Before I got married and started to work from home, I spent years on the road, toting a backpack and hitchhiking across the world (and sailing down rivers like the Congo River in the photo above). Now, with a family to take care of and a wife that dreams of our own home, you could say that I’ve sort of settled down.
But… because I work from home, I’ve managed to continue traveling. And, I also perform my travel stories with “The Wandering Israeli” stageshow.
However, writing about my travels has been more of a challenge… Since starting off with my Coolest DIY sites in 2003, I’ve visited Cuba, Russia, South Africa, Italy, Germany, Holland, Vietnam, Thailand, Greece and hope to embark on many more adventures. Yet, I haven’t written that much about them. And I will, one day. But for now, here are some stories I’ve written with an SBI! Twist.
Instead of my usual journey to the realms of some third-world country, I set out to visit some of the most amazing sites in the world: SBI! sites. Actually, the people behind the sites. I met over thirteen SBI! site owners, a handful of Sitesell staff members and, of course, the guy who created SBI!, Dr. Ken Evoy and his family.
I took off to Italy for five days with my wife. The main purpose of this trip was to take some time off from being mommy and daddy. However, I couldn't help squeezing in just one SBI! encounter. We met up with Jim and Fiona from rent-a-villa-in-tuscany.com who are really living the work-at-home dream. Wait till you see where they live!
After years away from the backpacker circuit, I left my wife and girls at home and set out to discover Morocco on a shoestring. Budget hostels, cheap eats, sweet mint tea, bustling markets, bed bugs... and the realization that while I was away on vacation, sleeping in a far-off Berber cave up in the Atlas Mountains, my sites continued to "work from home"...
