Introduce yourself โ€” 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, whereโ€™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 theyโ€™re nonetheless insightful and no matter how much we hate them, we find ourselves asking others.

So letโ€™s bring the dreaded backpacker questionnaire to NomadForum and introduce ourselves shall we?

**

  • whatโ€™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 donโ€™t want to :smile:
But the more you shareโ€ฆ The merrier!

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?

How to avoid getting your stuff stolen?


by @matthieudrula |  | 8 comments

Hey guys,
My question might be blunt ahah but โ€ฆ how do you get your stuff stolen?
Do you stay in hostels, or shady hotels? Or do you get robbed?
I stopped using hostel with outsiders and I pretty much only use budget hotel now.
I have heard about an app that take screenshots of your room and send it to you if it detects movement too so you can alert the hotel staff.
I donโ€™t want to make everybody paranoiac too ;).

What's the best digital nomad backpack?

 

by @levelsio |  | 93 comments

I hear stuff about Tortuga and Minaal, although Iโ€™m myself using a fake Chinese one I bought here in Bali.

What do you currently have and whatโ€™s the best?

2017 UPDATE: I made a gear page now:

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. Itโ€™s also why I built #nomads, to remove those feelings a bit :smile:

From times Iโ€™ve felt super amazing and then super lost.

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

What laptop/tablet do you prefer for remote working?

 

by @roberthopman |  | 29 comments

Hi,

as Iโ€™m looking into buying a new laptop/tablet, Iโ€™m wondering what everybody is using here for work and why?

Mentioning your profession or business, location, travel activities or anything related to this will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Robert

What does "full time" really mean when working remotely?


by @kltellim |  | 12 comments

This one is for those of you who have full-time remote jobs. I noticed @wanderingdev mentioned being an FTE for a US company, hoping she may be able to weigh in here.

I have a very nice remote programming job. Great team, and the whole teamโ€™s distributed. Iโ€™ve been working remotely for years now โ€“ but never as a developer. I used to do more writing-related jobs, where you get paid by the word, and hours donโ€™t matter.

As a coder, Iโ€™m suddenly paid by the hour. I am not a โ€œconsultantโ€ - but I still find it very confusing and troubling, and Iโ€™m trying to nail down some norms. Iโ€™m supposed to be โ€œfull timeโ€, which basically means 40 hours/week or so (43, but whoโ€™s counting).

I have a timer I use (nobody asked me to use it, and I donโ€™t share the time report with anyone). I used to stop the timer whenever I went to the kitchen for a moment or to help with the kid. Working like this, an 8-hour day quickly became a 13-hour day. Meaning, it took me 13-14 hours to get 8 hours of work done, and it was pretty terrible.

I decided to do a sanity check with a colleague whom I have good rapport with. Heโ€™s a senior dev whoโ€™s been with the company for years. He said that in an 8-hour day, he usually manages to get in about 4 hours of โ€œbillable timeโ€ โ€“ meaning, about half his time is spent actually working, and the other half is doing other things, which he says is important to stay creative/fresh and not burn out (I definitely see the sense in this).

He told me that when he used to be a consultant, he used to charge exactly per what he actually worked โ€“ but then he doubled his rates to make up for it. (I donโ€™t get a ton of money, Iโ€™m not a very experienced coder, and Iโ€™m not considered a consultant by any stretch of the imagination)

Soโ€ฆ I decided to cast a wider net here, just as a sanity/reality check. As remote programmers, how do you manage your time? What does an โ€œ8 hour workdayโ€ look like for you, in reality?

Do you have a timer? When you watch a YouTube video, do you stop your timer? Etc. etc.
When working at an office itโ€™s easy to get a fix for the norms - but working from home, you guys are what I have. :slight_smile: TIA.
