What’s your name?
Michel

where are you from?
Aruba

how long have you been away from home?
I have been away from home for around 19 years, but had two long stints in California and Florida, before finally going true nomad in June this year.

what do you do?
I am a software architect. What that really means is that I do a lot of Lynda courses and get myself involved in starting a lot of applications that someone else finishes.

where are you currently?
In Aruba
where are you going?
Dominican Republic for two weeks, then back to San Francisco(where my job is), then to Sao Paolo, back to Aruba, then Medellin.

will you go home anytime soon?
I’m home now.

what have you learnt during your time as a nomad?
It’s not easy to eat healthy, so I tend to feel hungrier more often. Said goodbye to having a meaningful romantic relationship. It’s better to have less than more, so moving around is getting easier.

People are nice so far, but the more I nomad the more I want to have a base everywhere on earth :slight_smile:

Hi folks, I’m Anthony from Upstate NY (Washington County). I’ve been nomadic since May of this year (2018). I’m a programmer/project manager/indie hacker (you can check me out here: https://formico.io). I’m currently living near Medellín Colombia, planning to stay in Colombia until the holidays, then explore more of Latin America.

tl,dr. Feel free to ping me to hangout/cocktails/co-working via Slack handle: @tomchentw.

Hi everyone, I’m Tom Chen (tomchentw) from Taiwan and I’ve been doing remote jobs since the beginning of 2015.

I worked mostly in web front-end, with specialities in React.js and Single-Page-Applications.

During leisure hours I like exploring cocktail bars and hostels, both are really new and interesting to me. I’m currently traveling/nomading in Singapore, and planned to go to Malaysia and Thailand in my next few weeks. Probably east Europe after these in the 2019 Winter/Spring.

Personality-wise, I’m an introvert but trying to be more socialized. I like meeting new people but not too much at the same time, which I really enjoy chatting deeply with a person in a day :slight_smile:.

Hi Adam, I am also from the Uk too! I just moved to Bali to scout out the digtial nomad community here. My next stop is Sydney. However, I am keen to learn more about Chiang Mai. It sounds awesome from what I understand. Would it be cool to connect over email and talk some more? Also, I saw you want to hang out in France for a bit… My boyfriend is French so if you have any questions about France, let me know! Thanks, Alice!

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!
