Hello, I’m a nomad based in Asia, but recently incorporated in Wyoming. Does anyone use a mail forwarding service with a Wyoming street address that you would recommend?

Hello. We’re a couple looking for a flat with great wi-fi for the month of October in Barcelona, Rome, Lisbon or other city in southern Europe. Ideally, the place would have great wifi, be somewhat centrally-located, near public transport, have a few shops nearby, and not be on the 3rd floor or higher (unless there’s a lift). We’re looking to spend no more than €1000 for the month. Dates are somewhat flexible. A whole private apartment would be nice, though we are open to shares and coliving. Available places left on AirBnB are pricey, and we’re casting a wide net, so would consider many different locations. Thanks!

I’m toying with the idea of hosting on AirBNB, in a city that doesn’t have a large digital nomad presence (Calcutta, India). What would the ideal hosting ad look like for a digital nomad?
My personal preferences:
- Clean (as clean / organized / decluttered as I’d expect a non-backpacker-y hotel to look like), so I actually feel like working. In India, this goes double for bathrooms; I’m willing to pay a lot more for a dry, clean bathroom.
- Fast, reliable wifi. Everyone seems to have a different definition of “fast” or “broadband”, so some indication of actual speeds / bandwidth caps / reliability would be ideal, but I never see this in ads.
- Things within walking distance (mostly, I mean restaurants / bars, but sometimes department stores / malls / coffee shops are convenient).
- A couple of different places to work / read (hammock + desk, desk + coffee table on a balcony with a view of the mountains, standing desk + beanbag, etc).
I know that’s a pretty specific list, and most AirBNB hosts aren’t developers, so much of this isn’t likely on their radar. What would you guys ad to the list? What makes you AirBNB over a hotel, and / or what would be a must-have AirBNB feature?
