WEBWORKTRAVEL IS ALL ABOUT … WELL… WEB, WORK, AND TRAVEL
Learn about amazing workation spots and how to run your business online from anywhere in the world.
Do you love to travel? Are you location independent or planning to get a job that allows you to work from anywhere? Whether you’re an expert digital nomad, a regular ‘workationer’, or you’re just getting started on Webworktravel you’ll learn the most important things you need to know in order to run your office from some of the most beautiful places in the world.
I want to work and travel but why should I read your blog?
We are lucky enough to be born into a time when we can live and work online from wherever we want! Just think about that for a second… it’s an amazing opportunity. From Rio to Cape Town and Bali to Buenos Aires the world is your oyster. Now it’s time to go out there and explore the amazing world that we live in – but there’s a problem…
This is the thing – Working while travelling isn’t easy. Yes it’s an amazing lifestyle, but actually going out and making money while exploring the world also brings a lot of challenges.
How are you going to be productive if you’re surrounded by tourists? How can you get settled in a new city and make new friends quickly? And what are some of the best spots to visit while travelling the world?
After lots of experimenting (and lots of problems) over the last four years, I’ve learned a lot and it took me a long time to figure everything out.
On webworktravel I want to share with you what worked for me, so you can make the most out of this lifestyle. It doesn’t matter if you travel the world as a digital nomad, or you simply want to leave your office for an extended workation.
Hmm sounds Okay… So who writes this anyway?
I’m Johannes Voelkner, a German online marketer, kitesurfer, and full-time Digital Nomad since 2010!
To be honest with you, I actually never planned to become an Online Marketer, nor did I plan to work while travelling the world.
All I wanted was a job in the tourism industry. Then in 2008, while I was living in Cape Town, I was extremely unhappy about my low paid tourism job and the meagre 14 days of vacation so I decided that I needed to find a better way to make a living.
I decided to find an online job that would allow me to work from where I want and would pay me in Euros. I sat down and studied hard. Read hundreds of blog posts and got myself a job as a virtual assistant so I could get paid while studying topics that really interested me.
It took me four months to quit my job and become location independent and two more years to perfect the one thing that I’m still doing now: Promoting niche products on the internet with paid marketing.
Then in 2010, after a finished relationship, I wanted to get out of Cape Town go and explore the world and see places I’d never been before. I thought if I could work from abroad in Cape Town why not when I was travelling? I’d had loads of experience on the road in the past so I thought it wouldn’t be much of a problem.
One thing that really surprised me was that I met hardly anyone else who was working and travelling. There are hundreds of thousands of Translators, Webdesigners, and Programmers … who could easily work from anywhere. Where were they?
So I had the idea to start a guide of the best workation/digital nomad spots from around the world (because there’s so much more to see than Bali & Chiang Mai) and started this site which now focouses a lot more info on the entrie lifestyle instead of just destinations.
Anyway, I hope the info here helps you to learn everything you need to eventually come to the point when you tell yourself: Yes I can do this and book the flight (if you haven’t done it already).
Let me know how it goes!
