Maybe these 27 photos will help to inspire those of you who are teetering on the idea of quitting your job and becoming a digital nomad or full-time traveller, and if you’re already living the laptop lifestyle, then these pictures may just remind you of how lucky you are.

  1. Hi Goats!
    You guys are such inspirations to us. We are aspiring to be like you and live the life that you guys do! We are well on our way but still finding our ground to stay motivated to write and finding the balance to work and play. Slowly but surely.

    Thanks! Keep living.

  2. Hey guys, thanks for the comment! That’s great to hear that you’re going to be living the digital nomad lifestyle. It can be hard for sure to find a balance, but once you find that sweet spot, it’s amazing 🙂

    Keep it up!


  3. I love the Indonesia pic!
    What’s your favorite free gift from tourist boards been? I assume it’s mostly free flights/lodging and free experiences?

    (I hit send too quickly, apologies)

  5. Hey Todd!

    We’ve only worked with two tourism boards in the past, which usually give a nice little welcome package with books, wine, etc. But having lodging covered and tours that we want to do paid for is probably the best perk. It’s also great to get to meet the people behind the businesses! It’s all part of the fun 🙂


  6. If it were really so easy to get free flights, free luxury hotel rooms, and sit around on the beach all day, everyone would be doing it.

  7. You guys are such an inspiration! I am currently working up the courage to quit my job and travel the world. Only thing stopping me is I have my son (who is almost 2) with me. We have travelled the world together so far and he loves it. Any tips or comments about world traveling with a kid and still being able to sustain life?

  8. This actually gave me goosebumps! You two are the reason that I’m working my butt of to be able to head of and hopefully travel indefinitely. Keep up the good work!

  9. I’m not a digital nomad yet working on it. You guys have inspired me. Love the pic of sailing in the Caribbeans.

  10. This is definitely a very inspiring post, thank you very much! And a right profession – beside that I can thank many of my trips to being a singer and dancer.
    I can’t treally tell what is my favorite part of the job: seeing new places, taking photos and processing & sharing them, performing to new audiences in the world and watch how they react to Hungarian folk songs, learning languages, the freedom to do whatever I want to do – I love it all.
    Have fun guys!

  11. Hi Anitra!

    Thanks for the comment. That’s great that you’ve been travelling the world with your young son, good for you! I would suggest going for it. We know of many couples that travel full time with their children.
