Excerpt of article text...

When I first considered staying in France, I had the idea of living there for three months. That seemed like a long enough visit so I could really settle in and absorb the French culture (and cuisine). And since all I need is an internet connection for my work, it seemed feasible.

However, at the beginning of this year, when I had to start making concrete plans, I was feeling overwhelmed with organizing the logistics of two continents—my location in France and what to do with my place in the U.S. There was also the work aspect: with a magazine produced every two months, would I be able to produce an issue while in Europe or would that cause some unexpected complications?

I ended up compromising and reducing my stay to a month, which was much more manageable. Since it fell between issue releases, that also simplified my workflow.

I may, in the future, go back for a longer stay, but I will say that my decision to go for less time was a wise one. Even if you feel you want to travel or stay somewhere extensively, there's no rush to doing it all at once. There's no harm in taking a gradual approach and learning more about it before taking a long-term plunge.

There are a thousand things to consider when planning to work while traveling, but hopefully some of my experience will help you. Note that I'm a newbie at this, however, and I certainly don't have all the answers.

Also, my work is different from yours, and you may have other difficulties due to your requirements. Note that I'm writing this from my perspective as an independent self-employed worker.
