Is it absurd to travel with an extra monitor in my carry on?


by @joshuaballard |  | 15 comments

Hi all, I’m about to make my maiden voyage into the digital nomad lifestyle. 2 cities coming up (chiang mai and Cebu)

I work online and can not stand working without at least 2 monitors (preferably more haha)

Is it insane to pack a monitor whilst I travel?

thanks in advance

edit: sorry about the duplicate, I found this thread How do you work without multiple monitors? I can only carry a MBP 15" and ended up ordering an ASUS MB168B+ after reading through.

This forum is certainly helpful!

What is the first thing I should do when I land in Chiang Mai?


in Chiang Mai, Thailand by @joshuaballard |  | 11 comments

I have been tempted by the digital nomad lifestyle for quite some time now.

I purposefully built a business that allowed me to work anywhere that has my PC and an internet connection, but then ended up renting an office and just going about life business as usual in the town I grew up in.

I finally booked tickets for a few months in Asia, and will be landing in Chiang Mai on the 17th of March

(which someone pointed out to me is actually the smokey season, which i’m reading about now)

For a first time digital nomad, what would you recommend as the first point of call when landing in a new city?

thanks for any shared wisdom all

Joshua
