In my career I’ve been fortunate to be one of those people who does get to enjoy truly incredible, hands on experiences such as travel, although to be honest, the majority of my work life still falls under the online category.
Recently over the past few months, I’ve found that much of my personal life was heading in the direction of my career life and taking place online as well. A good part of this was unavoidable due to my high volume of travel and the importance I place on staying connected with friends and family. However another side of me was feeling slightly unsatisfied in my day to day routine while not traveling, noticing that there was no longer a good balance and the online life was tipping the scales.
With this revelation, I’ve decided to take a big step and in the direction of offline and offer a glimpse of the Jetsetter Gypsy Lifestyle in person, via the world of the vacation / holiday home share or exchange industry.
This was a simple conclusion that I came to after learning more of the concept at a Travel Bloggers Unite event a few months back in Umbria, Italy, while over lunch, a few other bloggers were sharing with me the benefits of this lifestyle.
So thanks to Angie from Travel Itch and Amanda from Revealed Rome for the motivation, as I’ve now spent the past month seeking treasures for my home around town, and conducting myself more as an interior designer than a professional in the online media industry. It’s been a blast, it’s been exhausting, I now have more callouses on my hands than ever before in my life, but most of all this has been a labor of love.
I’m now sharing my home in Barcelona, Casa Jetsetter Gypsy Penthouse, with the world and my lifestyle via Jetsetter Gypsy Concierge Service with anyone who wants a piece of my dream.
This should definitely be a fun, rewarding project that allows me to accomplish my goal of clocking in more hours offline.
