The travel world is finally getting back to the type of vibrancy which defined it before the COVID-19 pandemic. In the aftermath, it seems as if more people are exercising the option of not only traveling but also relocating to another country in general.
Indeed, the lockdowns and all that they entailed caused many of us to step back and reevaluate the trajectory of our lives. Concurrently, an increasing number of employees have become empowered to travel, while generating income simultaneously through remote work. So it is by and large with the modern traveler in mind that we have created this blog (GreetingsFromAbroad.com).
Yes, traditional vacationing is still a thing, and we got that side of the biz covered also. For instance, you will come across ample posts based on our team’s experiences with Singapore and Dubai, which have developed into some of the most-exquisite places on Earth.
But we also understand that not everyone wants to spend an arm and a leg while traveling. And only having access to the travel blogs of rich folk and social-media influencers can be misleading. So we also focus on localities where travel can be enjoyed on a budget – and everything in between.
Going back to the prospect of remote work, we also sometimes place a special emphasis on digital nomadism – i.e. being on the move though not actually vacationing – and how different parts of the world are suited to accommodate such travelers.
With all of the content we create, our main goal is to keep it real with the reader, therefore providing you with the most honest and frank assessments we can compile.
That said, we also hope you enjoy reading this blog and that our content allows your mind to travel to places that perhaps your physical body may never see.

There are also a couple of initiatives Malcolm is currently working on to encourage more people to travel in general but especially to come and check out the Motherland via its gateway country, Ghana.
