How do you handle the constant switching of dentists?


by @leerosen |  | 6 comments

How do you handle the constant switching of dentists?

Any thoughts on how to deal with continuity when switching dentists all the time? Dentist #1 says โ€œweโ€™ll keep an eye on #12 and #14โ€, but then you go to Dentist #2 and they donโ€™t have the records (nor do I understand all the gibberish being spoken by the dentist). Do you keep your records and take them with you?

Also, what about x-rays. Some dentists want to take some for each โ€œnew patientโ€. Seems like having x-rays all the time canโ€™t be good. Do you ask for copies or what? Iโ€™ve been dentist hopping for about 18 months now and am beginning to wonder how to keep my 54-year-old teeth in the best shape.

Any advice from those doing this long term?

Can anyone recommend a platform for remote jobs?


by @chrisrdodd |  | 13 comments

Iโ€™m currently on UpWork, PPH, Guru and Fiverr but it feels like Iโ€™m grasping at straws here. It takes a long time to apply for each job and then wait for the reply. Even still, most of the jobs are small and not recurring.

I was wondering if anyone had a recommendation for finding remote jobs (as in ones that are recurring)?

I know of a few out there like remoteok and all the sites it pulls from but they all seem to be jobs for experienced techies. Looking at the job board today I see the word, โ€˜seniorโ€™ and โ€˜principalโ€™ showing up constantly.

My biggest skill is around video but I can do web development as well as a junior. Does anyone know a platform or group where I could find remote jobs more suited to me?

I appreciate any feedback. Thankyou!

Music thread! What do you listen to while working?

 

by @freedomsurfer |  | 31 comments

Iโ€™ve found that listening to certain types of music actually improve my productivity when I work on my website. When Iโ€™m trading though I require absolute silence.

This is one of my favourite mix:

Do you also listen to music while working?

Other places like Ubud, Chiang Mai, Vienna, Prague...?


in Chiang Mai, Thailand by @rich |  | 10 comments

Hi,
weโ€™re having trouble deciding where to go in the fall (September, October, November) or over the winter for that matter. We loved Chiang Mai, Ubud, Vienna, Prague, Lisbon and weโ€™re looking for a similar place to stay for 1-2 months. Weโ€™ll be in Germany and have a car. We wanted to go to Italy, but weโ€™re not getting excited about any place in particular - or we just donโ€™t know where to go. Any ideas?

What do we like? Pleasant weather, open minded people (whose eyes donโ€™t fall out when they see a black girl), healthy food (in restaurants and supermarkets) with vegetarian options, a chill vibe. Nice rentals (we use Airbnb a lot). A nice compromise between nature and not feeling like youโ€™re in the middle of nowhere. Oh, and no bugs or mosquitos please (they love us, but our bodies hate them. We get huge welts that stay for weeks).

Thanks!
Rich & Chinny

Where should I set up a home base in Europe?

 

by @tylertringas |  | 22 comments

Hi folks,
Iโ€™ve been nomading for about 2 years straight and Iโ€™m looking to switch it up a little bit. This year Iโ€™d like to set up a home base somewhere while still being able to travel around 50% of the time. I thought I would just put my current thinking here to to see if anybody had advice or input on it.

First, why have a base at all? For me it boils down to three reasons:

  1. Gear. Rock climbing, skiing, diving, trekking (and if youโ€™re me, cooking) require specialized gear. I have some of that stuff in storage in the US and Iโ€™m tired of over-paying to rent sub-par equipment. Looking for a spot to store my gear and easily swap it out as needed based on seasons.
  2. A comfortable default spot for work. Sometimes you just want to sit in one spot for a month or more and just crank on a project. I want a great setup that I know I can default back to when I really just need to focus on work.
  3. Community. Nomading is great and this community is excellent. But Iโ€™d like to have my cake and eat it too, being part of a local and nomad community.

So Iโ€™m looking at Barcelona, Berlin and Budapest. No I donโ€™t have a weird thing about cities that start with โ€œBโ€ - it just worked out that way.

Iโ€™m likely looking for a 1 bedroom apartment in the city center (i.e. Gracia, Mitte, District VII). It needs to be either (1) cheap enough that I wouldnโ€™t feel awful about traveling while still paying rent, maybe max EUR 800-900/mo (2) Or, easily Airbnbโ€™able if Iโ€™m gone for a while. Also looking for โ€œforeigner-friendlyโ€ setup without an extensive bureaucratic leasing process.

