Would it be advisable or wacky to lug an external monitor from the US in hopes of avoiding coworking costs by working from Airbnb with decent wifi? I’m not sold on coworking spaces, and like the solitude of coding away in my own little airbnb space. One screen is limiting to productivity, hence the love of an external monitor. Thoughts?

We are at the beginning of a very interesting journey to eventually establish work spaces and accommodation in Panama.
But before we start, we’d love to figure out how Panama is perceived by you, US time zone and currency are any advantages ? Would you prefer more urbanic or beachfront locations ?
All feedback will be highly appreciated.
we plan to work from Lisbon from mid of April to mid of June this year and were wondering if anyone knows how to find a short-term apartment. AirBnB does not really offer much under 1000 Euro, which seems a bit high to us.
We are looking for a 1-bedroom apartment close to the city centre - budget: max 800 Euro. Can someone help?
Thanks! Jenny & Sebastian
Starting January 2016 I’m going to be starting a year as a Digital Nomad.
The last 5 years I’ve never worked with less than 2 monitors in front of me.
Sure, I’ve done some café and hotel-room work. But all my biggest project has all been done in front of a stationary setup.
I do webdesign and development and have created a working habbit with several monitors on a large desk. Funny enough this is my biggest concern getting closer to January.
How do i teach myself to work from a 15" screen?
Do you find working from a 15" screen enough or do you have some kind of magical folding screen in your backpack?
If you have any ideas for me keeping a dual-monitor setup (The laptop being the first monitor) I’m all ears!
Regards! And thank you for this delightful Forum!
I didn’t become a nomad, but I joined Nomad Forum to understand more about it. I have been freelancing remotely thru Elance for the last two years so I would like to know if there are other who have been impacted by their merge with Odesk and migration to Upwork.com. Just curious to hear more about it.
Does anyone know of a service where I can buy SIM cards for countries before actually getting to the country? My mobile coverage doesn’t work most places out of the US (or it’s an exorbitant cost). I just want to land in the country, and pop in a SIM card right at the airport.
Since I started travelling 6 months ago, I’ve used Airbnb a lot to find apartments. I’ve had some great experiences but enough bad ones to start wondering about the whole system. Arriving at places to find they are nothing like described, even when they have scores of glowing reviews is not good.
Even though Airbnb have done all in their power to help out when I’ve had issues, I’d rather avoid these situations in the first place. I want to arrive at a place to find it’s what I’ve paid for so I can get to work rather than spend time resolving issues.
Do other people have any system for finding places on Airbnb? Do you use recommendations, send the hosts a checklist or have any other methods? Or do you just not care so long as you have a roof over your head?
