Mike has always felt that traveling is a part of who he is, but he often had to put off his travel plans for “real world” responsibilities.
When Mike decided to put his love of travel first, he began writing about his adventures on his blog, Travel Thru My Eyes.
Now, he travels the world as a freelance writer who pays his way by house- and pet-sitting at each destination. This “job” as a blogger and writer allows him to stay a few days to a few weeks in each location, giving him time to explore each city like a local would and blog about it at his leisure.
“Today my office may be at home in Florida. But tomorrow, it may be someplace else in the Americas, the Caribbean, Europe, or any other country in the world. One of the perks of my “job” is that the office view is always changing.”
Mike reads The Right Way to Travel, just like you. He took advantage of our Money-Making Travel Blogs program a few months ago and now is living and sharing the life he always dreamed of. And he’s not the only one. Look at what some of our other readers are doing…
