291: Remote Work on Bike Tour
It used to be that a bike tour meant taking paid time off or quitting your job. Now that remote work is a reality for many of us, there's a new option. But is a bike tour while working remotely right for you?
Remote Work on Bike Tour
First, the cons
- Is it, um, allowed?
- You can't really unplug
- Don't underestimate connectivity issues
- Will you be a mediocre remote worker on a mediocre tour ?
- Leveraging the new paradigm
- Remote work means work from anywhere
- Fewer worries about money
- Go full nomad and maybe the tour pays for itself and more?
- May be the difference between touring and not, or allow for a much bolder, longer tour.
