The thrill of travel and the method of working can be one of the hardest balances to strike. Some of us make the time and budget to escape work; some of us better structure our travel with a to-do list. Our own editor Danielle confesses: “sometimes I prefer to combine work and travel; to get away from my daily life without foregoing a daily routine.” With a growing number of travel-related jobs, and the onset of the “digital nomad” lifestyle, we want to know where you fall on the spectrum — how do you make the most of vacations? How do you get the most work done in a traveling pinch?
This Thursday, Mar. 3 at 2pm ET, we’ll be chatting about our best work-travel practices with well-seasoned co-hosts:
Valerie of Valerie & Valise (@valerie_valise): blogger, solo traveler
Annie Ojile of Scooteroma (@scooteromatours): tour operator and Vespa guide
