How do you stay safe on public WiFi?

 

by @skatkov |  | 27 comments

Weโ€™ve seen some โ€˜coffee-spot listsโ€™ websites popping in, a lot of them consider wifi signal quality, some of them measure internet speeds. But i didnโ€™t see nobody considering Wifi AP safety.

If we consider co-working spaces, we would think that it should be safe to use internet there. But coffee shop are a different deal, especially while traveling in less touristy places. I would like to encourage community to gather a โ€˜Digital Nomad wifi access point safety checklistโ€™.

Doing work an a road we should consider safety of our computer. Itโ€™s not just a matter of your personal data, usually clients and company could be involved. I really hope everyone uses secure connection at least over the VPN while you guys are working.

There are very easy measures to avoid โ€˜men-in-the-middleโ€™ attacks and other nastyness. Lets list all the checks we can run against Access Point to verify it security at some level.

Iโ€™ll start:
โ€“ Go to access point login screen and verify that itโ€™s impossible to login with default passwords.
โ€“ Donโ€™t use wifi with WEP!

Can people recommend any eco-villages for visit?


by @skatkov |  | 7 comments

I have this stupid dream of building my own house in a eco-village (yeah, with my own hands). Iโ€™ve seen two villages and found people there very inspirational, they not only told me about their experiences with building eco-house, but they are willing to give me a hand with building one if i plan to move in.

I know itโ€™s not a usual idea for digital nomad to have a house. But group is very diverse - i already meet couple of nomads who have house in eco-villages, but they still keep on travelling with occasional retreat back home. So, maybe you guys have experience visiting those kind of villages? or building your eco-house somewhere outside big cities?

Or maybe where is some eco-digital-nomad-village somewhere already ?:smile:

Anyone changed European passport in Asia?

I have only 3 empty pages left in my passport and according to speed of filling, I have 6 months. I donโ€™t really want to go back to Europe just to change my passport.

So, anyone had this problem? is it possible to add pages to passport in Asia (iโ€™ll be in Vietnam, Thailand and Taiwan during those dates)? Or maybe change it?

Best way to transfer money to Vietnam? P2P?


in Vietnam by @skatkov |  | 1 comment

My verification on http://currencyfair.com has just been rejected and they removed my account. Just because logged in from Thai IP address to their system.

Showing my passport, saying that iโ€™m a resident of Estonia and iโ€™m nomading around all the time didnโ€™t mae any difference. No explanation, no argumentation, just plain โ€˜we donโ€™t do business with Thailandโ€™ like a robot.

So what would they do if i verified being in different country? Ip discrimination is stupid.

Any other alternatives that work with Asia? There is http://transferwise.com, which only works with India, Malaysia, Philippines and Singapore for now. I was more looking into something that could get me money in Vietnam.

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 you deal with the fear of leaving for the first time?

 

by @eddie |  | 32 comments

Hey everyone!

Iโ€™m getting ready for my first trip abroad alone (this Oct). I decided on Chiang Mai because I feel like it might be the best place to get my feet wet. Plus Iโ€™ve been planning on going to Thailand now for about 3 years. Dream started 3 years ago, started my business 2 years ago, finished college/moved out of my parents 1 year ago, left my part-time crutch job a few months ago and now I make enough online to be location independent.

But now that my dream is becoming a reality, Iโ€™m actually kinda scared. Just thinking about boarding a plane with only a backpack in my possession is liberating but also frightening. Probably the craziest thing Iโ€™ve done in my life and Iโ€™ve worked so hard to get to this point.

Iโ€™m sure that most people here had to deal with the fear of leaving for the first time, the uncertainty of what will happen, and maybe even some resistance from your family. Iโ€™m just wondering how you dealt with it? Maybe I just need to re-read some of the books (4 hour workweek, vagabonding, The $100 startup, etcโ€ฆ) that gave me the motivation and courage to start in the first place. What motivates you to keep going?

Thanks!

Is it too late to become a digital nomad at 40?

 

by @roadwalker |  | 36 comments

Hello, i am a developer from italy currently working in south of france.
I would really like to go nomad as i donโ€™t like my current job and i would like to try new experiences in other countries.
I saved lot of money in the past and i donโ€™t have wife/son.My only fear is linked to my age. Going from 9-18 stable job to earn nothing is a litte bit crazy at this age. If i fail as a nomad(n it could be probably difficult to find another job.
I have good knowledge of java/javascript and i programmed in the past with many other languages. I am also familiar with iOS sdk /android and SEO: i was not able to make good stable incomes from apps and blogs as side projects working some hours during the week.
What do you think about my situation? thanks

What place in Thailand has fast internet and beautiful nature?

