Just interested to see a quick rundown of everyoneโs next stop. Where will you be going next and when?
๐ Averages over time
Average temperature and ratings of the cities you went (and when you were there). Interesting to see if there's progression in the quality of the places you visit. Be sure to add your home country cities too to make this chart accurate.

Does anyone know of any coworking space open 24hs somewhere around the world? Sometimes because of my line of work I need to be awake when everyone is sleeping on the country I am in (but I know I am not the only one!). It would be amazing to share that time at a coworking space with others who like to work at night or who have to be awake. Does anyone know of any coworking space open 24hs somewhere in the world?
Iโm in the middle of doing some research for our next destination within Europe and Iโm hoping to get some suggestions from some outdoor enthusiasts whoโve spent time on the continent.
My favorite cities are Innsbruck, Austria and Bergen, Norway because you can be downtown having a beer one minute and thenโฆ boomโฆ up the mountain in the middle of nowhere 15 minutes later. Iโm looking for a similar place to spend a month or two this winter. Places like these are hard to find because โmid-size european cities with great hiking nearbyโ doesnโt return too many relevant results on Google. Great adventure towns are usually in the middle of nowhere, the kind of places youโll need to rent a car to get to the grocery store, and places with good public transportation are usually concrete jungles. But places like Innsbruck and Bergen manage to combine the best of both worlds.
Has anyone come across similar places theyโd recommend?
Is there anybody who loves walking that much? Iโm thinking about this for about 3 years now, and since I finished university this year, I could possibly plan for this huge trip and start sometime next year. I have no commitments, no girlfriend, some money saved and pretty strong motivation. I like to travel low cost (couchsurfing, exploring cities by walking, cooking own meals, sleep in a tent if needed).
Small background about me: Iโve been working 5+ years (and still working) as a software engineer remotely (full-stack, web, mobile, VR), trying to not spend everything and save a little here and there (plus some index funds, mutual funds and holding few cryptocurrencies). Walking is big part of my life since itโs something like meditation, great time for creative thinking, research and solving problems. Usually my daily routine involves 10-20km of walking (some in the morning, some in the evening). So far longest stretch was 55km, aiming to raise it to at least 100km during next month. Also love to track everything (Fitbit Charge 2 + Gyrosco.pe).
Iโm thinking if itโs possible to walk around the world in 5 years while working occasionally during mornings or evenings (own web/mobile app, writing blog) and at the same time complete a PhD in Process Control (got an offer to work with great professor on an interesting thesis using augmented reality, for which I only need a smartphone, my Macbook and ability to once in a while consult with him over phone/skype).
I am thinking of spending 4 months in Scandinavia. I like to spend 1 month in each city but I am not too sure where the digital places are in those countries.
I would prefer a bigger city with some coworking spaces as I work better this way.
My boyfriend and I would like to spend a few months in Italy - nowhere major like Milan, maybe Tuscany region or more south. Iโve been there before, but not in a work capacity. We need decent internet both where we stay (maybe airbnb) and are hoping to find some cafes or work spots around.
I donโt see too much on here about Italy. And it certainly doesnโt make any list of โbest places for digital nomadsโ - so Iโm curious about that. Is it a bad spot for people like us that survive off of the internet? Is it not reliable?
I appreciate any insights from your experiences!
It looks like most people on here tend to go to the more tropical locations, has anyone done the opposite? Any digital nomad ski-bums out there? I would love to hear your stories.
Where are the good Ski-towns, with slopes, powder, cheap living and good wifi? About how much will it cost? What is the best way to get short term housing in a ski-town during ski season?
I hear more and more about digital nomads (mainly from the US and Canada) flying cheap (almost for free) by taking advantage of bonuses given by banks / credit card companies. Iโm not exactly sure how the system works.
Is it also possible to do for Europeans ? If so, how ?
If not, do know any other hacks to fly cheaper ?
Many thanks for your help.
At the moment Iโm scouting AirBnB for a good place to stay for september. Which houses have you been & can you recommend? Iโm looking at all kinds of locations.
Thanks in advance!
Iโm going to be traveling through and working in many countries in Europe this year and Iโm hoping to either use my T-Mobile iPhone 6 (should work based on my research) or I can buy a hotspot to tether internet. This way I can work anywhere and not have to be asking for wifi passwords etc all the time. Does anyone know a good carrier/plan/hotspot? Any help is greatly appreciated.
Also: Iโm always looking for great designers and developers to work with. Contact me if youโre interested. I have plenty of work for you
What are some MUST HAVES in a co-working/living environment? ** other than stable wifi and awesome people

Hey Nomadsโฆ I was wondering what your opinion is with the downsides of being a digital nomad? Iโm not trying to be a downer hahaโฆ just want to know what the reality is. I have been living out of a backpack for a few months nowโฆ I came back to my native NYC and have been floating around Airbnbs for awhileโฆ I could easily get on a plane and go be a digital nomad somewhereโฆ but Iโm worried about communication barriers, loneliness, not having meaningful connections with peopleโฆ difficulty in dating, and really having a homeโฆ If I did go somewhere Iโd settle in one spotโฆ Iโll be 33 years old in less than a monthโฆ feeling the need to settle downโฆ but Iโm kind of rolling stone haha
