I’ve done a lot of research on foreign currencies and which are good to hold… its pretty complicated. it seems obvious, swiss franc, hong kong dollar… but when you look at if you want to open a swiss bank account they require a very high minimum balance, can charge you just to hold swiss francs, etc… anyone have a deep understanding of this stuff?
What is the best blog or podcast you know of for digital nomads and freedom seekers?
Does anyone understand the Panamanian retirement program? is there a way of becoming a resident by showing you are receiving income every month from investments and not from a pension or annuity?

Hey Nomads… I was wondering what your opinion is with the downsides of being a digital nomad? I’m not trying to be a downer haha… just want to know what the reality is. I have been living out of a backpack for a few months now… I came back to my native NYC and have been floating around Airbnbs for awhile… I could easily get on a plane and go be a digital nomad somewhere… but I’m worried about communication barriers, loneliness, not having meaningful connections with people… difficulty in dating, and really having a home… If I did go somewhere I’d settle in one spot… I’ll be 33 years old in less than a month… feeling the need to settle down… but I’m kind of rolling stone haha
Looking for a place besides Croatia in Eastern Europe to go to the beach… any ideas? Looking for a place that is exciting and fun and not too sleepy.

I’m wondering how many developers travel with a MBP 13" vs 15"? I currently use a late-2012 13" for iOS development, but I’m pondering the 15" because Xcode is so resource hungry. On the downside, it is rather heavy…
Do you travel with a 15"? Do you wish you’d opted for the 13" instead?
P.S I’m asking developers specifically as system spec is more crucial than, say, for a copywriter.
