French-born, but grew up in South Africa - I've always had an innate curiosity for different cultures and countries. This has brought me to travel to over 30 countries, including most of Eastern Europe, UK, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Russia, Malawi, Denmark, Norway and many more... I just completed my masters program in Boston, US, and am now living in Florida for a few months. My work visa is expiring in September and I am looking to go full-time digital nomad with my boyfriend (probably start in Europe, since I have a French passport and him an American one), but first I am going to go home to South Africa. Let's connect! I would love some tips on how to get this lifestyle going i.t.o getting a job, choosing a place, meeting people etc.! ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท

  • San Francisco

    How did SF get scored #98 on Nomad score? I agree with most of the reviews posted here. I generally work from home, but we recently rented a small conference room for a meeting. It was $250 per hour.. (yes Per Hour... no typos here).

  • Los Angeles

    I spent 4 months working here during summertime. It's one of the best summers I have ever had in my life. The city is just amazing and offers dozens of outdoor activities. There are so many different places such as parks, lakes, hills, mountains, beaches, etc. Also, you can feel the Californication vibe on every step. I lived in Hollywood and I would avoid this place at any cost. It's just too overrated and won't meet your expectations. Hollywood (esp. West Hollywood) is a big pile of dirtiness

  • New York City

    I've lived in New York City - Brooklyn - for over 20 years. For visiting tourists, the best neighborhood to stay in is NOT Bushwick. Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Ft. Green or Brooklyn Heights is preferable. Plenty of good transportation in those areas - subway, buses or Uber. Easy access to beaches in Long Island and New Jersey. There's plenty to do in NYC. Great restaurants, Broadway plays (!), and in the summer you frequently can catch a free concert.

  • Arequipa

    I spent two months in Arequipa and loved most of it! Lovely people and a lot of nature around. The beautiful Colca Canyon is near, where you can also see the Andean Condor or book multiple-day hiking tours. It is close to Puno which you should visit as well and it's easy to go to Cusco from here, to see the famous Macchu Picchu. For working it wasn't that great, unfortunately, with slow internet and the available coworking spaces not quite as nice as I had hoped. It's still okay though, so not

    Really shocked by the safety number here. Cape Town is very safe if you act normal. The crime happens in the townships and not in the cities. Nothing to be afraid of in Cape Town as long as you're not stupid.