 

in Thailand by @tomanna |  | 26 comments

Hi all!

Iโ€™m trying to work out where I should go in Thailand that offers a combination of strong internet connection with a bit of natural beauty (hills/sea - I donโ€™t really mind).

Iโ€™ve been in Bali recently and whilst it is gorgeous it has two main problems for me. First, it doesnโ€™t really support a lifestyle where you walk anywhere - the roads are dangerous and pavements largely non-existant. And, famously, the internet connections here arenโ€™t fabulous, unless you go to a coworking spot.

Can anyone with experience of Thailand please tell me if they can recommend somewhere thatโ€™s attractive to be in, well connected, and less-than-lethal for pedestrians?

thanks!

What's the best way to obtain a one or two month sublet in Saigon (or anywhere) on short notice?


by @asin.sam |  | 7 comments

Hello,

This is my first post in nomadlist although Iโ€™ve followed the forum for a while! My question is about finding 1-2 month housing. For shorter stays, in the past, Iโ€™ve used airbnb with some success, and for longer term stays, I assume you search the apartment rental market. Iโ€™ve done some 1 month stays at airbnbs, but I imagine one month in advance thatโ€™s inefficient because many places will have at least 1 day filled in the month you are looking and consequently wonโ€™t show up on your search. Youโ€™ll only be searching places with no bookings in the next month.

So, my question is, what to do in this situation? Do you just make the best of airbnb slash hotels, or is there a better way to look for one month sublets and the like? Iโ€™m looking specifically at Saigon but also curious about in general.

Digital nomads tax, how does it work?

 

by @homakov |  | 63 comments

Is there a lawyer here? Iโ€™m a Russian citizen and the last 2 years Iโ€™m living abroad. Which makes me non tax resident. And while i spend < 3 months in every country I do not owe taxes from my consulting income to any country.

Is there a flaw in this system? Yes I know Perpetual travel doesnโ€™t work for USA citizens, but everybody else here is in similar situation. Do you pay taxes and why?

Do you hangout with backpackers, while still working remotely?


by @jtompl |  | 14 comments

Iโ€™ve noticed that recently a lot of us tend to prefer the โ€˜slow-travelโ€™ rhythm, which is more about moving to a place for a month or two, and then living there, instead of changing your place every couple days.

However, what about those that still like the fast pace of travelling, with meeting lots of other travellers on the road? Are there any nomads here, that still like the backpackersโ€™ lifestyle? That is: you travel through a whole country by yourself; you change your place of living much more often; but you still have to work a bit digitally in the meantime?

If yes, then how do you hang out with backpackers and keep up with their pace, while still having to work remotely?

Related questions:

  • How do you choose which hostel (or place, area to go to in general) to stay in as a next one?
  • How do you maximize your way of meeting other travellers and your own travelling experience (by seeing other places, people and their cultures), while still having to work remotely in the meantime?

I like both digital nomads & backpackers, but so far, barely Iโ€™ve seen any digital nomads in the backpacker places or vice-versa. Iโ€™m wondering why? In the end, it would be a clear connection of Work & Travel at the same time, two things that a lot of us propably enjoy very much at this moment.

What are the best places to go if you want great hiking on your doorstep?

 

by @ani_goes_tweet |  | 29 comments

Where have other nomads gone where theyโ€™ve had loads of great trails on their doorstep?

France is absolutely brilliant for this (great way-marking, maps, and incredible terrain), and Britain is quite good too (but thatโ€™s home), I know Spain for all of its tributaries to the grand El Camino (but what about other trails? how well are they marked?) and Iโ€™m hoping there will be lots of trails that are easy to get to from Las Palmas this winterโ€ฆ

Where are the best digital nomad locations for hippies?

I am a Yogi, living a spiritual, healthy, vegan lifestyle. I have been a digital nomad for several years and am now more and more looking for places that satisfy all my interests and needs that meet my healthy yogi lifestyle.

Right now I am in in Bali, which is perfect for me:

  • lots of yoga
  • many high-quality, healthy, vegan/veggie restaurants
  • loads of like-minded people
  • i can live my inner hippie while hustling away for my business
  • online entrepreneur community

What do we need to provide for you to choose Croatia as your destination?

