Mindi and Daryl from 2 Food Trippers both work full time in Philadelphia, maximise their day, often working late into the night, early in the mornings and on weekends. We’ve interviewed Mindi among other travellers who work full time as a part of our weeklong initiative “Don’t Quit Your Job, And Travel” in the hope that we’ll inspire other travellers with full time jobs, that it is indeed doable.
How do you manage to squeeze out actual travel time?
We optimize our limited vacation time, travel on holidays and schedule long weekend trips.
How do you balance your day job and blogging?
We must admit that it’s a struggle. We often work on the blog late at night and early in the morning, plus weekends of course.
Has either suffered?
Since we can’t afford to let our work suffer, it’s often the blog that suffers. We refuse to compromise on quality, so that means that we are posting fewer articles than we would like.
Ever had a breakdown or thought you bit off more than you can chew?
We’ve had some stressful moments, but we’ve avoided breakdowns so far.
Do you intend on quitting your job to travel full time?
Although it’s our dream to travel full time, we’re not there yet, It’s something that we want to do in the future.
