In a 2019 survey, 65 percent of respondents said they'd love to travel more and experience new things.

It's easy to see why. Traveling packs a range of benefits, from increased mental wellness to better self-confidence. But then traveling doesn't come cheap. And even if you can afford it, you're probably starved for time - you have a job to keep.

What if we told you that you can have the best of both worlds? Yes, you can work and still travel.

Ready to learn more?

Here's how to work remotely and travel the globe.

Find a Remote Job

You want to work remotely while traveling, right? So, if you have a regular 9-5 job, you need to give it up and find a remote gig.

You might have your doubts about transitioning, but it's a necessary step. Sure, you stand to lose your employer-sponsored insurance and many other benefits, but you always want to travel the globe. Something has to give.

Plus, remote work is the future. Over 50 percent of the U.S. workforce will soon be remote.

Now, how do you find a remote job?

Your first option is to ask your current employer for an opportunity to work remotely. An increasing number of employers across the country are embracing this model of work.

If there's no work-from-home opportunity, the next step is to find a remote job. You could become a freelance writer, for instance. Or if you've coding skills, there are thousands of coding gigs available every day.

Also, take tangible steps to improve your marketability. Creating a business card, for example, can go a long way toward marketing your remote skills. Check out this printable business cards if you need help creating one.

Assemble Your Travel Gear

After you have established yourself as a remote worker, you're now ready to begin exploring the world. Not so fast, though.

You need to assemble the right travel gear. You need a reliable computer, along with computer accessories that will make it easy for you to do your work. These include external hard drives, power adapters, mobile hotspot, back-up battery adapters, and global sim card.

When assembling your gear, pay attention to their usability across the world. When shopping for a power adapter, for example, ensure it's an international travel adapter with extra charging ports.

Working remotely while traveling the globe means living out of a backpack. You have to get used to traveling with minimal personal effects.

Map Out Your Travel Plan

Traveling the globe, for anyone, is easier said than done. There are often things beyond your control, such as visas, that can restrict where you can go.

This is why it's essential to map out your travel plan before you leave home. Which countries do you want to visit? What are their visa requirements? If a specific country requires you to have a visa or any other travel document, ensure you have it; otherwise, you'll be denied entry.

That's How to Work Remotely and Travel the Globe

Ask anyone what their dream is and they'll likely tell you they want to travel the globe. The only thing holding them back? Work!

With this guide on how to work remotely and travel the globe, you now know how to have the best of both worlds.

Good luck and bon voyage!
