Work, travel, adventures!
Love to travel....have great adventures.... not able or willing to give up work .....but also don't want to work on a permanent basis?
Some time ago Wendy and I changed our lifestyle and decided to block our time - for work and for other things. For us it is a great balance - here's some highlights:
For us work is important, we need an income, but we also want to contribute to the communities we're part of or visiting. Here's some of the work we do:
The aim is to find the balance that makes us happy.
You can find out how we manage this lifestyle, where we've been, and what we've done ... just click on the read more links below on whichever location takes your fancy.
If you go to the About Pat page there's a bit more information about how we practically do things. I add to this when we have new ideas.
I've also included a specific page on house sitting which is a great way to save on accommodation costs.
It would be great to hear your thoughts or comments, so please contact me.
