Travel enriches our lives. For most people, traveling involves breaking away and coming back. We take vacations, then come “home” until we can go out for the next holiday.
Have you ever dreamed of your “normal life” being on your bicycle? Based on a four-year experiment living on a bicycle (https://freewheelingfreelancer.com/), this presentation provides basic principles and tips for deciding whether the life of the digital nomad (who burns the bridges) or the location-independent worker (who keeps a base somewhere) is right for you. We will discuss communications, types of work that travel, keeping healthy, budgeting, managing the business, etc. and answer questions about working abroad.
This is not bicycle touring, and it is not for everyone, but it is an achievable dream for many. Only the backpacker has more serious space and weight issues than the cyclist; the lessons from this presentation can be scaled up to other ways to travel.
If you have ever wondered about being able to live on the road, this presentation should be helpful – whether your ticket is one-way or round-trip.
