What are wise ways to handle health insurance, as a USA person


by @azurio |  | 1 comment

Hi! Iโ€™m still struggling to figure out how to handle health insurance.

What handy guides have you found to help figure out USA health care?

Iโ€™m struggling with:

  • When itโ€™s okay/wise to go without coverage while abroad, these days.
  • What other type of insurance I want while traveling, and whether it needs to be a supplement to USA insurance or if it can be a replacement.
  • Etc.

Above all, I think I want out. I wonder about success stories in moving to some other system/location, and the method youโ€™d recommend: additional citizenship, a special visa, etc.

I have searched this topic and struggled with it, so summaries and clarity are super helpful. I appreciate any and all help with this. Thanks so much!

Gamer setup for travel?


by @azurio |  | 6 comments

Hi guys! Who plays video games?

What system do you use? How does it work for you?

I work on a MacBook Pro, and of course Mac isnโ€™t great for gaming. Iโ€™m thinking of traveling with a (relatively) small eGPU to crank up the graphics. There might be decent PC laptops, but I want with macOS.

Favorite towns in Mexico (and near it)?


in Mexico by @azurio |  | 5 comments

Hey guys!

We love Mexico. Weโ€™re excited to find outstanding towns to live in for 2-12 months at a time. Weโ€™re also open to Central American gems.

We especially appreciate learning about those smaller towns that are lesser known but amazing. Personal favorites!

Here are some of our interests:

  • a paradise vibe: ocean, lush greenery, vibrant arts, and/or old town charm
  • at least 3 Mbps download speed
  • great cost of living
  • considerable expat and retiree crowd
  • not too much of an urban city โ€” though a smaller town outside a city can work
  • a bit touristy is okay

Here are lesser-discussed towns that caught our eye โ€” weโ€™d love impressions of these and more that come to mind:

  • Huatulco
  • Ixtapa
  • Guanajuato
  • And more?

Thanks so much, guys!

Hi dear nomad comrades,

Iโ€™m curious about your favorite cities/towns/areas south of the USA!

We are hearing nice general things about Mexico, Costa Rica, and Panama, but weโ€™d love to know what drew you to your nomad spot, and why you loved it. Thanks so much!

What's the best suitcase for a digital nomad?


by @azurio |  | 3 comments

Iโ€™ve enjoyed a set that has a laptop-friendly little backpack that attaches to the main carry-on sized rolling suitcase. (It fell apart and itโ€™s time for a new one, haha.) I suppose the key criteria are light sleekness and durability.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts/advice/links, guys! :slight_smile:

What's your favorite places to live in Thailand?


in Thailand by @azurio |  | 0 comments

As for my tastes: I was more fond of Ao Nang than Phuket, and generally enjoy a peaceful paradise non-urban vibe for living, but with people and things going on nearby. Considering 1-3 years, and just hope to hear about personal tastes and impressions. Thanks! :slight_smile:

What's the weirdest thing you travel with?

 

by @gigigriffis |  | 21 comments

I was thinking about packing today and Iโ€™m curious: whatโ€™s the weirdest thing you guys have in your bags? Nomads are, by nature, minimalists, but Iโ€™m sure we all do it differently. I have a friend who travels with BASE jumping gear, another a sequin dress. So, whatโ€™s the most unusual thing in your bag?

Mine is probably that I travel with a dog.

What are the most trending digital nomad hubs?

 

by @startupblink |  | 28 comments

Hi all,
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?

Thatโ€™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

How do you avoid getting charged large fees by your bank when withdrawing overseas?


by @creative_nomad_ |  | 14 comments

Hi All,

My question is about banking when it comes to being overseas/working etc. How do you avoid getting charged large fees by your bank when withdrawing overseas?

Iโ€™m originally from Australia and do my banking still in Australia. I live in the UK and most recently was living in Vietnam where I found I had to withdrawl money just to get charged very large amounts from my Aussie bank.

How do you get around this? What can you recommend.

Thanks

How do you work out and stay fit on the road?

 

by @christianbundy |  | 30 comments

I worked out a few times a week back home, but havenโ€™t been able to figure out how to make it a part of my routine now that Iโ€™m living out of my backpack in hostels. Iโ€™ve always gone to gyms, but Iโ€™d be open to trying bodyweight exercises. I thought that I might be able to do bodyweight exercises in parks/etc, but the past few days in London have been wet and miserable and I canโ€™t find the motivation to go do push ups in wet grass. Any advice?

What is the best VPN for South East Asia?

