About Working Travelers

What inspired us to start this platform for Working Travelers?
About us

How did our working traveling journey start?

Our journey started in 2021, when we laid the foundation for our first company together: Bridge Marketing. We combined our skills (Arjen as a Web Developer, Daphne as a Copywriter) to build an outstanding online presence for our clients in various sectors.

Slowly but steadily, our business started to grow – and in 2023, an unforeseen combination of circumstances suddenly showed us that since all our work could be done remotely, we might as well work from abroad for a while. And so, we ended up traveling through South-East Asia for 6 months while we continued our business. Our mornings were spent working from hotel rooms, co-working spaces and coffeeshops, and in the afternoons we went out hiking, visiting temples and trying out the delicious local food.

Although it was not our first long-term travel, it was our first time traveling and working – so we kinda figured everything out on the go. During our travels, we met a lot of different people, and it made us realize everyone was kinda figuring it out on the go. Halfway through our journey, we ended up inspiring Arjens father to chase his dreams as well and spend a month traveling Thailand and Vietnam. It was his first time traveling outside of Europe, so he had a long, extensive list of questions – from where to do the laundry to whether we thought he would meet other 50+ travelers.

Makes sense, because when you’re traveling for the first time, it can be hard to know where to start. Especially since most travel blogs are aimed primarily at digital nomads: people that have an online business while traveling. But what about people that are employed, but working remotely? Or people who don’t want to work from their laptop, and prefer to work on a farm in Australia for some time?

Our goal is to combine our website building and copywriting skills with our own experiences as digital nomads to provide one FREE source of information for the worldwide community of working travelers.

PS. If you do want to start an online business to take with you on the road, we are happy to help you out with your website and/or marketing ;) Feel free to take a look at our services or reach out to us for any questions!

In order to turn your dreams into reality, we believe you need to dream BIG! Although our platform is now a mere source of information, in the future, we want to take it to the next level by creating a worldwide community of working travelers. This makes it easier for you to connect, collaborate or just have a coffee together with someone at your next destination. You can now and you’ll be the first to be notified of updates!

Our Vision

Do you have a job that allows you to work fully remote? Do you push yourself every day with the goal to make a living off trading? Or do you dream to leave everything behind for a year, to work as a bartender in Australia? Three very different scenarios, but you have one thing in common. You want to travel the world and work on your career at the same time, rather than saving up and then spending it all on your trip. We’re here for you. For everyone who wants to break free off society’s chained construct about what a career should look like, and fly off into the world to chase their dreams.

So, you know what you want and you’re ready to go for it. Now where to start? If you find yourself in one of the scenarios explained above, you’ll find that it’s hard to find answers to all your questions. If you Google ‘how to live as a digital nomad?’ you will probably find about 10.000 different blogs. Most of them are limited to digital nomads only, the information is all over the place, important practical information is often missing. (Like, do you need a visa? What to do with your laundry? How do you actually make friends on your trips?!) Sometimes, people even try to charge you for buying their ebook our online course with information that SHOULD and CAN be found online. You just need to know where to look.

With Working Travelers, we aim to be that one source for you. As of now, our platform is still a work in progress, but our goal is to be your #1 source of information – where to live, how to meet other people as a solo traveler, practical travel essentials you shouldn’t forget, but also some necessary information such as where to apply for your visa. This way, you don’t have to search through five different websites to find an answer to your question. And the best part? It’s all free for everyone! No matter what your way of working and traveling is.

PS. Are you looking to connect with other travelers as well? In the future, we plan to set up a worldwide community for connecting, collaborating or just having a coffee together with someone at your next destination. You can sign up for our free community now to be the first to be notified of updates!
