Not much can match the feeling of being a global vagabond, touching down in a new city in a new country and quickly making it your new home. But funding this sort of adventure can be tricky. Here are some ways to get out there and see the world without living like a pauper.
#1: Extreme Telecommuting
Have a sit down with your employer and discuss the possibility of working from home the majority of the time. Unless your job requires you to be physically present in order to interact face-to-face with customers all day, telecommuting could be a possibility. Try getting your foot in the door with working from home (or anywhere) and then work on expanding how much you can do away from the office.
#2: Long-Term Sabbatical
If at all possible you could see if you can work out a long-term sabbatical, but for most professions this would be a long shot. College professors enjoy a sabbatical as one of their many perks, and it often takes 7 years to earn a year off. Maybe you can’t swing a year of paid leave, but see how much you can squeeze out of them.
