What are you going to do with your jobs? (We’re selling everything to travel the world)

Since I told you that we’re selling everything we own to travel the world for a few years, I’m getting lots of questions (I’d have questions, too… it’s pure craziness!). So here’s a column with all the answers, one by one. If you’ve got questions, write them in the comments and I’ll note them down for future posts


How will you pay for your travel? What are you going to do with your jobs? How much money are you leaving with?

Many are asking me about work and money, and the answer is: we’re SO RICH that we can simply stop working and travel around!

Just KIDDING! We’ll keep working, of course. We NEED to keep working in order to afford traveling around (and saving money for our future, because let’s be honest, no government is ever going to pay for retirement!). Which means that we’ll leave with all our money and keep making money on the way.

Alex is a web designer and developer; I blog, and write and sell Montessori courses for Italian parents.

We will have to be very disciplined, which is something we have started already, as we need to get good at it before leaving.

We will have a bomb-proof routine: Alex will work every week-day morning, no matter where we are, and every week he’ll make sure to reach his goal of weekly working hours. I’ll stay with the kids every morning, and work some afternoons when Alex comes back. And we’ll both work a couple of hours every evening after we put the kids to sleep (at 7pm).

Keeping a routine will be the key of success.

    Ciao Carlotta, quello che state per fare mi sembra sì una pazzia, ma lo farei anche io se potessi!! Una curiosità: ma come farete a lavorare se starete visitando e viaggiando? O quando visiterete i posti che volete vedere?

    • Domanda appuntata, risponderò presto sul blog 🙂 Ma in breve, la nostra idea di viaggio è vivere i posti dove viaggiamo, conoscerne la cultura, e visitare anche posti turistici, certo, ma più esplorare una vita diversa. Quindi cercheremo di fare vita normale in un altro Paese 🙂

  2. Hi Carlotta! This is simply great, I love it! I guess you’ll need an internet connection in order to work? What will you do in places where you can’t find one? I love your blog!

    • Hi Anna, thanks for your comment and your lovely words. Yes, we will need an internet connection at all time, which is why that will be a determining factor when making our itinerary. But in general we will get SIM cards and we will be fine with a 3G or 4G connection. 🙂
