Would it be advisable or wacky to lug an external monitor from the US in hopes of avoiding coworking costs by working from Airbnb with decent wifi? I’m not sold on coworking spaces, and like the solitude of coding away in my own little airbnb space. One screen is limiting to productivity, hence the love of an external monitor. Thoughts?
📈 Averages over time
Average temperature and ratings of the cities you went (and when you were there). Interesting to see if there's progression in the quality of the places you visit. Be sure to add your home country cities too to make this chart accurate.

The apartment manager suggested kaidee.com, but nothing there. Any suggestions anyone?
I’m planning a visit to Chiang Mai and Bali starting in April. I have a Google Nexus which has worked flawlessly in Mexico at least. Assuming it will work just as well in CM and Bali? If I decide not to work in a coworking space, but rather Airbnb w/wifi and/or Coffee shops wifi, would a dedicated 4g sim card device be worth spening $75 USD to purchase, plus local sim, plus potential SIM hassle, or just rely on Nexus hotspot + airbnb and coffee shop Wifi?
Is there a digital nomad ‘circuit’? What I mean by this is, for example, SE asia in springtime, europe in summertime, central america is winter, etc? So that you might live year round in pleasant weather, taking advantage of inexpensive lodging, food etc?

tl;dr: introduce yourself in this thread.
We must all get sick of the same backpacker travel questions when we meet new friends, I know I do.
You know the ones - where are you from, where’ve you been, where are you going, what do you do, how long have you been doing it - etc.
The novelty of answering these questions wears off after maybe a week, but they’re nonetheless insightful and no matter how much we hate them, we find ourselves asking others.
So let’s bring the dreaded backpacker questionnaire to NomadForum and introduce ourselves shall we?
- what’s your name?
- where are you from?
- how long have you been away from home?
- what do you do?
- where are you currently?
- where are you going?
- what has been memorable for you so far?
- will you go home anytime soon?
- what have you learnt during your time as a nomad?
- [insert your own question here]
No need to answer them all if you don’t want to
But the more you share… The merrier!
I am trying to identify digital nomad hubs in each continent focusing mainly on the amount of digital nomads out there. I mean places which you can actually connect to nomads, regardless of cost of life and other factors. Also, what do you consider as the digital nomad locations which will be the next hubs?
That’s what I have currently, would you add a city, or remove one you find irrelevant?
European Hubs- Berlin, Prauge, Budapest, Barcelona
Asian Hubs- Chiang Mai, Ho Chi Minh, Ubud, Canggu, Bangkok, Davao
Latin American Hubs- Medellin, Buenos Aires, Santiago, Playa del Carmen
USA Hubs- Austin, Portland, San Diego, Boulder
Location which are becoming regional Hubs- Krakow, Lisbon, Taipei
Hidden Recommended Locations- Sofia, Plovdiv, Bucharest, Brasov, Cluj Napoca, Zagreb, Split, Thessaloniki, Yerevan, Tbilisi, Malta, Haifa, Galway, Phuket, Tenerife, Ljublijana
Best Value Locations- Lviv, Kiev, Odessa, Moscow, Saint Peterburg, Minsk
Top Level Hubs- Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo, Tel Aviv, London, Munich, New York, San Francisco
