How can I monitor my data usage when I have limited amounts of mobile data?


by @littleshiva |  | 6 comments

I use a mobile internet stick that gives me 1 gigabyte of bandwidth in a 24-hour period. If I use it all up in half that time (easy with print jobs) I have to either wait it out or use another stick. What are some of the things I can do to keep bandwidth from being used without my knowledge? (macbook pro / Yosemite) I looked in the activity monitor and safari seemed to be using a lot so I keep it off now when Iโ€™m not using it, and I paused synching on dropbox and creative cloud until Iโ€™m hooked up to wifi. Any other tricks?

Has anyone tried RoamFree Ninja?

I just discovered RoamFree Ninja for connecting to the internet in Croatia. Has anyone tried it? Sounds good, but expensive. https://roamfree.ninja

How do you manage noise when working in public space?


by @littleshiva |  | 15 comments

Iโ€™m an introvert: people distract and exhaust me, and my ideal working environment would be an empty room and silence. Next best is what I have whenever Iโ€™m in my own environment: the space is never empty, but itโ€™s usually silent save for ambient noise. Working from public space involves dealing with noise levels that are, for me, entirely counterproductive. Right now Iโ€™m in a hotel lounge and was settling in to focus on a magazine layout job when all of a sudden they switched the music to something loud, upbeat and with lyrics. I put my earplugs in immediately, but I can still hear that crap, and my concentrationโ€™s shot. What do you all do to manage noise when working from public space, or what are your workarounds?

In my case right now, Iโ€™m here because I need several hours of electricity, not just the two hours max I could get at my off-grid location. My noise workaround is to come to town and recharge my laptop, then go back to the country to work, but for long amounts of time, thatโ€™s not an option for me (yet โ€” but Iโ€™m working on it).

Iโ€™m a U.S. accountant who works with Americans who live abroad, ask me anything!

 

by @olwagner |  | 100 comments

Hi everyone,

If you have a U.S. tax question or would like some U.S. tax insight on your business/structure, ask away!

I have been preparing tax returns for US citizens abroad since 2012. I can answer any question in US tax with an international flavor. I operate 1040abroad.com and I have maintained a blog at taxsamurai.com

I look forward to answering all your questions. And if you are in Ho Chi Minh City in December, letโ€™s meet !!!

Best earplugs for sleeping?


by @srg_b |  | 6 comments

What are the best earplugs the money can buy (or similar noise blockers), that will allow me to sleep on my side comfortably and not here people around me snoring?

Thanks!

Low Cost European Destination for August?


by @jcw |  | 4 comments

Weโ€™re thinking of going nomadic for a month in August/early September with the kids in tow.

Ideally, weโ€™d like to hire a two bedroom place somewhere warm (or warmer than England) without breaking the bank. Also, easy travel from the south of England (Gatwick or Heathrow) would be good.

Near a beach would be good or a place with lots of outdoors stuff for young kids to do.

Either 4 weeks in one location or 2 weeks in 2 locations would be good.

Both of us parents work remotely so weโ€™d need reliable internet at the place of stay.

Coffee shops or a co-working space would be a bonus.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

How is Croatia as a destination for digital nomads?

 

in Croatia by @jbroomeresearch |  | 40 comments

Iโ€™m thinking of spending August-October in Europe; Berlin was a strong contender, but Iโ€™m hearing good stuff about Zagreb. Anyone have any experiences (good or bad) to share?

Nomads in Split, would anyone like to have a meet up this month?

 

in Split, Croatia by @hannahvictorius |  | 34 comments

Iโ€™ve chatted to a few of you on the threads these past few days, and now I want to meet you all!

How about next Wednesday 23rd Sept? Iโ€™m happy to arrange it and was thinking To Je To would be a good place. Let me know if another date would be better.

Whoโ€™s in? If we can get more than 10 I might be able to make it an official Nomad List meet up.

Do you lock your computer when you get up from it?


by @anon82020850 |  | 16 comments

Hi all,

I have noticed that it is very common in coworking places to see computers which are not locked. The owner will get up and go for a walk, or even go out for lunch for a couple of hours and leave their computer unlocked.

I find this strange because it basic gives anyone access to your computer and all the information that is on it - mail accounts, social media accounts, your password manager etc, so it poses a potentially huge security risk.

For me personally I worked in corporates many times and there you can get into big trouble if you leave your workstation unlocked. It is part on my muscle memory now - when I get up I lock the computer. On Windows it is so easy because you can just press Win+L and the computer is locked.

So I am curious - do you lock your computer when you get up? Is it just something you have not thought about before, or do you think no-one will mess with your computer in a public place?

Does anybody have a home base?


by @ld |  | 19 comments

My boyfriend and I, from California, are starting our travels first around the USA. Weโ€™ve only stayed in a few locations, California and Colorado with Airbnb, and basically an entire semi-decent place to ourselves is $2k a month. And with payment securing our next monthโ€™s place - rent comes to $4k a month. Obviously not sustainable, and not to mention a place missing most functional items to live comfortably is not ideal.

Unfortunately, this has turned my boyfriend off to traveling in general. He proposed we get a โ€œhome baseโ€, live cheap and travel out from there.

Do any of you do something similar? Have a home that you stay in for a certain amount of time, and do trips out from there? My worry is that normal life will settle in and no traveling will happen. But we are thinking if we can be on the winning side of Airbnb (the renters) then we can rent our place while we travel, and come back as needed.

I appreciate your thoughts and input!

How do you handle working with clients remotely?


by @ld |  | 16 comments

Hello, everyone!

We are confused at how living in another part of the world from your clients will work. We are from the USA, do software/dev stuff, and having almost daily client calls (or with whom youโ€™re contracting) at like 10pm if we were, say, in Italy doesnโ€™t seem like a very ideal lifestyle. But sourcing clients or contracting from another part of the world will most likely pay less.

If your career is client or contracting based - how do you handle this? Do you just handle your calls at midnight? Pay your high home taxes while making less with a foreign income (as we assume would happen to us)? Avoid calls?

Despite all the blogs I read about traveling and how to make it work, it seems this topic is hard to find solid, applicable responses, or answers seem to point to making travel itself your career focus. Start a blog, do our own independent work, diversify our income, etc are all kind of unnecessary when we make good money as is, we just canโ€™t see how to make that work abroad with a different time zone.

We want to remain focused on our careers and slowly travel, but doing this in a smart way seems illusive!

i appreciate your input!

Where can I find cheap appartments in Split, Croatia?

 

in Split, Croatia by @joost |  | 23 comments

We plan on staying in Split, Croatia from Aug - Oct or Sep - Nov. My budget is around $600 (around 500 euros) for a 2-bedroom appartment. Is that realistic and are the prices on nomadlist accurate?

I started my search on njuskalo.hr and broker.hr. Got one response so far and the guy told me appartment rates start at 1000eur. In August he said it would โ€˜not be possibleโ€™ to find appartments in my price range because of the tourism.

I also looked at Airbnb. Some nice single room appartments there at 500euros but no 2 bedroom appartments.

Anyone who can point me in the right direction or can refer me to someone? Would be much appreciated!

Iโ€™m waiting for 4 more replies, so will update the thread when I get more info.
