Working from home is quickly becoming working from anywhere …A new survey by Airbnb of work-from-homers found that 60% want to spend some time working from somewhere other than their homes. And no surprise – their ideal destinations are near water. 37% want to work at a place near the ocean and 18% want to rent a place by a lake. The survey found that 54% are looking for a change of scenery, and 29% said a new location would make them more creative. 19% said they wanted to stay somewhere closer to friends and family.

Speaking of working from anywhere …First it was Ferris wheels as restaurants, and now … offices. Remote workers are being lured to an amusement park in Tokyo, which promises free WiFi and the opportunity to use a Ferris wheel car as your office desk. Talk about a change of scenery. For just $18, work-from-home employees have full access to work from anywhere in the park -- including on the Ferris wheel. And the best part? After quitting time, anyone who worked remotely at the park gets full access to all the other attractions. (Daily Motion)
