Any recommendation on accommodations in Cape Town?


in Cape Town , South Africa by @danielletom 6yr  | 3 comments

Hey guys,

Iโ€™m looking at heading to Cape Town in February/March. I am looking for a long term accomodation for about three months. I checked out GumTree and StayinCapeTown, but I was wondering if you had any more reccomendations on where to look! Airbnb is quite expensive and sparse.

Also, I would love to know your favourite areas in the city and hear about your experiences :slight_smile:

Thanks !

Hi Danielle,

We have a 14-room house full of expats and entrepreneurs in Camps Bay, one of the coolest area in Cape Town, 5 minutes from the Beach :slight_smile:

The areas that most expats favor are the City Center / Sea Point / Green Point / Camps Bay / Woodstock / Observatory.

Cheers,

Romain

What features would you like to see on Nomad List?


by @levelsio 1yr 1 year ago  | 3 comments

Hi everyone,

I would love to hear what you'd like me to build next on Nomad List, or any other product/feature feedback ideas you have.

It's been 6+ years now but I'm in this for the long term and with the boost remote work got last year it's even more exciting to work on Nomad List than ever.

Current roadmap is here: twitter.com/levelsio/status/1363204985488572417?s=20 and pbs.twimg.com/media/EusS9PKXEAUR8xp?format=jpg&name=4096x4096

The next products/features I have planned:

- ๐Ÿ›‚ Rebase: visa, residency and immigration services for remote workers

- ๐ŸŽ“Courses: learn the steps how to go remote and travel/relocate

- ๐Ÿ› Gov liaison: diplomacy services to the governments to help us lobby for nomads and for them to attract remote workers

Thanks a lot!

List of Visa/Residency Information in Table/Spreadsheet format?


by @innovatelife 1yr 1 year ago  | 2 comments

As part of signing up for this website I was hoping I would come across a list of Visa and/or Residency requirements by country ideally in a table format to assist with decision making. Does anybody recommend any other websites that might present the information in this format (or Google Spreadsheet)?

Most Walkable Neighborhood / City In The World ?


by @dannybooboo 1yr 1 year ago  | 1 comment

I love living in walkable areas of town. I can always find them. But now I'm wondering where in the world are the most walkable places? I'm imagining walk streets (no cars), zoning allowing both business and residential, parks or beaches ,etc.

Any nomads in Arizona, US?


in Netherlands by @info132 1yr 1 year ago  | 4 comments

Hi guys,

After the Netherlands, the Bay Area, Colorado and being on the van life for 8 months, I am now in Sedona, AZ with a few other digital nomads. We are sharing a home here and are wondering if there are more like minded people in the area.

We do a bunch of hikes and campouts in the northern of Arizona. If you would like to connect with us, please do so :)

Are there any tax issues I have to be aware of?


in Germany by @clara 1yr 1 year ago  | 0 comments

Hi everybody. I live and work in Germany and want to go to Canary Islands for 6 months to work from there. I'm going to keep my current job, just change the "home" in the home office part of things. Are there any tax issues I have to be aware of? I was reading about becoming a residence after 183 days, thus having to pay taxes there plus my employer having to register there. Does anybody know how it works exactly? Thanks a lot!

What's the best bank for South African digital nomads?


in South Africa by @kirst85 4yr 4 years ago  | 12 comments

Iโ€™m a South African about to become a Nomad next year. I will still be employed by a South African company and receive a salary into my FNB bank account monthly.

I will be mostly based in Serbia but plan on travelling a lot. Does anyone have any advice on the best bank account to have? Is there a way to not get charged a small fortune in ATM charges and avoid getting my account frozen for using it in lots of countries?

Iโ€™m unsure of the best way to handle things. Should I try get another bank account outside of SA (Can I even do that)? I also have a British Passport if that makes a difference.

If any of you have any experienced advice I would be very grateful, Thanks in advance!

What Are The Safest Neighborhoods To Live in Cape Town?


in Cape Town , South Africa by @justinbosco 5yr 5 years ago  | 3 comments

Hi all! My girlfriend and I would like to spend a month in Cape Town in August and are researching the safest neighborhoods to live in. Weโ€™d like to get an Airbnb but weโ€™re curious if anyone has any advice on where we should be looking? Weโ€™ve read a lot about Cape Town in our research, both good and bad. Any tips from people who have experience living in the city beyond a weekend resort stay would be great!

Any tips for nomad'ing from Tanzania to South Africa?


in South Africa by @tylertringas 5yr 5 years ago  | 3 comments

Hi nomads! Iโ€™m headed to Tanzania in mid-July and working my way down to Cape Town over about 2.5 months. Itโ€™s my first time in the region. Any tips or warnings for typical nomad concerns in Tanzania, Zambia, Botswana, Mozambique and South Africa?

Iโ€™m anticipating worse than usual wifi speed but any tips on connectivity would be great.

What are the best sites or strategies for accommodation? I usually use Airbnb, hostelworld or booking.com and target guesthouses in the $50/night or cheaper range. Is that realistic?

Most importantly what should we do?! Iโ€™ve already research the obvious highlights: Kilimanjaro, Serengeti, Zanzibar, Victoria Falls, etc. Any off the beaten path things to do and/or good spots to post up for a few weeks and enjoy/work?

Thanks :smile:

Any other outdoor enthusiasts / adventurers like to meet up? (Central America & South Africa)


in South Africa by @jakegibson 6yr 6 years ago  | 0 comments

Till November I have a house in Costa Rica with extra beds. Learning to surf but interested doing some climbing, rafting, hiking.

After November mostly likely Cape Town South Africa for a few months, getting my pilots license but also interested in motorcycle tours, surfing, anything else outdoors.

After that will be looking for a sailing adventureโ€ฆ

I already watch meetup, but am always looking outdoor enthusiasts who are up for more than the casual hike. Anyone in those areas want to plan something? Or do you have a site besides meetup you use?

Anyone interested to do a Scotland/Cape Town flat swap in 2016?


in Cape Town , South Africa by @susangaigher 6yr 6 years ago  | 3 comments

Hi there! I have a one-bedroom flat in Cape Town, South Africa where I am based most of the time. I like to go on 2/3-month trips while working remotely, and am keen to go to Scotland (prefer Edinburgh) next.

I work for myself so am very flexible. If you are keen to swap flats, contact me! Cape Town is amazing, youโ€™ll have a ball. You can even have my friends for the duration of your stay :smile:

How is Cape Town for digital nomads?

 

in Cape Town , South Africa by @jammingsloth 6yr 6 years ago  | 32 comments

Has anyone spent time in Cape Town? Any recommendations on places to stay? Airbnb seems pretty sparse. Wifi also doesnโ€™t seem to be a strong suit - anyone have positive experiences?

Is it possible to be a digital nomad in Cape Verde?


in Cape Verde by @adrienbetweets 7yr 7 years ago  | 0 comments

I went to Cape Verde for a few weeks in January 2015.

Cape Verde is a pretty cool place to be, especially when itโ€™s very cold in Europe in the winter, see my relevant post on this on Whatโ€™s the best warm destinations in Europe in the winter?

However, the internet connection was not so good in most islands. I also tested a few wifi connections in different hotels & restaurants, & on different islands, but no luck, the connections were always pretty slow. Maybe I didnโ€™t try in the right places or the right telecom companies.

Apart from the internet connection, I noticed that the quality of the infrastructures is usually quite low. Does it disqualify Cape Verde as a destination for digital nomads? I donโ€™t know. I might simply too little knowledge about the country.

Any feedback is welcome. Thanks.
