Anyone have experience with in-flight wifi when crossing the ocean?


by @karlbecker_com |  | 13 comments

Iโ€™m curious about a few airlines, but Iโ€™ll ask about China Airlines since thatโ€™s my most upcoming long haul flight.

  • Does it stay connected for the duration of the flight?
  • Will there be any hope that I might be able to do real-time voice on it?
  • Iโ€™ll do text chat most of the time, but are any ports closed on it? I imagine Iโ€™ll use a VPN

Anything else I should be aware of?

Thanks!

How do you work without multiple monitors? I can only carry a MBP 15"

 

by @tschentscher |  | 39 comments

Hi Nomads!

Starting January 2016 Iโ€™m going to be starting a year as a Digital Nomad.
The last 5 years Iโ€™ve never worked with less than 2 monitors in front of me.
Sure, Iโ€™ve done some cafรฉ and hotel-room work. But all my biggest project has all been done in front of a stationary setup.

I do webdesign and development and have created a working habbit with several monitors on a large desk. Funny enough this is my biggest concern getting closer to January.

How do i teach myself to work from a 15" screen?
Do you find working from a 15" screen enough or do you have some kind of magical folding screen in your backpack?

If you have any ideas for me keeping a dual-monitor setup (The laptop being the first monitor) Iโ€™m all ears!

Regards! And thank you for this delightful Forum!

How to pack clothes for 3 seasons?


by @flyingscottie |  | 9 comments

Hi, hoping seasoned travellers can help!

Iโ€™m leaving Toronto for Lisbon, Portugal in 3 weeks. โ€œWinterโ€ weather there is described as Average 12-15 degrees. Spring "15-18 degrees, and summer 20 degrees up to 28.

Since I have one suitcase and a small luggage allowance - what do you suggest? I know that Lisbon has been warmer than usual in recent weeks!

Advice from Nomads in Portugal specifically welcomed.

Cheers

Any Apple users interested in beta testing my VPN service?


by @portable |  | 19 comments

Hi,

Iโ€™m a digital nomad (coming up to 3 years / 30 countries), software developer and run a VPN network.

Over the past few months Iโ€™ve scaled up the VPN network to include a lot of new countries (and popular nomad destinations) including Thailand, Turkey, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, India, Mexico, Chile and a load of others.

Several locations have been configured to route across Tier 1 networks to Europe and the US so should help improve international bandwidth. (often the problem with Internet access in some countries is that you have a great connection to local services within that country but poor international connectivity. By connecting to a decent VPN server located in that country and then routing across premium bandwidth you can often get significantly better results).

Iโ€™m wondering if any techy Mac/iPhone/iPad users in some of these locations would be interested in testing and providing feedback on the services. Iโ€™ll give you a free subscription and can work with you to give you the best connection. Youโ€™ll have a network of 50 servers in 30 countries to connect to, and with your feedback hopefully I can tweak the network to give the best performance for other nomads.

Iโ€™m not sure if I can post a link to the apps (donโ€™t want my first post to be seen as spam) so reply to this thread if youโ€™re interested.

What do I do with my piano keyboard?


by @matthieudrula |  | 12 comments

Hey guys!
Thinking about starting travelling but the biggest hurdle at the moment is that Iโ€™m learning and having fun on my piano.
I canโ€™t travel around the world without it. How do you deal with travelling with an โ€˜heavyโ€™ musical instrument?
Do you rent one? Or is there a cool trick to travel with it like sending it to a music school for like 30$ and been able to play there?
I really donโ€™t want to stopโ€ฆ

    Tokyo has so much to offer and so much to do. It is easily overwhelming. Whereas I usually take my first week to explore a place Tokyoโ€™s sights just kept on going. I remember ending up in a hidden cocktail bar, a mexican rooftop party with 1 meter margaritas, spending a whole day going only to French places(?), visiting a store that only imported 2nd hand hiphop apparel, and throughout it all the best michelin star ramen. It just seemed endless, completely unrelated and incredibly fun. Six wee

    Seoul is an amazing experience. Even though it's a massive city, it's thoroughly Korean rather than cosmopolitan and overflowing with authentic local culture. It's extremely clean, modern and futuristic with neon lights and flashing screens everywhere. The modern architecture in this city is impressive and beautiful. It wouldn't take much to convince yourself that you've travelled 100 years into the future. The food is amazing and you have to try Korean barbecue at least once if you visit this

    Don't believe the prices on here for an apartment. 686 usd/month refers to an apartment in a high class condo, right in the city centre and seconds away from the BTS(train station). Just remember this, people working at supermarkets make 2 usd/per hour. If you want to live like a local, then you can save a lot of money. If you don't mind a 5-10 minute walk from the BTS, then you can easily get a one bedroom apartment for 300 USD per month, in a high class condo, plus with free golf cart ser

  • Frankfurt

    Very luxurious yet has some parts of the city that are charming and have gothic architecture. A lot of tourists and people from Balkans who work in region. Pretty expensive. If you are not very rich just visit it and choose to stay in some other, more modest german city. In my opinion Frankfurt is city nr 3 in Germany after Berlin and Munich and I have travelled through much of Germany. Hamburg and Cologne are somewhere with the Frankfurt, but Frankfurt is more luxurious.
