Madeira (more rocks than beaches)/Gran Canaria (long sand beaches) - definitely swimmable
Las Palmas is pretty awesome - not a small town, lots of nomads, def beach culture
OK, now understood. I think Bari in Italy. I did some remote work last year there and it was great for swimming, chilling on the beach and of course working.
Anywhere in Greece, Crete is amazing
Definitely Costa da Caparica, Itโ€™s like Venice beach 10 years ago, beach vibes, people surfing and longboarding, cafรฉ cowork at the beach and a growing community. I was there for 1 month and loved it.
Hi,
What does the cost of living for a nomad include for Europe?
Thank You
rdodawofxjsfa traveling to Cascais next week for a month of surfing. Iโ€™ve been hearing a lot of good stuff about Costa da Caparica so Iโ€™ll be sure to check it out as well. What do you think about Cascais?
Surf isnโ€™t the same. I grew up near Cascais in Oeiras. Love Carcavelos and Sรฃo Pedro do Estoril region and the quality of life is incredible. My guess is that there will be very few waves during summer there unless some good storms come in.
You also have Guincho and Praia Grande near, if you have a car, and much better waves ๐Ÿ™‚
depends where in europe! its a big place
My bad...I meant to ask what expenses are included in the "cost of living for nomad" published on the site for each city?
oh ha ha. i dont know!
ahhh good to know, thank you!

After two weeks in Spain, no alcohol for me neither for the next week ๐Ÿ˜‚ Ok for a coffee some days in the afternoon ?

csyrsztgorrnxsvuo โ˜๏ธ
sskgb sure man, I'd like that. where in the city are you?
nik2mo
I'm in the south country, near Muret. But always a pleasure to go to the city for any reason.
Hey everyone, I'm planning a trip and the best flight I found has 1 layover in Vienna and another in Munich, the first one is just 35 minutes and the one in Munich is 45 minutes.

Do you think that's enough? I'm not sure I could make it specially if I have to do customs in Vienna as non-eu.
45 minutes is pushing it! Iโ€™โ€™d give yourself an hour ideally.
Hey all, anyone in Montenegro at the moment? The channel looks a bit dead so trying here also
flying from poland to usa, transiting through frankfurt with an hour and half time. anyone have this experience recently and can tell me if i will have time for the transit and any tips to make the transit easier and quicker so we dont miss our flight since we will have to go through passport control and security again?
Are both flights on the same ticket (I assume Lufthansa)? If so, you should be fine. I have transited through Frankfurt with short connections numerous times, including during COVID and never had any issues making the flight. And if your first flight is delayed but you still have a chance to make the connection, they will usually let you deboard first, hold the onward flight for you etc.

In terms of flying to the US, I just went through that process now (different European airport). Boarding is slow bc they check everyone's covid test but that shouldn't matter for you (if anything it might help you if the onward flight gets delayed bc of that). Other than that + passport control line being really short, not much different from pre-covid.
thank you for the information! both flights are on the same ticket reservation, but different airline (first is Lufthansa and second one is United). i usually give myself at least 2 hours for layovers but they changed my flight so i was stuck with this. we also have just carry on bags too, not that it matters. thanks again for the info!
This was back in Marchโ€ฆI transited through Frankfurt going from Cancun>Sofia with a 1h30m window. I failed.
The plane was 20 mins late landing. They had 2(!) police checking everyones test at the airplane on de-boarding and it was slowโ€ฆ.
Be very sure of where you need to go for your next flight. Transit through Frankfurt can be long, its a big airport and you can have a 30-45 min walk, and _another_ security check.
Be prepared to run...
Good luck ๐Ÿคž
Morning all!
So...bit of an issueย :slightly_smiling_face:ย I'm from the UK, fully vaccinated (AZ) and have my little NHS pass/QR code showing both shots. However, I'm finding a lot of places here in Latvia aren't accepting my covid pass as the UK system isn't linked up to the EU.
Is there a quick way of getting an EU Covid pass...somehow converting my British one? Are other people having the same issues?
In Germany I downloaded the "Luca" app which is what they use in Berlin, scanned my NHS covid qr code and it recognised it, but with the added benefit of converting it into the EU passport format. It worked everywhere in Berlin and then when I went to Czech Republic, the few times anyone checked for vaccination it worked there too. So you could try that
๐Ÿ›ฌ chrklvru just arrived in ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ฒ Yerevan,Armenia, #europe
Hey, there ๐Ÿ™‚ How are you liking Yerevan?
Considering heading there myself in a couple of weeks, so very curious about your experience so far oanzrwdh ๐Ÿ™‚
Trying to make easier my trip. I was vaccinated in Colombia, but want to get the eu digital one, is there a way for doing that? thanks
Ohh damn it, I'm not ๐Ÿ˜•
I just got a shot of J&J in Zagreb and will have my certificate in a week. You could try getting it here but not sure it applies for vaccines applied outside the EU. It probably should. Try calling here:

HZJZ

Nice place if youโ€™ll be exploring outside of the city and going to different places. Other than that thereโ€™s not much to do in the city itself.
certificates are definitely not only for eu citizens ()
not sure if making another shot is a terrible idea, but can be done in croatia / czech republic
Hello!
Looking for a nice deationstion in Europe for 3 months, starting mid October. Reqs little or no rain, 13 to 25 degrees, cool places to meet new people and Culinary is a (big) plus.
Thanks!
Guess there is no 25 degrees places in Europe in December. Closest to your reqs might be Canary Islands
ufytkflcugoo Portugal fits, also Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain, Greece, Croatia
Another day, another useful nomad list feature I didnโ€™t know existed ๐Ÿ˜„
I have a question that I hope doesnโ€™t come up the wrong way.

