Picture this, Vancouver, 2013. There I am, a freshly minted music graduate, ready to take on the world with a tune in my heart. Taiwan calls to me, and for six exhilarating years, I immerse myself in the art of Mandarin a cappella. Quite the musical adventure, if I do say so myself!

But, as life's script often goes, there's an unexpected plot twist. My realization of being a bit of a novice in the digital realm leads me to the sunny shores of Los Angeles. Here, I dive into music production and education, soaking up knowledge and sun in equal measure.

Just when you think youโ€™ve got me figured out, it's back to Taipei I go. But hold your applause โ€“ this act isnโ€™t for music. This time, I'm conducting a different sort of orchestra: creating AI automations for real estate developers in Southern California. Talk about a change in tempo!

As a newcomer to the digital nomad scene, I'm eager to learn, explore, and share a local brew โ€“ always up for a chat about lifeโ€™s unexpected melodies. ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

    It's obscenely expensive for low quality service with kinda mean people. Not nice. The regulations and taxes here are insane too. You pay a neighbourhood tax, district tax, city tax, county tax and then state tax on every payment you make! The traffic here is insane too. And just getting from place to place is difficult because city is so gigantic. We talked to our hotel's manager here and he struggles a lot with the insane amount of rules California tells him to follow. It makes it hard to st

    Great for a visit. Beautiful scenery. Good food. I thought it would be great to live here, start a startup and be in the same time zone as SF, close to Seattle, etc. But compared to Vancouver in 2009, one big change that totally ruined it for me: Absolute zombie apocalypse of drug addicts and shouting/violent home less people. It was shockingly bad. The locals often visibly carry naxalone (anti-overdose medicine, I learned) because there are so many people overdosing in the street. Police were n

    Trying a month โ€” 3 weeks in, not a fan. Transient.. feels like nowhere. Faint smell of sewerage, not walkable, beach absolutely packed and at the end of the day when the sun backs off (June). Food and coffee is either excellent or terrible, little inbetween.. but thatโ€™s fine once you find the good spots.

  • Leiden

    I study in Leiden, and I love it here! The city is beautiful, and quaint enough that you can bike from end to end in 10-15 minutes. Because it's a student town there's also a lot to do here, even for non-students. By West-European standards the prices are reasonable. Pretty much everyone speaks English fairly well, and Dutch is not too hard to pick up on. The location of Leiden in the Netherlands is also neat: 10 min by train to The Hague, 20-ish to Schiphol Airport, 30 min to Rotterdam, 40-ish

    (It seems my paragraph formatting is being removed due to the length of my comment, so sorry you'll have to deal with the wall of text if you want to read this, haha) Have been in Bangkok for the past 6 months. I've been nomadic for the past 4 years across Europe & the US, and as someone who is used to walking everywhere and greenery, I found it quite difficult living here. I spent my first 5 months living in Airbnbs, which were fine for around $6-800/m, and for the last month decided to live in

Overall malaysia is not that easy for slow nomads (if you want to stay for 1-3 months) and I still preferred penang much more. This might be good place for family to settle or if you having base for most of the year with many friends around.

    Two weeks in Hanoi. Really enjoyed the city. Besides, the pollution, a nice charming city. Great access to all the tourist destinations in the north Ha Long Bay, Ninh Binh, Sa Pa. WiFi is excellent. Food is excellent. People are friendly. Not a nightlife person or coworking space but it's available. Cafes are everywhere and yes egg coffee is amazing. Definitely recommend.
