Are there digital nomads traveling by car?


by @patrick |  | 10 comments

My initial plan was/is to travel by car from my hometown (Groningen, The Netherlands) to South East Asia. This will be the best trip based on cultures, landscapes and achievement.
The downside is all the visas you need for the countries in the middle of this trip. The hassle and the costs.

The alternative, what is in a name, is to start in Costa Rica. Hitting North America with a counter clockwise round. And then the same for South America.

Till now a dream trip, but I cannot get them out of my head.
For my I rest my hunger by living in Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia for half a year.

But still looking t all the option for make this happen, eventually.
So, any Digital Nomads traveling and living form their car here?

What's better, a backpack or suitcase?


by @patrick |  | 17 comments

I am used to travel with my backpack. A logic choice when you also walk trails and such.
But while traveling for a few months now in South America, I do not walk a lot with my backpack while living as a DN.

So the question came up: Backpack or suitcase for the next travels?
The walk from hostel to the bus terminal is no problem. And a case is so much more accessible to live outโ€ฆ I think.

The case to go for me would be a Rimowa, thรฉ topnotch aluminum one.

What is you experience with a case vs. a bag?

Introduce yourself โ€” who are you, where are you and what do you do?

 

by @coffeeshopceo |  | 670 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!

How do we solve housing for digital nomads?

 

by @levelsio |  | 61 comments

Thereโ€™s been a lot of discussion on this recently.

Nomads usually stay in hostels, hotels and short-term apartments. But itโ€™s all not very optimal.

Iโ€™ve heard people suggest getting funding and building a network of houses you can stay at for a subscription price (e.g. Bruno Haid is working on that).

I donโ€™t want do physical stuff, so Iโ€™m thinking of building a platform around making housing better for nomads.

What are the housing problems nomads face? And how can we solve them with products/services?

Where are the nomad hot spots in Central and South America?

 

by @jb510 |  | 106 comments

The last few years Iโ€™ve spent mostly in Asia (Thailand/Indonesia) and Europe (Spain/Italy), but I run a company in the US and need to coordinate with 10 US based employees and business partners. The time zone issues between EU/US and SEA/US are exhausting even if I love the locales.

Iโ€™d really like to try romping around the Americas for a while, but Iโ€™ve never been south of Baja California and really canโ€™t find much positive having been said about remotely working from CA/SA as a DN.

I know some hippy, surfer, artist, musician, yoga teacher types calling various locals home, but no one making a living onlineโ€ฆ more than a few people have told me itโ€™s fabulous down there until you go to Thailand/Bali and then you wonder why all those ExPats are suffering in CA/SA. Of course you only really know when you go yourself.

Iโ€™d love to see nomadlist.io get filled out with more details on Central and South American cities. It seems really sparse coverage at the moment, but maybe thatโ€™s simply because itโ€™s not good and no one stays there for long.

How do you receive physical mail as a digital nomad?

 

by @danielgenser |  | 81 comments

Does anyone have recommendations to handle physical mail? In the USA, Iโ€™ve noticed various services over the years where you get a physical address that you can change your address to, they receive your mail, scan stuff and send you PDFโ€™s.

Has anyone used these types of services? Impressions?

To those of you that aren't technical, what do you do to earn money?

 

by @theblakemoore |  | 27 comments

Hey guys!

Iโ€™m new around here and thought Iโ€™d ask a question Iโ€™ve been wondering for a while now. Iโ€™m set to sample the nomadic lifestyle soon and Iโ€™m currently trying to define what my skillset is, and what Iโ€™m going to do long term.

Iโ€™m sure many of you have been through this, but itโ€™s difficult knowing what youโ€™re good at! Iโ€™m not a developer and I know there must be so many of you that arenโ€™t working in technical roles. So I was just curious, for those of you that arenโ€™t developers (or even those of you that are with an additional side-hussle) what do you do to earn money on the road?

Best noise canceling headphones?


by @matthewmagellan |  | 19 comments

Does anyone have recommendations for noise canceling over-ear headphones for traveling? Iโ€™m not quite a minimalist, but I do believe in โ€œfewer, nicer things,โ€ so I want something that will last. Iโ€™m considering the famous $300 Bose headphones, but after consulting with The Wirecutter it seems like I might be perfectly happy with a budget pick.

These are mostly to for plane travel. I get weirdly distraught by airplane noise on long haul flights.

Thanks! Also, this is my first post! :smile:

Iโ€™ve found that listening to certain types of music actually improve my productivity when I work on my website. When Iโ€™m trading though I require absolute silence.

This is one of my favourite mix:

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?

What do you think I should do with Nomad List?

 

by @levelsio |  | 57 comments

Nomad List has passed 200,000 monthly users this month, after being launched just a few months ago.

