The expansion of fast, reliable internet access has spawned the dawn of the digital nomad. According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, a digital nomad is someone who performs their occupation entirely over the internet while traveling. Certainly, the WordPress community has its share of digital nomads – folks traveling and working remotely as they capitalize on their WordPress skills to live on the road.

What sort life is that of a digital nomad? Come learn from a WordPress professional who has been on the road for almost two years now.
