Paris is having a bad outbreak of them - 1 year before they host the Olympics....
I once booked a 2 month airbnb and the bed was ROTTEN with it. I moved to the couch but same thing. I eventually changed to a hotel after 2 weeks, it was terrible.

Just once on a boat trip while backpacking in Vietnam. I must have stayed in hundreds of places at this point so either Iโ€™ve been very lucky or theyโ€™re not _that_ common.
davorb 2mo
Iโ€™m on the paid version. Itโ€™s super accurate imho.
dvpita 2mo
Yeah never had any issues
dvpita 2mo
Also now it can read websites so u can get updated data
Iโ€™m not sure where to ask this, however, hereโ€™s the scenario:

โ€ข Iโ€™m a European citizen (Germany) and will also have US citizenship soon, I have my own business (psychotherapy, blog writing, and marketing)
โ€ข Boyfriend is US citizen and either will have remote job or his own business
By the end of next year we want to go full-time nomad and start in Central America around Guatemala, Mexico, Belize, etc. โ€” however, then weโ€™d like to go to Europe. Now, Europe is a bit tough with the visa restrictions. I know countries like Spain and France allow this life-partner visa where he can get residence through me โ€” however, that means weโ€™re bound to that country for a year, correct?

So, hopping from county to country wouldnโ€™t work in that case, right? How have you guys been handling the visa stuff for Europe? Digital nomad visa would work but then again, weโ€™re bound to that country for 1+ year โ€” though weโ€™d love to hop around every 3-5 months.

Any advice?
dvpita 2mo
Why not go as a tourist everywhere?
We could but then we may get issues working remotely no? Plus weโ€™d have to go to a non-Schengen area after being in a Schengen area.. I wonder if that could give us issues?
dvpita 2mo
What issues?
Youโ€™re working for a foreign company , not getting paid to a local bank account.

Youโ€™re travelling through the country, what issues ?

Yes leave the Schengen area and go somewhere else, so many places in the world to explore
davorb 2mo
yes, if they ask you and you say youโ€™re working you might get into issues. technically this whole digital nomad thing isnโ€™t exactly legal everywhere.
dvpita 2mo
Just say ur travelling on vacation

I had an amazing experience with RY as a traveler on a 4-month program back in 2018, then had an ok experience as the program leader of a 12-month program from 2019-2020 (it's a tough job lol). All flights and travel from door to door is included outside of your first and last flight (aka joining and leaving the program). It has gotten more expensive but the biggest value IMO of RY are the city teamsโ€”they truly are incredible, supportive resources for you on the ground and help you make the most out of your time in the city. I have been curious to try out some of the other programs (HP, Wifi Tribe, etc.) so I can properly compare!
Hey guys! Looking for a good budget surf destination from Feb to April that are good to work from. Any recommendations? Iโ€™m from Cape Town so anywhere else ๐Ÿ˜„
Sri Lanka?

Famara, Lanzarote.
These are all amazing ideas!
Do you guys know a website where you can search for planes just by stating the destination? Not the departure?

Iโ€™m trying to flight to Honduras from Europe but I donโ€™t want to check every airports ๐Ÿ˜…
no, I would probably just use Google flights and start typing in airports that could work as the departure
borowis 2mo
google flights could support multiple airports to multiple airports search. it's pretty cool
borowis 2mo
you need to try with largest airports anyway, like from (Honduras Panama etc.) to (MUC, FRA, CDG, BCN) etc. Iterate with different combinations and you should see something ๐Ÿ™‚
I'm not sure how you use multiple departure airports, unless it's a BIG city with multiple airports, like New York, then it will search nearby airports
but not quite what carejeremy was asking, setting the destination and seeing airfare from multiple departing countries
phn 2mo
(not sure I would book over them but a way to find easiest flights
Yeah I would like to avoid to do that manually,| did the job! I was able to select Europe and see what I was looking for!
Saved my ass thank you so much! Ahah
borowis 2mo
Alas, Europe on the right doesn't work but as I said earlier you could put multiple airports both on the right and on the left
borowis 2mo
be careful with kiwi though. sometimes it suggests tickets from different airlines, so if some airline is delayed and you miss the connection you're on your own.

I've seen reviews before that kiwi offers virtually no support when things don't go as planned
borowis 2mo
Kiwi is good to explore things, although I personally prefer google flights and itamatrix

Pipa, Brazil.
Canarias, Spain.
gnuvpumq portugal is a bit cold around that time and Indonesia is rainy

Madeira is not cold and Indonesia even rainy is nice

wrt non-Schengen, Belgrade was always a nice option when 90 days was up, especially near Studentski Park. Been a few years, but the channel looks ok.

also use Revolut & CapitalOne 360 atm everywhere with good results. used to have n26 but they closed their US operation in '22. Probably the best case for bringing local currency is if you land in the middle of the night and Uber is banned and/or you need a sim card at the airport and your not sure your atm card works there.
Just used it to find the flight and booked it directly with Avianca ๐Ÿ˜„
Hi everyone! Do you have any budgeting tool suggestions to help with planning finances?
borowis 1mo
google spreadsheets? ๐Ÿ™‚
I already searched for a good one, but I could't find any ๐Ÿ˜• if you did, let me know! Please. Until there, I'm using google sheets as well
I use Google sheets ๐Ÿ˜‚
dvpita 1mo
Iโ€™ve tried a few and Google sheets wins every time.

For personal finances I use RocketMoney. I've also heard about YNAB. - RocketMoney is an app that sync with your bank accounts to keep track of your spending and make a basic budget for yourself. YNAB is 100% for budgeting purposes only with more advance features it promises to change your relation with money - pretentious slogan if you ask me...
dvpita 1mo
Tried ynab but couldnโ€™t connect my Revolut which is where all my money lives
ncyxcnpopn tell us more about Nomad Plan, Iโ€™d love to see a website or collateral

Wallet by Budget Bakers. So many integrations worldwide and they have a lifetime offer that is worth it.

