Not to be confused with expats, digital nomads have complete freedom to change locations at will but still maintain their job. Expats by definition is a foreigner, just like nomads but they are locked in a relatively confined location for a defined time.

This very website while just a year old, makes enough money to feed me plenty. Although it brings in far less than my “day job”, it takes up far more time. It’s because I don’t operate this site to get rich, but because my hearts in it and profit is just a nice byproduct.
This affords an indefinite location independent status where I just need periodic access to the internet.
My freelance consulting work often dictates which country or city to visit next. I only accept a handful of jobs per year but is most of my income.
Due to the confidential nature of this work, all I can say is that I consult law enforcement and certain types of agencies in matters that need consulting.
The only downside is that I can’t write about the experiences like I do with any other part of my travels, share photos or develop friendships with the locals or other travelers, which is my favorite part of the vagabonding lifestyle. A small price.
I used their products heavily all around the world for over a year with great satisfaction before any sort of relationship formed. So representing their brands is honest and a pleasure to do.
They send me whatever new gear they come out with or whatever I may need for my vagabonding lifestyle. In fact, the featured photo of this post was taken with a Hitcase Pro while wearing the sportHolster.

The ways I support my life as a vagabond may not be “9-to-5” or typical jobs but they are indeed for a lack of a better word, jobs. The most important difference is that they can be done anywhere at anytime.
It’s the modern vagabonding way.
