Traveling – One of the Benefits to Making Money Online

December 16, 2008

One of the benefits to making money online is the freedom to be able to do things that you couldn't do before. Having that extra income frees you up to live a little (or course that's after the bills are paid). In the last year, I've been to the Bahamas twice and  I'm getting ready to make another trip down there on Thursday. It's a great thing.

Now, as you know, you cannot access freebie sites internationally (with a few exceptions). Actually, you should ONLY use your home computer to access freebie sites. Because of this, I will have to access my freebie sites using logmein.com. So if you find yourself in a situation where you are going to be traveling and you need to access your freebie sites, go ahead and read my article on How to Travel while doing Freebies.

That being said, I will be on vacation. I'm still going to try to keep my blog updated with fresh content for you. But if I skip a day or two (or three or four), don't hold it against me. It's currently 8 degrees in Michigan, so the change in weather will be DRASTIC! WOOHOOO. Then again, after being in the Bahamas for a little over a week, we are heading to Nebraska. Yes, we decided that we wanted to experience both extremes. Nah, just kidding. We are attending a wedding in both places. It should be fun.

So what are you doing for Christmas? I would love to know. Who has the wildest vacation planned . . . ???

    Nice vacation you have planned. As you may know I live in Hawaii so it’s like being on vacation every day ! LOL Never been to the Bahamas but if you ever get over here let me know. I moved here from Texas 10 yrs ago and I’m never leaving! As for Christmas this year, I’m sure we will visit with family and friends but don’t know yet if my boyfriend is going to have to work.
    Have a Safe and Fun Vacation

    • I’ve always wanted to visit Hawaii Paulette, but have never been. That’s in my plans later on somewhere down the line. I just love traveling. Thanks for the well wishes and I hope you have a GREAT Christmas.

    Thanks for the tip, I appreciate it. I have never heard of that site before. I do travel overseas now and then so I’ll keep it in mind!

    This is so true… even your online incomes are only an addition to your revenues it might pays for your annual vacations. Isn’t this great? Isn’t this a good reason to start an online business?

    Well it was to me tought.

      We stay home for Christmas. We just took a 9-day trip in October, though, to take the kids to Disney World on their Fall Break from school. That was a blast. For surf & turf vacations, we go back to a place I once lived (Destin, FLA) about once a year and have a favorite condo there right on the beach that we stay at.

      Have fun in the Bahamas!!! And Nebraska, too!

    I think one of the things that attracted me to working online was the hope that it would give me more freedom, as well as a good source of income. I have not utilized the the remote access yet, but it is a great way to leave open the possibility for doing business when you are not at home.

    • It does give you more freedom and that’s the part that I LOVE the most. Once you have a good system in place (in the right way), you are basically setting yourself up for success, and that extra income does give you the ability to do things that you wouldn’t normally be able to do.

      Yes Aaron, Logmein is a great resource. There are some others such as GoToMyPc. I haven’t used it, but I hear it’s pretty good. I like Logmein because it’s free!

    Good info Leslie…something else to learn! I think you have a tendency to go from 1 extreme to another in all that you, including your vacations!

    Be safe and have a great time!

    • LOL, Yeah, the funny thing is, the two wedding ceremonies are for the same couple. My Brother-in-law is getting married in the Bahamas (where he’s from) and then having a ceremony in Nebraska, where his fiancee is from. I can’t imagine having two weddings. One was crazy enough, lol.

    awesome, two weddings in both extreme weather conditions, hehehe. This will be somthign I look forward to hearing about how it went. I think that would be so much fun. I mean, who wouldnt love the Bahamas? I love this site,you are so helpful and touch on every base that I have thought of in questioning myself and some questions I had about freebie trading. This is one I was taught to be a dead no-no. NO trading away from home or you get banned. This logmein is awesome. Thank you for sharing all that you do and all your hard work. I hope you have a great time and hurry back safely.

    Have a great time in the Bahamas. Would like to go there someday. We spend our winters in Florida (Jan 15 – March 15). I use a wireless internet device on my laptop as we do move around a lot. Your approach is an excellant one. I will also look into it, in case I need a backup system. What a great way to start a marriage. Being thoughtful of each other’s desires will make a long and successful marriage.

    We visit my wife’s mother on Christmas eve. She is 96 and still keeps up her Polish tradition. I love the perogies, etc. Rest of time will be spent quietly with my family at home.

    We never go anywhere, heeh, My husband works all the time and so here we are in Texas. But thats okay, we love it here. lol.I would like to go several places though one day. I would love to travel to some exotic places. Maybe when he retires and we do not have so much on our plate. Family is first and foremost so we do family at holidays. Hope you all have a great one. ~~

      Yes, money = freedom, and freedom means having more time to do the things that you really want to do. That’s what attracted me to the freebie industry.

    Ahh yes, the Bahamas are the greatest, especially when it’s winter in Michigan. Thank you for the tips on how to log into your freebies sites while on vacation, even though this year I’m staying home this holiday season, I am sure this info will come in handy in the near future.
