6 inspirational websites to get you exploring

I love to travel, it’s one of my passions.

After a company-wide redundancy in 2003 I decided to travel overseas.  The 8 months I spent traveling through South East Asia and Europe opened my eyes to what is possible. It made me realize what amazing adventures people were having both working and traveling.

One of my ultimate goals in becoming a freelance writer is to have the freedom to incorporate travel and writing.  Not just as a travel writer but as a business owner who can work from any location (as long as there is an Internet  connection naturally).  Whilst my plan is in its early stage, I find inspiration reading about people who have already taken amazing steps to make this a reality.

Here are 6 websites/blogs I have discovered to date for my work/travel inspiration.

Chris Guillebeau – The Art of Non-Conformity

The name of Chris’s blog says it all.  Love it!  I definitely do not fit into the mold set by other people my age.  If you are craving something different, this is a good place to start.

Location Independent

I have seen this website mentioned a bit around the Internet. If you plan on working abroad this is definitely a website you should be looking into.

Rolf Potts – Vagabonding

Vagabonding by Rolf Potts is one of my favorite books.  Every once in a while you come across a book that you can really resonate with – for me this was one of those books. Check out his website.

Brooke Ferguson – The Business Backpacker

This is a new find. I will definitely be exploring this blog more over the next couple of weeks.

Untemplater – Shatter the template lifestyle

I only recently discovered this website, so I still have a lot to explore.  Enjoying what I read so far!  The post 40 Young Bloggers who will get you excited to shatter the template lifestyle has a lot of interesting blogs to uncover.

Pamela Slim’s book Escape From Cubicle Nation is a great read.  It won’t tell you how to work your way around the world but it will help you break free of your cubicle or whatever is holding you back.  I spotted this book in an airport bookstore and snapped it up.

Happy exploring!
