    How possible is it to be a full time travel freelancer? I would be worried about having health insurance and enough money to support myself. I need advice because I am considering doing this. I’ve played around with a lot of scenarios, including taking on a blow off job in order to sustain this kind of living. Thank you in advance for any and all insights!!
