Earn an income having fun as an expat

I posted an article with International Living back when I was managing Ocean Connections Water Sports. While my life has changed quite a bit since then, the idea holds true years later: it’s possible to earn an income having fun! In this edition of Expat Stories, I’m telling a bit more of my own.

Island Life is for the Directionally-Challenged

Posted in: All About Roatan

I posted this piece on Women Who Live on Rocks last year, and it recently popped up again to make me smile. Island life is full of quirks, giving road directions is merely one tiny example of the fun you can have trying to make sense of living on a small rock in the sea.

travel blog 2016

I’ve been incredibly quiet over here and I have to apologize for that! We’ve been transitioning to a new home, complete with trying to create a new routine while receiving endless Amazon deliveries. In all of that, I’ve been trying to stay afloat on clients’ projects and had to neglect this little piece of the interwebs. Apologies all around!

Roatan House Hunters International

This week marks my three year anniversary of a new life. It’s been three years since I arrived in Roatan, Honduras. It’s been three years since I met my Irish-Colombian on West Bay Beach. It’s been three years since we moved in together. It’s been three years since we went to the gas station and came home with a little furball. All that happened in just over a week! It’s been three years of life well lived, love fearlessly shared, and so many incredible adventures. Here’s to looking back and to moving forward.

working on the road

Freelance writing is new to me as of this year, so it’s been a steep learning curve in terms of finding clients, diversifying my portfolio, and actually making enough money to pay my bills. As a self-motivated worker I’ve been able to manage my own time fairly well – of course I have days I get distracted by social media, or my dog, or the sunshine – but for the most part I’ve been able to balance work and play as a self-employed freelance writer.
