As a fulltime student with an online job, ditching the electronics are rarely an option. With family spread across the globe and wanderlust at heart, I refuse to let the university’s Wi-Fi define my workspace. In order to keep up with work and still travel requires flexibility – both in my lifestyle and from my devices.
At home, I use the HP Pavilion because of how the screen rotates and folds all the way back so I can adjust it to avoid glares or avoid neck strain. When travelling, however, I often just bring a carry-on, so I prefer my iPad for less weight and space. I have found that with the appropriate case I can transform my tablet to maintain the luxury, comfort, and flexibility of my laptop without the extra weight. Having the option to sit in an upright position also helps me remain focused, as I find with my iPad alone I tend to slouch or lie down and lose motivation.
Cafés can be an excellent way to gain perspective of a place you are visiting and get work done. I NEVER go to large international chains, because let’s face it, we all know what the inside of a Starbucks looks like. But going to a local café and asking the barista for a recommendation or ordering “that orange drink I see on every table” as I did in Italy, is a great way to learn what the locals like. I love people watching in any city, especially a new place. And of course, the less fun reason for visiting the café, to get work done. I am all about maximizing my time, so I try to create an enjoyable, cultural experience in which to do my work.
In short, having an open mind and equipment that is adaptable to your environment is key to working and studying on the road. The next step is to grab your passport and get out there!
