How is the internet in West/Central Africa?


by @wordmonkey |  | 6 comments

Soโ€ฆ common sense says that the best places to work are those with good, fast, stable WiFi connections. At the same time, the thing I like best about my location independence is the ability to spend long stretches of time in places I wouldnโ€™t normally get to spend much time in. So Iโ€™m determined to make West and Central Africa happen in 2017, specifically Benin, Togo, Senegal, Cote dโ€™Ivoire, Gabon, Rwanda and Congo-Brazzaville. (And a month off in the DRC, but the latter will just be an offline holiday.)

If anyone has any experience with the reliability of the Internet in the region and the availability of data SIM cards in any of the countries Iโ€™ve mentioned, Iโ€™d be super grateful about insights, tipps and heads-ups, AirBnB recommendations, et cetera. I know itโ€™s not going to be a fast, luxurious, spotless connection for most of the time, and thatโ€™s fine, I just need it to be mostly reliable, speed is secondary.

Thanks :slight_smile:

Best places to live in Madagascar


in Madagascar by @wordmonkey |  | 2 comments

Iโ€™ve been toying with the thought of spending a month or three in Madagascar next year, but the capital doesnโ€™t seem excessively appealing. Any recommendations for nice places to stay? (Ideally reasonably large โ€“ large enough to be represented on AirBnB, at least --, but pleasant.)

(If anyone else is planning to head that way sometime after February 2017, get in touch too! :slight_smile: )

Has anyone tried Spotahome?


by @wordmonkey |  | 0 comments

Heya,

Iโ€™m looking into renting a flat in Istanbul for the somewhat longer term (between half a year and a whole year) from next spring, and Iโ€™ve come across spotahome.com, which seems to have quite a range of promising properties available in a number of cities, including Istanbul. The concept appears to be similar to Airbnb, with the exception that the site staff act as agents between you and the landlord to set up the initial arrangement; afterwards, everything is handled directly with the owner of the property. It also appears a bit more geared towards longer-term rentals compared to Airbnb. Has anyone used this site before? (Iโ€™ve run a search with only one result, so I assume the page is either fairly new or not very successfulโ€ฆ)

Cheers
Sylvie

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!

How do you avoid getting charged large fees by your bank when withdrawing overseas?


by @creative_nomad_ |  | 14 comments

Hi All,

My question is about banking when it comes to being overseas/working etc. How do you avoid getting charged large fees by your bank when withdrawing overseas?

Iโ€™m originally from Australia and do my banking still in Australia. I live in the UK and most recently was living in Vietnam where I found I had to withdrawl money just to get charged very large amounts from my Aussie bank.

How do you get around this? What can you recommend.

Thanks

Can you name some destinations where hardly anyone smokes?

 

by @ani_goes_tweet |  | 24 comments

Iโ€™m dying to spend some time in a beautiful place (especially a place with mountains and a good climate) where itโ€™s possible to enjoy the outdoor cafe culture without breathing in lots of secondhand smoke! There must be some places that are kinder to non-smokers than others.

Any suggestions?

(Bhutan is no goodโ€ฆ its daily tourist visa is way out of my reach!)

Any digital agency owners living the nomad lifestyle?


by @nicolas |  | 9 comments

Iโ€™d like to get into conversations with other agency owners with employees, or even create a mastermind group and share experiences around questions like:

  • how you manage teams remotely
  • how you keep them motivated without daily face-to-face discussions
  • how you find and work with customers remotely
  • whether your goal is growth and exit or just lifestyle entrepreneurship
  • etc.

Anyone interested? Thanks!
