7 Reasons Why Working Abroad Is the Best Way to Travel (and How to Do It)

You see it every day on Instagram, a news article, or Facebook…

Someone traveling the world—posing at impossibly perfect beaches on an island you never heard of, so beautiful, you’ve only seen them in movies, or meandering ancient temples in Indonesia and Cambodia…

Pack Light

The less luggage you carry, the less cash you’ll have to shell out for checked baggage fees or even large carry-ons. Some airlines charge as much as $35 for anything bigger than a daypack in the cabin. Nearly all of them charge for a checked bag. If you can fit everything you need for your 2-, 6- or 12-month jaunt in one large backpack, great! If you can fit it in one small daypack and an oversized jacket full of pockets, even better!
