I’ve been travelling for ~5 months in South America. When I left home my plan was to see every country (1 month per country) and then head to Europe.
I’ve since started contracting and the rapid travel pace is really draining me. I want to stay in one place for a while, meet more like minded people and surround myself with people also building awesome stuff.
South America doesn’t seem to have a very active nomad/tech community though. I’m also just not connecting with people the way I’m used to. It’s left me wondering if I’d be better off heading elsewhere right away. At the same time I feel stupid flying elsewhere when there’s still so much to see in South America. I also think a lot of other places I have in mind would raise my cost of living… so basically moving would burn my money faster.
So to turn that into a question:
How do you decide when to move?
What are the things you look at when you consider a new place?
Nomad List ranks places based on factors like Weather and Cost…but what about people?
What cities are good for meeting tech nomads?
What cities have great, fun, welcoming people that are easy to interact with?
Any factors to consider in cities that NomadsList overlooks?
Where should I go?
