The Importance Of Remote Work Explained In 13 Tweets

Here at The Wayward Road, we have been talking about the importance of remote work for years. It’s something we’re obsessed with, and believe to be not only the future of work, but that it should be the present reality as well.

We believe that the times of having to move to a different city just to be able to commute everyday to a physical office should be long gone by now. Times are changing, although not at the pace we would like see them to change. Continue Reading “The Importance Of Remote Work Explained In 13 Tweets”

A Weekend Guide to Chefchaouen, Morocco

Why Chefchaouen?

After visiting Fes a few years back, we knew Morocco was a country we needed to explore more. So, what better time to go than to celebrate our 5 year anniversary? This time we chose to head up into the Rif Mountains to visit the famous blue town of Chefchaouen, or “Chaouen” as it is known by locals. This picturesque place is located just a bus, ferry, and taxi ride away from our home in Cádiz, Spain. It may seem like a bit of a trek to get there, but it really is quite simple and definitely worth it. Continue Reading “A Weekend Guide to Chefchaouen, Morocco”

24 Hours in San Francisco

I happened to be in town attending a congress for work. The event finished on Thursday and my flight left on Saturday morning, which allowed me to have 24 hours to explore the city. I had some time to prepare for my hours of freedom so I did some research beforehand. Let me tell you something in advance – 24 hours in San Francisco is not enough. But that was just a motivator for me to see and eat as much as I could. Here are my findings: Continue Reading “24 Hours in San Francisco”

How to Make Remote Working Work for You

The following post is a guest article from Toptal.

One of the best parts of working remotely is the flexibility it provides. Perhaps the most obvious benefit of remote working for the employee or contractor is that you can work in a way that suits you. Very few on-site jobs provide the flexibility to work where, when, and how you want.

This is a double-edged sword, though. The more flexible your schedule, the more diligent you need to be about finding your own structure and setting boundaries for yourself where you need them. Continue Reading “How to Make Remote Working Work for You”

Knuckling Down to Work and Staying Connected as a Digital Nomad

Those of you who have chosen the life of a digital nomad have already embraced the notion of swapping the dead-end 9-5 office job for technology-based work while exploring the world. It’s a romantic idea; logging into your laptop from the hotel balcony, taking in the views of a beautiful sunset, and knowing that you’ll be jetting off elsewhere next week.
