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

 

by @coffeeshopceo |  | 672 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!

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?

  • Chania

    I've lived in Chania for over ten years now and I can't wait to get out of here. It's nice for a short visit but nothing else. Everyone talks about the hospitality and friendliness of the locals... that's only because you're a tourist and they want your money! They are corrupt, cheats, liars, and arrogant. They care only about themselves and are extremely greedy. The police are terribly corrupt and can't be relied on. The hospital is disgusting with stray dogs roaming around inside. They still

  • Tokyo

    Tokyo has so much to offer and so much to do. It is easily overwhelming. Whereas I usually take my first week to explore a place Tokyoโ€™s sights just kept on going. I remember ending up in a hidden cocktail bar, a mexican rooftop party with 1 meter margaritas, spending a whole day going only to French places(?), visiting a store that only imported 2nd hand hiphop apparel, and throughout it all the best michelin star ramen. It just seemed endless, completely unrelated and incredibly fun. Six wee

    Nothing does a better job of explaining LAโ€™s beautiful diversity and different neighborhoods than the documentary about the late Jonathan Gold, our cityโ€™s greatest amabassador and the only food critic to ever win a Pulitzer Prize. It is called, โ€œCity of Goldโ€ and if you want to know LA, just watch this film. Trailer link: https://youtu.be/DmKTRDfz1zM

    Well, SEVILLE is definitely my favourite city from the ANDALUSIAN region of SPAIN. The old town, the buildings and the view from outside is quite marvelous. It has a typical imperial feeling when you walk over there, or maybe I was too drunk. :) For nomads, it might be the place where you can stay for a longer period of time.
