WELCOME! WE ARE CARLO & FLORENCE...

…a couple from the west of Ireland who quit our 9 to 5’s with the intention of creating an online business that would allow us to travel the world and break free from the everyday grind.

We’ve got our country count up to 66+ over the past 5.5 years and we’ve created 3 successful online businesses that allow us to work and play from anywhere in the world. This website is where we document our stories, the destinations we visit and our journey in figuring it all out.

WHAT TO DO IN JERUSALEM

Jerusalem was a very interesting city to say the least! We spent 4 days in the city and 2 days in Bethlehem which is just a short bus ride away. We had looked to do the free walking tour but the group was huge and we abanded it after about 20 minutes of struggling to hear the guide.

LET’S TALK BUSINESS

Regardless of what some may say, travelling for more than a few weeks at a time ain’t cheap (unless you want to live in dorm rooms and eat the cheapest thing you can find). We wanted to travel but we didn’t want to be tied to living on a tight budget as that just doesn’t sound like a lot of fun to us. And while we had savings, it wasn’t enough to keep us on the road for very long.

So we eagerly searched online for some way to make money to fund our travels and that’s when we stumbled into freelance writing. We gave it a go and we were making money within days of starting out.

Almost 5.5 years later and we have three online businesses that bring us in 6 figures a year and we can travel wherever and whenever we like.

All we need is our laptops and a decent internet connection and we can work from practically anywhere in the world.

Why are we telling you this? Because the most common questions we get asked are “how can you guys afford to travel so much?” and “how do you actually make money?

So we want to share our story and some practical tips with our readers in the hope that we can inspire others who are looking to live a similar lifestyle (whether it involves travel or not) to achieve their own goals.
