured myself writing on a beach somewhere exotic and in just over two weeks, my boyfriend and I are jetting off to Thailand. And the plan? To keep writing, building more clients and seeing the world.

I’ll let you know how it goes, wish me luck!
