5 Reasons I Didn’t Enjoy Teaching In Korea

If you’ve ever googled “working abroad,” you’ve almost certainly come across teaching positions in South Korea. The online job boards are always full of available positions, the pay is good, and the benefits include cheap healthcare and a year-end bonus. Usually, the only qualification needed is a bachelor’s degree in anything. A year out of college, I took one of those jobs posted online and moved across the world to the small city of Donghae-si. Based on every article and blog post I’d read ab...

How to Add a Travel Career Break to Your Resume

The idea of taking a career gap to travel – especially mid-career rather than at the beginning – has conjured up negative assumptions among employers. Sometimes taking a career gap can create the illusion that the individual in question is trying to ‘escape’ or is ‘taking a step back’. While employers’ attitudes towards career break travel are changing, some of these misconceptions still linger. As career-break travelers, we need to be the ones to start showing how this unique personal developme...

Conflict Transformation vs. Transformational Travel

In my life, I have been blessed to be able to study abroad, work abroad and to travel extensively overseas. I’ve been a TEFL instructor, a tour guide and a study abroad director. I have experienced the ins and outs of the food and beverage industry on several continents. I’ve backpacked Europe and traveled alone in the Middle East. All of these experiences have the power to transform an individual. I like to refer to them as ‘transformational travel.’ However, there is one form of ‘transformatio...

The Aimless Twenty-Something Life: A Postgrad’s Tale of Travel & Taking Control

In May 2011, I was sitting across from four editors in the startlingly modern private boardroom of the Chronicle Herald newspaper in west end Halifax, Nova Scotia. I’d prepared for this job interview all week. The Herald isn’t an especially well-regarded publication (it’s locally nicknamed “The Chronically Horrid”), but holds the distinction of being one of Canada’s oldest daily papers, and the largest of the nation’s few remaining independent ones. I would love to work there. Beard trimmed and ...

New gap year program for adults

Gap years aren’t just for wayward college graduates anymore. Now any Canadian or Australian under 35 with a sense of wanderlust can escape reality for a few months, and travel halfway across the world. Australians would go to Canada, and vice versa. Each backpacker will take part in a ‘working holiday’ to broaden horizons, build life experiences, and strengthen cultural relationships. The Working Holiday Maker program gives backpackers temporary work visas in their new country, as well as the...

Why a Travel Break Can Be the Best Career Move You’ll Ever Make

Career breaks and sabbaticals have finally been gaining steam in countries like the United States, where even as recently as a decade ago they were thought of as career suicide. Organizations like Meet, Plan, Go! are at the forefront of these changes, inspiring people who think a career break couldn’t possibly work for them. No matter what your personal situation is at this time, there is always a reason not to embark on a drastic life change like this. It’s scary, frightening, and it’s easy to ...

15 of the Best Expat Blogs

Of all the entertaining varieties of travel blogs out there, there’s one category that sets itself apart in a way that I find most appealing – and that’s the expat blog. I’m a wannabe expat myself, so clearly that’s part of the draw for me, but I also think the way an expat approaches blogging is inherently different from any other travel blogger. In fact, many of them wouldn’t even consider themselves travel bloggers, and there’s a good reason for that.   It’s because they’re not.   Being an ex...

Why Olomouc Should Be Your Next Digital Nomad Destination

When you think about the Czech Republic, your mind probably springs to Prague’s iconic Charles Bridge or the cheap beer which attracts hordes of tourists and stag and hen parties every year, or Brno’s famous phallus-shaped astronomical clock. However, another city may be firmly planting itself on the digital nomad map. Prague, not surprisingly, is the Czech Republic’s digital nomad hotspot, followed by Brno (according to NomadList). But the country’s sixth city – Olomouc – is quickly becoming in...

How to Buy Your Freedom to Travel

Life as an undergraduate student was so thrilling to me. Every few months the course catalogue would contain dozens of possibilities for the next session of challenging learning, and those classes – successfully accomplished – would unlock dozens of future study opportunities. It was an all-you-can-eat buffet for an intellectual hunger that, for me, was insatiable. The only limiters were time and funding. Those limiters extended to adulthood, when the course catalogue of life expands logarithmic...

Get a job and move to Japan

If you’ve ever dreamed of living in Japan but have that pesky little issue of not being a citizen, all hope is not lost. As someone who went through these steps, I can attest that it’s not as difficult as you may think to move to Japan. Yes, the easiest way to move to Japan would be to fall in love with a Japanese resident, lock that resident down, and create a love child, but this could take years and requires skills of flirtation that we all simply don’t have. So let’s stick with the second ...

How to get a job and move to Ireland

On my first visit to Ireland in 2010, I fell head over heels for this country. The friendly locals, the music, the pubs, the landscapes, the beer — everything about it spoke to me. While moving to Ireland took a little work (and a little time), I now find myself here a year and a half and still loving every minute of it. If you need some help demystifying the process, take it from someone who has been there: it is possible and it is worth it! How to get a job and move to Ireland: 1. Are yo...

Digital Nomads and the Remote Work Revolution: Happier People, Better Business

Find job and move to Spain

10 tips for finding a job in the holiday industry

All-inclusive resort entertainment team members, cruise staff, and Club Med “G.Os” have a reputation of “getting paid to have fun.” After all, they’re the ones who make you do things like get your reggaeton on in the morning, do an obstacle course just as you’re about to lie down on the beach, and compete with them in beer chugging competitions. As a former resort entertainer, I can say that the job is not as easy as it looks, but there are definitely a lot of fun aspects and lots of rewards. ...

My new job in an eco-village

Now I live in an eco-village on a volcano, in the middle of a lake in Nicaragua. I was working as a software engineer at a robotics startup in Florida when I got laid off.

Why are so many digital nomads becoming “e-Residents” of Estonia?

What is Estonian e-Residency and how do digital nomads benefit? Estonian e-Residency has been a hot topic in the digital nomad community over recent years. The small northern European nation of Estonia became the first place in the world to offer digital residency in 2014. It means anyone can base their finances and businesses there, no matter which countries they actually live and work. Estonian e-Residency is great for digital nomads who need a location-independent business, but also want t...

6 Great Places to Move Abroad

With zero responsibilities in my life (no job, no mortgage, no one to look after besides myself), a burning desire for adventure and need to explore the world, it would've been the perfect time to pack it all up and hit the road. Unfortunately, I wasn't born with a trust fund nor did I have a stash of cash to fund this endeavor. Instead I had with 15 bucks in my bank account and a heap of ...
