I have been following the news from afar, but what is the overall safety feeling around Europe regarding the situation in Ukraine/Russia?
Iโ€™ve heard from friends staying in Poland and the Baltic countries that people are not feeling safe there at all but I donโ€™t think thatโ€™s a reflection of reality, more so an emotional reaction to what happened to them in the past. So unless you are planning to go visit Ukraine or Moldavia (not recommended) I donโ€™t think you need to worry about physical safety due to the conflict. However keep in mind that with all the displacement (millions of refugees) finding accommodations is going to be harder than usual throughout Europe, especially so in countries that border Ukraine.
I've been in Vilnius for a couple of months, if one didn't read the news one would not notice anything about the war, besides all the Ukrainian flags and support messages, Lithuania is very vocal. Also haven't had issues so far finding AirBnBs.

Hi everyone. Was hoping to get recommendations for beginning of June / end of July. Priories are:

โ€ข Decent coworking space
โ€ข Good scene where you can meet other nomads
โ€ข Not a big city like London, Bangkok, NYC.
Iโ€™ve enjoyed Lisbon in the past but would like to try somewhere new.

Iโ€™ve read good things about the Canary Islands and Las Palmas seems to be most popular spot, but I donโ€™t know anyone personally whoโ€™s been there. Would you recommend it / anywhere else I should consider? Thanks
Heading there on Friday, will let you know :)
lane1mo
What are your views on cost?
uhabuo I can be flexible. I'm coming from London so doubt I'll be spending more than I currently do.

Hey folks. How easy would it be to book Airbnb (entire places ideally) or hotel rooms for 1-week stays (Sunday to Saturday) in the French/Italian Alps, with around 1 week's notice, throughout August and September? I'm sure the best places will be taken, but would it be reasonable to find a 'decent' place with WiFi for less than โ‚ฌ350/week?

I'm considering doing a motorcycle tour around the Alps and I don't want to book anything too far in advance. Also, since I'll still be working from Monday morning to Friday afternoon, I'd like to stay at a single place throughout the week -- leaving the riding for the weekends and some weekday evenings.
I'm open to spending some weeks in or near big cities (like Milan) if that gives me more options, but I'm equally happy to stay in the countryside as long as I can get a decent connection to the Internet.
Oh and I'm planning to camp on Fridays and Saturdays, but I'm not too worried about finding campsites.
gran canaria has everything you listed that youโ€™re looking for
wrvlkppa where you recommend in gran canaria? Las palmas?
las palmas is the place to be unless you just want to chill at the pool at an all inclusive in the south. most of the nomads are in LP.
I don't think you'll find something in Italy for that budget, personally. Especially not in August/Sep. If it's late Sep/early Oct you might but there will be snow by then.
Hey all. What's the best SIM / phone service provider for all /most of Europe travels? Is it better to get a local sim everywhere or go with a provider with roaming
If you are visiting EU countries and have a SIM card from EU country, there is no roaming. So you can buy SIM card in your first EU country and use it in others too.
Google EU roaming for more info.

If you use e-sim enabled device you can use Airalo app and purchase eSIM right from your phone.
jani1mo
But it's data only
Thank you! I'll keep it in mind
Well, yes and no. First of all, most prepaid SIMs have much stricter "fair policy" use rules than contracts (e.g. my Polish SIM with 15GB prepaid data only allowed me 500MB outside of Poland). On the other hand, Spanish SIMs I bought recently had much higher limits (7GB in roaming on a 35GB data package IIRC).
Second, depending on operator, they can start charging you if you're out of "home" country of the SIM more than you're in (as my Polish SIM does - they send me text messages to say "you've been out for X days out of last Y days and from now on you'll be charged for roaming at following rates...").
It's really worth reading on the small print for roaming. For most people, it doesn't matter because they only travel for a bit. If you want a card that will work everywhere for extended period of time, especially prepaid, then some networks and tariffs will be better than others.
Thanks all, appreciate this!
Airalo has a Europe regional eSIM which has been working well for me, it also has coverage in non-EU European countries and is not that much more expensive than the country-specific SIMs

Any car rental recommendations so I can drive from Paris to Amsterdam?
Ok so I'm finally doing something about the fact that I rely entirely on Wise for my banking while abroad and will open 2-3 bank accounts in europe (tried in colombia but they required a lot of paperwork).

