How good would it be if your office enjoyed all-year round sunshine, and sat just moments from a mind-blowing beach? Silly question. You'd love it. Funnily enough, it's time to stop thinking of this as a far-fetched dream, but more of a reality - if you're a freelancer that is.
As tech improves day-by-day, freelancers now have the opportunity to pack up their laptops and escape the depressing commute, the (usually) miserable weather and tiring rat-race, and instead work on the beach - quite literally.
So, without wanting to keep you waiting long, check out five of the most desirable coworking spots in the world. Try tell yourself you aren't jealous. You're fooling nobody...