 

in Croatia by @mirko |  | 38 comments

Hello everyone! Weโ€™re a few IT professionals from Croatia, having our own companies/startups in various cities (on the coast) but all of us also own and manage properties for tourists (villas, houses, B&Bs, et.). We would like to use those properties and connect them with our passion for IT by making them available for digital nomads out there.

Those are all high quality accommodation so during a high season I think it would be too expensive, but off season (October till April, depending on the place) weโ€™re able to cut prices A LOT because our main motivation is to network with other IT people out there and promote our location.

Obvious advantage (we believe) is that weโ€™re IT people, so Internet connection (mostly 8 Mbit to 120 Mbit cable or DSL) and other technical issues would not be a problem like in other mostly tourist-oriented places. We also have personnel to assist you in any needs you might have (laundry, paperwork, information, etc); we have contracts with surrounding restaurants and probably could get a good price-cuts for your stay; we could rearrange some space to offices or meeting rooms; because weโ€™re in several different cities (like Split and Zadar) we could arrange a โ€œtourโ€ of several cities or you can choose to be static in one of the cities, etc.

But the question remains, does this make sense to you and what do you need to make Croatia your next destination? We would love to try and meet all those requirements if possible and would appreciate any comment.

  2. Red/raspberry fanta to settle stomach issues. May not work all the time but a couple of bottles of red fanta early on has not failed in settling my stomach.

Iโ€™d love to be by a beach & somewhere that has a relatively bustling vibe, restaurants etc. Bonus points for surf or a gym.

Anyone has some digital nomad horror stories to share?


by @ricricucit |  | 2 comments

Hi Nomads!

Iโ€™m looking for someone with one or more โ€œDigital Nomad horror Storiesโ€ to share with other Digital Nomads here (as a comment of this post) or even better:
in Berlin (actually outside Berlin in a beautiful workation retreat), in mid-August, around a campfire organized by http://coconat-space.com/ .

If anyone has some stories to share, Weโ€™ll be happy to host him/her in Coconat for couple of days in exchange of his/her horror story :slight_smile:

Thank you!

<15>P.S.
Digital Nomadsโ€™ horror stories are those โ€œhorrorโ€ stories happened to a digital nomad while travelling, while working. They could be about a client lost because of a no-internet-connection-situation, a important flight lost, an exploding server that couldnโ€™t had been reached, a transfer from-city-to-city where a Laptop got stolen, etc.

Anything that could remind that Digital Nomadism could become horror for non-experienced travellers/nomads.
Something that might remind people that Digital Nomad is a choice (with ups and downs), and not only a simple vacation.

โ€“ It can be an horror-comedy story or even have an happy ending :wink:
โ€“ It can even be a story that didnโ€™t even happen, but that โ€“at leastโ€“ includes a bit of realism (a sort of Digital Nomad Fabel :slight_smile: )
โ€“ It can have been happen to someone else youโ€™ve met (as long as the person youโ€™ve met is ok with you telling it)

What's the ideal length of time to stay in one place and why?


by @karene |  | 11 comments

So far Iโ€™ve found that 3-5 months is a good amount of time to stay in one place before moving to a new location. I have time to get accustomed to the city and save up for another flight. This also affords me enough time to explore the city Iโ€™m in as well as a few weekend trips to see nearby areas of interest. Iโ€™ve found that moving after just a few weeks creates a lifestyle thatโ€™s too turbulent for me to feel comfortable. Iโ€™ve met nomads who stay for 6 months - 1 year in each place as well.

What has been the ideal length of stay for you?

What are the real tradeoffs of becoming a digital nomad?

