TRAVEL THE WORLD
If you’re like most people, you’ve felt the urge to quit your job and travel the world. Yet recently, as careers have shifted and remote work has become more and more of a realistic option, our collective dream of world travel has shifted. Today, we all want to travel the world and get paid for it.
Still, few have cracked the code to getting paid to travel in a sustainable manner, but for those who have, the benefits are infinite. Those people who have figured it out are the people we’re interested in here, and those are the people you’ll learn about all over How I Travel.
For example, how is Pete, the founder of both Bucketlistly and Travelistly, able to grow his companies and run a design agency while exploring the national parks of Thailand, hiking through Switzerland, and hanging out in Berlin?
How did Mishie, a former risk manager turned professional hula hooper, flip the rat race on its head and quit her job to travel the world?
Or how did Gareth, Africa’s top Instagrammer, go from being a no-name photographer to one committed to going to space?
Luckily for you, the answers are all here.
But there’s even more to How I Travel than the unique stories behind the world’s most interesting travelers. We dig deep – really deep – into what’s going on in cities and places all around the world to discover what’s new and relevant for travelers exploring the world of today and tomorrow, not the world of yesterday.. We cringe at the thought of being outdated; instead, we’re the first mover, documenting the ever-changing global landscape in real time.
It’s our commitment to being up-to-date and relevant that has us obsessing over things like 11 cool places to go this summer (#1 is a can’t-miss!), the 9 most creative cities of 2016, the 15 coolest neighbourhoods in the world, and 13 off-the-beaten-path destinations to check out this summer. And when you’re finally ready to make the jump, you can read through our Ultimate Guide to Packing for International Travel and the 9 Best Travel Tools of 2016 to make sure you’re more than prepared for your brand new lifestyle. You won’t find content this timely and relevant anywhere else.
So whether you’re from Toronto or Cape Town, whether you identify more as an architect or a storyteller, or whether you prefer luxury camping or just enjoying an ice cold beer, there’s one thing we all have in common here: you want to quit your job and travel the world. How I Travel is exactly the community to get you there.
Immerse yourself in the world of our world-renowned travel connoisseurs and you’ll be amazed at how easy some of these life-changing transitions are to make. Heck – in a few months’ time you just might be traveling the world and getting paid for it yourself! When that happens – and it will if you spend enough time with us – don’t forget to say hi, okay?