Since the launch Iโ€™ve worked hard to make the site better. But apart from improving the list itself, Iโ€™ve expanded by organizing meetups for nomads everywhere, launching a chat group, a forum w/ AMA with remote startups, a job board with remote jobs , and a blog with interviews with famous nomads.

I have a few more plans written down, but Iโ€™m mostly interested in your ideas where I should steer this ship, and also any feedback on what Iโ€™ve been doing right, and more interestingly: wrong. :slight_smile:

How is the weather in SE Asia from July to September (Q3)?


by @scott_brown |  | 11 comments

I was wondering why SE Asia locations like Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Ho Chi Minh City are recommended to visit in Q3 when they tend not to have much sunshine during these months. In Ho Chi Minh City, for example, thereโ€™s an 89% chance of rain and only 4% chance of a sunny day in July (http://www.holiday-weather.com/ho_chi_ming_city/averages/july). Thanks!

Is it possible to have children, while living a nomadic life?

 

by @manu |  | 27 comments

Anyone here has an opinion on having children, while living a nomadic life?

Me and my GF have been living on the road for 2 years now. Our businesses are mostly established and we are considering having kids within the next 2 years. The questions that come to my mind:

  • Can you optimize raising children like a web startup (picking a good location, school, doing a bit of home schooling, choosing languages, etc)
  • Is anyone doing this right now? What are your experiences?
  • Where are good places to live with children? I guess we would rent a house with garden and hire a local nanny/household helper.
  • Do you think itโ€™s an advantage for kids to grow up internationally with both parents being around more than usually?

Let me know what you think. I know Graham Brown is doing it with his Japanese wife. Sadly he doesnโ€™t write too much about family matters. Then there is also a family blog, I only recently discovered, but didnโ€™t get a chance to read yet.

The biggest objective for me is to be in an awesome environment with creative fun people, I want to make friends and have fun. Ideally I would love to share a house with other people.

What are the essential apps for digital nomads?

 

by @coffeeshopceo |  | 27 comments

There is a constant flood of new apps for perpetual travellers and digital nomads. However over the years, only a handful have become apps that I habitually use and actually benefit my lifestyle.

Which apps are most essential to your daily lifestyle as a digital nomad?

โ€ข Toshl - Personal Finance App for iOS and Android

โ€œMen lie, women lie, numbers donโ€™tโ€. My spending easily gets out of hand. Being able to track and monitor everything I spend helps me realise when I need to reel it in. Living / travelling in a foreign country where weโ€™re alien to the local currency makes it easy to treat cash like Monopoly money.

Over two years I have become seriously anal about using Toshl. I log every single 1baht expenditure.

With Toshl, you input each expenditure (in local currency) and the app will show your total spend each day in a home/familiar currency. I display my expenditure in USD because I earn in dollars.

I would recommend Toshl to every traveller as it enables uniform logging of your expenses and helps easily monitor a budget when youโ€™re spending in multiple foreign currencies. It does take a good month of daily use to develop the habit of using Toshl, but do try!

โ€ข Beanhunter - Locate the best nearby coffee shops

Hello my name is Adam and Iโ€™m a shameless caffeine addict.

When you rock up in a new city, you need somewhere to work from that serves good java. Beanhunter users rate and review local coffee shops. When you open the app in a new city, itโ€™ll geolocate you and provide a list of local rated cafรฉs. This app has served me well on all my trips, but it isnโ€™t very popular outside of big SEA cities yet - itโ€™s mainly an Ozzy / American thing.

Itโ€™s worth downloading even if youโ€™re not a raging coffee fiend. Beanhunter is free to use. If you only use it once every blue moon, finding a highly rated local cafe hidden in a back alley is 100x better than sitting in yet another Starbucks.

โ€ข Slack - Team communication, chat

Iโ€™m sure youโ€™re all familiar with Slack. if youโ€™re not itโ€™s the same platform that NomadChat runs on.

Slack is a relatively new addition to my iDevices. I originally had Skype, which I quickly uninstalled as it was buggy, slow and delayed message sending and receiving.

Slack on the other hand goes balls deep at providing a rock solid chat platform. It works seamlessly across all devices.

We also use Zapier to integrate Basecamp and Helpscout into Slack. Even when staff arenโ€™t chatting we can see one anotherโ€™s key tasks being completed.

Slack can be used 100% free, too. If youโ€™re still using Skype, stop. Seriously.

โ€ข Converter+ - Quickly convert metrics, particularly currency

Converter+ has been in my pocket since I left home. The app quickly and easily allows you to convert length, weight, volume, currency and more.

I use it primarily for currency. The currency rates update each time you open the app (internet required) and you can select your favourite currencies to be displayed each time. If I enter something in baht, itโ€™ll show me the conversion in GBP, USD, PHP, and a bunch of others.

Hereโ€™s a quick screenshot.

