Pack and Go: How to Stay Mobile and Move Home on a Regular Basis Travel

Pack, Travel and Go

Some people just can’t stay still in one spot. They love to move, they love to meet new people and they love to travel. However, as exciting and refreshing as it can be, it also comes with a lot of responsibilities and challenges. In this article, we’ll be giving you some great advice on how you can live an almost-nomadic lifestyle while still keeping some important creature comforts.

 

Find a way to support yourself on the go

Pack and Go: How to Stay Mobile and Move Home on a Regular Basis

The best way to get income is obviously through a job, but not all employers would be willing to let you work remotely. A good alternative is to simply work freelance. The income is a lot more volatile but it’s got flexible work hours and you can usually work anywhere as long as you have a laptop.

The alternative is to get used to finding places to work no matter where you move to. Local job listings are a great place to start, just keep in mind that you’re not going to net yourself a high-paying job if you can’t commit. You’ll likely be forced to work very simple jobs such as in supermarkets or restaurants, and you’ll need to let your employer know that you’re only planning on working with them for a short time before you move again.

Always do your research before you move

Moving to a new place is exciting, but it’s also risky if you aren’t sure of what you’re getting yourself into. Make sure you do some research into an area and look for places to stay, look at what the local job listings are like and try to line yourself up with a position before you even move.

Another good place to do some research is with removal companies. Depending on what city or state you plan to move to, you could do with finding services like this website that will help you transport your goods. Of course, this isn’t necessary if you don’t have many belongings (something you should strive for if you want to stay mobile) but it’s always good to do your research and look for services that can help you out.

Learn to be more social

It’s always more fun when you can quickly make friends. A great way to do this is to actually look for roommates instead of your own apartment or home. They can help you unpack your stuff, they can introduce you to their friends and they can generally make things easier for you thanks to their knowledge of the local area. Being social is a great skill to have if you plan to travel a lot, but it does come with some downsides.

You can do this by simply talking more often, When you move to a new area, get to know the people around you by chatting whenever you see them or even inviting them out for a meal. You’ll eventually have to say goodbye to these friends if you decide to move, but there’s nothing wrong with adding them to social media and keeping up with them.