Any bank recommendations that have decent online banking in europe and would allow me to open a bank account as a tourist?

would love to use revolut but they don't offer service for tax residents in my country (Honduras)

Looking at options in western europe (Spain, portugal, france, etc)
In Portugal you might wanna try www.moey.pt/ but Iโ€™m not sure about the requirements for opening accounts.
Thereโ€™s other fintechs you might wanna look into like N26, Monzo, Bunq, Monese, Starling, Wirex, etc
in 2020 I opened a N26 account and still have it. iโ€™m not a EU resident, just needed an EU address to receive the card
not the best bank, but definitely not the worst
currently I use both N26 and Wise while abroad
Yeah I can't use N26 either, they have a requirement that you need to be a resident in any of their supported countries.
You can open non-resident accounts in Portugal and Spain at least. I think pretty much any bank. However, I am yet to come across any Spanish/Portuguese bank with 'decent' online banking.
since 2019 or so nearly no bank in eu will offer non resident bank accounts
I know people get around it by using friends addresses etc but it seems risky to me
Sorry but that's not true. At least in Portugal and Spain, non-resident accounts have been available for a while, and still are:

โ€ข Spain www.bancosantander.es/faqs/particulares/cuentas/puede-extranjero-no-residente-abrir-cuentabr />โ€ข Spain www.caixabank.es/particular/cuentas-bancarias.html ("Las personas no residentes en Espaรฑa pueden realizar alta online en CaixaBank con la cuenta Holabank" -> "Non-residents can sign up online with CaixaBank via Holabank")
โ€ข Portugal www.bancobest.pt/enu/best_contas ("Non-residents")
โ€ข Portugal www.activobank.pt/simple-accountbr />โ€ข ... The list goes on.
Portugal and Spain are the countries I know best, but I wouldn't be surprised if other EU countries offered them as well. I have close friends and relatives who have opened such accounts with their own addresses outside the EU.
Yup, Iโ€™m not EU or Portugal resident and I have an active N26 account opened with a Lisbon address
That's a different thing if I'm not mistaken N26 does require residency. If you used someone else's address, that's a different matter. But the banks I mentioned above do not require a local address... Because they're explicitly targetting non-residents.
Anyone have experience/recommendations for short-term lets in Europe? Looking for a 2 bed house near a major train route for most of Jun-Aug 2023. Havenโ€™t settled on a country yet, but considering Bodensee area of #germany
I have an extra week before I go to Amsterdam, any suggestions that are between Rome (currently at) and Amsterdam that are nice for a week or so? (preferably cheap to get to/stay and then cheap to get to ams)
berlin is a bit of a detour but itโ€™s nice there and not too expensive
or anywhere around Kรถln - you can get the ICE from there to Ams
and avoid Schiphol which I hear is a mess still ๐Ÿคท
Would you recommend a flight or a train/bus there?
From Cologne, definitely a train. From Berlin, both train and flights are similar in time commitment
flights are sometimes cheaper, but trains are much nicer
I've been reading some horror stories about delayed flights to Europe. Can anybody share their experience/ perspective from "on the ground" over there? Is it really that bad?
Anecdotally, I had 3 flights in the last 3 weeks and they were all fine.. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ
Went from Lisbon to Berlin last week with no problem, but a friend went from London to New York and had its flight delayed
I have witnessed horror stories for flights _departing_ from Berlin, but incoming flights were fine
Ok, sounds like i could get lucky! :)
had flights delayed in amsterdam
several times
anyone with good recommendations for first time travellers to europe for a 3week-ish stay?
my first destination is paris, and after about 4 days there i'm quite open to move around
How I would approach it personally:
โ€ข Choose one country that Iโ€™ve always been fascinated or curious about.
โ€ข Go through that countryโ€™s cities on nomadlist.com|nomadlist.com and read the pros/cons, weather, reviews, etc. and then Iโ€™ll pick the best one or two cities.
โ€ข Look for the best (highest rated) accommodation deal I can find in my preferred locations.
Given the disruption that moving around has on work Iโ€™d only spend it in one place unless I didnโ€™t have a lot going on or was on PTO.
that's a nice advice, thanks! ๐Ÿ’š
