I am interested if anyone in the Forum has participated in one of these “Remote Year” style trips around the world. I see that many are popping up for 2016 as well and have not launched yet but there are probably a few ongoing that aren’t on the below list.
Some examples are:
I’ve also heard there are some short term options where developers and programmers can meet up for a week or more at a time in a given location and work together like http://www.hackerparadise.org/
I definitely see the benefits (community, logistics, adventure, creative inspiration, etc) but I’m just interested in people’s feedback overall. There doesn’t seem to be much info online from actual participants and their feedback. For instance:
What has been your experience overall?
Do you prefer this type of group travel over traveling alone or with 1-2 other people?
What are the pros and cons?
How professional and organized are the companies offering these services?
Do people drop out?
Would you do it again?
What is what you expected?
Did you save time/money?
Was it a better overall experience than being a regular Digital Nomad?
What are accommodations like?
Is it worth the premium price?
What would you change/improve about the experience?
Any other feedback?