 

by @worldtravel |  | 23 comments

Hey Nomadsโ€ฆ I was wondering what your opinion is with the downsides of being a digital nomad? Iโ€™m not trying to be a downer hahaโ€ฆ just want to know what the reality is. I have been living out of a backpack for a few months nowโ€ฆ I came back to my native NYC and have been floating around Airbnbs for awhileโ€ฆ I could easily get on a plane and go be a digital nomad somewhereโ€ฆ but Iโ€™m worried about communication barriers, loneliness, not having meaningful connections with peopleโ€ฆ difficulty in dating, and really having a homeโ€ฆ If I did go somewhere Iโ€™d settle in one spotโ€ฆ Iโ€™ll be 33 years old in less than a monthโ€ฆ feeling the need to settle downโ€ฆ but Iโ€™m kind of rolling stone haha

Should I get a loan to get my startup up and running while travelling?


by @traveller99 |  | 4 comments

I am thinking about becoming a digital nomad. I already have a startup in my mind thatโ€™s ready to be build. I will make this website by myself, it should take me roughly about 2 to 3 months to complete everything. From that point on it will be a matter of time before it will generate a income. Before my website will make a steady income i would need money to survive. I do have some savings but it is not enough to keep me on my feet for half a year or longer. Is it wise to take a loan as a Digital Nomad to make the startup allot easier?

What's your approach to finding medium term accommodation?

 

by @andygreenwood |  | 24 comments

Hi everyone.

Whatโ€™s your approach/resources for finding medium term accommodation (Iโ€™m thinking 1 month-3 months as that tends to be the visa limit)?

Been building up my work this year whilst also being a traditional backpacker so moving far too quickly.

Next year is all about picking two or three locations and โ€œsettlingโ€ for a while.

Is the strong US$ affecting you?


by @freedomsurfer |  | 9 comments

Today the EURUSD rate is around 1.05, a multi-year high. While it was predictable that the Euro would collapse (it was always way overpriced), the speed of itโ€™s collapse is surprising. Itโ€™s the same thing with the Australian $, the Canadian $, the British pound, the Yen and many other currencies.

Are you affected by those forex moves? Will they influence your future plans? Maybe a change in destination?

What's the fastest way to become a digital nomad?


by @mirona |  | 18 comments

I just got laid off of my job as a software developer. I have 60 days to figure something out. Iโ€™m not very confident in my skills, though I have a bit of entrepreneurial experience. Itโ€™s just very hard for me to imagine making the leap. Where should I start ? Elance, Odesk, Freelancer.com, I also have a couple of websites I can try to monetize, though Iโ€™m not very confident in my ability to do this. What are the other options!? All I know is I must be free!! Please add me on facebook https://www.facebook.com/mirona.constantinescu or here: http://linkedin.com/in/mironaconstantinescu

Hi. We're Teleport, building software for startup people to discover and budget your next move. AUA!


by @sten |  | 13 comments

Hi, I am Sten, co-founder & CEO of Teleport. We build software for startup people on the move. We have released Teleport for Startup Cities, Bay Area Teleport and Teleport Flock to date.

Moving ourselves and our families around the globe we have become all too familiar with the hassles this lifestyle brings. Figuring out where to stay, what to expect, where to pay taxes or which visa to get. Rinse and repeat.

We mapped out hundreds of relocation nuisances we could fix with software. Once these get solved millions of people like us could benefit. So there was no choice but to start this company.

Over the last decade most of our team were busy building Skype which turned out to be quite effective making the world smaller in the metaphorical sense. We believe we can now rearrange the human population physically as well.

Iโ€™m joined here with my co-founder @keskkyla and possibly other members of our 9-people-across-6-countries team โ€“ depending on what you guys want to know.

Where can I donate my extra things while traveling?


by @livvyjeffs |  | 2 comments

I wasnโ€™t exactly expecting to be in Thailand - so I have a winter coat, a few books, and more clothes than I need to travel.

I want to donate or give these things away while I am in Bangkok.

I figure if there is anyone in Bangkok traveling to a chilly place - I have a winter coat for you!

And I figure I can give my books to some hostels - any recommendations?

What's the legal situation for remote workers in Thailand?


in Thailand by @flyonthewall |  | 16 comments

Hey everyone!

Iโ€™ve seen a lot of nomads here who are based out of Chiang Mai. Given the changes in visa rules lately with Thailand making it harder to do visa runs, etc. I have a few burning questions that I would love to get some insight on:

  1. Taxes - Does Thailand still not tax internationally earned income? As in, if itโ€™s earned outside Thailand, and stays outside Thailand, itโ€™s not taxed? (I read somewhere that this was the case but just need some solid answersโ€ฆ)

  2. Visas - How do you now manage to stay in Thailand for more than 60 days? Or do you just get a double entry 60 day visa back home from the consulates and then stay 120 days (with a short trip outside), or do something else? It seems like having to move around every few months can be quite a hassle, especially without a guarantee of getting in again. To frame this differently, what is the easiest way to get a longer term residency in Thailand? What is everyone doing these days now that the duration of the visa exemption on arrival at land borders has been shortened?

