Pinzolo

Italy

First ski in Europe! Broke nose on day 1. Sprained thumb on day 2. Caught flu on day 3. Dolomites were as breathtaking as I imagined they would be. Food, as per usual in Italy, sucked for me. Pasta on pizza on pasta on carbs. Can't girl get a veg around here? Lots of hand talking. Locals only hiking spot. Too many gondolas and not enough lifts. Italians don't think they speak Spanish, but tend to understand it anyway. I'll sit with these guys.

Gran Canaria, Canary Islands

21ยฐC 70ยฐF
Spain

Very diverse ecosystems for such a small island: desserts, dunes, rocky cliffs, calderas, white sand and black sand beaches, tropical forests y mas. Infested by roaches. Strong Nomad community. Weekly ultimate frisbee club. Heavy German outcrop.

The city of music festivals. Steep streets too cobbly for cycling. Learned that Spanish and Portugese are fairly interchangeable. Lovely views. Pretty city. Not for me for long term.

Streets are designed cycling rather than driving. A dreamscape. Biking is chaos. August is fall. Very expensive. All coffees served with a tiny cookie. Extremely flat.

Corfu

Quick pit stop. Clearest water I've ever seen. A bit touristist. Very expensive to get around. Very kind people.

Palomino

Colombia

Escape from reality in a dirt road town. Mosquitos will eat you alive. Use deet 40%, melt your skin away, and still get bitten. Watch sunrise and sunset from the same Caribbean beach where you can see snow capped mountains. Eat locally grown mangos and coconut to your heart's content. Very special spot.

Guatemala City

Lovely scenery. Prepare for food poisoning. Antigua is charming but too cobbly for running. Atitlan is a little lakeside fairy tale. Different lakeside towns for different vibes. Commute by boat.

Chiang Mai

28ยฐC 82ยฐF
Thailand

Elephants. Monkeys. Cheap clothes. Rain storms interrupted island life. Massages on massages. Trek through mountains. My first rice paddies. Spiciest food of my life. Lived and soup and salad and these coconut fire grilled rice bamboo logs only found in the rurals. I hate noodles. My first squat toilets.

    Nomading here is tough because there are no reasonable Airbnbs and finding a short-term apt is difficult. You have to ask yourself, is it worth coming to Barcelona? It's probably the dirtiest city in Spain, and a bit sketchy. There's more beautiful and cleaner cities like Seville where you can find a reasonably priced Airbnb.

  • Chiang Mai

    I really liked Chiang Mai but I can't put my finger on why. I'll try to remain unbiased so here goes. Chiang Mai is a dirty place with horrible pollution levels. English speaking is okay. I did really enjoy a balance of simple, risk-free living at low cost and acceptable quality of living. Many places only accept cash but plenty accept card. There's lots to do and it's fun exploring on a moped/motorbike. It feels as easy as Canggu with more modern appointments to get by as a westerner a bit easi

I've travelled to dozens of places and have lived in Mexico for >6mo, Guatemala is a whole different caliber of dangerous. Maybe I was just unlucky?

    I've moved here permanently. Kids are in an elite school for $600pm, and I'm the only non-Colombian parent. I'm surprised there aren't more foreigners. Going to Gringo Tuesdays is a very touristy thing, I only ever went once everyone is 25 and trying to get laid basically, and its P$11,000 a beer, my local pub sells beer for $P2,000 by comparison. The longer you are here the more you discover. The "centre" of the city is really from 83rd-93rd-115th roughly, 83rd has loads of great clubs and rest

    It's a beautiful little town packed with more history than the average tourist can absorb. I don't know where the bad (mad?) walkability score comes from but you'll walk through the historical centre in 10 minutes and everything is nearby. You'd be mad not to hire rental car as Montenegro is just plain gorgeous (especially this part) and you want to be able to drive around at your own leisure. Depending on your fondness for getting trampled by (cruise-ship) crowds, I strongly advise to go during

    A top city. Everything works, beautiful greenery (hehe), cycling everywhere, happy people, great nightlife... Lots to love about. For nomads? Not a chance.

    I'm currently in Lisbon and I must say that this city has been very overhyped in terms of cost, food and overall fun. There are a lot of issues where foreigners like myself are driving up the rent and we are solely blamed for this. The larger issue here is the Portuguese government is not using these tourism dollars towards their people.
