Life was nice and easy in the US for Rachael and Josh. Then, Josh’s employers gave him the opportunity to work abroad – in Dakar, Senegal to be exact. Rachael being a freelance writer/photographer made the decision to move that much easier. So, they packed up their belongings, including two dogs and headed off to Africa, where they will reside for the next couple of years.

    Great! I am so happy to see people travel the world and have new experiences. Travel helps people to undestand more about different cultures and it also reduces stress (you know from being a slave to the 9-7 job).

    Everyone I know that has ever lived and worked overseas has loved it. You really get to understand the culture of a country when you have the opportunity to live there. I want my boss to send me to Thailand, I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

    It’s nice to have the opportunity to work in the country that you like. Now more and more people are using work on the Internet, to become independent from the workplace. For example, my wife and I plan to soon move to the island of Bali from Russia.

      The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.

      Naomi, David and their two sons are ‘on a slow roam around the world’. Though both successful, David didn’t want his children to view him as the dad who was always working. So, with the business and house sold, possessions relocated – the four set off to explore. Their style of travel allows them to live/work in comfort while spending quality time with Lucas and Easy (Ezekiel).

      In 2008, the Annison family moved from the UK to New Zealand and bought a boat. In 2010, they upgraded to a camper van to explore the country. Though the cats stay home to help the elder son with the yard work and house, the remainder of the family (including the dogs) traverse the open roads of Kiwidom, searching for hidden treasures.
