I’d like one number that folks on WhatsApp and LINE can use. How do I do this with Google Voice? Would it work better if I switch to a Skype number?

Average temperature and ratings of the cities you went (and when you were there). Interesting to see if there's progression in the quality of the places you visit. Be sure to add your home country cities too to make this chart accurate.

Last summer I spent some time travelling through Thailand and Cambodia and jumped on mopeds to get around. I fell in love with them, the freedom, the ability to get off the tourist trail and see areas of a country not written about in tour books.
Recently a friend of mine cycled from London through Western Europe down to Morocco. His journey, stories and photo blog have all inspired me to see Europe by road rather than missing it all by plane.
I’ve been encouraged to do the same longer term through Europe. Next month I’m heading off to Spain to start that journey.
I was wondering if any nomads here are on similar journeys? Does anyone motorcycle between cities setting up to work for a couple weeks then moving on?
If so, have you got any advice/tips for someone just starting that journey?
Every accountant is going to tell you that you really should be keeping separate accounts for all your businesses and even projects that may one day become businesses. But in my experience setting up a new account associated with an actual business entity is a pretty annoying process involving an in-person visit to a bank branch, proof of residence in that branch’s region, etc. Has anybody seen a bank that let’s you easily create a simple business checking account online and more importantly that would let you add additional accounts and transfer funds between them?
Does anyone have recommendations to handle physical mail? In the USA, I’ve noticed various services over the years where you get a physical address that you can change your address to, they receive your mail, scan stuff and send you PDF’s.
Has anyone used these types of services? Impressions?
Hi. Newbie here.
Wondering if anyone here has expertise in being an “investor” nomad where you travel and live off investment income? I’m contemplating fleeing the rat race and wanted to throw out a few thoughts and ideas.
Have a UK passport so don’t get taxed on worldwide income whilst non-resident.
I’m thinking of residency in Malaysia (MM2H) or Philippines (Retirement visa).
In terms of generating tax efficient income:
- HK, Singapore and UK don’t withhold tax on equity dividends or preference shares
- USA doesn’t tax capital gains (but has nasty estate taxes on equities) for non-residents
- USA debt securities (CDs/corp debt) do not withhold tax (w8-ben)
- USA based p2p lending should be same as debt securities asset class hence no withholding
- Eurobonds do not withhold tax on interest payments (look to have a spread of local currency bonds).
Would look to supplement by buying property (have my eyes on a few places in Philippines) to rent out. Would also look to invest in local businesses wherever I find opportunities.
Appreciate any advise or insight people might have!
I worked out a few times a week back home, but haven’t been able to figure out how to make it a part of my routine now that I’m living out of my backpack in hostels. I’ve always gone to gyms, but I’d be open to trying bodyweight exercises. I thought that I might be able to do bodyweight exercises in parks/etc, but the past few days in London have been wet and miserable and I can’t find the motivation to go do push ups in wet grass. Any advice?
I use a mobile internet stick that gives me 1 gigabyte of bandwidth in a 24-hour period. If I use it all up in half that time (easy with print jobs) I have to either wait it out or use another stick. What are some of the things I can do to keep bandwidth from being used without my knowledge? (macbook pro / Yosemite) I looked in the activity monitor and safari seemed to be using a lot so I keep it off now when I’m not using it, and I paused synching on dropbox and creative cloud until I’m hooked up to wifi. Any other tricks?
For some of us maintaining a US Based Bank is just a necessity. Either we never pick up residency abroad, or have a US based business for which a US based account makes life easy.
Purely online personal banking is a growing trend. Schwab has a great checking account that reimburses ATM fees and has no international fees, Simple is a new online only bank with tons of great features (though not so great for nomads abroad).
Anyone know of similar services for small business online?
Features I’m looking for:
- Business accounts (not a human name on the account)
- Great website experience
- Photo Check deposit
- Cheap / below-average transfer and wire fees
- Cheap fees / minimum balance requirements
I prefer storing my cash in personal accounts or investment accounts
- Free international use of cards
I am considering moving to Ho chi Minh to work on some projects for several months. I was all set to go until I was reading about the issues with bag snatching and reading blogs about getting robbed. I lived in manila and Iloilo for awhile and in the Philippines and had no issues but I was also younger and more care free.
It seems like a good place to get started. But could anyone comment on the issues with safety.
I just really need a good cheap place where I can be really productive for 6-9 weeks and really take my programming skills to the next level. I was hoping I could do that in ho chi minh. But perhaps it is not suitable, I also don’t feel like stressing out about my bag all day as well.
I did chiang mai this time last year and it was good but I also got bored after awhile. Would Da nang or hoi ann be less stressful in terms of bag snatching?
