Do I need vaccinations for traveling in Asia?


by @fredrivett  | 6 comments

Iโ€™ve been looking to travel for a few years now, and Iโ€™m finally at the point where Iโ€™m pretty much ready to get going, hopefully next month.

That said, Iโ€™ve not planned ahead well, and it only just occurred to me about vaccinations. Iโ€™ve done a bit of research and there are vaccinations available, but Iโ€™m unsure how necessary they are.

I plan to chat to my local nurse/doctor before going, but Iโ€™m also interested to hear whether most people do vaccinate at all before heading out or not?

In terms of specifics, Iโ€™m planning to fly to Japan and then move south, likely hitting up Thailand, Bali, Vietnam etc.

Not expecting any official health advice here, more just personal experience. Any thoughts appreciated :+1:

How do you know you're "ready"?


by @fredrivett  | 19 comments

So for the last year or so Iโ€™ve been thinking of moving to Australia. Now itโ€™s not quite โ€˜nomadicโ€™, itโ€™s a permanent move to one location to work for a specific country, but itโ€™s similar to what you guys experience a lot.

Iโ€™m now at the point where a recruiter is recommending me to companies for roles, so this thing is all of a sudden very real. Iโ€™m 24, never lived abroad (although done some travelling, 3 weeks at a time max), single & looking for a job at a digital agency.

I can get a job in the UK, or get a job in Oz (Melbourne). Nothing in me wants the UK except that itโ€™s known. What will I do if I go to Australia and I hate it? How long will it take to make friends? Do I want to spend a couple of years of my life on the other side of the world to everyone I know and love?

For me it seems like if Iโ€™m going to do it now is the time. Iโ€™m young (ish), single & have no job stopping me.

I just want to know how others have felt in this situation, the decision they made and how it worked out for them.

Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Fred.

Anyone walking around the world while working?


by @michaltakac  | 8 comments

Hey guys,

Is there anybody who loves walking that much? Iโ€™m thinking about this for about 3 years now, and since I finished university this year, I could possibly plan for this huge trip and start sometime next year. I have no commitments, no girlfriend, some money saved and pretty strong motivation. I like to travel low cost (couchsurfing, exploring cities by walking, cooking own meals, sleep in a tent if needed).

Small background about me: Iโ€™ve been working 5+ years (and still working) as a software engineer remotely (full-stack, web, mobile, VR), trying to not spend everything and save a little here and there (plus some index funds, mutual funds and holding few cryptocurrencies). Walking is big part of my life since itโ€™s something like meditation, great time for creative thinking, research and solving problems. Usually my daily routine involves 10-20km of walking (some in the morning, some in the evening). So far longest stretch was 55km, aiming to raise it to at least 100km during next month. Also love to track everything (Fitbit Charge 2 + Gyrosco.pe).

Iโ€™m thinking if itโ€™s possible to walk around the world in 5 years while working occasionally during mornings or evenings (own web/mobile app, writing blog) and at the same time complete a PhD in Process Control (got an offer to work with great professor on an interesting thesis using augmented reality, for which I only need a smartphone, my Macbook and ability to once in a while consult with him over phone/skype).

How do I become a Front-End developer in 6 months?


by @adsieg01  | 17 comments

Iโ€™m an aspiring DN and my best chances for getting a job are to continue developing my Front-End skills until I can get a steady stream of income. Iโ€™ve never been hired for this kind of work. Before it was just a hobby but now Iโ€™m quite seriousโ€ฆany suggestions to go from 0 to employed in 6 months? Also I live in China.

  • New York City

    I've lived in New York City - Brooklyn - for over 20 years. For visiting tourists, the best neighborhood to stay in is NOT Bushwick. Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Ft. Green or Brooklyn Heights is preferable. Plenty of good transportation in those areas - subway, buses or Uber. Easy access to beaches in Long Island and New Jersey. There's plenty to do in NYC. Great restaurants, Broadway plays (!), and in the summer you frequently can catch a free concert.

    HK is a city of contrasts. You can spend your day in skyscrapers as well as on deserted beaches. You can eat as western or eastern as you like. You can find expats lured here by big banks and tech startups as well as painters and musicians attracted to the deep cultural scene. These contrasts create a depth that invites discovery and keeps me coming back. You'll just never know how your day will end up here or who you'll meet. HK housing is one of the most expensive in the world. Often compared

    Cons: - Traffic was something else! - Shiddy air quality from half the neighbors burning their trash. - The honking was super stressful, it's so loud even when you're at home or at a restaurant. - Many of the roads are really narrow which would've been fine if it wasn't for the congestion; crazy number of people on the roads. - Beaches = dog crap on your shoes, every time. - Villas get robbed super often, you read about it happening all the time on the Canggu fb page, but also saw it happen in
