Start Here

Thinking of becoming a pro traveller and creating a lifestyle that enables you to travel more? Sounds a bit over the top I know but then again who doesn’t want to travel more!

After leaving school to start work at 16 it took me 10 years to decide I wanted to travel more. It’s not that my life was bad or it was time to run away, but a change of scenery every now and again can do most of us the world of good.

I’m don’t think its just me having these thoughts either – the most common questions I get asked by others is ‘how do I travel so much?’ and “how can I do it too!?”

For those just starting out it can be hard to know where to begin.

Depending on how you play the game it can also be an expensive pastime. Yet it doesn’t have to be. Many long-term travellers I’ve met use a combination of different skills to allow them to travel more, and like most skills – you get better the more you use them.

This page is a good place to start because it may answer some of the questions you have about travelling and life on the road.
