How do you organize your book notes if you use an e-reader?


by @gpestana | 4yr  | 14 comments

Hey there! As a nomad, how do you organize your book notes? I used to write notes on the physical pages, but now since Iโ€™m always traveling Iโ€™m trying to avoid physical books and it became difficult to keep track of my book notes. Also, I feel that it is so much more effective to retain the information on the book when I take notes of what Iโ€™m readingโ€ฆ

Any ideas for tools/methods to organize your book notes on the road?

I use a service called Clippings.io that can automate clipping your Kindle Highlights page into Evernote at the push of a button. Itโ€™s $1.99/month, but useful if you read a lot and notes are important for you to reference.

Hereโ€™s a tangential questionโ€ฆ For both Kindle & iBooks, every now and again, an author will โ€œupdateโ€ their book, and I see the update waiting in my app to be installed. If I do that, will it wipe out the notes I made on the previous version of the book? Or are they retained? Anyone have any experience with this? Thanks!

All your kindle notes are available at https://kindle.amazon.com/your_highlights There also a not that complicated process of getting them into Evernote: https://blog.evernote.com/blog/2015/03/25/how-to-save-kindle-highlights-and-notes-into-evernote/

I just tried it and the Your Highlights feature seems to work for accounts connected with Amazon.com.au so there should be a way to get it to work with other overseas accounts (DE, UK). It does take a while to load each book, it uses infinite scrolling (scroll to the bottom of the page to start loading the next book of notes). Itโ€™s also showing my annotated notes as well as my highlights.

Exactly, I wonder how to have those notes/highlights sync into one place. Plus, having a way to edit and add annotations after reading the book would be nice feature.

Driving from Italy to Croatia..how to handle passport?


in Croatia by @ld | 9d 8 days ago | 3 comments

Hello, we are US citizens that have been able to stay in Italy past our standard visa stay due to covid. Now we must leave. We want to drive to Croatia as our โ€œout of EUโ€ stay. But Iโ€™m now wondering what considerations I need to take care of for my visa. I wonโ€™t go through an airport and get my passport stamped. But I assume I need to get my passport stamped as a way to prove Iโ€™m out of the EU.

Anyone else travel in and out of Schengen zone via car? Or know what I should do to properly handle the visa situation? I get unclear answers online. Hmm.

Appreciate your help!

Introduce yourself โ€” who are you, where are you and what do you do?

 

by @coffeeshopceo | 13d 13 days ago | 672 comments

tl;dr: introduce yourself in this thread.

We must all get sick of the same backpacker travel questions when we meet new friends, I know I do.

You know the ones - where are you from, whereโ€™ve you been, where are you going, what do you do, how long have you been doing it - etc.

The novelty of answering these questions wears off after maybe a week, but theyโ€™re nonetheless insightful and no matter how much we hate them, we find ourselves asking others.

So letโ€™s bring the dreaded backpacker questionnaire to NomadForum and introduce ourselves shall we?

**

  • whatโ€™s your name?
  • where are you from?
  • how long have you been away from home?
  • what do you do?
  • where are you currently?
  • where are you going?
  • what has been memorable for you so far?
  • will you go home anytime soon?
  • what have you learnt during your time as a nomad?
  • [insert your own question here]

**

No need to answer them all if you donโ€™t want to :smile:
But the more you shareโ€ฆ The merrier!

Best/quickest way from Italy to Croatia?


in Croatia by @ld | 15d 15 days ago | 3 comments

Hello,

We are in Umbria until August 31. We've been here since March, but crisis-level visa extensions are over. After that we have to leave the EU. We would like to stay out of the USA (our home) due to it's covid crisis, at the same time we want to be responsible about travel. Ideally we would not travel at all, rather stay hidden in the countryside of Umbria forever until covid is more under control globally, but here we are!

So we must leave the Schengen zone. We should avoid USA. We should avoid long air travel.

We were thinking Croatia.

Do you recommend a route to Croatia? We are open to long train rides. Ideally not long ferry rides. Is there a ferry route under 4 hours? I read about it...I don't see it. If not, the other option is to make our way north and up over to Croatia via train.

I'd appreciate your thoughts and insights!

Thanks.

Where should I set up my company as a remote worker?

Iโ€™m looking for any recommendations for services or people others have used to get answers on the best place to set up their businesses based on their personal circumstances.

Leaning towards Singapore after a ton of research, but would really like some concrete advice before jumping in.

Appreciate it!

Anybody bring their car to Mexico instead of flying?


in Mexico by @digitaldiva | 20d 19 days ago | 1 comment

Iโ€™m curious whether anyone drove to Mexico instead of flying and used their car down there. Iโ€™ve heard bad stories of people driving down there but not sure I believe them. How safe is it to drive through rural areas, and to park in cities? It would be cool to have the car to explore while there.

Did you learn any Thai before staying in Chiang Mai?


in Chiang Mai, Thailand by @digitaldiva | 20d 19 days ago | 0 comments

Iโ€™m curious to know how many people learned some Thai before going there. Learning languages is a hobby of mine but Iโ€™m very put off by how complex the writing system is, and if I decide not to learn it Iโ€™ll probably cross Chiang Mai off my bucket list. I prefer to be at least conversational in a language before I do an extended stay in a country. Iโ€™m curious how people who learned no Thai did getting by. And Iโ€™m curious, from people who did learn some, if itโ€™s any easier than it seems? Thanks!

How to get SMS verifications for banks while traveling?

 

by @jackgopack | 24d 24 days ago | 39 comments

Any suggestions for seamlessly receiving SMS Verifications from US financial institutions and other sites while traveling internationally continuously? Wonโ€™t keep my US Verizon account due to cost and currently plan to use local sims at each destination (T-Mobile and Project Fi are NOT an option as they terminate for continuous roaming). In summation, I wonโ€™t have a US mobile account.

Unless Iโ€™m missing something, which is very possible, this appears to be the single most complex issue Iโ€™ve encountered in my preparations, and one that no one addresses. I would greatly appreciate any possible solution that works 100% of the time. Canโ€™t afford surprises in this regard. Many Thanks! Jack.

How do you organize cables in your backpack?


by @refuseillusion | 4yr 4 years ago | 11 comments

Iโ€™m currently thinking of getting a packing cube and velcro binder after I used a GRID-IT organizer which couldnโ€™t fit all my stuff in the end.
I know some use ziplock bags, but how durable is that? Wonโ€™t it just be one big mess of cable salad?

Whatโ€™s your approach?

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


by @nomadforum | 5yr 4 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:
