In which cities thereโ€™re meal delivery services that provide customers with weekly pre-proportioned meals with recipes?


by @denis.peskov | 4yr  | 3 comments

Think American Blue Apron, or Moscow-based Elementaree for that matter. Iโ€™m not a big fan of food-shopping or market-haggling, you know. Yet Iโ€™m OK with cooking myself :slight_smile: Such services would definitely make a stay easier.

Take a look at these: http://blog.marketresearch.com/12-meal-kit-delivery-services-to-watch
I see Hello Fresh advertised a lot. Iโ€™m a chef so I donโ€™t need or use any of these but seems like a great opportunity to expand globally, except in markets where buying fresh, prepared food is super-cheap (Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam) - so much so that many apartments donโ€™t have proper kitchens (only a microwave, fridge and maybe a kettle). Probably best niche for this is customers with special dietary requirements - Whole30, Paleo, gluten-free, organic, etcโ€ฆ

In Australia there are a heap including delivery services for paleo or other dietary needs. You can also get services like fruit and vegetable boxes delivered straight from the farm.

Itโ€™s pretty easy to find stuff like that with a google search if youโ€™re in an English speaking country but a bit more challenging when you donโ€™t speak the language. I did notice a few services coming up on my instagram feed when I was in Japan though.

Prague, for sure (but I do not have a name in mind).

Plus DameJidlo, a famous food delivery startup.
And Tesco does grocery delivery to your home.
For these two last ones, of course, you have to do the proportioning yourself :wink:

How can I get a refund and cancel my membership?

 

by @rid123 | 2h 2 hours ago | 0 comments

When I go to support and click "refund and cancel membership" after only have used it for 4 days it takes me to the welcome page to fill out more information and won't let me cancel and get a refund. What did you do to get around this? I don't want it to be 7 days later and NomadList does not have an e-mail I can reach out to. Help!

How to get post abroad for UK Expats??

 

by @davda1546 | 3d 2 days ago | 0 comments

Hi guys, wonder if you can help. I'm from the UK, and my husband and I are looking to go across Europe this coming year.

What's the best solution you've found re having all your post sent to you? I've found a site online that will set up a street address in the UK for you and scan in post to your email address, just wondering if you've found any other ways?

We've set up paperless statements, which has helped but with things like mortgages, official docs etc - how have you got around it?

Thanks so much!

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

 

in Poland by @davda1546 | 4d 3 days ago | 0 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.

Where do I get good legal advice/support to have a long-term stay?

 

in Lisbon, Portugal by @mzorrilla | 6d 6 days ago | 0 comments

Hello, everyone!

My idea is to stay as low as 6 months and as long as a year (maybe, who knows) over Lisbon after doing some analysis from many cities in Europe.

I'm an Argentinian and Chilean (both nationalities) so... no Euro-pass for me (getting my Italian nationality could take 2 years easily). I'm also a remote worker and I have a really good income (I work for a Silicon Valley company) so I can show more than enough resources to stay in the country.

Everything I see online doesn't inspire me much confidence (most sites looks a bit scammy) and this is not a "vacation stay"... I want to be clear my head far away from Argentina right now. If someone has a good website, recommendations, etc I will super appreciate.

Thanks in advance!

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


in Croatia by @ld | 16d 15 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 | 20d 19 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 | 22d 21 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.

Best place to set up a company selling digital services?


by @pras_k | 1yr 1 year ago | 10 comments

Whatโ€™s the best place?
For residency Iโ€™m looking at Portugal and they have the NHR (non habitual resident) program which would exempt dividends from foreign income.
So all Iโ€™m really looking for is the best place to actually start the company.
Biggest factors are of course low taxes and ease of setting up the company plus a business bank account that enables me to receive payments through Stripe.

What I found so far:
Hong Kong
Corporate tax rate of 16.5% (8.25% for the first HK$2 million)
โŠ•/โŠ– offshore income from outside HK is exempt from taxation but itโ€™s not clear whether this can be done in the first year and prorated or if itโ€™s only through filing the offshore exemption claim. This might take two years and requires not income from HK at all. More info on that would be great
โŠ– seems very difficult to get a business bank account
โŠ– necessary services and fees are roughly around โ‚ฌ2000 / year
โŠ– accounting requirements seem to be very strict
โŠ• Doesnโ€™t require local partner
โŠ• Agencies available that seem to handle most of the work

Singapore
Corporate tax rate of 17% (0% on the first S$100k, 8.5% up to S$300k)
โŠ– requires a local director. What are the implications of this?

Malta
Corporate tax rate of 35%
There is the โ€œfull imputation systemโ€ but I donโ€™t really understand it.
"In most cases, the tax refund to the shareholder is 6/7 of the tax paid by the company on profits distributed as dividends. The tax refund rate may be different in the following cases: " This would result in an effective corporate tax of around 5%.
โŠ– European customers would have to pay VAT and Iโ€™d have to deal with that

Cyprus
Corporate tax rate of 12.5% and there seem to be ways to lower this
โŠ– European customers would have to pay VAT and Iโ€™d have to deal with that
โŠ– requires staying in Cyprus for 2 months / year

I find it surprising how much research this requires and how much โ€œit dependsโ€ information is out there when Iโ€™d assume that there are probably thousands of digital nomads who probably have very similar requirements.

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.

Hi everyone,

Iโ€™m thinking of changing my current setup for mail/post receiving and scanning (at the moment I have some friends doing it for me), and I was wondering if anyone has any specific feedback/advice regarding UK companies. Iโ€™m currently looking at UKPostBox.

Any personal insight would be greatly appreciated!

Does anyone use a clothing storage and delivery, or online wardrobe service?


by @cobolt_blue | 5yr 5 years ago | 2 comments

Iโ€™m a minimalist, next week I move into a 45L backpack. But, I discovered a problem on my trial run. I have clients some of which requiring me to have a nice suit while Iโ€™m on site. While it doesnโ€™t happen often, I canโ€™t exactly come back and grab a suit before a client engagement. Iโ€™ve found http://www.garderobeonline.com, which looks great except for the limit minimum of 50 items. Since they charge $350/mo itโ€™s a great service for someone with a giant wardrobe. Has anyone found a similar program that fits a minimalist lifestyle better?

Does anyone know European mail-scanning services (similar to Earth Class Mail)?


by @dpt | 5yr 5 years ago | 9 comments

Iโ€™m looking for a service like Earth Class Mail that scans my physical mail and emails it for me. There seems to be tons of services like that in the US, but Iโ€™d need one in Europe (bonus points for flashy locations like Switzerland).

I did some research and found some virtual office services that would offer such a service, but they all seem to charge ~70โ‚ฌ/month and thatโ€™s a little too much for the 2-3 letters per month I receive.

Are there any decent global laptop rental & delivery services?


by @normaldude | 5yr 5 years ago | 0 comments

Like if youโ€™re traveling around the world, your Windows laptop gets stolen at 2am, and you just need a quick rental laptop, delivered to your hotel room ASAP, for using during the next 1-2 weeks. As a long-term solution, youโ€™ll mail order a custom Windows laptop, but that may take a while to assemble & deliver. So for now, you just need a quick short-term temporary laptop replacement.

I know that there are overnight laptop rental services, but they seem focused on the US marketโ€ฆ

Are there any overnight laptop rental services for global travelers?
