Hi :) Iโ€™m Lauren from South Carolina, USA. I travel for about 6 months out of the year sometimes bringing along my dog Bobby. Iโ€™m learning Spanish in the hopes of being able to make better connections with locals while traveling. I enjoy playing tennis, walks, coffee, and beach days. This year Iโ€™m planning to travel to Argentina for 3 months starting in September! Would love to meet up or share recommendations!

    Love it! Don't expect them to speak English, that is NOT their native language. If you're going to go, learn some Spanish and respect their culture. No gentrification in Mexico, please.

    I recently visited Amsterdam for the third time (and the first time since 2018). I personally think it's a little overrated, but a cool place to visit nonetheless. The architecture is beautiful, and there are lots of good places to eat. I don't like the main area of the canals in the city centre; it smells of weed and is often packed. However, the outer edges - such as the Jordaan district - are less busy and more interesting in my opinion. One thing that surprised me is how much trash was o

    This city is not for everyone, if you like shopping malls and big crowded cities it is for you. It may be cheap but if you want to live in a good location with swimming pool, go to nice rooftops and restaurants, use taxis then it is similar cost to western countries. In many areas there are no sidewalks, big and dangerous traffic all the time, pollution, taxis do not want to go with meter, it can get really hot. Definitely try to live by the metro. Many foreigners, mostly friendly people, cheap

  • Brussels

    Super expensive city, with some nice tourist attractions. Wouldn't recommend staying here for a longer time as price levels are almost Parisienne. Also, you can easily see all the good spots within 3 days or so. Pros: - nice tourist attractions (quite a couple of them) - many food options - people are open & friendly Cons: - hella expensive - limited vegan food options - you should at least understand some Dutch or French to survive here

  • Cologne

    Although I would not praise Cologne as the top destination for digital nomads I have certain doubts about some negative aspects listed here. Hospitals: How can hospitals be pretty bad if Germany has one of the best medical systems in the world? This judgments compares it with remote 3rd world cities which is by definition not logical. Germany, and therefore also Cologne, has most likely the best emergency system in the world (ambulance must arrive within max. 12 minutes - independent of traffi

  • Berlin

    Berlin used to be nomad base in Europe... but it's not the same anymore. The 'pandemic' changed many things -- the cost of course, but also the culture -- the freedom and liberty have been contained. The police presence and size of the state have grown -- definitely doesn't feel so relaxed anymore. It's also important to note here -- there is limited ambition. Most are looking for an easy, fun and peaceful life -- which is great, but if you are building something or running a business it can fee

  • Playa del Carmen

    Playa has been really good to me. The digital nomad community (at least over my winter stay) has been INCREDIBLE. Join the Facebook groups, find the WhatsApp groups - itโ€™s so easy to meet others. The beach is ok, seaweed isnโ€™t as bad in winter but itโ€™s very visible and does smell. It rarely kills my beach day. The city has so many conveinces and is very walkable - itโ€™s perfect for someone looking to work and enjoy themselves. Internet has been stable and fast. I get itโ€™s not authentic,

    Decent city, mainly because the people are so kind. But, it is a pain to get cash (spent a few hours every couple weeks trying Western Union after WU and never finding one with enough cash), and a lot of places don't take cards/the current exchange rate is a ripoff. However, BRING REPELLENT. The place is littered with mosquitos, and my partner and I both contracted dengue. He ended up in the hospital, and it was not a blast. The healthcare system is decent, but long wait times even in the nicest

    Came here for 10 days in May 2024. It feel like its a town that caters to tourist, i.e. lots of western restaurants, tours, and some locals speak decent english. However, it was not crowded and definitely feels like a sleepy relaxed town with a decent amount of attractions. I noticed even Lao tourist in LP. I didn't have any issues with Wifi working remotely here.
