How We Work Online Full-Time While Traveling + 7 Helpful Tips For Digital Nomads

Tips for working online while travelling: protect yourself on the web at or use code ‘exploringalternatives’ and save 77%!

We’ve been working online while traveling for over 4 years now doing a variety of work, including project management, freelance graphic design and video editing, and creating our YouTube channel.

When we started, we had no idea what to expect from the digital nomad lifestyle, or how it worked. We didn’t know what gear we’d need, where we’d find WiFi, and I didn’t even know how to use Gmail properly. It was a steep learning curve!

But after doing online work all over the place, from Canada to Costa Rica, from Iceland to Germany, and from the USA to Spain – we’ve learned A LOT.

In this video we’re sharing some of our best tips to make it easier to earn a living (and an income) while you travel, or on the road in a camper van. We talk about how to stay focussed and comfortable, where we find wifi, co-working spaces, how we back up our files, how we protect ourselves when using unsecured public wifi networks, our gear, and a lot more.

If you’re interested in working online but you haven’t found an online job yet, we made a separate video with tips for finding online jobs. You can check it out here:
