If luggage space (and weight) was not a problem, what items will you travel with that you can't carry now?


by @carlosaave | 4yr  | 9 comments

I know that when you become a digital nomad you have to become somehow a minimalist. But if luggage space and weight were not problems. I would like to know what items would you miss traveling with. I certainly would carry. A guitar, a set of good knives, a pair of Hiking shoes, (they are sooo bulky), a good camping tent.

What about you?

At one point I had a guitar, a microphone tripod, a microphone, and a small console to connect everything to the computer. I had to leave all of that behind. I would love to travel like Iโ€™m doing right now, but keep in touch with my hobbiesโ€ฆ renting stuff is so expensiveโ€ฆ

Nothing really. Iโ€™ve pretty much forsaken carry on only because not zealously adhere to some minimalist standard at the cost of my own life quality on a day to day basis. Not that I pack much but having a few things that make life better is worth it when you travel for long periods of time.

@carlosaav - Iโ€™d not really thought about it but one of the advantages of being a woman is that you can throw together a fairly formal wedding outfit with clothes that work for other occasions :slight_smile:

I wouldnโ€™t have left all our boardgames with a friend back home :frowning:. I am already restocking now that we are settled for a bit though :blush:

I bring my Traktor S2 already as itโ€™s not that heavy and pretty thin. I think I would have kept my Yamaha HS7โ€™s instead of getting a JBL xtreme (although, no regrets on the purchase. It packs a punch for a small package).

Other than that, we are pretty minimal and donโ€™t really miss anything we donโ€™t already have. We already travel with our juicer and Vitamix haha (although I wish I had bought the 220V versionsโ€ฆ)

Are you suggesting something like Hermioneโ€™s invite carrying pouch? If so, then I would carry a studio apartment from place to place. That way I would have a consistent home wherever I went. I do use check-in so I do carry two good knives with me.

Yes exactly, like Hermioneยดs or Felix the cat bag.

I was talking to a friend who has been a Digital Nomad longer than I, and he told me that one of the things he misses the most is a good kitchen set (knives, pans, pots) he travels every two months through AirBnB and wellโ€ฆ you may know that AirBnB is kind of a lottery regarding kitchen suplies.

Another thing that happen to me this year is that I had three weddingsโ€ฆ I donโ€™t want to carry around formal clothingโ€ฆ but rental is usually half the price than buying a suitโ€ฆ so I ended up buying oneโ€ฆ but nowโ€ฆ I have no idea what to do with itโ€ฆ the sad part is to know that if I leave it behind I might needed in the futureโ€ฆ

Post Covid Tour Trip: Any Ideas ? Who Joins?

 

by @boccaccio | 17h 17 hours ago | 0 comments

I can't help thinking of making a trip after this annoying virus. A road trip, boat trip, bike, foot, anything..

Any ideas? Any tips? and Anyone who would like to join or co-organize?

It could be for example, to travel in several Countries and being hosted (when possible) by some other members.

Or renting a van and making a long road trip

Or even by bike, an entire Country

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


by @beloruchka | 4d 3 days ago | 7 comments

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!

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


in Poland by @davda1546 | 13d 13 days 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.

Project Fi (and AT&T Roaming) in Canada


in Canada by @danicatalina | 3yr 2 years ago | 4 comments

Going on 3-6 month #vanlife trip throughout the USA and Canada, and setting up my data connectivity to be able to work on the road. Without going into depth (unless you ask), Iโ€™m trying to figure out options for cell service as a US citizen in Canada, and looking for everyoneโ€™s input:
(1) Project Fi: any experience or feedback on how Fi works in Canada? Iโ€™ll be almost exclusively in British Columbia.
(2) US Carriers: any feedback on AT&T or Verizon?

Thanks, all!

Favorite towns in Mexico (and near it)?


in Mexico by @azurio | 3yr 3 years ago | 5 comments

Hey guys!

We love Mexico. Weโ€™re excited to find outstanding towns to live in for 2-12 months at a time. Weโ€™re also open to Central American gems.

We especially appreciate learning about those smaller towns that are lesser known but amazing. Personal favorites!

Here are some of our interests:

  • a paradise vibe: ocean, lush greenery, vibrant arts, and/or old town charm
  • at least 3 Mbps download speed
  • great cost of living
  • considerable expat and retiree crowd
  • not too much of an urban city โ€” though a smaller town outside a city can work
  • a bit touristy is okay

Here are lesser-discussed towns that caught our eye โ€” weโ€™d love impressions of these and more that come to mind:

  • Huatulco
  • Ixtapa
  • Guanajuato
  • And more?

Thanks so much, guys!

What items/services etc did you wish you had the first time you set off to travel?


by @theunisk | 3yr 3 years ago | 3 comments

A friend of mine is setting off on her first long solo trip, starting in Brazil. She will initially be backpacking but may turn to working on the road at some point.

Iโ€™d like to get her a nice gift for the trip and though I have a few ideas, I thought Iโ€™d come here for some further inspiration. What have you found yourself missing on the road, or what item or service has made your travels better/more comfortable/enjoyable ?
An example from my experience: a way to organise laundry, eg packing cubes or dry bags.

Should I care about my carry on luggage size?


by @nunoarruda | 4yr 3 years ago | 6 comments

I will be nomading full time soon and I will travel with a regular backpack and a carry on bag.

As nomads we travel on many different airlines and they have different carry on bag size standards:

Should I care about that? Did any of you had any issues with carry on luggage?

How do you get a SIM card (and data plan) in Colombia if you don't know Spanish


in Colombia by @balindsieber | 4yr 3 years ago | 2 comments

I just arrived to Medellin and did not anticipate that no one would speak any english at all. (Iโ€™m used to Asia where everyone knows the basics)

I need a SIM card, I found a place at the mall where they sell them, but itโ€™s not a simple transaction and I donโ€™t speak Spanish.

Any thoughts appreciated.

Which Professional Association(s) do you belong to (and why)?


by @panoramica | 4yr 4 years ago | 3 comments

Iโ€™m thinking about joining a Professional Association.

Iโ€™m interested in networking, mentoring (being mentored), access to discounted services (e.g. insurance) and notification of other things that Iโ€™m currently not doing but should be doing.

Iโ€™m not so interested in othersโ€™ perceptions, e.g. looking more professional/trustworthy.

Iโ€™m based in New Zealand but curious about the international associations as well.

A quick Google gives me the Institute of IT Professionals http://iitp.nz/ in New Zealand.

Thanks,
Dan

Can anyone advise on the structure (and location) for setting up a digital agency?


by @matttutt1 | 5yr 4 years ago | 4 comments

Hi there,

This might be a bit vague but hopefully someone out there can help. Iโ€™m from the UK and am registered as a Sole Trader currently. Iโ€™m looking to create a new business, and am unsure of the best structure to use. I donโ€™t really want to continue in this business as a Sole Trader because I donโ€™t think it has so much credibility compared to something like a limited company.

The business is going to be a digital marketing agency in a specific niche, itโ€™s going to be very small scale with very low overheads. Iโ€™m not going to be based in any specific location so Iโ€™m also unsure about which location to officially base my business (base in the sense that it will be my registered business address for example, I wouldnโ€™t have any offices unless just Virtual).

I also donโ€™t imagine that Iโ€™ll be turning over much as it will likely just be me, I may hire some freelancers at a later date but that depends on whether I can find enough clients.

Appreciate any help on this, thanks for reading!

Is there a secure (and easy) way to receive mail in Phnom Phen?


by @kathrynoh | 5yr 4 years ago | 0 comments

I recently lost/misplaced my ATM card and need to get it replaced. Iโ€™m currently in Thailand but leave early next month so figured I could get it sent to my next place, in Phnom Phen. However, the person Iโ€™m renting off has said itโ€™s very insecure and difficult to send mail to a residential address so to go ask if I can get it sent to the embassy. Iโ€™m only there for less than a month though and donโ€™t want to be cutting it fine again.

Is there any other way to receive mail?

Can I travel with desktop computer components in my cabin luggage?


by @baia | 5yr 4 years ago | 8 comments

Iโ€™m part of the 0.01% who dislike working on a laptop and require a big fat LCD and desktop keyboard on a huge desk surface, with a large glass of something on the side (you can do that with a laptop too but still).

As Iโ€™m soon moving to a medium town of Peru where modern IT hardware may be hard to get, Iโ€™ll want to bring my main PC components (motherboard/CPU/RAM/HDD/GPU) in my cabin luggage.

Has anyone else in the world done that before and if so are there things to avoid and smart tricks to follow?

Long term Bali nomads: how do you obtain items unavailable locally?


by @nihilista | 5yr 5 years ago | 4 comments

Iโ€™m planning on trying Bali as my first location after doing some extensive research. I plan on taking enough items (mostly particular skincare items that, as it is, I order from Ebay) to last 2-3 months, but if I run out, what are my options? I assume itโ€™s possible to have anything shipping though the fees may be high.

What do you do when you need something unavailable locally? Pay lots of shipping? Fly over to Singapore?

Also, does anyone know if itโ€™s best to have items shipped or to carry extra luggage if I want to bring more items? I plan to find an area on the island thatโ€™s suitable and stay there for about 5-6 months so Iโ€™ll need large supplies of a few items - like the particular sunscreen that I use. :wink:
