Introduce yourself — who are you, where are you and what do you do?

 

by @coffeeshopceo  | 672 comments

tl;dr: introduce yourself in this thread.

We must all get sick of the same backpacker travel questions when we meet new friends, I know I do.

You know the ones - where are you from, where’ve you been, where are you going, what do you do, how long have you been doing it - etc.

The novelty of answering these questions wears off after maybe a week, but they’re nonetheless insightful and no matter how much we hate them, we find ourselves asking others.

So let’s bring the dreaded backpacker questionnaire to NomadForum and introduce ourselves shall we?

**

  • what’s your name?
  • where are you from?
  • how long have you been away from home?
  • what do you do?
  • where are you currently?
  • where are you going?
  • what has been memorable for you so far?
  • will you go home anytime soon?
  • what have you learnt during your time as a nomad?
  • [insert your own question here]

**

No need to answer them all if you don’t want to :smile:
But the more you share… The merrier!

Is anyone here an "investor" nomad?

 

by @gizmocaca  | 22 comments

Hi. Newbie here.
Wondering if anyone here has expertise in being an “investor” nomad where you travel and live off investment income? I’m contemplating fleeing the rat race and wanted to throw out a few thoughts and ideas.

Have a UK passport so don’t get taxed on worldwide income whilst non-resident.
I’m thinking of residency in Malaysia (MM2H) or Philippines (Retirement visa).

In terms of generating tax efficient income:

  • HK, Singapore and UK don’t withhold tax on equity dividends or preference shares
  • USA doesn’t tax capital gains (but has nasty estate taxes on equities) for non-residents
  • USA debt securities (CDs/corp debt) do not withhold tax (w8-ben)
  • USA based p2p lending should be same as debt securities asset class hence no withholding
  • Eurobonds do not withhold tax on interest payments (look to have a spread of local currency bonds).

Would look to supplement by buying property (have my eyes on a few places in Philippines) to rent out. Would also look to invest in local businesses wherever I find opportunities.

Appreciate any advise or insight people might have!

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 haven’t been able to figure out how to make it a part of my routine now that I’m living out of my backpack in hostels. I’ve always gone to gyms, but I’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 can’t find the motivation to go do push ups in wet grass. Any advice?

Did you feel "lost" transitioning to nomadism?

 

by @levelsio  | 38 comments

I was wondering if any of you have had this while on the road.

The whole transition from normal life to nomadism and moving around different places has been super fun but also super intense. It’s also why I built #nomads, to remove those feelings a bit :smile:

From times I’ve felt super amazing and then super lost.

How has it been for you to shift from normal life to your nomad life?

Do you always have an onward air ticket when entering a new country?

 

by @danielgenser  | 54 comments

I’m looking into visa requirements for Indonesia and Thailand (our first two stops) and it’s looking like I’ll need to show proof of onward air tickets out of both countries to be allowed in. Is that true in practice?

If so, I’m curious how other nomads manage it – do you just buy cheap tickets out that you’re OK with not using to satisfy the requirement? Or do you chance it?

Any tips for sleeping in an airport?


by @travel  | 8 comments

What are the best tips you can give me for sleeping in an airport?

Hi folks! Planning a trip on a budget and I’m finding an 11 hour overnight gap I have in between flights where I can either book a quick airbnb at an odd hour of the night, or live the real nomad life and sleep in the airport!

This is the first time I’m able to plan staying the night in an airport, so I’m reaching out to know if there’s any “do’s” or “don’ts”.

Appreciate any tips or other viable options!

Thanks guys! Stay nomadic :v:t2:

Is it possible to be a digital nomad vegan?

 

by @gregbrand  | 20 comments

I’m preparing for my first attempt at being a proper digital nomad. One of the many issues I have is will I be able to find good vegan options on the road?

I mean, I’m not picky or anything. It’s just hard sometimes to really get everything vegan, as some waiters are just a bit ignorant and will easily say “no milk, no eggs” but then come back with bunch of parmesan on your egg-y pasta :smile:

Any suggestions and experiences?

How do you deal with fear of terrorism when traveling?


by @antonioevans  | 11 comments

I do not want to be an “alarmist” but today we had a recent major bombing at an airport & subway in Brussels. A few months back there was Paris. I am currently on my European part of this years trip and it is on my mind.

There are many places that are off the map for Digital Nomads and for good reason. Safety due to war or major crime. I am talking places like Syria, parts of Iraq, few islands in Philippines, a few province in Mexico, El Salvador, etc. But places that aren´t historically unsafe do causes concern to people, specifically your back home family&friends.

As a traveler how do you deal with terrorism or major crime when it is around where you are visit? Also secondly how do you deal with at home messages from family members.