โ€ข Other worthy mentions:

  • Basecamp - not the easiest to use on iPhone, but when you simply need to jot down a to-do on an open project itโ€™s ok
  • AirAsia App - At least in and around Thailand AirAsia have a big presence. Iโ€™ve never booked a ticket via the app but I do quickly search for flights.
  • Paypal - Occasionally the need to see recent sales pops up (often CS related). Other than the occasional convenience Iโ€™ve no need for the app personally.
  • Vivino - Unrelated to travel butโ€ฆ Vivino is a wine community app (similar to Beanhunter). Wine in SEA, particularly Thailand, is overpriced and often not very good. When youโ€™re out with friends or on a date, snap a picture of the wine list with the Vivino app and Vivino will point out which wines are best. You look like a boss ordering a great bottle at a good price.

How to find a place to stay?


by @yesmad |  | 2 comments

My girlfriend and I are looking to find a place to stay in the USA for a few months this winter.

What are our options for finding a reliable place to stay for when we arrive?

I tried AirBNB, but got stopped at the verification stage, as I donโ€™t have social media accounts (what a stupid requirement).

Craigslist has places, but I know that this is just asking to be scammed by doing it online.

VRBO seems expensive compared to AirBNB, but I suppose itโ€™s an option. Does anyone have experience with it?

Is there anything else Iโ€™m missing here?

What's it like to travel through villages (European or otherwise) without a car?


by @archagon |  | 14 comments

Iโ€™ve been traveling in Europe for about a year now, and Iโ€™ve come to realize (perhaps too late) that some of the most interesting and peaceful stays arenโ€™t in the cities, but in the smaller villages. Unfortunately, I donโ€™t have a car, so the logistics of this might be a little tricky. Have any of you travelled for significant periods of time through villages without a car? If so, I have a few questions:

  1. How did you deal with transport?
  2. Did you feel comfortable and content, or did you get bored? (I assume that without a car, youโ€™d be spending much more time in the actual village than in the neighboring areas โ€” unless you biked, maybe?)
  3. What kinds of people usually live in villages? Is it mostly older people or is it a mix?
  4. How did you deal with the language barrier? I assume that English isnโ€™t nearly as common in villages as it is in the cities. Did you feel uncomfortable or out of place?
  5. Was the internet OK?
  6. Any places youโ€™d particularly recommend?
  7. What are some areas around the world where you could get around easily and see lots of beautiful areas with a bike or scooter? Iโ€™ve heard this about parts of Thailand and the Amalfi coast. Also, if you donโ€™t know how to ride a scooter/motorcycle, do you need lessons or is it easy to pick up?
  8. How easy is it to find affordable stays (via Airbnb or others)? My definition of affordable is no more than, say, $40/day, but ideally less than $35/day.
  9. Is there a good way to balance the desire for contentment and serenity found in villages with the lust for the multi-sensory spectacle and newness of city life (while not having a car)?

I realize itโ€™s a general topic but I donโ€™t have any specific destinations in mind. (Currently looking at France, Italy, Germany, etc.) I also realize that โ€œget a car!โ€ might be the optimal choice for most people, but for me, not only is it too expensive, but it just doesnโ€™t mesh with the way I live my life. So even if thereโ€™s no good answer, Iโ€™d love to hear any and all tips you might have!

Would you go the blog route or contract work?


by @redfive |  | 3 comments

Hi everyone!

I am brand new to Digital Nomad Forum so here is a bit about me. Iโ€™ve been working with Kickstarter and Amazon to launch and Argentinian shoe company in North America. I have designed things so that I have the freedom to move around if necessary, like a good nomad. I intend to be partnering up with a friend of mine to focus on a new technology product we aim to have manufactured in China and sold exclusively in the USA for the time-being, so I will have my hands full in the coming months but always open to new project ideas.

Aside from current projects, I hear that many nomads have been able to find online contract work with their unique skills. This would be a great way to be productive in my spare time, so Iโ€™m checking out my options. What do you guys think, given my set of skills?

  1. I am a photographer and videographer with terabytes of content. Iโ€™ve thought about making a blog, or selling my work, but I donโ€™t know the first thing about that. Can it be lucrative?

  2. Social Media Marketing and Selling Online. With my previous projects, I have done the A to Z of getting a product crowdfunded and selling online successfully and consistently. Maybe social media account management?

  3. I speak 3 languages (Engish, French, Spanish). Maybe teaching English over Skype? Iโ€™ve heard people are doing that these daysโ€ฆ

  4. I am also a computer scientist-ish, biologist and writer by education. Ski teacher, surfer and skateboarder by hobby. Any application for this? Perhaps Odesk, or is that not in anymore?

I will be exploring Chiang Mai, Thailand this week as a living option for the next couple of months.
Feel free to contact me if you are in the neighbourhood and want to grab a beer.
Thanks for your wisdom and a pleasure to meet you all.

Cheers,
Joel