So my questions:

  1. What are the sites/processes for finding long-term apartments in these cities?
  2. Anybody seen any interesting other solutions to this? Like dedicated nomad housing? Sweet group housing around this idea?
  3. Anybody already have a setup like this that theyโ€™d care to share?

Also if anybody loves this idea and wants to chat about finding a bigger place together Iโ€™m open to the idea.

Thanks!

Has anyone tried to apply for a non-lucrative residence visa in Spain?

 

in Spain by @i_am_aileen |  | 29 comments

Hey everyone,

Iโ€™m planning on moving to Spain and Iโ€™d like to connect with those who have tried to apply for this special type of long-term visa called as โ€œnon-lucrative residence visaโ€.

Going from what Iโ€™ve researched so far, itโ€™s a good option for us nomads (more so: business owners) to stay longer in Spain (one only needs to prove steady stream of income of at least EUR 2.2K per month and that you should NOT work for Spain โ€” so letโ€™s say having a U.S. company and staying in Spain is fine).

So : my concerns right now revolve mainly on anyoneโ€™s experiences with applying for this type of visa. How difficult was it? How long did it take you?

Also, Iโ€™m wondering about how I can secure a rental space for a year if my lease depends on the approval from the embassy. Iโ€™m also wondering if Valencia is a good place to stay in?

What are the best ways to find an apartment in Barcelona?


in Barcelona, Spain by @tylertringas |  | 15 comments

Lots of nomads in and headed to Barcelona. Letโ€™s create a central place for resources, guides and sites for finding an apartment.

Iโ€™m headed there in April for 1-3 months (argh, Schengen!). So far Craigslist and Spotahome seem useful. What else is there?

Also any thoughts on neighborhoods would be great here. Right now Iโ€™m looking at Gracia which seems to be the spot. Probably avoid Barrio Gotico and Barceloneta due to masses of tourists. Iโ€™ve heard some good things about El Bornโ€ฆ thoughts?

Who is a solo-traveling digital nomad, who's traveling in a group or as a nomad family?

 

by @naii |  | 25 comments

It feels that being a digital nomad / remote worker also means a lot to be a solo-traveler. Iโ€™d like to see how much this is the case here โ€” out of curiosity. And whether there are actually groups or families traveling in the (digital) nomad lifestyle.

Schengen tourist visa - legal to work for home companies?

 

by @lefnire |  | 33 comments

So I know itโ€™s illegal to work in Europe for European companies without a work visa / permit. Iโ€™m also aware of the Germany freelancer visa, which lets you work in Germany legally for 3 years (but Iโ€™m not stationing in Germany; I want to hop hop hop). I see many digital nomads programming on the road, making income from American companies on a Schengen tourist visa. Of course this seems fine, since itโ€™s brining American dollars into Europe. But is it legal? Has anyone had experiences / conversations with immigration, or seen this discussed anywhere online? My Google fu fails me here.

How to get from Panama to Nicaragua?


in Nicaragua by @inannavega |  | 2 comments

Iโ€™m spending three months in Columbia and have a plane ticket from there to Panama City. The goal is Granada, Nicaragua. Unfortunately, I will have a bit of luggage on this trip, so Iโ€™m not all that excited about moving around too much by bus. As I will be staying in Central America for the foreseeable future, I will be able to return to Panama. What would you do in Panama if time were limited? Is it worth it just for a day? Should I return later without so much luggage and wait to see Panama until then? Any thoughts?

How do I handle the PayPal limit lift?


by @matthieudrula |  | 15 comments

Hi,
I have been using Paypal since Iโ€™m nomading and contracting. However now it asks to confirm my identity.
I created my account when I was in the UK, now slow traveling, my account is bound to the UK and Iโ€™m feel like Iโ€™m *****ed since they ask for information about my previous UK address.
They are talking about limit lifts. Anyone using paypal has a nomad with no home address?

