                          visited, and others. So all of you don’t have to envy

SO HOW DID WE
                          DO IT?


Friday 1 April 2011
First step

                      Choose destinations (gut feeling + internet available)
              ★

              ★
                      Started planning
Friday 1 April 2011
SECOND step
              ★
                      Checked for hacks: accountant / grants / gap year

              ★
                      We told our clients we were leaving & prepared them
              ★
                      Made sure they had the right tools

Friday 1 April 2011
THIRD step

Friday 1 April 2011
FOURTH step

                      Lived locally
              ★
                      Worked normal hours
              ★
                      Spent weekend on doing fun stuff




Friday 1 April 2011
SO, YOU REALLY
                      WORKED THROUGH THE
                          INTERNET ?

Friday 1 April 2011
The Future is Digital
              ★
                      In Belgium just starting,
                      in US more mainstream
              ★
                      Especially digital jobs
              ★
                      In the future more than only digital
                      jobs (think doctors, psychiatrists)



Friday 1 April 2011
Gear
              ★
                      Laptop
              ★
                      iPhone + Local mobile number + SIP solution
                      (local Belgian number is gated to our local
                      number abroad at very affordable rates)
              ★
                      iPhone + Skype
              ★
                      TelenetConnect for internet (on laptop + iphone)
              ★
                      Backup disks in case of emergencies

                      Skype for contacting clients + screensharing
              ★

Friday 1 April 2011
Other Working Needs
              ★
                      It really helped us to have an office in Buenos Aires.
                      We became much more productive
              ★
                      Headphones are a must
              ★
                      Good internet makes a hell of a difference, although,
                      not having it all the time makes you more productive




Friday 1 April 2011
WE TRAVELLED DIGITAL
                   TOO...


Friday 1 April 2011
Tools we loved
              ★
                      AirBNB.com, local craigslist & google: holy cow!
              ★
                      The combo wifi/3g + Booking.com rocks! We once
                      arrived in Thailand from Belgium, booked a flight on
                      low cost carrier, and immediately booked a hotel via
                      booking.com. All in the airport...
              ★
                      Facebook & twitter: travel recommendations


Friday 1 April 2011
Tools We Didn’t
              ★
                      KAYAK.com: although a very nice site + app.. We love
                      the convenience of a travel agency, and the fact you
                      can call them. And eventually, if not on low cost
                      carriers, they always have similar prices.
              ★
                      Lonely Planet Guides on iPad/iPhone SUCK. Better
                      think WallPaper Guides.


Friday 1 April 2011
& WE LIVED DIGITAL...
                          (but don’t we all do that a little today)




Friday 1 April 2011
THROUGH THE INTERNET WE STAYED IN TOUCH
              WITH OLD FRIENDS & MET NEW FRIENDS ON THE
              ROAD

              EVERYWHERE




Friday 1 April 2011
SOME
                      AFTER THOUGHTS


Friday 1 April 2011
THE HARD STUFF
              ★
                      You just can’t do it all. You’re not a tourist, you have a
                      working life and are not on vacation. Although many
                      people think you are.
              ★
                      Tourist stuff is expensive. Very expensive.
              ★
                      Starting over and over again is tiring.
Friday 1 April 2011
WE MADE IT!
              ★
                      Came back with as much money as before (and even
                      a little more)
              ★
                      We are still on speaking terms with each other
              ★
                      We managed to travel & to make time for several mini-
                      retirement sideprojects



Friday 1 April 2011
ANY
                QUESTIONS?
