Welcome to Hobo with a Laptop, we’re glad you’re here. We thought we’d take a moment to show you around. Our website can be a little confusing to first-time visitors –Is this a travel blog? Why are there so many posts about marketing? A travel blog about travel blogging? How meta.

A Distinct Audience

The world seems like a crazy place these days. Our primary objective is to help and motivate others to pick up a passport, get a remote job and explore it –to find balance and improve their quality of life.

We serve travelers and expats with valuable information about the specific regions we visit.

For those that wish to travel beyond a vacation; we offer resources that will help our readers find remote work or leverage other ways to make money over the internet and/or become a digital nomad.

And for our clients, we offer a range of freelance internet marketing services and the opportunity to publish on our platform.