Is an European passport really worth it to have?

My current situation is that Iโ€™m a Honduran citizen which regardless of all the issues the country has the passport is actually pretty good. Iโ€™m also eligible to get a Spanish passport if I either get married after one year or if I just live there legally for 2 years.

When I compare them both, Spain does have more countries I could visit visa free but maybe just 4-5 that I would actually like to visit and for which I could just get a tourist visa if I decide to go.

I love Spain and I think is a great country but it does have many issues as well and the tax burden is really high.

What advantages am I missing if I get a Spanish passport as a second passport? Do you think it would be worth it?
You can enter 134 countries with a Honduran passport, you can enter 188 with a Spanish passport so I think it's better
My NL passport is same, can almost go anywhere. It's very easy to travel with
Notably no visa waiver for you to MX, US, CA, AU, NZ, TH, VN
Also higher odds of future instability for Honduras than Spain/Europe, which might change how many places you go and you and your future kids safety
I think the main benefits are longer-term, if you plan to stay in EU. You have freedom of movement in EU and could go and live/work in other EU countries that have lower tax burdens.
The instability part is definitely something I had not considered before. I guess Iโ€™m too used to it but it does seems a big one.

Turkey doesn't have a channel here or am I blind? Was wondering if any nomads are in Istanbul.
there is a channel
OK, then it's me woman_with_probing_cane
Does anyone know how to get an EU Digital Covid Certificate for someone who was fully vaccinated outside of the EU? A Canadian friend is trying to sort that out
I was able to do it at a pharmacy in Berlin but I had to go to a few of them before I found one that wanted to do it.
Just brought them my American card and they printed me an EU QR code
Madeira or the Canary islands.
๐Ÿ›ฌ idhvmrhboqqlui just arrived in Pejรซ,Kosovo, #europe
Why no channel for #albania?
grum1mo
Just checking the logs and it seems barely anyone travels to Albania. To avoid chat being spread thin, low use channels are archived, or in this case, not created.
Itโ€™s definitely something quite new and very niche, but definitely growing slowly.

after poking around on nomadlist trips, it looks like it may be a location of note. Iโ€™ll add the channel now :)
Had anyone spend time in Belgrade and Tbilisi? Wondering which is the better choice to work from for a month
Iโ€™ve successfully worked from both. Although, theyโ€™re quite different places. Is there specifically something youโ€™re looking for? Both have ample WiFi, decent airbnbโ€™s and plenty of cafes to work from
Haven't been to Belgrade yet, but Tbilisi is an awesome place to work from. Great food, vgreat prices, weekend hiking and a decent expat community if any language barriers.
I suppose all the classic things really. Good bar and restaurant scene, good nightlife, friendly locals, decent coworking space, fun activities to do on weekends etc :)
Thanks hzbymuu
plfdzbktea Both have those things, but I would say Tbilisi thereโ€™s a lot more stuff to do and the locals are very hospitable and a wide range of diversity compared to Belgrade. Serbs are awesome when you get to know them properly, but It can take a little longer Iโ€™d say ๐Ÿ™‚ Hopefully that helps!
It does! Thanks man
Hey how can US vaccinated travelers get an EU vaccine certificate?
I got mine by taking my vax card to a pharmacy in Germany
you can also get one from France via email if you have a ticket there
So guys,
with which coat you are hanging in europe when it's 0 degrees outside or rainy?
What are your layers?
Either a wool coat (more fancy) or a puffy down coat (more casual).
itโ€™s 0 degrees somewhere already? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ or is this planning for the future
For the future
big hat for the rain (because I hate umbrellas) and wool coat for warmth. If you switch between inside and outside a lot having too many layers is annoying as you spend half your day dressing and undressing
Thatโ€™s usually the sign I take to move south haha
haha yeah the heaters in our building came on yesterday and I opened up Google Flights ๐Ÿ˜†
Can recommend Arcteryx for this purpose, they have all kinds of different layer densities. I picked up an Atom LT and combine that with a jumper whenever I have to spend time in the cold. But it also works as a jacket in middling temperatures, chilly/windy evenings say. It folds into its sleeve when not in use (ie most of the time)
zmpotphes it's fine for degrees of 5 celsius down?
I combined it with a jumper. But I definitely have higher cold tolerance than the average - Scottish genes
I'm currently in germany and I wanna head somewhere to south europe (Non-Island!) where it's warm. Any recommendations? I'm completely free within the next 2 months
I spent a november in Catania, Sicily last year that was quite nice. If Sicily is still regarded as island Iโ€™d just look to southern Spain, not many other options.
What about Greece or Albania?
Albania is afaik not included into Schengen. Greece is one of the most likely places npoavfhiyrrcpx
yeah you said Europe, not EUโ€ฆ
Brussels doesnโ€™t decide what is and isnโ€™t Europe
But the Schengenvisa of my GF sadly does
If itโ€™s about a schengen visa, itโ€™s better to ask for recommendations within schengen rather than recommendations within Europe
falsely equating the EU / Schengen zone with Europe is denigrating to Europeans who are from outside the zone and they have enough problems with prejudice as it is
also, not all EU countries are within Schengen anyway
I dunno any place in Europe that is considered warm during winter, I was in Athens last winter and it was snowing ๐Ÿ˜…
Are there any books or guides for this kind of trip? I guess I am not the first person who tries to flee from the cold Schengen countries into the warmer ones. Any hints?
oh, the actual right answer here is the Canary Islands, schengen visa will get you in and it's proper warm there in the winter because it's geographically north africa even though it's legally part of Spain
also madeira, similar deal but part of portugal
obpcdxvvepxvuv you missed the part in which I literally said (Non-Island!)
Oh right, missed that
Why non island?
