Best tool to check different timezones?

 

by @marcusmeurer | 6yr  | 25 comments

Have to set up a skype call and always wonder which is the best tool to check the time difference?
I have been on a site where the interface was nicely designed on a world map. Anyone know which one that is?

I use World Clock โ€” https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/world-clock/id858446756?mt=12

I love this because if someone in PST says letโ€™s meet at 3:30PM PST I can go forward in time by swiping to see what time that will be for me.

Love it.

Actually, if you use Slack, you can see what time it is for a given person by clicking on their name / icon.
Obviously requires both parties being on Slack and is not so good for seeing whole teams at once, but a really nice little bit of inline information on people you talk to regularly.

I use a menubar app called The Clock. It has this brilliant โ€œmeeting schedulerโ€ feature that lets you use a range slider to quickly see time differences in the future or past to schedule meetings on the fly. One of those things that doesnโ€™t really make sense until you use it and then itโ€™s indispensable.

I just learned that you can have 2 time zones showing on a google calendar. Helps me enormously, especially when dealing with a lot of people who are in a different time zone from me, or when Iโ€™m about to switch time zones and am scheduling things a week or two out.

Two tools that I use all the time are google, where I search for โ€œtime in xโ€, where x is the name of the city or the abbreviation (such as AKST) and the clock app on the iphone, where you can have multiple clocks (and it says how many hours ahead or behind you are):

What's the best thing to do with your phone/ your phone number when travelling?


in Poland by @davda1546 | 9d 9 days ago | 6 comments

Hey, hope everyone is well!

We're leaving in a month to go travelling. Our first destination is still to be confirmed, but will likely be Poland or Slovakia. We will be moving around every month or two to different destinations.

The question we have is: what do people do with phones/ phone numbers when hopping from country to country? Ideally we'd just like one number for the whole trip (even better, the number we already have) wherever we go, rather than getting new SIMs with different numbers.

This is just so it's easier to keep in contact with family/ clients/ etc.

How do you plan your budget with different currencies?


by @leonagano | 11mo 10 months ago | 8 comments

Hey travellers, how are you doing?

Do you have problems to plan your trip choosing any currency they want? For example, Iโ€™m going to the UK but would like to plan my trip (How much will I spend in housing/food/having fun/attending attractions?) in US Dollar or Euro or any other money.
How do you guys do it easily?

How do you manage working in different time zones?


by @clusk | 2yr 1 year ago | 12 comments

For those constrained by their businessโ€™ time zone, how do you manage this?

My home office is in Los Angeles โ€“ though I could swing anything in Central/South America, Iโ€™m looking at going to Lisbon or Chiang Mai for a bit. Both of them are >=8hrs difference potentially wreaking havoc on the work + social life + sleep split. This is a common question for nomads but there doesnโ€™t seem to be a lot of posting on the site about it.

What do you guys think? Any Americans working in Asia or Europe that does it well? I could likely negotiate with my supervisor to work in Eastern standard if I was in Lisbon/Europe, which wouldnโ€™t be too much of a stretch. Noon 'til 8pm. A bit more manageable than Chiang Mai or Bali.

Best ways to get travel/nomad companions in different locations?

 

by @madelineb | 4yr 3 years ago | 24 comments

Hi,
Do nomads like to travel together? I mean, not in each otherโ€™s pockets, but look for accomodation together, meet with each other daily or regularly, help out in new cities, motivate/inspire each other in the business? :slight_smile: Iโ€™ve done nomad lifestyle in the past in 2009/2014 and this time I want to collaborate and support with other people, each on their own mission. I love this nomad endeavour but to be honest I admit it can be quite time-consuming and lonely. :wink:
*Message on NomadList locations?
*Message on Couchsurfing groups? (without sounding like Tinder!)
*Message on other??
Iโ€™m currently in Portugal and heading back to Estonia for January/February (Iโ€™m from Australia). Later in 2017 I am open to places, though Iโ€™m not keen on high pollution, high humidity, high cost cities.
Feedback, interest or ideas welcome!
Thanks, :sunny: Madeline

Living and working in two very different time zones


by @rwill007 | 4yr 4 years ago | 4 comments

If you are living and working out of Thailand (UTC+07:00) but work with people in the New York EST (UTC-05:00) Time Zone, how do you deal / handle the time difference and still be able to enjoy or make the most of the experience without turning into a tired night owl zombie?

Better yet, what do you find to be the benefits / drawbacks of having to work on such a schedule? (specially in Thailand)

Any advice from those who have done it for a long time? (2+ months)

Thanks,
Will

Do foreign contractors get treated any differently tax-wise?


by @lightmotif | 4yr 4 years ago | 5 comments

Iโ€™m an American who has been a sole proprietor (freelancer) for a long time. Iโ€™ve occasionally hired American subcontractors, who I send 1099s in January. What do I need to consider tax-wise or in any other way financially if I want to hire a subcontractor from abroad?

Iโ€™m also interested in knowing more about any roadblocks potential clients from other countries would have in contracting to me. I havenโ€™t done business across borders yet. Thanks.

Do you think there are different "tiers" of nomads? What kind of nomad are you?

 

by @marcob | 5yr 4 years ago | 26 comments

I feel I have come across different types or tiers of nomads, eg: you have your backpacker nomad and then maybe a more successful nomad that is travelling without worrying so much about budget, the two seem to resonate more within their own groups. What different tiers do you think exist, if any? How do you differentiate the different groups, and do they play well together?

Iโ€™m curious to hear your opinions, and please describe what kind of โ€œnomadโ€ you are when responding. Thanks.
