Don’t Date A Girl Who Travels

To all my -especially- female friends.

I found this article and video about girls who travel on lovethesearch.com.
I am not sure, if I like the title, but this is what I am and live right now.

And while I am watching it, I am inspired and become hungry to explore more of this beautiful world.

And here is the amazing video, created by the lyrics below:

Don’t date a girl who travels
She’s the one with the messy unkempt hair colored by the sun. Her skin is now far from fair like it once was. Not even sun kissed. It’s burnt with multiple tan lines, wounds and bites here and there. But for every flaw on her skin, she has an interesting story to tell.

Don’t date a girl who travels. She is hard to please. The usual dinner-movie date at the mall will suck the life out of her. Her soul craves for new experiences and adventures. She will be unimpressed with your new car and your expensive watch. She would rather climb a rock or jump out of an airplane than hear you brag about it.

Don’t date a girl who travels because she will bug you to book a flight every time there’s an airline seat sale. She wont party at Republiq. And she will never pay over $100 for Avicii because she knows that one weekend of clubbing is equivalent to one week somewhere far more exciting.

Chances are, she can’t hold a steady job. Or she’s probably daydreaming about quitting. She doesn’t want to keep working her ass off for someone else’s dream. She has her own and is working towards it. She is a freelancer. She makes money from designing, writing, photography or something that requires creativity and imagination. Don’t waste her time complaining about your boring job.

Don’t date a girl who travels. She might have wasted her college degree and switched careers entirely. She is now a dive instructor or a yoga teacher. She’s not sure when the next paycheck is coming. But she doesn’t work like a robot all day, she goes out and takes what life has to offer and challenges you to do the same.

Don’t date a girl who travels for she has chosen a life of uncertainty. She doesn’t have a plan or a permanent address. She goes with the flow and follows her heart. She dances to the beat of her own drum. She doesn’t wear a watch. Her days are ruled by the sun and the moon. When the waves are calling, life stops and she will be oblivious to everything else for a moment. But she has learned that the most important thing in life isn’t surfing.

Don’t date a girl who travels as she tends to speak her mind. She will never try to impress your parents or friends. She knows respect, but isn’t afraid to hold a debate about global issues or social responsibility.

She will never need you. She knows how to pitch a tent and screw her own fins without your help. She cooks well and doesn’t need you to pay for her meals. She is too independent and wont care whether you travel with her or not. She will forget to check in with you when she arrives at her destination. She’s busy living in the present. She talks to strangers. She will meet many interesting, like-minded people from around the world who share her passion and dreams. She will be bored with you.

So never date a girl who travels unless you can keep up with her. And if you unintentionally fall in love with one, don’t you dare keep her.
Let her go.

For the girls? Does this inspire? Can you probably identifiy yourself or is it just a faraway dream for you? Would you say, as atravelling girl it’s not possible to have a relationship?

And for the men? Is it deterring to meet a girl like that?
I would really to know about your opinion.

I thought I am ready now for a relationship, but I know I will go on with travelling for the next years. So is it possible to have a partner then?

Hmm, I have to think about it. Hope you can help me. 🙂

Working on the beach

Working on the beach

Beach Office Time! Being a beacher means more than just holidays and relaxation. Sometimes you also have to work.

But nowadays there are more options than ever to work from wherever you want. So why not work where it’s simply the nicest: on the beach. Of course you have to bear a couple of things in mind.

You need:

1. Discipline to work in a place where others are having their holidays.

2. A good internet connection – you shouldn’t rely on having a good WLAN connection anywhere close. In many areas the internet connection is either bad or non-existent. So it’s best to inform yourself beforehand, or to get a SIM card for your smartphone or tablet when you arrive. These are really cheap and you can get them everywhere.

3. Suitable technical equipment, like a laptop, tablet or smartphone.

4. Helpful software, which are indispensable for freelancers and the nomadic life – like Skype, Dropbox, Evernote and many other helpful project management and collaboration apps.

5. And finally, you need a pleasant and quiet place where you work without being disturbed – like under an umbrella, tent or in a nice beach cafe.

Nomad freelance lifestyle

Working from anywhere.

After one year working on my objective, to start a nomad lifestyle,
I could change now my job as a freelancer and focus on online marketing. Especially on social media.

Before, I worked as a project manager for agencies or companies on-site.
And you have always to be there, totally involved in their office and daily business.
With my shift to online marketing I can work now more or less from everywhere.
You need a lot of discipline, but can mostly work when ever you like and from wherever you like.
Here for example one of my favorite spots: my sunny balcony. 🙂
Working in my hammock with my palm next to me during the summer time is a good alternative to one of my several beach offices I already used.

Work-life haven: why entrepreneurs and digital nomads are settling in Bali

One more reason to start changing your working habits and (home) office to create a better and more handsome place to work.
Even if you are a freelancer, you can use a wide community of startups, entrepreneurs and digital nomads to share ideas, opinitions and working expierences.
And who wouldn’t love to work on Bali?!

“I’ve never been as productive as I have been living in Bali. There’s an opportunity here to access yoga, healthy food and fresh air that’s more difficult to come by in a city. It’s a place people come to get perspective on their lives… a unique opportunity to get perspective and focus.”

Bali, with its tropical climate, laid-back lifestyle, beaches, jungles and cheap beer, has long been a holiday-maker’s paradise. The ‘Island of the Gods’, a province of Indonesia, is a popular playground and place of reflection for Australian, Asian and, since Julia Roberts had a mid-life crisis on its shores in Eat Pray Love, American travelers. In recent years, the very reasons for the island’s booming tourist trade have also made it an attractive place to do business from. Bright, driven folk striking out on their own have realized they can live and work in paradise, rather than…