What's the best US state to incorporate?


by @fuzzybabybunny |  | 9 comments

Iโ€™m getting sick of being a CA business because too many things need to be physically mailed in. My customers are all located in the Bay Area in California, but I want to incorporate in a state with low tax liability plus the ability to manage EVERYTHING online, such as business licensing, etc. Anyone got any tips?

Are you a remote employee, freelancer or entrepreneur?

 

by @vincentnguyen |  | 29 comments

Thereโ€™s a pretty good mix of nomads here. Itโ€™d be interesting to see if thereโ€™s a significant difference in terms of amounts of people belonging to certain camps.

Some are remote employees working for a specific company, others are freelancers who are picking up gigs here and there to fuel their travels, and the others are location independent entrepreneurs who are building businesses (however you may define it).

Which camp do you belong to? Do you belong in multiple groups? What does your past look like and were their transition periods?

I myself started out in the first group and transitioned into the third.

Is getting dental braces while nomading a good idea?


by @nunoarruda |  | 13 comments

This is probably a weird question but yeahโ€ฆ I want to get dental braces to fix the gaps on my teeth but I travel each month to a different city/country and I know I would need adjustments/tightening on the braces once in a while.

I guess I would have to visit a different orthodontist every time depending on where I am. Whatโ€™s your opinion?

Do you think there are different "tiers" of nomads? What kind of nomad are you?

 

by @marcob |  | 26 comments

I feel I have come across different types or tiers of nomads, eg: you have your backpacker nomad and then maybe a more successful nomad that is travelling without worrying so much about budget, the two seem to resonate more within their own groups. What different tiers do you think exist, if any? How do you differentiate the different groups, and do they play well together?

Iโ€™m curious to hear your opinions, and please describe what kind of โ€œnomadโ€ you are when responding. Thanks.

Where are the best rustic locations in Europe that also have fast Internet?

 

by @danielgenser |  | 27 comments

Iโ€™m interested in finding out about locations in Europe that are in pretty, rustic locations, but also have good Internet speed. Any ideas on where to look? Bonus if the locations are out of the Schengen zone. AirBnB listings of places youโ€™ve stayed at are helpful, too.

Thanks!

At the airport, at immigration/customs, what do you say you do?

 

by @lachicnomad |  | 34 comments

Hi all, Iโ€™m from Mauritius. When you pass through immigration lines upon arrival in a country, what do you say youโ€™re there for? The concept of digital nomad is relatively new and not many people (especially those constricted to the normal 9-5 job) will understand it. Do you say you work remotely (because one isnโ€™t supposed to โ€œworkโ€ on a tourist visa)? Do you say youโ€™re on holidays (but then that would be lyingโ€ฆ). Iโ€™m a little torn. Would love to hear from your experiences and get your opinion and advice.

Is Cyprus a part of Schengen?


in Cyprus by @jammingsloth |  | 3 comments

As a US citizen, does Cyprus count towards my 3 months in Schengen? Iโ€™ve read that the South is part of Greece, the North part of Turkey, but that Cyprus is not considered Schengen. The whole thing confuses me, would love any insight.

Anyone spent time there? Recommendations? Internet?

Any nomads here with chronic medical conditions?


by @danielgenser |  | 5 comments

Iโ€™ll start โ€“ I have had type 1 diabetes since I was 19 (Iโ€™m now 32). I wear a Medtronic insulin pump that stays attached to me pretty much 24/7. One of the unique packing considerations I will have to make is how to fit as many consumable insulin pump supplies as I can into my backpack/roller bag.

The more I can fit, the longer I can do without refilling in an unknown area (there is a Medtronic rep in Bangkok that Iโ€™ve gotten in touch with, but when your life depends on something, you donโ€™t take it lightly).

One of these little sandwich bags contain a single โ€˜set changeโ€™ which lasts 3 days.

At the same time, weโ€™re trying to consider our health insurance needs. I donโ€™t want to take my ~$1,000/month USA insurance policy expense with me in areas that it will not be accepted, but at the same time, Cigna Global and other such traveler medical insuranceโ€™s uniformly donโ€™t cover pre-existing conditions.

Iโ€™ve gone without insurance before, and in an area like Thailand, Iโ€™m thinking I can get by with just paying retail cost for medicine and any needed doctor visits.

Iโ€™d love to hear from other type 1 diabetics, or really anyone who has had to consider such medical needs while nomading.
