Arriving in Bali on November 4th, I had no expectations. 

I just just journeyed over 30 hours to meet my PACK (of peeps) in Ubud, bringing my laptop and phone – AKA my business – in tow.

Maybe it's best to always enter a new situation with zero expectations?

Because what followed was a month of *explosive* surprises. 

Here are my top three favourite moments from my month in Bali with PACK.

It was my first time, but surely – not my last time. 

I’ve been in the freelancer world since 2013, and the digital nomad world since 2014. 

And in all that time, I had never experienced a “digital nomad retreat.”

I mean, I've worked from some amazing co-working spaces in Nicaragua, Portugal and Australia. 

But never had I joined in on a retreat – where all details are planned and taken care of for you.

So what is a digital nomad retreat, exactly?

I liken it to an all-inclusive resort.

My month in Bali with PACK recently wrapped up, and this – more or less – is the most common exchange I've been having post-trip:

"How was your holiday in Bali?"

"It was great! I was working too, but it was a nice working holiday."

"You were working? How did you get anything done in Bali?"

Hehe good question.

My short answer is this: time-blocking.

But if you’re an up-and-coming digital nomad yourself, you’ll probably want more details and strategies than that. 😉

Because yes, it's totally possible to take what would normally be a vacation and make it a working holiday – so that you're earning income while traveling. 

5 myths of being a travelpreneur

5 myths of being a travelpreneur

Myth #1: You're paid to travel. 

I get asked this question a lot. 

"How do you get paid to travel?"

The short answer is I don't. 

No one is sending me cheques for booking flights, trekking across the world and checking into Airbnbs 😂  – though that would be fabulous. 

I'm not a travel blogger who's sponsored by brands.

I don't rely on corporate sponsorship to fund my travels. 

Some travel bloggers make an excellent living doing this. I'm not saying they aren't a travelpreneur in that sense, it's just that – it's not how I do it.