If you are in the UK, Monzo is great but paying ยฃ5 a month for Monzo Plus also unlocks custom categories, auto Google Sheets import (and sync) as well as connected accounts for linking other bank accounts (In the app).

Monzo is also in the US (but it's very much a beta type/wip thing right now) but it has connected accounts and some nice features for managing your credit cards balances (via pots). The US side of it is free from what I remember

Disclaimer I work for Monzo
Would anyone be willing to share their google sheets budgeting template with me? Would be really helpful prayskin-tone-4
Looking for a 3rd party opinion. I see a cheap flight to athens, greece. I am thinking of spending the winter in the balkans, I am worried it would be too cold to go out and explore. Anyone visit the balkans in december?
borowis 25d
it's not too cold, around 10C or so, and much less crowded.
borowis 25d
depends on your "cold" definition
eh, it depends where on the balkans. it is not a small area ๐Ÿ˜„
you can have a deep frosty winter, or not ^^
was thinking 2 months a week in each country or so. Maybe thats too fast?
there are (depending on the definition) around 8 countries on the area which are called โ€œthe balkansโ€. you can yet alone spend 2 months easily in greece alone
dvpita 25d
too fast and too freezing.
snow everywhere
hyfzkpxw but still possible to go out and explore right?
i honestly think you guys should update your basic school geo knowledge. especially regarding the balkans are ^^

the balkan peninsula roughly starts//includes the mainland part of greece and goes up roughly until the balkan mountains in bulgarias north/east

<@U018BK0T7CY> down at penepoles (greece) part of balkan peninsula it would surprise me to find, what syhxnbif describes as โ€œsnow everywhereโ€. this will start further north.
yup, plan was fly into greece, then go north into the balkans, my main concern is being able to explore since it is winter time, would not want to be stuck indoors the whole time. I have gone to europe and iceland during winters and was fine, but as this is a new region for me, wanted to get other opinions before I decide. like if its worth going now, or just to wait for the spring
qzhdoiqssehwsi reminds me of this from slavoj zizek :joy:
(just the first 2min)
cbnwufigxmsfneqow i still dont understand the โ€œgo outโ€ part. do you freeze to death when touching some snow or as soon as temperature drops below a certain point?
if you worried about that, stay in greece because there will for sure be some snow north of montenegro.
itโ€™s late autumn, wintertime in europe damn it. temperatures drop of course in northern and eastern europe ๐Ÿ˜„
I will rephrase. Will the snow and ice result in tourist destinations being closed during the winter season, will I easily be able to explore the castles and other usual destinations, or will they be inaccessible or closed due to the weather.
ah, see. thats a totally other direction. and i at least dont know anything about that. also, iโ€™m pretty sure that also depends on each country ^^
if you are unsure, just wait until spring ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ
sakispal 23d
As someone who grew up in Greece I would avoid during the winter. Can be anywhere from 10C sunny to -5C snowing, it's a coin toss. Not much exploration to do during the winter, tourist destinations will probably be open but they will be depressingly empty. Canary islands and Madeira are the places in Europe to explore during the winter IMO
borowis 23d
> tourist destinations will probably be open but they will be depressingly empty
that's the biggest plus, no? ๐Ÿ˜†
i thought the same thing ๐Ÿ˜„
Decided to give it a try, worse case scenario, I enjoy some nice quiet cafes and work on my projects and really focus for a bit. Thanks for all the tips and comments
borowis 23d
Justin, let us know how it goes afterwards ๐Ÿ˜‰
Follow up question, I am trying to figure out an efficient plan, I like this one suggested by someone on reddit, but it does not include kosovo, which I want to visit. Does anyone have tips?
keep the current poltical situation in mind and ask yourself again if you want to visit kosovo at the moment
borowis 22d
Peaks of the Balkans trail for 15 days might be difficult because of snow and the weather, are you sure you want to do that in winter?
oh sorry, would be skipping that part
borowis 22d
๐Ÿ˜‚ I was worried for a second
borowis 22d
5 days in Sarajevo, 5 days in Zagreb and 5 days in Ljubljana and 5 days in Belgrade might be boring. idk if you're working most of the day that's fine. depends on what you plan to do in the city ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ if you're into museums and stuff like that
borowis 22d
if I were doing this thing I'd probably go to Split, visit Plitvice and maybe Zagreb for a day, visit Pula and maybe Hvar, idk. In Slovenia stay in Piran and visit the caves, maybe Ljubljana for a day and lake Bled. I don't know much about Serbia
borowis 22d
It's also weird itinerary skips bay of Kotor in Montenegro and Ohrid lake in Northern Macedonia
borowis 22d
Itinerary doesn't also take into account movement between Schengen and non-Schengen and wait times on the border
borowis 22d
I'd probably visit Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia and Kosovo first (non-Schengen) and then wait once to cross into Croatia and Slovenia and go to Romania and then Bulgaria and Greece
borowis 22d
12day Transylvanian train tour, what the hell is this ๐Ÿ˜ฎ never knew it existed
Ah, a traveling salesman
ruftkddpb didnt know either! mjryixcnwwglqa just wanting a change of scenary
dvpita 22d
don't skip Bansko in Bulgaria
dvpita 22d
so for me balkans are albania, georgia and bulgaria like countries, greece is def not considered balkans.
for me, freezing means 5C or less.
if u like skiing then you'll be fine in colder temps, Bansko is a very big nomad destination, amazing community.
georgia? wtf?
