We’re all for unplugging on vacation. But in order to make travel a lifestyle, you’re gonna have to work while abroad. The good news is you’ll join a legion of digital nomads, tech-based professionals who make travel their second occupation. At hostels, hotels, apartments and even on beaches, these full-time employees reap the benefits of travel, and their businesses do too. Take Jay Meistrich for example. After years in a career at Microsoft, he took off on a mission to launch a start-up from outposts all around the world. His finished product — completed in Bali, Melbourne, Budapest and Stockholm — has flourished because of the flexible time schedule and almost constant stimulation travel offers, he says. Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that every lodging option cost less than both his San Francisco and Seattle apartments did.