  3. Do any of you bank locally or is everything in offshore accounts or incorporated elsewhere?

  4. Is it possible to avoid farang rates after you stay for a while and most importantly, is it possible to integrate at all with the local populace given the language/cultural barrier? To put it differently, did you manage to make any/many Thai friends or do you mostly hangout with expats?

Just a few questions I had because Chiang Mai looks like a lovely place to settle down for 6 months to a year but especially on the visa front there seem to be some administrative hurdles.

Thanks in advance for any info :smile:

Coworking Camp is coming to Tunisia in November. Are you?


in Tunis, Tunisia by @matthiasezeitler |  | 3 comments

Quite happy to announce that the next Coworking Camp will be in Tunisia from November 2nd till December 13th.

If you havenโ€™t heard or read about Coworking Camp before, itโ€™s a temporary coworking space in a beach resort to escape the European winter. Lotโ€™s of information including some videos from last year and links to various newspaper and blog articles is on our homepage at http://coworking.camp

The final hotel has not been decided yet, but I wanted to make sure everyone is aware early enough (as last year a lot of people told me they learned about it too late to join), plus we have a 35% super early bird discount on the tickets for the next few weeks. (code โ€œiaminโ€). There are also some volunteer spots left for free tickets in case you want to help organizing the event.

The general idea is to bring a group of about 60 like minded startup founders, digital nomads and freelancers together in a productive environment to make new connections, share experiences and have fun in the winter sun.

I am currently in Tunisia (only for a few more days), but will be in Chiang Mai soon, so please message me if you want to meet in person to learn more about Coworking Camp. Or just have a coffee.

How to become digital nomad with pregnant wife?


by @yukkiname |  | 4 comments

Hello, guys! My name is Maksim. I am from Belarus originally, but during last 7 years I live mostly in Russia.

I spend last year almost like a digital nomad. I have been in Vilnius (Lithuania), S.Petersburg, Moscow (Russia), Ho Chi Minh, Phu Quoc (Vietnam), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Istanbul (Turkey). I spend from 1 to 6 months in each city. Now I am in Moscow and I pissed off.

I really want move somewhere (probably want to start from Thailand). BUT my wife is pregnant, 5 months already. I resigned from my current job. And I donโ€™t have another one yet. From relatives side it looks crazy to move somewhere in that situation.

What do you think, guys?

What does "full time" really mean when working remotely?


by @kltellim |  | 12 comments

This one is for those of you who have full-time remote jobs. I noticed @wanderingdev mentioned being an FTE for a US company, hoping she may be able to weigh in here.

I have a very nice remote programming job. Great team, and the whole teamโ€™s distributed. Iโ€™ve been working remotely for years now โ€“ but never as a developer. I used to do more writing-related jobs, where you get paid by the word, and hours donโ€™t matter.

As a coder, Iโ€™m suddenly paid by the hour. I am not a โ€œconsultantโ€ - but I still find it very confusing and troubling, and Iโ€™m trying to nail down some norms. Iโ€™m supposed to be โ€œfull timeโ€, which basically means 40 hours/week or so (43, but whoโ€™s counting).

I have a timer I use (nobody asked me to use it, and I donโ€™t share the time report with anyone). I used to stop the timer whenever I went to the kitchen for a moment or to help with the kid. Working like this, an 8-hour day quickly became a 13-hour day. Meaning, it took me 13-14 hours to get 8 hours of work done, and it was pretty terrible.

I decided to do a sanity check with a colleague whom I have good rapport with. Heโ€™s a senior dev whoโ€™s been with the company for years. He said that in an 8-hour day, he usually manages to get in about 4 hours of โ€œbillable timeโ€ โ€“ meaning, about half his time is spent actually working, and the other half is doing other things, which he says is important to stay creative/fresh and not burn out (I definitely see the sense in this).

He told me that when he used to be a consultant, he used to charge exactly per what he actually worked โ€“ but then he doubled his rates to make up for it. (I donโ€™t get a ton of money, Iโ€™m not a very experienced coder, and Iโ€™m not considered a consultant by any stretch of the imagination)

Soโ€ฆ I decided to cast a wider net here, just as a sanity/reality check. As remote programmers, how do you manage your time? What does an โ€œ8 hour workdayโ€ look like for you, in reality?

