How does lima’s new municipal taxi app TaxiMML compare to uber?
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?
We have never been in Taiwan (a couple of travelers) and I am just wondering is possible to find there some quite clean place to hang for a while? How it is better to start? Are there any website’s for short and long term rentals? It looks like AirBnB is not that popular there. So it seems that usual tactics - rent hotel or airbnb for short term and then look for long term just driving around might not work. It looks like everything there in Chinese - so if there are any tips how to overcome this - that is more then welcome Overall just interested in any suggestion - where best to go first? Also is it hard to extend your stay there - we are digital nomads - so working for some company overseas and probably will be extending as a tourist (If we like there).
Sorry for so many questions - but this is really some terra incognita for me
I vaguely remember hearing about such a service before, but I’m drawing a blank on the name. Basically I left my tablet on a connecting flight in Europe, right before my main flight to Thailand. They have my tablet and are willing to ship it out for me, but people have warned me there’s a big risk of it getting “lost in the mail” if I ship something expensive like that to Thailand.
I’m wondering if there’s a service or community, where I can find a nomad who’s in Europe/heading to Thailand soon, so I can have it shipped to them in Europe and pay them to ferry it down here for me? I met someone in Budapest a ways back who had built something for this type of use-case, but I can’t remember the name of it. Any help would be appreciated!
Looking for somewhere to celebrate New Years in Bali! I would prefer somewhere in Kuta or nearby, but if it’s worth the travel, give me your suggestions!
Not looking to spend too much money either.

Also any tipps for area to live in and work spaces are most welcome.
thanks and best regards,
Saw Vermont rolled out an incentive to get more remote workers to live there, Does anyone plan on applying and If so why? Reason I’m asking is I work for an organization in Tulsa, Ok that wants to also bring in Nomads, and would love to hear your thoughts on what such a plan should look like
Any help would be Awesome!
Hi all, need some help with schengen fuzziness… I’m a US citizen.
Does any know if the 90 day rule applies inside of Croatia. I’m seeing that Croatia isn’t part of schengen but adopts the same visa aquis. This isn’t clear to me.
If someone has a definitive answer please let me know as I’m approaching the 90 day rule in my travel plans and I want to hit Croatia and not have it count.
Thanks in advance.
Has anybody ever encountered a travel gear manufacturer that makes gear that is solid and durable, but that is intentionally designed to look old and crappy? For international travel, I want good, durable gear, but I’m uncomfortable walking around with slick, brand-new-looking, expensive-looking gear (especially with my family in tow). I’m happy to snatch up any good used gear (reduce, reuse, recycle) that we’re lucky enough to encounter, but selection is limited, and durability is often compromised. Seems like there’d be a decent market for some durable but ragged-looking travel gear. What i have in mind is luggage, backpacks, laptop cases, smartphone cases, camera bags, infant/toddler carriers, etc. I’m sensitive to the preppy fad of clueless, well-off westerners dressing up like the poor in naive but trendy mockery, but that’s not what I’m after, here. I just want good gear that doesn’t put a target on my back as we traipse around various parts of the world. Anybody have any thoughts on this…?
As part of the travel preparation routine I’m always looking for a better and more efficient way to plan my activities & things to be seen/done once I reach the destination and lately I’ve been using a number of apps like Sygic Travel (ex Tripomatic), Tripsee, & Triphobo (Google Trips yet to be tried), but the main pain is that it takes quite some time to get the whole planning done (especially, if you are aiming to visit a number of cities in a short period of time) + it’s not that simple to adjust the plan while you are on the move. That’s not to mention limited possibilities to buy attraction tickets via the app & have all the useful info under your hand all the time.