 

by @basicallydan |  | 37 comments

Iโ€™m going to be in various parts of South East Asia for 5 months (Japan, Korea, Vietnam, China, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Singapore, Indonesia) and I have decided based on much reading that I need to get a VPN set up for myself. Rather than using my own server, Iโ€™d like to set up with a paid service which will have various places around the work to connect through which are reliable and appropriate for what Iโ€™m doing (e.g. banking, chatting, emailing watching streaming TV from home, or Netflix).

Iโ€™m sure there are plenty of recommendations out there.

Thanks :smile:

How is Costa Rica for digital nomads?


in Costa Rica by @seansean11 |  | 11 comments

Iโ€™m making my way up to Costa Rica from Colombia right now and plan to spend a 2-3 week period working remote when I arrive to Costa Rica. Iโ€™m currently looking at AirB&B for a beach apartment w/ wi-fi in a few popular beach destinations, but the cost is looking pretty high (think $800+ for 2 weeks). I speak Spanish and was thinking that maybe I could haggle something less pricey when I arrive, but donโ€™t want to risk it.

The question I have is where and how can I set myself up for the best stay. Where should I search for places to rent? Should I try to rent an apartment with good wi-fi or just stay in a hostel on the cheap and go to coffee shops? And lastly, what are some of the best places to DN (I saw a bit about Quepos and Santa Teresa in another post)?

Nomads, how do you generate your income? Let's do a poll!


by @jchatard |  | 3 comments

Hi nomad girls and nomad boys!

Iโ€™m a full stack programmer, DevOps kind of thing, book authorโ€ฆ Bref, I own a company based in France, and Iโ€™ve been traveling around the world for more than a year because I was fortunate enough to have my company running with all my clients. Nowโ€ฆ

Because I canโ€™t really get a precise sense of what digital nomads do for a living. Reading from topics, blogs, stories, etc. Itโ€™s difficult to have a global picture of how skills are spread around different fields. So I was thinking that a poll would help me, you to figure this out!

What do you do for a living while traveling ; being a digital nomad?

Here are the 2 questions for you! :grinning:

First: what type of contract / legal status?

  • Freelance
  • Hired by a remote friendly company (including Toptal & co)
  • Entrepreneur (running a website, webservice, webshop, etc.)

0voters

Second: From what skill is your main income coming from?

  • Software development (front, back, security, whatever)
  • UX, graphic design
  • Hosting
  • Marketing / social media / SEO
  • Writing (blog, book, articles, journalist, translator, etc.)
  • Advertising / affiliation
  • Sponsoring
  • e-commerce
  • Photography
  • Tourism (hotel, restaurant, โ€ฆ)
  • Financial related activity
  • Training
  • Otherโ€ฆ(surfing, karaoke, youโ€™re rich and thatโ€™s it)?

0voters

I know my proposition might not be complete, but if a moderator wants to add more answers, feel free to do it :blush:

Iโ€™d love to have more insights, especially if you fall in the Otherโ€ฆ category from the last question!

Cheers!,

What's better, a backpack or suitcase?


by @patrick |  | 17 comments

I am used to travel with my backpack. A logic choice when you also walk trails and such.
But while traveling for a few months now in South America, I do not walk a lot with my backpack while living as a DN.

So the question came up: Backpack or suitcase for the next travels?
The walk from hostel to the bus terminal is no problem. And a case is so much more accessible to live outโ€ฆ I think.

The case to go for me would be a Rimowa, thรฉ topnotch aluminum one.

What is you experience with a case vs. a bag?

How do you protect your tech gear from theft while travelling?


by @alejandrow |  | 6 comments

So, Iโ€™m about to become a digital nomad later this year. Right now Iโ€™m in the preparation mode and looking for useful information that will help me to achieve living like a digital nomad without having to deal with beginner problemsโ€ฆ

I have traveled before, so I have some experiences, but not long term travelling in poor countries. Just been living abroad in several countries in Europe for 3-6 months in the same place. I will visit both South East Asia and South America, so I would like to have some helpful tips about security and how to avoid theft.

So basically, if youโ€™d like to share your experiences: How do you protect your tech gear from theft while travelling?

How do you deal with not getting paid when working remotely?


by @pixelfiesta |  | 10 comments

I have had bitter experiences of not been paid for assignments when I have been remote. Its either not paid completely or pair partially or delayed payments. How do you tackle such issues?
Do you take advances? Do you use escrow? or other third-party payment collection agencies?

What payment related problems do you face in working remotely and how do you tackle them?
