The best Central American destinations for surf and remote work

Being able to work remotely is already a privilege. Only 14% of the US workforce works remotely full time (down from over 30% two years ago), so you can consider yourself lucky if you are one of them.

Here at The Wayward Road, we have been working remotely since 2016, and a few years ago, we took up surfing as one of our main addictions hobbies. However, we quickly realized that combining our work life with our surfing wasn’t as easy as we initially thought.

How To Travel And Work Full Time At The Same Time

This is probably the question us remote workers get asked the most: How can you work full time while traveling at the same time? It does sound weird, especially for someone who only travels to and from work. For people that have in-office 9-to-5 jobs, the idea of being able to have a meaningful job and not being attached to a cubicle, a water cooler and an identification badge sounds too good to be true.

Truth is, this is something a log of people dream with. You just have to do a quick Google search to realize how many people are looking for ideas on how to get paid while traveling: Continue Reading “How To Travel And Work Full Time At The Same Time”

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”

What Are The Best Passports To Travel The World?

Passports are all different and it’s no secret that some of them open more doors (or countries) than others. Henley & Partners, a consulting firm specializing in residence and citizenship planning, has recently released its Visa Restrictions Index for 2016, “a global ranking of countries according to the travel freedom that their citizens enjoy” in collaboration with the International Air Transport Association.

Latin America In Two Months

Latin America In Two Months. Sky high Andean cities, Caribbean beaches, rainforest villages, and more hours traveling by bus than I care to count. We’ve been ticking off the days for months now, and it’s finally almost here. On April 29th we will start our two month adventure through Latin America. To be fair, we are really only visiting six countries in Latin America, which is still probably a lot for two months, but we’re going for it. Starting as far south as Santiago, Chile (where we are currently living) and heading north until we reach Havana, Cuba. We’ll be sharing updates and pictures along the way here, so be sure to check back to see what we’re up to. But before it all starts, here is our (very) rough itinerary, plans, and expectations for the next two months.
