In this time of lockdown, we’re all looking for ways to scratch that wanderlust itch. Nothing can quite compare to being there in person, but we have found that digital tours can be a temporary substitute. And while virtual tours aren’t a new concept, some have gotten quite clever with how they’re implementing them. These are some of our favorites – the closest things to being there, the most unique, and the ones with the best “wow” factors.
Throughout my life, I’ve been very aware of my surroundings and can get a sense when I need to be more protective of my belongings. Rome was definitely one of those places. Only once have I been pickpocketed, and it was in a crowded dance club. Rome itself is like a crowded dance club. The first sign is when someone you don’t know approaches you.
Croatia is a beautiful country with its turquoise blue waters, a Mediterranean climate, and medieval architecture. In autumn, we could see the most popular historic sites outside of the massive tourist season of summer. The water is still warm for swimming, and the fall colors are amazing. There are various festivals and holidays to appreciate making this the perfect time to visit. This was a wonderful introduction to Croatia and it is now our favorite country in Europe. If you like autumn like we do, find out why this is the best time to visit Croatia.

The Roman Colosseum was a top priority while we were in Rome. It is one of the oldest ruins being built in 70AD, and it amazes us how much of it is still intact. Just thinking about how this place used to hold 50 to 80 thousand spectators, amazes us. That is about the capacity of an American football stadium.
One question we get asked most is how we can afford to travel for as long as we are. We of course try to cut our costs as much as possible (free lodging, anyone?), but we do also work. Many people don’t realize the plethora of opportunities that abound for making money on the road, so we will share some of them with you. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but it should get you started! With these options for income abroad, full-time travel is all the more possible.
