But, is this really a lifestyle you want? 

Just like anything in life, this lifestyle has its own positive and negative aspects that differ from one person to another. 

Positives

You can travel the world while working! traveling is no longer part of a vacation. you choose your own space to work in. Also, if you are a freelancer, you manage the time that fits your day and the type of work you can provide. 

Negatives

It is not as easy as it seems. you should have a strong background in traveling, marketing, freelancing, and living on your own in foreign countries as well as monitoring your expenses. You have to keep in mind that at some point in peoples’ lives, they need stability and search for it. They no longer want to travel the world but would rather live a quiet life with their loved ones.

So, you have to ask yourself, to what extent is this lifestyle sustainable for you and your personality? Are you willing to spend your entire life traveling? This is an important question that you have to genuinely ask yourself.
