Vanlife In Europe (A Beginner’s Guide), Moving To Spain, and 5 Tips For Running A Successful Remote Work Retreat With Chase Warrington From About Abroad

Have you ever dreamed of campervanning around Europe? Have you ever wanted to plan a remote work retreat for yourself or your organization?

Today I’m joined by Chase Warrington, host of the About Abroad podcast, to talk about his experience campervanning around Europe and planning remote work retreats that create meaningful connections.

Chase Warrington is an American expat living in Europe with his wife and dog. He’s the Head of Remote at Doist, a leading remote-first company with teammates spreading across 35+ countries, and has been named a LinkedIn Top Voice for Remote Work. After calling half a dozen countries home, Chase is passionate about the future of work and its impact on global mobility, as well as making location independence the new standard and helping others build a life without borders. 

In the first half of this episode, Chase dispels the glamourized version of vanlife and shares the reality of this lifestyle. He provides plenty of actionable tips on campervanning in Europe, including how to buy and sell a campervan (even if you aren’t a resident), the benefits of road-tripping around Europe, and options available for European residency.

As the retreat planner for Doist, Chase also shares his favorite up-and-coming retreat destinations and his advice for creating successful remote work retreats. If you’re a solopreneur or traveler working remotely, Chase’s advice can be applied to create your own mini-retreat to recharge and escape your daily routine.

Is vanlife for you? I’d love to hear your thoughts and hope you will share them by sending me an audio message.
