52 Places that Made me Become Location Independent

Before I found out about lifestyle design, location independence, digital nomad lifestyle or whatever you want to call it, I wanted to work from anywhere and live anywhere. Traveling has always been on my blood. My dad used to travel all year long when I was young and we never lived for more than 2 years in one location.

I haven’t had the opportunity to get on a plane or take a trip longer than a four hour drive in five years. Looking over some pictures on flickr inspired me to start thinking about travel again. They might inspire you too.

I borrowed most of these pictures from flickr; I found some great artists. It’s unbelievable what people can do with a little $1,000 camera.

Because of all these images these artist took, I’m inspired to discover new places in the next 10 years. Take a peek, maybe they’ll make you want to work from anywhere in the world and mix things up a little in your life.

    • Oh those are awesome, I’m assuming those are all places you want to visit?

  • Jon

    Wilson – no fair man, you’re making me sit here and stare at these breath-taking pictures of incredible places when I should be writing another article. Some of these are very captivating; I like the Cape Town one. How cool would it be to get a few buds together and had out to South Africa for a short stint?

    At any rate, location independence is something I’m striving for and I won’t stop till I achieve it.

    • I know man, hey what part of Colombia did you say you were?

  • The photos are inspiring! Where is the horsehoebend?

    • aren’t they? that’s in the Gran Canyon, Colorado. Well taken picture and looks like a beautiful scene to see.

  • Inspiring photos indeed. Only place from the Photos I have visited is the Langkawi sky bridge. Hopefully I can visit few more in the future.

    • That’s awesome, are you currently traveling the world?
