We decided to quit our jobs and travel while we're young and free. Now we travel full time while working online. Already visited 74 countries, and we keep moving! We do it as we can, and we don't like labels. We try everything from couch surfing to hostels, sharing our room with dozens of strangers, and we even enjoyed beautiful luxury all-inclusive hotels as well.
We've been hosted in Zimbabwe, Kenya, Tanzania, and Zambia at houses without electricity and water, took showers with a cup of water that came from the local river. We hitchhiked and took public transportations, taking 18-hour buses and trains at night to reach some destinations, for example, in India. We rented cars and motorhomes in the US, South Africa, and Ireland, enjoying a comfortable ride. And sometimes we could even fly with the best airlines in the world, like when we went to Dubai!
But not everything turns out ok all the time. We had food poisoning in Laos and a double ankle and foot fracture in Egypt. We kept traveling as we could. We are flexible and experiment a lot while traveling. We love everything from a humbling local experience eating rice for weeks to enjoying a good wine with cheese in western Europe.
We just like to travel. Period. It does not matter how, but it's our priority. We are not wealthy, neither can our families support us — we're just a simple couple from a remote country called Argentina. We manage to keep traveling while working online.
Our tip to you is to keep traveling, despite what people might say. Fears are not real. You can go alone, and it is not impossible to do it cheaply.
Enjoy. Labels don't exist. Surround yourselves with positive people that believe in your crazy dreams of wandering around the world. Some people laughed at us when we decided to quit our good jobs to travel. Now they are the ones that ask us how to do it and need advice about the destinations that we already visited. See you on the road!
