Working full time and finding the time to travel is something that I struggle with on a daily basis. At the moment, my wanderlust levels are so high, I can barely make it through 30 minutes at work without opening Instagram and seeing the amazing adventures other people are on.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my job. I work for an amazing company and some of the people I work with have become life long friends (in fact, I’ve travelled with two of them already and we have another trip to Salzburg booked this year!).

But. And this is a big “but”. I NEED to travel. Currently I have 30 days “annual leave” per year and because I am currently studying to become a Chartered Tax Advisor, 10 of those days are used as days off to study. That leaves 20 measly days a year to try and cram as much adventure into my life as possible!

So here are my top tips for making the most of your holiday periods while working full time!

So let’s summarise, I get 104 weekend days a year, 20 annual leave days that can be used for travelling, 7 days off at Christmas, 8 national bank holidays – suddenly travel seems a lot more realistic with 139 days to be played with!

Are you working full time and travelling? What are your top tips?

    I’ve been managing traveling + working/studying for years till I gave up work and turned into a full-time travel blogger last year. But it’s def possible to work and travel at the same time 🙂

  3. I used to be terrible at using my annual leave – I would go into work and if there wasn’t too much work to do I’d book a half day holiday, and before I knew it I’d pretty much used up most of my holiday by the summer. This year I’ve had 1.5 days off since January (and they were only for my cats – long story haha), so I’ve got quite a few days saved up so far! YAY! Sadly, where I work doesn’t close over Christmas so I had to chip into my holiday days to book that off.
    I’m always on the hunt for long weekends away, even if it’s just in the UK while I try and save some money. We’ve had some great little mini breaks away.