I’ve been checking the forum lately and found a couple of related posts (here & here), which also suggested such services like Wikitravel, Wikivoyage, Travelindependent and so on, but whilst being on the go most of the time, I would like to find out which mobile apps help you explore stuff like sightseeing spots, things to do, places to visit, etc & why have you picked them? (skipping TripAdvisor here as I’m looking for a more intelligent alternative)
Thanks in advance
I’d like one number that folks on WhatsApp and LINE can use. How do I do this with Google Voice? Would it work better if I switch to a Skype number?
I’m planning on moving to Spain and I’d like to connect with those who have tried to apply for this special type of long-term visa called as “non-lucrative residence visa”.
Going from what I’ve researched so far, it’s a good option for us nomads (more so: business owners) to stay longer in Spain (one only needs to prove steady stream of income of at least EUR 2.2K per month and that you should NOT work for Spain — so let’s say having a U.S. company and staying in Spain is fine).
So : my concerns right now revolve mainly on anyone’s experiences with applying for this type of visa. How difficult was it? How long did it take you?
Also, I’m wondering about how I can secure a rental space for a year if my lease depends on the approval from the embassy. I’m also wondering if Valencia is a good place to stay in?
I’m intending to become a proper digital nomad in January at the latest, and I am just starting to take some initial steps. I am a software developer and I intend to create an app and build a startup. Which one of these places would be best for that?
My idea is to develop my business in any of those places and open it here in Australia later on. Obviously, one of the main reasons why I have picked those places is that they are very affordable so that I can make the most of my savings from my current contract Goa would probably be my favourite pick since is quieter and not as crowded as Chennai (I think), plus living costs are about half of what they are in Ko Samui and Ko Lanta.
However, due to the nature of my business plan, Internet is a must. I have read your article about Goa and you said that Internet access is pretty bad, however I noticed that you wrote that a year ago and I also heard that this is currently changing. What’s the situation right now?
Hi all, can any recommend a decent iOS (multi device) personal finance app to track income and expenditure, that also supports multi currency when you move or travel to a new country. Someone suggested moneywiz but I’d like to get some feedback before I spend time and money on something when there might better options out there.

Occasionally I discover some really great tools that make life as a digital nomad orders of magnitude easier or better. Some of the ones I’ve found include:
So what products, services, tools, websites or apps have you discovered that have made your life easier or better?
I’m currently using Wifi Map Pro on iOS. Works pretty well, but no indication of speed or quality on that app. Any ideas?
I just got my first ever Macbook and I am curious to find out which apps you find the most useful when working and travelling. They can be directly related to work (I’m a writer, mostly), or for travelling, planning, organising or pure fun times.
So far I’ve got Skype and Chrome, hoping you can inspire me with some more interesting tools!
So, our doctor gave us a great book called Travelling Well… it’s a guide to staying healthy while travelling. However, I don’t want to carry it around the world! Can anyone recommend an iPhone app or website that is good for this? We also purchased a travelling medical kit, full of all sorts of goodies should we get ill… problem is I won’t remember what any of it’s for and looking for an app or online guide for medicines.
Thanks Digital Nomads!
I’ve been traveling Europe with my gf and visiting a new place every month for about 9 months. Picking AirBNB’s and rentals has been hard for a variety of reasons. One is not knowing how close the rental will be relative to the places we want to visit.
So we made this app: Distance Score: Prague. Right now it is just featuring Prague, but I’m curious to get your thoughts on other cities you’d like to see, as well as general feedback.
Hi guys. My plan is to travel from country to country, spending about 2 months in each country respectively. For most countries you can only apply for a visa about 2-3 months prior to your visit and some like China, require you to apply from your home country or country of residence. How do I know apply for visas for my second, third and fourth destination? Say I’ll apply for a China visa in South Africa (where I live), go to China for 2 months, then I want to go to Thailand for 2 months. Let’s assume I cannot apply for a China and a Thailand visa while still in South Africa… how do I go about that. And then, once I leave Thailand for say Vietnam, same question again. Do I have to go to the respective embassys in the countries Im staying in and apply for my next destination?
Thanks for your feedback and help in advance!
