Funny thing, I actually came across the word “bleisure” just recently! I was trying to think of a creative caption that incorporated work, travel and play! I found #bleisure to be the perfect word!
A little about me, I’m an American who moved from Texas to Bangkok, Thailand with my boyfriend almost 2 years ago. I knew to move only meant I had to find another job! I was lucky enough to apply to a job where my resume was actually passed on to someone where they thought I would be a good fit for an Account Manager role for our online publisher partners. Four months after my across the world move, I started to work for Taboola (we are hiring globally-feel free to reach out to me!). Looking at my Instagram it does look like I travel a lot! I actually work full-time 9-6pm for a company that doesn’t have many vacation days for their employees... Thankfully, Thailand has over 16 different national holidays and I take full advantage of those by planning my vacation days around them.
Although, every year we are lucky enough to have a company that spoils us and flies us out to a location (it’s a surprise every year) for our annual sales conference. Last year we were in Tel Aviv and just a few weeks ago we were in Athens! With these trips, we do have the option to extend for vacation and of course, I chose that option! Especially when our flights are already paid for! That’s the majority of the expenses!
I also cover Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia territory. That being said, I try my hardest to get down there a weekend early to have time to explore! I’ve been able to explore the Blue Mountains 2 hours outside of Sydney (my first solo trip) and my boyfriend met me down in Manila to hop a short flight to Guimaras Island! Making these work trips into #bleisure trips is much more enjoyable!
All in all, it’s so important to me to keep up the traveling and have a healthy work-life balance. It truly brings me happiness and I also love taking photos of my #bleisure moments! Feel free to connect with me!
Thanks for having me, Bleisure Travels!"
