Roundup: How to Travel Full-Time, and Reach Your Goals

An (almost) deserted island in the BVIs

 

 

After sailing and cooking in the BVIs for a week, I made my way back to St Martin to rejoin the boat “Sophisticated Lady” – along with Lucky the parrot and the Ambient Real Life video crew.

 

Then I hopped over to yet another sailboat (living on boats is a lifestyle that evolves very easily with a little networking!) to enjoy the French side of St Martin, along with the wind and waves which are perfect for activities like paragliding, paddle boarding, and kite surfing. Oh yes, and perfecting a rosy sunburn or three.

 

But my time on boats is quickly coming to an end; terra firma calls in the form of a few friends in Florida I’d like to visit before my inevitable return to Grenada in March.

 

My month of January – which included time in Grenada, St Martin, and the BVIs – cost me under $600 to live – all in. Want to know my secrets to full-time travel (with loads of resources and links)? Check out my article below on How to Travel Full-Time for $17,000 per Year (or Less).

 

And if full-time travel is still a pipe dream, check out my article on maintaining the discipline to reach your goals; you’ll get there!

And the most recent issue of The Caretaker Gazette – one of my favourite resources for finding free accommodation around the world – featured my travel lifestyle, and the various positions I’ve found around the world through them (in Hawaii, Australia, and Grenada). The only way to see the article though – is to subscribe! If you’re thinking of volunteering and traveling around the world, though, I highly recommend it. (And no, I don’t get a commission if you subscribe! I just like it that much.)
