Hello, fellow wanderers! I'm Layne—I'm a writer, a remote product operations executive, and a professional vagabond—travelling a lot of the time since 2000, most of the time since 2014,
and full time since the end of 2015.
By "travelling full time," I mean that I don't have a permanent homebase. I have a suitcase, a rucksack, and a handbag. Everything I own fits in one of those vessels and moves with me every 2-12 weeks. So far I've lived on all seven continents in 57 countries and counting!
Over the years, I've learned how to make good money while I wander, and how to travel lavishly without the extravagant price tag. I started Wanderluxed to share my strategies with everyone else who longs to travel in style.
My online travel hacking courses will teach you everything I know. Check them out here! I also publish free content on my Facebook, Instagram and TikTok pages, and you can shop my travel store for all the best gear. Check out my interview with The Professional Hobo to get a good sense of how I've designed my own lifestyle and how I make it work financially.

Why am I qualified to teach travel training courses? In addition to 20+ years and 57 countries' worth of experience travelling like my life depended on it, I've been an IATAN-accredited travel agent for 15 years. I hold a Certified Travel Associate certification and specialist certifications in Sustainable Travel, Egypt, and Costa Rica from the Travel Institute.
I also have seven years of experience building large globally distributed teams of 50+ people for tech companies. Part of my work is leading remote training strategy and setting up fully remote onboarding courses to prepare new hires for their roles. My online training programmes have successfully trained up hundreds of people all over the world. You can check out my LinkedIn profile here.
