    Hello,

    Has anyone been travelling whilst freelancing?

    How did you cope with work and experiencing the place?

    Would you recommend and do you have any tips?

    It can be done but you have to be organized and plan ahead. For example, what I like to do is work in the morning and then use the afternoon/night to explore the place where I am. For that to work, however, you need to plan your work in a way that this schedule will allow you to get everything done. If you plan a huge launch or something, chances are that you will be stuck to your computer for much longer. So, it's about anticipating these kinds of things.

    I also use times of commute for work. For example, when I am on a train, I will make sure I have all the information, files, tools, etc. I need on there so I can work offline for a while (not all trains have good Internet). This way, I can use time that I would have usually spent sitting around to get some stuff done. That way, I don't have to spend that time at my new location.

    In the end, it's all about setting boundaries where work ends and pleasure begins. It takes some practice but can be very rewarding once you get the hang of it.
