I love coffee. I’ve been drinking it in one form or another since I was a teenager. And since I started traveling the world, I’ve been delighted to find it served in many different forms, accompanied by different customs and coffee drinking rituals.

Vietnamese coffee – my favourite brew

For example, on leaving North America, I discovered that their commonplace filtered coffee is considered to be little more than “dirty tap water” in many countries; often thought of as a downright abomination of this glorious brew. The idea of a “bottomless cup” of coffee as is served in many North American restaurants is a completely foreign concept in many other countries.

In parts of Asia, I had trouble finding much other than instant coffee (which I consider a downright abomination of even filtered coffee).

In Australia and New Zealand, it took me ages to figure out how to even order a cup of coffee. There’s the “flat white”, the “long black”, and various other incantations that took me a while to decipher.

Candice Walsh

Candice Walsh of FreeCandie.com is a freelance writer and blogger who is currently based in Berlin, Germany. She has been on the road in one form or another since 2010, and has figured out how to make a living no matter where she is. Learn more about her career and plans below.

 

How long have you been living/working on the road, and where have you traveled to?

I’ve been traveling for at least half the year since 2010, when I was laid off from my job. Up until August 2015 I used to live in St. John’s, Newfoundland as my base. Now I’m in Germany for the year. I’ve visited 30 countries total, and when I love a place I tend to stick around for awhile! I spend a good deal of time in Europe. I just can’t seem to get enough.

 

Please describe what you do for income.

I’m a writer, blogger, and social media manager. Most of my income comes from freelance writing for other outlets, as well as copywriting. Sometimes I sell guest posts on my blog, but not a whole lot. Copywriting is definitely my most successful income stream, and I charge $60/hour for my work.

I’ve barely scratched the surface of Peruvian ruins and historical sites, which are scattered not only throughout the Sacred Valley, but the entire country. But I’ve had occasion to visit the Peruvian ruins of Tipon a few times, and every time I go I’m amazed at this infrequently visited marvel in irrigation, energy, and beauty.

Tipon

Tipon is a 500-acre site near Cusco that is built around a spring. Although in many Peruvian ruins there is evidence of irrigation channels and constructions, Tipon is one of the only places where the irrigation system is still fully functional, with water flowing all year round (even in the dry season). In fact, Tipon has been touted as a masterpiece of water management, and the American Society of Civil Engineers has put Tipon on its list of International Historic Civil Engineering Landmarks.
