Meet Wes

Thanks for stopping by my travel blog!

I started this blog so that I could combine two of my favorite things: travel and side hustles. Starting my own freelancing side hustle changed my life because it’s allowed me to earn over six figures a year while working anywhere in the world, just as long as there’s good WiFi and cell service.

I’ve had the chance to travel and work from some pretty cool places, like:

This Hotel Rooftop in Cartagena, Colombia…

This Coffee Shop with a Volcano View in Antigua, Guatemala…

Or This Favorite Little Coffee Shop in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico…

Or Even Sitting by the Water in Marathon, FL…

If you’re passionate about something, you should go for it! I debated for many years on whether I should start this blog. I decided life is only worth living if you are doing something you enjoy. I hope this blog will inspire you to hit the road, see some amazing sights around the world, and even earn a good living along the way.

“I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed. Embrace is with both arms, hug it, love it, and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.” Ronald Dahl

You don’t have to chose between travel and work. It really is possible to travel while working remotely for a company, freelancing for clients, or starting your own business.

  • I grew up riding and competing horses, and it was pretty much my life until I was 18!
  • The first country I visited was Peru when I was 14. I ended up getting sick while we drove through the mountains and threw up on the bus (will never forget it)
  • My favorite food is pizza but I can tear up a plate of chocolate chip cookies any day
  • I’m a bit of wine snob and solely drive New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc
  • I love beachy trips and anything tropical…I could live in shorts, tank tops, and sandals every day
  • Before I started freelance writing, I ran a little wine shop. I was “let go” unexpectedly and stumbled into writing (best decision I ever made)
