Back in my cubicle days I used to dream of escape and jetting off to foreign shores. Iâ€™d already spent just over a year traveling around Australia and SE Asia. But that justÂ whetted my appetiteÂ for seeing more of whatâ€™s out there.
A few years have passed since then, and whilst Iâ€™veÂ left my cubicle I still have yet to dust off my backpack and do more globe trotting.
Well, that could be about to change.
In aÂ few weekâ€™sÂ time Iâ€™ll be flying off toÂ live in Malta for a few months, initiallyÂ on a trial basis to see whether living abroadÂ harms my ability to secure new clients.
But should I be able to carry on attractingÂ enough work, Iâ€™m hoping Malta is theÂ first of a few pins I canÂ stick in the map.
One of theÂ big attractions of freelancing hadÂ been the dream of being able to work from far flung placesÂ and fit work around my lifestyle.
If everything goes to plan, itâ€™sÂ one dreamÂ that could become aÂ reality.
