Traveling while working: don’t talk about it
For workers: remote work offers convenience, flexibility, no commute, and time savings
For companies: it cuts overhead, boosts productivity, and it’s profitable
For families: it means more time together
But there’s something else not really being talking about: the travel.
The freedom to travel while getting paid is a privilege so sweet that we’re willing to do things that seem utterly crazy to the average employee, like starting the day at 4am or hopping on an afternoon zoom from a cafe in Tangiers 🇲🇦
Maybe it’s better we don’t talk too much about the travel life, except with each other. After all, it’s not fair to those who don’t get the privilege, and it’s a needless flex to the companies that pay us to get things done — not travel the world.