Do you have a timer? When you watch a YouTube video, do you stop your timer? Etc. etc.
When working at an office itโ€™s easy to get a fix for the norms - but working from home, you guys are what I have. :slight_smile: TIA.

I'm Marcus Meurer, founder of the first digital nomad conference DNX, AMA


by @marcusmeurer |  | 13 comments

Hi fellow Nomads,
Iโ€™m Marcus, the founder of DNX GLOBAL, the first conference for Digital Nomads.
Together with my girlfriend @Feli we have worked and lived as Digital Nomads in 20 countries over the span of three years.
At the moment we are working from Taganga, a small fisher village at the caribbean coast of Colombia.

Originally employed at several start-up companies in tech hotspot Berlin, Felicia and me left our jobs behind to embrace self-employment and travel.

Some countries were very challenging: In the fisher village El Nido, Philippines, there was no power supply until 4 p.m. Myanmar and Belize came with very limited Internet access as well.
In Brazil you need a local tax number to buy a local SIM card. However, we found perfect conditions for Digital Nomads in countries like Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore and most of the European countries.

Despite our constant roaming, we have an interest in creating services and products of real value to clients. When going on the road we started with freelancing and offering services like website coding, personal branding, and marketing consulting. We also run a German backpacking and adventure travel blog called โ€œTravelicia,โ€ in which we share our experiences.

To meet the wishes of other nomads and address the concerns of potential-nomads, we launched the first German DNX - Digital Nomad Conference in Berlin in May 2014.

This summer on 1st of August we are doing the first international conference for Digital Nomads - DNX GLOBAL in Berlin. The line-up for the main event includes bestselling Amazon author Natalie Sisson, TED Conference speaker Derek Sivers, long term traveling Digital Nomad Cody McKibben and international travel blogger Sabrina Iovino. The day before the main event we will do workshops to spread awareness of self-employment options for travel enthusiasts.

Ask me about being on the road as a couple. Ask me about work environment and setting in countries in Asia, Central America, South America and Europe. Ask me about the ups and downs in Digital Nomad life. Ask me about handling with common prejudices from people and the press. Ask me about the challenges and learnings being on the road for 3 years.

I am sure Digital Nomads from all over the world start to design their life in a way that creates more value for them and their environment.

by @fredperrotta |  | 13 comments

Hi Nomads,

Iโ€™m Fred Perrotta, the co-founder of Tortuga Backpacks. We make carry on luggage for urban travelers.

In 2009, my co-founder, Jeremy, and I took a two-week trip to Eastern Europe. Despite a ton of pre-trip research, we couldnโ€™t find backpacks that worked well for city travel. My hiking bag was a nightmare to pack and unpack. Having recently read the 4-Hour Workweek (and being naive), we decided that we could solve this problem.

A year later, I left my full-time job at Google to work on Tortuga. At the time, I paid the bills doing freelance work for startups.

Iโ€™m a medium-term traveler (a month here, two weeks there), rather than a full-time nomad, but Tortuga Backpacks has enabled others to take on the digital nomad lifestyle.

Ask me about making products for travelers, making physical (gasp!) products, online marketing, sourcing in China, the Canton Fair, trying to build a remote team, why I have $6,473 in Airbnb credits, or anything else.


And because I was asked in the Slack chat, you can use discount code LEVELS for 15% off any of our backpacks through the end of the year. Our flagship bag, the Tortuga, is a maximum-sized carry on. For the light packers of the DN community, the Tortuga Air (ships in January) may be a better fit.

Hey everyone.

My name is Mark Manson and Iโ€™m a professional blogger. My site is MarkManson.net. Although over the years, Iโ€™ve run a variety of online businesses and projects.

Iโ€™ve been a digital nomad since the Fall of 2009, making it slightly more than five years for me. (You can read what I learned from five years of being a nomad <7>.) In that time Iโ€™ve been to almost 60 countries and learned two languages to near-fluency (Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese) as well as studying a handful of others.

I love the nomadic lifestyle, but Iโ€™ve also been one of the only ones (to my knowledge) who has openly written about the drawbacks and sacrifices involved.

My girlfriend is Brazilian and has been traveling on the road with me since last summer. I feel like relationships is the next frontier for this lifestyle and thatโ€™s probably something Iโ€™m uniquely able to comment on.

I guess thatโ€™s it. Ask away!
