Americans : How To Vote While Out Of The Country

By Megan Stetzel | September 30, 2018

Steph and I have talked about writing this post since Trump got into office and this Kavanaugh circus is making me extra terrified for November and it has finally motivated me to put this together. Why? Let me explain. I am currently in the United States, and have been for the past 5 months. The […]

Being A Digital Nomad vs. Being Location Independent

By Steph | August 30, 2017

This post is about more than terminology I swear. Hang around travel blogs for a while and you will start to see certain words bandied around quite a bit. “Digital Nomad” and “Location Independent” are two phrases you will see, often interchangeably. But they are actually two different things. I was reminded of this when […]

Best Coffee Shops & Cafes To Work From In London

By Megan Stetzel | April 4, 2017

I’ve been happily living in cold, chilly, and downright frost-bite inducing London for the past couple months. I also happen to work entirely remotely. And as cute as my apartment is, I am not one who can get work done whilst laying on the couch.   I prefer one of the other three ‘C’s instead: Coffee […]

Money Changes I’ve Made to Support a Life Filled with Travel

By Megan Stetzel | August 30, 2016

In 2013, I decided to drop everything and get my TEFL certification in Cambodia and teach English in Thailand. I really wasn’t sure where this was going to lead but I had a good feeling that Thailand wouldn’t be the last country I visited. I was right. The travel bug bit me pretty hard. I […]

Starting a Travel Blog That Matters- Part One: The Basics

By Steph | July 24, 2015

I quietly celebrated a major milestone this week. On July 23rd, 2009, I published my first blog post on Twenty-Something Travel: The Twenty-Something Travel Manifesto. Six years. Six years! I’ve been travel blogging for six years, and during that time I’ve gone from 79 page views my first month to over 150,000 views a month […]

3 Takeaways from Milwaukee BlogHouse

By Jessica Dawdy | July 13, 2015

You know how a lot of action movies have some kind of training montage – the scene where the main character gets whipped into shape by some seasoned mentor? That’s kind of similar to what BlogHouse felt like. It was a (wonderfully) intense 4-day training session in which a team of experienced bloggers coached a […]

From Digital Nomad to Something New

By Steph | February 19, 2015

I won’t lie, a part of me felt like I was giving up. Cashing in the glamorous nomadic lifestyle for a lease, furniture and a gym membership. What a sell out. “How long are you planning to stay in Seattle”, other travelers would ask me, (“a year?”). “I don’t know. Maybe forever?” I would reply […]

Behind The Curtain: My Freelance Writing Career

By Steph | August 20, 2014

I love blogging. It is my most creative writing outlet, but it’s also only half of what I do. Every morning I sit down at the computer and words pour out of me, but they don’t all make it up on here. In truth I have a thriving (knock on wood) second career writing freelance […]

The Reality of Being a Digital Nomad

By Steph | March 26, 2014

(This is part three of Life-Travel Balance week.) Like many working twenty-somethings, my best friend and I GChat back and forth most days, her at her desk in Seattle, me at our kitchen table in Sayulita Mexico. Last Wednesday she was complaining about some annoying guy in her office who was causing a disturbance. “I […]
