How To Travel The World, Hassle Free, Alone Or With Family, Maintaining A Home-From-Home Lifestyle

I recently was on a Skype chat with a colleague who works with me, and is based in France, she generally works from home, but she mentioned she was going offline to try out a “Co-Working” Space. I had heard of these before, but never investigated them further, I usually go to bars or cafe’s to get a good wi-fi spot when I am out and about, but I had never actually considered setting up an external office style space for a longer period of time.
