Do you read paper magazines while you're travelling?


by @gaelm | 5yr  | 6 comments

Iโ€™ve always thought that is important to balance a very digital lifestyle with some analogic source of informations, like magazines, books, newspapers, but in a nomadic lifestyle it could be difficult to find same media in every country. How do you feel about that? Do you read something specific and cross-crountry?

An ePaper Kindle generally works quite as a โ€˜non-screenโ€™ and you can subscribe to newspapers/magazines etc via the platform.

Popular magazines like Wired, GQ tend to be imported a lot of countries (usually at a cost though).

You can find the main magazines in English (Newsweek, Times, The Guardian, etc) in most big cities. In some places, like Latin America, youโ€™ll probably find them in larger bookstores (specially inside shopping malls), and not at the newsstand. Iโ€™m guessing newspapers are more difficult to find unless in bigger cities, but again, look for bookstores and libraries as well.
Books in English are super easy to find anywhere. Just grab a couple at the airport when you arrive :smile:
Some cities may have a specific bookstore for books in English. Finding them may be part of the fun of exploring and discovering the city.

I donโ€™t do paper at all but I see your point.

It can be interesting to pick up local magazines for a read (I usually do it at cafes etc where they are free). Even if you canโ€™t read them, if they are on an interesting topic like fashion, architecture or whatever you are into, they can still be a source of inspiration.

I donโ€™t read paper anything while Iโ€™m traveling unless I happen to be in a hostel with books. Itโ€™s not just about finding the same media, itโ€™s about finding it in a language you can read.

you can find local versions of international magazines, but youโ€™ll probably have language issues. perhaps at some of the high end hotels in major cities you can get some big city news papers in english like the NYT. but in general, i think youโ€™ll have a real problem finding the same magazine each month in a language you can read if youโ€™re moving from country to country. book exchanges at hostels might be an option but theyโ€™re books, not mags. there might be, in the big cities, a shop that will sell international language mags, but youโ€™d have to discover that from city to city and no guarantee that theyโ€™d have what you wanted. i read more than anyone Iโ€™ve ever met so I get it. but I gave up on paper reading long ago. itโ€™s just not viable for long-term travel - at least not for me.

Which EU country doesn't charge social security for freelancers

 

in Luxembourg by @colin_o_keeffe | 7d 6 days ago | 0 comments

As far as I'm aware Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium charge both sides (employee and employer) of the statutory social security pension if you are a freelancer. Are there countries that don't make this a requirement? It is crippling having to pay out upwards of 19% of your income into a state pension.

How to find accomodation in Las Palmas, Canary Islands

Where do I get good legal advice/support to have a long-term stay in Portugal?


in Lisbon, Portugal by @mzorrilla | 20d 20 days ago | 4 comments

Hello, everyone!

My idea is to stay as low as 6 months and as long as a year (maybe, who knows) over Lisbon after doing some analysis from many cities in Europe.

I'm an Argentinian and Chilean (both nationalities) so... no Euro-pass for me (getting my Italian nationality could take 2 years easily). I'm also a remote worker and I have a really good income (I work for a Silicon Valley company) so I can show more than enough resources to stay in the country.

Everything I see online doesn't inspire me much confidence (most sites looks a bit scammy) and this is not a "vacation stay"... I want to be clear my head far away from Argentina right now. If someone has a good website, recommendations, etc I will super appreciate.

Thanks in advance!

How do I get Travel/Medical Insurance for Portugal for visa application from Australia?


in Portugal by @jonathanpoh | 1mo 1 month ago | 5 comments

I'm preparing my Portuguese D7 long-term visa application and one of the required documents is proof of travel insurance with medical coverage. However, as an Australian citizen, if put that as my country of residence in many travel insurance companies' quick quote forms, I'm unable to get ANY insurance coverage at all because of the current travel ban out of Australia, and the Australian govt's 'Do Not Travel' advice to ALL countries. I know that Aussies are applying for, and successfully getting visas from the Portuguese Consulate here, so where and how are they fulfilling this insurance requirement if insurers aren't selling any coverage? Does anybody know or have any ideas?

Video chat coworking solutions?


in Brazil by @essentiallyint | 1mo 1 month ago | 2 comments

I am new to working out of coworking spaces. My business entails a lot of video conferences. I haven't chosen a specific coworking space yet but generally, what are the potential solutions for this? I have a microphone and headphones but still fell like it may be inconsiderate to take the calls anywhere in the coworking space. For a solo person, what are some general solutions? Are there usually options to rent a private room by the hour with just enough room to set up my microphone and laptop? Sidenote: any coworking space recommendations in Florianapolis, Brazil would also be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Is there a map of countries open for travel now?


in Russia by @vernon99 | 1mo 1 month ago | 7 comments

I have two passports from different countries and am trying to understand where can I travel now. Is there a publicly available map of countries open for visitors by passport country that I can use to see what are my options? I was pretty sure such a thing should exist, but cannot easily find any.

Maybe at least there're maps for specific passports? Mine are Russian and American.

If there's no such thing, I'd be down to build one, let me know if interested to collaborate :)

Any nomads in Arizona, US?


in Netherlands by @info132 | 1mo 1 month ago | 0 comments

Hi guys,

After the Netherlands, the Bay Area, Colorado and being on the van life for 8 months, I am now in Sedona, AZ with a few other digital nomads. We are sharing a home here and are wondering if there are more like minded people in the area.

We do a bunch of hikes and campouts in the northern of Arizona. If you would like to connect with us, please do so :)

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


in Poland by @davda1546 | 2mo 2 months 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.

Recommendations for a portable speaker system suitable for a DJ monitor while travelling? Preferring size over loudness


by @jack700 | 2yr 1 year ago | 0 comments

Iโ€™ve got myself a DDJ 400 DJ controller, and the compact size makes it ideal to throw into my suitcase while I go travelling next year.

It made me wonder if there was a decent portable speaker system thatโ€™s loud (and clear) enough for light bedroom DJing I could pack alongside the 400 to practice new tracks and record mixes.

I currently have a Bose Soundlink Mini II which was surprisingly good for the job. Although I feel itโ€™ll probably damage if I keep pumping at full pelt, and itโ€™s not quite loud enough for what I wanted but not far off at all.

I ordered a pair of iLoud Micro Monitors, and although seriously impressed with the sound quality, I ended up returning them for KRK Rokit 5 G3โ€™s as they were too heavy for permanent (Digital Nomad) travelling so thought Iโ€™d get some solid DJ speakers in the meantime.

Anybody with a software consultancy having issues finding clients while travelling?


by @raz | 3yr 2 years ago | 4 comments

I recently started running a software consultancy in the UK that specialises in MVP development and onboarding/marketing strategies. I found it relatively easy to get leads by attending networking events (quite a lot here in Edinburgh).

I plan to start travelling soon, though. Has anybody tried to travel while running a software consultancy? Iโ€™m really curious to find out how you handled finding new clients while doing that. Letโ€™s say that if I go networking somewhere in Asia I wonโ€™t find clients willing to spend much on a project (and canโ€™t just pay my employees less because I canโ€™t find good paying projects).

How do you deal with getting data on your mobile while travelling?


by @nomads_and_drifters | 4yr 3 years ago | 15 comments

Hi,
I wondered how everybody deals with getting data on their phone in each country they travel. Is there a way around it? It is always such a pain having to buy and activate sim cards everywhere. I have tried the company โ€œworldsimโ€ and had an international sim for a while, but they where terrible and ended up to be super expensive.

Costa Rica or other suggestions in SA for a single woman travelling?


in Costa Rica by @ruthk | 5yr 4 years ago | 14 comments

Hi guys,
Iโ€™ve decided I want to take a break from my way of living and go nomad for a few months (at least). I do music so WiFi is not my main concern, all I need is good inspiration and nice people around me.

I am looking for a mid-cheap / safe place, preferably having a nice beach around. Iโ€™d also like to socialize with people from different cultures. Meet and make new friends.
I got sick from living in Europe/US, so Iโ€™d rather be far away from these continents.

My choices have come down do Costa Rica, but Iโ€™m reading some good stuff about Medellin, Mexico, Panama. Iโ€™ve spend quite some time in Asia traveling as well (I love Bali and Koh Lanta), but Iโ€™ve never been to South America, so Iโ€™d rather go in that direction.

What would you suggest?

How to organize a nomad meetup in the city you're in


by @nomadforum | 5yr 5 years ago | 0 comments

Weโ€™ve organized almost 50 meetups of digital nomads now from San Francisco to Berlin to Chiang Mai to Sao Paulo in the last year.

Theyโ€™re very informal get-togethers in a local bar or coworking space with 20 to 50 people (and sometimes 200+, as in Chiang Mai, haha!).

##How do they look?
Wellโ€ฆ



(photos of our previous Berlin meetup by @xiufensilver)

##Why?
Itโ€™s a fun way to meet other travelers in a place youโ€™re at, or if youโ€™re not traveling yet to meet people who have been doing it for awhile.

Entrance is free, and theyโ€™re organized by members from here.

##Whenโ€™s the next meetup?
Almost every week, we have a meetup now somewhere in the world: hereโ€™s a full list of upcoming meetups

##Can I organize a meetup?
Yes! If youโ€™d like to organize a meetup, itโ€™s super easy! Fill out this form and @xiufensilver will contact you to help you arrange it. Usually the meetups are in the evening around 7pm in a local bar or coworking space. But weโ€™ve had brunch meetups too :smile:

Letโ€™s get more nomads together! :sunny:

How do you manage your time while freelancing and travelling?


by @ray | 5yr 5 years ago | 8 comments

Hi everyone,

Iโ€™m currently new to freelancing and Iโ€™m working on two projects at the moment. However, Iโ€™m not travelling yet as Iโ€™m still saving and building up a portfolio but at the moment I canโ€™t see how I could do this while travelling as it seems to take up all my time.

I know this is down to bad time management, but at the moment Iโ€™m spending about 12 hours a day working on clients websites. How do you current freelance web developers manage your freelancing work and have time to enjoy yourself while travelling?

Is there any tools or techniques that I can use to manage my time better?

How do you know you're "ready"?


by @fredrivett | 5yr 5 years ago | 19 comments

So for the last year or so Iโ€™ve been thinking of moving to Australia. Now itโ€™s not quite โ€˜nomadicโ€™, itโ€™s a permanent move to one location to work for a specific country, but itโ€™s similar to what you guys experience a lot.

Iโ€™m now at the point where a recruiter is recommending me to companies for roles, so this thing is all of a sudden very real. Iโ€™m 24, never lived abroad (although done some travelling, 3 weeks at a time max), single & looking for a job at a digital agency.

I can get a job in the UK, or get a job in Oz (Melbourne). Nothing in me wants the UK except that itโ€™s known. What will I do if I go to Australia and I hate it? How long will it take to make friends? Do I want to spend a couple of years of my life on the other side of the world to everyone I know and love?

For me it seems like if Iโ€™m going to do it now is the time. Iโ€™m young (ish), single & have no job stopping me.

I just want to know how others have felt in this situation, the decision they made and how it worked out for them.

Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Fred.
