Gone with the wind!

So it looks like I’m going Location Independent for sure starting in October!

I’m starting off with a stint in Cancun for at least 3 months, but it may turn into 6 depending on how much I like it. Will be working during the weekdays and spending my weekends exploring the Yucatan and the surrounding coastline. After that I’ll be working my way down through Central America and eventually into South America.

In the meantime I’m remaining up in the High Country of Colorado spending the rest of the summer getting the necessary visas together, any shots I need for some of the countries down there, and generally just planning. I have no time frame or itinerary. Basically, I’m going to be taking my laptop, camera and necessary clothes and going on an extended working holiday.

“Is this a vacation,” you ask. Well, yes and no. It’s a working holiday. Meaning, I’ll be working while I’m enjoying foreign destinations. So yes, I’ll be on an extended vacation, but I’ll also be working as a freelance writer for the duration.

One thing I am working towards is moving my career more in the direction of travel writing rather than simply SEO, copy writing/editing and the general freelance work that I do. I’ll still do these things, but as I pass the 10 year veteran traveler mark I’d like to start steering my career more in that direction, especially as I begin to work as I travel.

In any event, that’s the update for now. I’ve already reserved my accommodations for October – January in Cancun, and I’ll be heading out at the end of September.
