The Working Traveller Takes it Slow in Thailand

It has been a while since we were last on the road. Unlike some digital nomads we only travel part time but, then - despite the impression sometimes given - so do the majority of people who make their living with a laptop and an internet connection.

A new travel blog

Our New Site:

We hope you enjoyed your New Year celebrations. With a lot still to do before we are ready to leave for Bangkok we had a quiet one this year. One of the tasks I wanted to complete is the launch of our new site

This is the fourth website we have launched with minimal fanfare since we returned from our Middle East trip 18 months ago. Like the others we want this one to go quietly about its business and eventually establish itself into the site we want it to be in a few years’ time.

A Quick Look Behind the Scenes of our Recent Trip to Bodrum, Plus a Preview of a Hotel That Will Soon be Offering Spa Jobs in Turkey

One of the perks of running a group of work abroad and travel websites is that we possess things travel businesses want. And they have things that we need and desire.

Travelling along the Tonle Sap in Cambodia

The Working Traveller is heading to Southeast Asia

We booked our ticket to Bangkok online with only moderate swearing a couple of weeks ago and on January 9 we will be winging our way to Thailand. As I write this I’m doing the flying to Thailand dance, a joyful but slightly unseemly jig for rhythmless men advancing in years.Read More
