Unfortunately for me, I have expensive tastes. This is reflective in my very odd, and slightly pretentious quests of visiting the best golf courses in the world, the best bars in the world, and continuing to make progress on my bucket list as much as I can. For the average person, you’d look at these […]
Lifestyle Design: How to Create the Life You Want
Lifestyle design is a catch-all buzzword that was made famous by Tim Ferriss around 2007.
The concepts of outsourcing your life, working for yourself, and creating a "4 hour work week" might be a little cliche these days, but the reality is that fundamentally they're all things we should be thinking about.
So many of us are in jobs we hate, routines that are dis-enchanting and we're not able to do the things we like to do on a regular basis.
So "designing our lives" to figure out how to integrate more of those things is a really valuable proposition and something we should do more of.
At Location Rebel our lifestyle design posts cover a broad range of topics like travel, blogging, productivity, and bucket lists.

Here’s a reality of life: we all get stuck in a rut occasionally. Sometimes the ruts are deeper than others. Sometimes they take longer to climb out of. But no matter where you are in life, how successful you are, or how great things seem on the surface, we all have our moments. Those moments where nothing […]

Yesterday during a deep binge into the dark recesses of our archives, it hit me, that you well, haven’t heard much from me over the past month. I went overboard with our daily blog in September, and then since then it’s been a bit of radio silence as far as posts from me and our […]
Note: this post has been updated as of October 2018 to maintain accuracy. I still vividly remember the days before Location Rebel (then Location 180) where I’d sit in my cubicle reading blog posts about location independence from Chris Guillebeau. The office building I worked at had an outdoor garden patio, where I used to […]
The year was 2012, and I woke up one August morning to an email from a friend that said: “Want to fly to NYC for free and go to a bunch of fashion week events?” If you know me, you know I don’t belong within 100 yards of any type of “fashion” event, but how […]
It’s always fun having new members pop up in the LR forums and make their first introductions. Usually, it goes something like this: “Hey, I’m Liz from Boston. I’ve been working in an office job in finance. It’s fine, the pay is ok, but I have so much more I want to do with my […]
Over the years I’ve made a lot of stupid travel mistakes. There was the time I was supposed to have a meeting in Ubud (the center of the island in Bali) and after two hours of riding my motorbike, I ended up at the ocean. There’s the time I almost lost my laptop at Boston […]
Last week in partnership with Canadian Rockies Golf, I took an epic 7 day trip to Alberta to see the best of what the area had to offer in terms of golf and the outdoors. To put it bluntly, the Candian Rockies were even more breathtaking and spectacular than I could have expected. Arriving in […]
Once upon a time I lived in Bangkok. When I landed in the City, I honestly knew nothing about it. I didn’t know what the neighborhoods were. I didn’t know which areas were touristy or not. I didn’t know which spots were “safe” and which ones weren’t. I just showed up. I had a hostel booked for […]
