Have you ever been tempted to just pack it all in and hit the road? Well, it's not quite as difficult to do so today given that many companies are now supporting and even encouraging their employees to work remote. 

This week, I came across the story of a Content manager from Cisco who is truly living the digital nomad lifestyle after packing it all in and transforming a Jeep Wrangler into a mobile home and office together with her husband.

Happy reading,
