Jacqueline travels year-round while holding down a full-time job as a COO for a small company, and she does it with a surprisingly minimalist amount of luggage. We spent a few days touring Lisbon with her to learn about how she packs, why she travels, and what she’s learned from over 3 years of global travel.
You can check out Jacqueline’s book, Travel Isn’t the Answer, here:
And you can also follow her on Twitter, and via her website:
Also, if you’re looking for a place to stay + work while you travel, definitely check out Outsite – they’ve got loads of locations in the US and abroad. We loved the Lisbon location – it was very central, nice big rooms, clean bathrooms & kitchens, laundry, and a big street-level space with fast wifi to work & watch the world go by:
It was the perfect home base for our Lisbon explorations and we really appreciate the team who let us stay there while we worked on Jacqueline’s video!
Jacqueline has a very balanced view of her digital nomad lifestyle and recognizes that travel isn’t the answer to happiness. She also doesn’t believe that travel provides everything it seems to when we see glorified travel images on Instagram of people working on beaches. What she’s found is that she can cultivate a practice of living in the moment, being curious and passionate about her life and surroundings no matter where she is in the world.
Thanks for watching!
