More Working Abroad Posts in The Working Traveller in 2014

It is a new year and, though we aren’t one for resolutions, the replacement of one calendar with another usually gets us thinking about the direction in which our sites are going. Once the holidays are out of the way new projects can begin and neglected and overdue tasks are tackled. Read More

Merry Christmas. Enjoy These Repeats 2013

This is now the fourth Christmas we have celebrated as editors of The Working Traveller and we have as little intention of being original or hard working on this day as we did in 2012, 2011 and 2010. This means once again we are keeping to the tradition of repeats so loved by TV channels over the festive period. In this way we can scoff loads of roast potatoes, punish the brandy and fall asleep in front of the TV in garish knitwear.Read More

The Working Traveller is Three Years Old – Here’s What We’ve Learnt

On Wednesday, May 15 The Working Traveller turned three. Last year we took some time for reflection on what we had learnt in the first two years of The Working Traveller but the piece got rather long so it was split into two. Rather than place two such introspective pieces close together I thought to run part two close to our third anniversary, this having the added advantage of giving me a day off when this date came around again this year: up there for thinking, down there for dancing, as they say.Read More

Travel Blogging Until They Die

Others peter out when the journey ends, real jobs are taken and lifestyles change. There are many reasons why a blog started today will be neglected and end but some travel bloggers are in it for the long term. Here’s our take on the most popular travel blogs in 2050.Read More
