The Social Nomad Lifestyle

Some people “holiday”.  They work hard all year, and take a week or two off to relax and recuperate.

Holidays are great, I love them, but I don’t remember the last time I took one.

I do travel all the time, even around London, but I don’t know the last time I had a holiday.  I live in different places in this city, depending on where I get the best deal, usually through AirBnB. I don’t  have a contract, and I can leave when I like.

This does have a number of drawbacks, like moving my stuff around London every few months, but I don’t have much stuff here, and it means I don’t have to pay rent when I leave the city.

The world is changing.  The way we work is changing, and so is the way we holiday.  Some of us don’t have to go to a specific place to work any more, and we can pretty much work from anywhere with an internet connection.

So how do you holiday from work, when work can holiday with you?  You make a choice – you either take a holiday and switch off from work, or you do what I do, and you make your travels and work part of your lifestyle.
