SIM to use in Eastern Europe


by @itinerantdev |  | 6 comments

Over the next few weeks Iโ€™m visiting:

  • Prague 4 days
  • Bratislava 12 days
  • Berlin 7 days
  • Budapest 60 days

I am British and was assuming I would use my giff gaff sim as that has free EU roaming.

But I have been in Mexico for six weeks and giff gaff emailed and said if I didnโ€™t use my sim in the UK soon they would start charging their normal expensive roaming rates.

Soโ€ฆ Can anyone recommend a pre-pay data only sim/package I can use in all of these countries? Ideally which I can pick up in Prague?

How to get a UK residence address without renting/buying?


by @pavel_maximov |  | 17 comments

Background:
Iโ€™m an EU national IT specialist, recently decided to become a digital nomad. I just left my permanent job in Germany and opened a UK based LTD (for a better taxation) to start a new career as remote working IT contractor. I also want to become a UK resident and pay personal income tax there BUT I donโ€™t want to rent/buy a place because I have no interest in physically living in the UK, as a nomad I will be traveling abroad 100% of the time.

So I just need a UK address where Iโ€™m registered as a resident and could receive mail, but I would never actually be there. I could rent a place and keep it empty but that would be a total waste of money.

Question:
How do I find somebody who could give me an official residence at his/her address and keep my name on the door? Iโ€™m ok with paying a reasonable monthly fee for this โ€œserviceโ€ (but not as high as a rent), and give assurance in whatever form that I will never pretend to physically live there. I have no close friends in the UK to ask for this favor, and trying to propose this to a random landlord would be just weird since they are not familiar with the needs of a digital nomad.

Maybe you guys can suggest me somebody who understand the situation and want to make some extra cash every month to pay the bills? Iโ€™m ready to meet in person, provide full proof of identity or any other document, and to make a written agreement that gives the landlord the freedom to cancel this โ€œsituationโ€ at any time.

Note:
This is NOT for tax evasion, itโ€™s the opposite! I WANT to pay full tax as UK resident, I just donโ€™t want to waste money on a rent which I will literally never use.

I would be very grateful for any advice!

Pavel

Do you always have your passport with you?

 

by @stepunk |  | 31 comments

While traveling, do you always have your passport with you? Or you leave it in your room/hotel/house and go around with just a copy of the main page?

Best WiFi on the beach in Playa del Carmen


in Playa del Carmen, Mexico by @clusk |  | 1 comment

Been in Playa for a day working at Nest. Good spot - but I forget Iโ€™m in a tropical locale. Does anyone have positive WiFi experience with a bar, restaurant, cafe on the beach in Playa del Carmen? It doesnโ€™t have to be rocket fast - just not a slow, unreliable connection.

Thanks!

Does anyone bring their bicycle with them on their travels?

 

by @lamby |  | 36 comments

Anyone else keen cyclist or runner? Iโ€™m an ex-triathlete andโ€”whilst Iโ€™ve got my wardrobe down to a minimumโ€”Iโ€™m lugging around a rather large box on my travels containing my road bike. Am not doing the whole bike-touring thing, just using it for adventures, exploring, keeping fit, taking epic photos, etc., and taking my own bike is far nicer than renting.

Finding the balance between that and real work is a bit of a challenge, mostly in terms of a hard ride in the morning will mean Iโ€™m a little foggy throughout the rest of the day, concentration-wise.

Still, Iโ€™d rather use and enjoy my health whilst Iโ€™m young instead of waiting until I retire to do these things.

(If you do bike or run, do you also Strava?)

How to get into the zone without caffeine?


by @panoramica |  | 17 comments

Iโ€™m recovering from a stomach bug so caffeine and sugar, the two staples of late night development, are off the menu. As a result Iโ€™m finding it quite hard to get motivated!

Does anyone have some alternative techniques to wake my brain up and plug me in?

Currently Iโ€™m indulging in music but itโ€™s not having quite the same effect as the killer combo of coffee/music/chocolate :cry:

Can you create a foreign company and hire yourself as an employee?


by @matthieudrula |  | 8 comments

Tricky or really dumb question ahah.
So โ€ฆ I know that you can create a company in order to get the nationality but you need to invest a lot (depending the country 20K$ +).
I also know that you can get a visa if a company hires you.
So can you go in a country (picking Colombia as an exemple), pay 100$ to create a company and hire yourself after?
Or can you ask somebody (a friend) to create a company and hire you in order to give you a visa.
Does this visa last until you quit your job or is it just temporary (6 months)?
If you already have a company (letโ€™s say you paid 20ยฃ for a UK company), can you just create a branch in a foreign country and give yourself a job there?

How to make a MacBook Air ergonomic?


by @cpury |  | 7 comments

Iโ€™ve been working from my Macbook Air for a while now and finally started feeling some wrist pain. Some research suggested the absolute minimum one should get is an external mouse / trackpad to avoid those awkward hand movements to the built-in trackpad.

Now I could just buy a cheap one, or even one of those silly tiny travel mice. However, Iโ€™d thought Iโ€™d ask the experts first:

Whatโ€™s the best mouse or trackpad for a digital nomad?

Some features I would like to have:

  • Smooth scrolling, ideally a trackpad similar to the built-in one
  • If wireless, it should come with an easy-to-use charging method
  • As compact and traveler-friendly as possible

Nomads, what is your opinion on this?

How much does air quality matter to you when you choose your locations?


by @loniklara |  | 11 comments

Hey everyone! This is a question Iโ€™m asking out of curiosity since Iโ€™ve lived in South Korea for several years, been to China, Thailand and the Philippines and have recently traveled to Malaysia and Vietnam. By no means is pollution unique to Asia, but much of the developing process involves CO2 emissions and places like Indonesia and Vietnam produce a lot of smoke in the air by burning rice fields. Personally, this really puts me off from visiting these countries for any substantial period of time so I was wondering if itโ€™s a factor for you as well, or do you just deal with it - and if so, for how long?

I think Iโ€™m admittedly pretty sensitive to air quality because Iโ€™m prone to dust allergy, and especially since I have reaped the benefits of living in clean places like Sweden and Finland in the past. But I canโ€™t imagine this not being an important factor especially for people who have children or health issues. Iโ€™d love to get your thoughts on this :smile:
