Hello all! So excited to being participating in the nomad community!

My name is Kyle Maurer and I’m from Jackson, Michigan, USA. I’ve been working for a distributed company for the last seven years but am only now just starting to travel seriously. Three months from now I’ll be going on my first extended trip. My wife, daughter and I will be spending a month in Budapest followed by a few days in both Prague and Berlin. My intention is to take a working trip like this every year to a new destination.

I know it isn’t a full nomad lifestyle but I think it suits me and what works for my family.

Professionally I do marketing stuff for a WordPress plugin company called Sandhills Development. I also help organize some WordPress conferences, co-host a satirical WordPress advice podcast called Get Options, and play guitar in a band.

Looking forward to meeting many of you!

Hello everyone!

I’m new here. My name is Mathieu, I’m from New-Brunswick, Canada. I have a background in hospitality, business, and science. I still live in N.B. these days, but have lived in France for 4 months as well as Ontario, Canada before. I have also traveled in the US for work, and Scotland when I was a kid.

I am looking to meet with digital nomads to better understand some of the problems and challenges found in this lifestyle. My intent is to solve some of those problems by founding a company by end of this summer 2019. As such, I would love to hear about the problems you have encountered and how we can make the digital nomad life easier, as well as any process of re-locating overall!

I’ve heard that Thailand is a good and affordable destination for a digital nomad life. As such, I am currently exploring the possibility of re-locating there for the summer, and to work from there. I would love to hear any suggestions, or tips you might have for this trip!

The idea of being a nomad is a very personal one, that is about freedom for me. I hope to immerse myself in this culture and to make it easier for people to be a nomad and to work and the same time.

My experience of moving to France a few years ago was lifechanging. It really provided some perspective in my life and motivated me to create a life on my own terms. And now here I am!

Would anyone be willing to have an introductory video conference call to discuss some of the challenges you have encountered as a nomad so far? I intend to solve some of those problems this summer, and who knows where our conversation may take us!

Thank you for your consideration! I am really looking forward to becoming a part of this community.

Hi Everybody,

I’m Mauro from Marche, Italia. I’ve been working as software engineer for around 12 years, and since less than a couple of years I started to work for a distributed company which allows me to live from wherever I like on the European timezones, and for a few weeks also on more “exotic” timezones. The salary is not the best but team looks great, I can learn a lot and I’m free to work from home with the “safety” of a normal full-time contract.

Unluckily for me I’m well in my little village and I don’t like to make travelling a routine, so I tend to spend most of the time at home; I try to organise a few short trips a year of one/two months taking a place somewhere, working with a normal schedule at home and exploring the surroundings during weekends and vacations… it works quite well for me :slight_smile:
I’m on Couchsurfing, BeWelcome and Workaway, and I love to host people in my village.

Next trips in theory Norway by motorbike in July/August, and I thinking quite seriously to Thailand in November/December, but I’m still collecting info.

In my ideal world little villages on hills like mine would be crowded by people like us, and I don’t really like to live in cities so I’m grateful to companies which allow people to work from home… and when I travel I tend to stay in cities also because so I can remember that I don’t like concrete, traffic and crowded places :joy:

Just signed-up in this website, ask me if you need info about Italia and my region in particular :pray:

Hello everyone!
My name is Ana, I’m from Lisbon but currently in Malaga.

I’ve been away from home almost for 5 years.
I work for Oracle but my work allows me to be remote inside the EMEA area.

I am doing some side projects, namely the first coliving in Malaga.

Hope to exchange some ideas with other nomads.

Hi everyone!

My name is Tristan, and I’m from New Jersey in the states. I currently working in project management at a medical agency and have been here for almost 9 months. I have had a remote job in the past, but it was a contracted position, and this was in the cryptocurrency writing field.

I have traveled to over 65 countries in 6 continents and would love to travel more and explore the world! In my free time I enjoy biking, tennis, and investing (particularly in cryptocurrencies).

Currently, I am looking for any remote job in writing, project management, customer service, data entry, and more to try and be able to explore the world! Any direct contacts or referrals are appreciated!!!

Hey Nomads! I’m new here. My name is Mike and I’m from the Netherlands :netherlands:. Since a couple of months I’m living the remote life. Before this I had an office with employees and all, but I was tired of being in the same space with the same people every day of the week.

What do I do?
I run an online marketplace platform for home improvement called Vindy. :moneybag:It’s doing around $1,000,000 ARR now. We generate leads from home owners and sell them to contractors.

Side hustle
Since I work remotely, I started a little side hustle called Upvoty. It’s a feedback tool for mainly startups and SaaS businesses. It’s a typical startup that came from “scratching my own itch”. Because of the many users within my other startup Vindy, we get a lot of feedback on a daily basis. I needed a good way to collect this feedback in 1 overview and a proper way to communicate this with our users. Couldn’t find a good tool for a fair price, so built one myself. :moneybag:It’s doing a little over $700 MRR now.

Where can you find me?
Please connect with me on Instagram. I share a lot of stories and posts about my startup progress and processes over there. Physically I am usually in the Netherlands (Eindhoven or Amsterdam), but I travel a lot to Lisbon, Portugal. Still need to travel to Asia or somewhere outside Europe to make a real digital nomad move here I guess :).

Happy to connect! :raised_hands:


Hey, Josh here. I’m an Australian living on a small island in the Caribbean. That’s our base and we travel circa 6 months out of the year.

I’m looking for new friends who live a similar lifestyle. My girlfriend and I have lots of friends across the world, but it would be nice to have travel buddies also. Someone who appreciates that it’s not all adventure and pool parties, but needs solid work time also. I guess we are seeking someone who is already established and earning enough to be be able to afford something nicer than a hostel (no offence to anyone doing that sort of thing).

My company JMarketing has been around for quite a while now. We’re multi-award winning for our websites, have staff across 4 continents and deal with small and medium sized companies, as well as some silicon valley funded guys as well.

Looking forward to meeting some new buddies.

Josh & Tuscany

What’s your name?
Yann Eves

Where are you from?
Brighton, United Kingdom :uk:

How long have you been away from home?
:flight_departure: My wife (Hannah) and I left Brighton in January 2018, though my childhood was also nomadic

What do you do?
My wife works in video :framed_picture:, games :space_invader:, and property management :houses:, and I work in all things automation / programming :robot:. Some people might call that work, at least!

Where are you currently?
Check out nomadlist/@yann

Where are you going?
We’ve been enjoying looking after pets and homes on Trusted Housesitters :house_with_garden: :cat2: :dog2: - so, wherever that takes us!

What has been memorable for you so far?
On a solemn note, we can’t shake the sad picture of environmental destruction overseas by China. Or for something more cheery, we joined a dive boat off the coast of North Sulawesi, Indonesia and saw more marine life :fish: :blowfish: :tropical_fish: than we’d seen in our lives. A close second would be our ascent up Arguille du Midi 3842m from Chamonix, France - on top of the world!

Will you go home anytime soon?
We will make stops at home at least a couple times a year, prompted by friends’ weddings :bride_with_veil: especially.

What have you learnt during your time as a nomad?
You can’t escape yourself :brain: - if you want an easy life, stay static, but you’ll be missing the extreme highs and lows a nomadic lifestyle will bring you.

My name is Matthew Gordon. I’m 26, from California, and acquired a remote software developer job about three months ago. I’m extremely excited to travel, meet new people, and see what experiences the world has to offer. I have been in Mexico for a bit, but now deciding where to go next. My top choices at the moment are Prague, Budapest, and Belgrade. But please hit me up if you have recommendations, I’m open to many things.

I LOVE trying new foods/restaurants, finding unique bars for drinks, dancing, road trips, really anything as long as it’s with good people. I also play guitar, read novels, and am starting to get into photography.

As an ice breaker, I’ll start with a short story. One of the best things I’ve ever done was buy and ride a motorbike across Vietnam. It took about two and a half weeks. I started In Hanoi and ended in Ho Chi Minh City. Even though the bike would break in a different way every day, and the storms would loose winds that tried to blow me off the road I had the time of my life. I was in no way unique doing this but the people I met, the adventures I had, and the sense of freedom made it unforgettable.

Please hit me up if you want to talk about cities, traveling, guitar, or anything you want. I’m also quite easy to convince when deciding on a place to travel to.

I look forward to meeting everyone!

Hiii Nomads !
I’m Samantha from Switzerland, I’m heading to bangkok to escape the winter in December-January till June 2020

I’m helping people who hate their 8-17 job and lifestyle to become digital nomads actually, that’s my job :smiley: and I love to travel 6 month a year, and stay in Switzerland in Summer.

In Bangkok I will be staying in a condo but I don’t know yet in which neighbourhood, and I would like to be working a lot, be productive, and also meet nomads who are in the same mindset in the moment (grow their business, not chilling)

Do you know some places, cool coworkings, or group of people that I could join to meet DN’s ? :smiley:

Looking forward to meet more of you, and if you’re in BKK, message me!

Hello awesome nomads- I’m Sara!

Where are you from?
I’m originally from Texas.

How long have you been away from home?
I’ve moved around the globe a bit for the last 10 years. However, I like to stay in each place for a few years before the next adventure :smile:

What do you do?
I’m the Founder of a new pet sitting and travel app called Pet Digs :dog::cat:

I’m excited to help other nomads travel more easily! The idea is that you get a free place to stay in exchange for taking care of a pet! We just launched in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are currently available to US residents and citizens, however, we hope to expand to international travelers soon. Please contact me for details if you would like to join our community!

Where are you currently?
I’m currently based in Barcelona and go back and forth between here and the US (with some other travels on the side).

What has been memorable for you so far?
The unexpected friendships that I have created along the way have been the most memorable part of the nomad experience. Even if I was somewhere for a few weeks or months, it was wonderful to make a connection and stay in touch.

Look forward to connecting with other nomads here! Feel free to say hello!

Happy travels!

How did you fine the Como region? Do you think there’s taxis or public transportation to hop around? We won’t have a car, only bikes. : )

Hello, mind if I ask you a few questions about the Como region? I’m considering going in April-May, but we won’t have a car, only our bikes. Would you say there’s sufficient public transportation to get around the area? Any insight is helpful! Thanks.
