Have you ever dreamed of leaving the 9-5 rat race, traveling the world as a digital nomad, finding yourself, and becoming a better person for the experience?
If so, read the book Eat, Pray, Love.
But if you’re in the mood for some random, irreverent tales about European adventures… Pull up a chair and stay a while!
My name is Keith.
I live and work remotely with my wife Rachael, moving to a new country every month.
If I’d know you were dropping by, I would’ve put on a tie.
This is a log of our journeys around Europe, sprinkled with some useful information about how to do it without breaking the bank, a leg, or losing your mind.
Essentially, we’re traveling Europe so you don’t have to.
And if you can’t learn from our mistakes, at least you can laugh at them.
My story in 30 seconds
After leaving Ireland in 2010, and working in countless Irish bars in NYC for 5 years, I started working as a copywriter at a startup in SoHo. But I got itchy feet after a year.
I needed to travel again. starting with The Camino de Santiago pilgrimage.
With a heavy heart, I gave my notice. My (smarter, less impulsive) Creative Director had another idea, though:
“What if you work remotely and travel too?”
Well. I hadn’t expected that. It seemed too good to be true.
Suddenly, I could literally get paid while I traveled around Europe.
I decided to write a blog of our travels and adventures for posterity.
‘Posterity‘ is the term writers use when they’re worried that no one will read their travel blog.
So, with little more than a suitcase, a laptop,
and a wife, my journey through Europe began, starting in Paris.
If there is one moral from my story, it’s this:
Quitters always prosper.
