Hi, I surf regularly and Oahu has great horseback riding, time zone might be an issue, but I have 3 bedroom house where we will be on mainland nov 21 2020- Jan1 2021, hit me up if you would like to stay, I can link you to my air bnb
We choose the destinations … worldschoolers since 2012… 4 kids … slow travelling min 3 months but have spent 10 months eg Gran Canaria …
Currently in Taiwan and using it as an Asian base (have some contract work hence why Taiwan).
There are a ton of nomad families on Facebook groups - location independent families, digital nomad families, worldschoolers are the big ones. We’ve been traveling with our kids since 2013, kids born in Luxembourg, Mexico and the US. My wife and I choose the destinations as our oldest is only 6yrs, so the factors are currently timezone vs company’s, climate, cost of living, journey time back to family, schooling options, visa duration, and access to other nomad families. We’re heading to Mazatlán next week and plan to make it a homebase, traveling out a couple of times a year. Our son’s favorite was Budapest, which we’ll probably get back to when he’s older. Our favorite will always be Cape Town, but the timezone would be too disruptive atm.
Thanks a lot for your answer.
My current factors are
So we ended up in mauritius
We plan to homebase in france again in 2 years or so and do almost the same as you: traveling 6/8 weeks per year during summer holidays.
This way, we can keep a steady environment for our kids all year long while still discovering a country during almost 2 months.
In order to find our next spot, we use nomadlist of course but also remote-family.
Thanks for your infos
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:
- 🛂 Rebase: visa, residency and immigration services for remote workers
- 🎓Courses: learn the steps how to go remote and travel/relocate
- 🏛 Gov liaison: diplomacy services to the governments to help us lobby for nomads and for them to attract remote workers
Thanks a lot!
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 :)
Does anyone ever travel to any Islands like Bermuda, Barbados, Barbuda and St. Kitts & Nevis?
Hi there, title says it all. Canadian nomad hoping to find the city/town in Portugal with great, consistent surfing, a solid coworking spot, and a fun group of young nomads. Please recommend!
I'm in need of a tax advisor who understands "our" typical situation. I'm all good on being legal on taxes at this point, but as I'm doing more investing and there's more compliance and KYC and such, it's getting more complicated to deal with this topic. Not living in my country of citizenship, company in another country, resident in yet another country, banking in a different country ... you know how it is, a pile of red flags.
Would be great to find a good tax advisor to sort things in a way that makes my situation as "explainable" and easily dealt with as possible. Any leads?
Hi, I've got a question to anyone who had experience with the digital nomad lifestyle. I'm 24, I'm in my last year of university doing computer science, got 3 years of experience mostly doing web development.
I never liked the idea of staying in one place, getting a job and growing roots - hence the will to take the opportunity and travel the world. My main question is – how do I go about it? Are there any useful resources I could look into?
How do I go about insurance and such once I decide to move. I currently live in Switzerland and do freelance work for one company. It's not a lot, since my studies don't allow me to pick up a full time job, but it allows me to cover simple expenses.
I'd be happy to get some insight into how things work and also happy to network with anyone interested.
Hi guys ! hope you are doing well.
I would love to get your feedback regarding the best insurance for digital nomads. i'm traveling around Asia since 1 year and for next 4 or 5 years. Would love to buy an insurance to cover especially :
- laptop, phone ...
Anyone know of any groups or resources for Ph.D. students working on dissertation while living as a digital nomad? I know there are several virtual writing groups around, but wondered if there were any specifically for digital nomads, particularly those who are dissertating.
I’m looking for an international health insurance (no travel insurance) for my nomadic life. It should cover the basic services and at least be accepted in the EU (it’s ok if it’s not accepted in the US as I’m aware they rarely are). Nice to have: enter into a contract online. Anyone got a good experience or a recommendation?
Thanks in advance!
I have finally saved enough money to start investing. What company gives good, diversified access to stock, ETFs and mutual funds? Does it make sense to use company like Vanguard or Fidelity for that? I’m a EU/Poland citizen, how would I transfer my money back and forth without incurring significant fees?
Hello digital nomad!
I dream of being an independent digital nomad. But it feels very elusive & unattainable with my success rate. In full disclosure, whilst I have dreamed about making money online since high school; I have not earned a single cent making money online. $0, nada, zilch!! On the contrary, I have spent a lot of time & money on books, podcasts. Even though I have spent a lot of time reading/listening to others, I do not have anything to show for it!
I have made attempts in the past to start an online business, but these fizzle out quite quickly when I do not see traction especially when the goal I have set myself is too high.
Instead of reaching for the ultimate nomadic lifestyle goal, I want to start much smaller. Really small! I am simply looking to make $50 profit per month from a new online business. That’s it.
I need some advice from you please!
Is $50 profit too low? How long did it take you to earn $50 profit per month?
What is a good way of achieving this goal?

Hello everyone! I’m new here and probably this is a very newbie question, but it doesn’t leave my head.
How do you, nomads, pay your taxes? I mean, if you’re constantly traveling, how are you going to pay taxes for a certain country if you are going to stay there a short period of time?
Or do you return to your “original country” and then pay them?
By the way, this forum has very nice cool formatting features!
I’m a freelance + nomad newbie, off for my 1st proper trip in May. I’m wanting to spend a month somewhere and go from there.
I just came back from Slovenia/Ljubljana and loved it there (just a week). I don’t mind “sleepier” places par-say, as long as they’re close to a beach or nature of some kind. In fact, I kinda like places less-busy and a bit smaller/cosier.
I’m been swaying towards Porto, but have been impressed by the rave reviews I’ve seen for Valencia.
-> Have you every nomad-ed in a Spanish/Portuguese city? I’d love to know where and what you liked/disliked
Hey guys, this was my first year as a Canadian nomad.
As far as I know of, Canadians don’t pay taxes if they do not live in the country for 6 months.
But I’d like to talk to an accountant or someone who does Canadian taxes specifically for expats and nomads to get clear on the rules and for help on my return coming up.
Does anyone know someone who specializes in Canada who can help? I’ve seen plenty of US recommendations but none for us canucks.
I am planning to move to Latin America for 3-4 months (Oct-January). I’ve narrowed down 6 different places that I want to visit before committing to settling down, but I’d love to get some community input.
Here are the cities I’m considering:
The most important things I’m looking for:
Anyone have any experience with these places and can give some insight? I’m also completely open to other recommendations.
I just landed as a n00b digital nomad in Mexico City, and I am wondering… Where are all the international digital nomads hiding around here? I have been to several coworking spaces (Selina etc.) only to find A LOT of local Mexican workers and businesses. Don’t get me wrong, that is all fine, but I was hoping to meet some international nomads! Any advice?
