How To Travel The World With A Full-Time Job

Travel

Traveling with a full-time job can seem like a hard task to pull off. But, with the right planning and a litttle courage, seeing the world and holding down full-time is certainly not impossible.


I may not be living the nomad lifestyle I sometimes dream of, but I constantly seek ways to sprinkle bits of travel in wherever I can. Last year, I took my first solo trip to Los Angeles, road-tripped to Washington D.C, cruised around the Caribbean hitting St. Maarten, Puerto Rico, and Haiti, then ended the summer with a second trip to LA with a stop in Las Vegas.

In the past, the travel tips I've been given include: taking advantage of long weekends, using your PTO, and traveling around holidays. These are helpful tips but I didn't feel they were action-driven enough. So, to take my travel game to a new level while balancing a full-time job, I decided to connect with my favorite millennials whose travels have been major sources of inspiration for me to really learn the how of traveling with a full-time job.

Below, they share the tips that work for them in hopes that those who want to travel more don't feel inhibited by their full-time gigs.

1.Make Sacrifices If Travel Is A Priority

Nicolette (@nicolette.delmar) shares her travel journeys on her Instagram. Her YouTube video of her experience in Belize captured my attention instantly. Recently, she visited Malaysia, made her second trip to Thailand, and has plans to visit Mexico in a few weeks. I asked Nicolette how she prioritizes her trips while maintaining a grasp on her full-time job. Her answer was simple:

You have to make sure that you truly put travel as a top priority. That means buying groceries instead of eating out, staying in sometimes instead of going to the bar, and any other means of saving money. Also, traveling doesn't mean you have to be away for weeks at a time! Even weekend trips driving or flying for a few hours is worth it if it means you're exploring somewhere you haven't been before.

What 14 People Say 'Great Sex' Means To Them

What is the difference between bad, average, and great sex? If I ask thirty people this question, I would get thirty different answers. As someone who's had their fair share of both good and not-so-good sex, I understand that there is no one size fits all answer to this question. "Great sex" can mean different things to different people. Case in point, I once had an amazing sexual experience with a guy that a mutual “friend” had a horrible experience with. Great sex is subjective AF! According to the mutual friend his sex was subpar at best. One person’s trash is another one’s treasure. Great sex boils down to what is good for you and your partner at the moment. No two people are the same so no two sexual experiences will be the same either.
