June 2017: Prague or Budapest?


in Prague, Czechia by @joshua | 3yr  | 5 comments

Hi guys!

Iโ€™m currently in Vietnam, then heading back to Portland, Oregon for a couple months.

Itโ€™s been awhile since Iโ€™ve been to Europe, and Iโ€™ve never been to Eastern Europe.

For those who have spent time in both Prague and Budapest, is there a city you prefer over the other? I realize theyโ€™re relatively close, and I can always take weekend trips to the city that I donโ€™t choose to stay in.

Thinking I will be there for at least a month. Will be working, but Iโ€™ll also take some time off. Prefer walkability. Decent internet.

Any input or opinions on this would be great! Thanks.

My wife prefers prague even though itโ€™s super touristy. Itโ€™s small and easy to walk everywhere. Feels safe and magical. Budapest has amazing architecture but itโ€™s more spread out, feels like a much bigger city, need to take buses or taxis around. Pricewise theyโ€™re about the same if you avoid the tourist stuff. Iโ€™d probably also vote for Prague, thereโ€™s some great old coffeeshops for working, a bigger digital nomad scene. Though the others have a point - summer is the worst time for tourists, so prague might get a little unbearable.

Iโ€™ve been to both. Budapest has a young college party atmosphere if you are looking for it and is more off the beaten path, but that wonโ€™t be true for much longer. I was absolutely taken away by the architecture of Prague, the public parks and beer gardens, and the sights. I really want to go back to Prague, much more so than Budapest.

I want to say Prague because I want to keep Budapest all for myself, but that would be doing you a huge disservice. GO TO BUDAPEST. Prague sucks a big one now, overcrowded, overpriced, not that nice. Go for a weekend to do the tourist stuff. Budapest is THE PLACE you need to be.

Me and a friend are headed to Budapest for June and July. Iโ€™ve never been to Prague before, but I think itโ€™s considerably more touristy than Budapest. Budapest has more recently become somewhat of a hub for DNs in Europe, and I think there would be more chance of finding a good community there than Prague. Also, Iโ€™m English and the English are pretty well hated in Prague I believe for our terrible behaviour on stag/hen weekends that often take place there!

Thereโ€™s a DN guide to Budapest available on Kindle which Iโ€™ve read and would recommend.

With whatever you choose - I would recommend booking accommodation sooner rather than later as everything will get booked up very fast in summer. We just booked our apartment for 2 months in Budapest as everyday I was looking I was finding less and less available, and with some increasing dramatically with the summer demand.

We booked out accommodation in Budapest via Airbnb, worked out about 700 euros a month for a 2 bed apartment in the city centre. Supposedly Airbnb is your best bet because landlords tend not to like short lets in Budapest and often want 2 months rent as security deposit.

Hope that helps :slight_smile:

How to get SMS verifications for banks while traveling?

 

by @jackgopack | 22h 21 hours ago | 38 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.

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

 

by @coffeeshopceo | 2d 1 day ago | 670 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 Place in South East Asia to stay for 6 months+ (Tax purposes)

 

in Indonesia by @miklaskroager | 2d 2 days ago | 0 comments

We're looking for a country in south east asia that can function as our base, mainly for tax purposes. Meaning it will have to be a place where we can stay for the 183 days required without too much hassle.

We've been looking at Thailand, but have heard that it's very hard to do visa runs etc., so what other can you recommend? Indonesia looked like a good option, but the income rate is a flat 20% and very high for the region.

Anyone wants to learn to sail in the Mediterranean? (Sep or Oct)

 

by @viktor | 5d 4 days ago | 1 comment

I'm thinking about taking a sailing (yachting) course in the Mediterranean Sea this coming September or October. Thus far from my research, it seems that most courses are held in locations with not many digital nomads. My thinking is that it would be more fun to go to a place with like-minded people. Therefore, I'm wondering if anyone else is interested in taking a sailing course in the Mediterranean this fall? If not, do you know a location that offers good sailing courses, where there is also many digital nomads / nomad infrastructure?

Where do you work from in Lisbon? ๐Ÿงณโ˜•


in Lisbon, Portugal by @dominiksobe | 8d 7 days ago | 1 comment

Hi everyone,

I am going to move to Lisbon in July and I was wondering where you guys work from? Do you have any recommendations for working on a budget? Any good cafรจs or cheap coworking spaces?

I did some research and found some coworking spaces for > ~ 100โ‚ฌ p. month which is pretty reasonable but too much for me right now.

Thanks!

Best way to find a basic room/flat in Prague?


in Prague, Czechia by @mappleton | 10mo 9 months ago | 16 comments

Have been stalking craigslist for weeks. Quite a few properties posted. But after sending 20 inquiries have 0 replies. Beginning to wonder if itโ€™s a city that requires on-the-ground apartment hunting. Can anyone whoโ€™s been through Prague before clue me in?

Will be there from April 10th until July. Need a basic, short-term, central room rental. Nothing fancy. Will be working from a co-working space. Under 9000 CZK seems reasonable from what Iโ€™ve seen.

P.S. If anyone else is Prague-bound this summer and room hunting, leave a note! Definitely up for sharing a place with other nomads. Or just hanging out / having co-working sessions.

Which countries should I live in from june to december?


by @alexandersupertramp | 1yr 1 year ago | 1 comment

Hi everyone, :wave:

I want to live abroad from June to December 2019 as a digital nomad.

As I live near Paris the plan is to run away from this high cost of living, crazy stressful life and to live in places of good quality of life.

I think it will be nice to live in a few countries (going twice to the same country is ok for me).

I am already looking for places to go on the website but if I can have some feedback from those who already have a good experience in traveling I would be happy :slight_smile:

I think countries in Asia such as Indonesia (I went to Java and Bali last year for a whole month), Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines would be great.

Which places that would suit my needs do you suggest me ?

My criteria are :
-low cost of living : I was self-employed but now I am creating my own online business so during the creation process until I can have a minimum viable product, I wonโ€™t have any income and will live on my savings.
-safe place : Even if there are beautiful and not expensive countries in Central and South America, unfortunately it doesnโ€™t seem to be safe at all. I donโ€™t want to be a victim of extorsion, kidnapping, assault, terrorism, piracy, etc. I know there is no such place on earth but some areas are more risky than others.
-places suitable for work : cafรฉs with wireless internet, coworking spaces. No need for optical fiber, an internet connection that is good enough to load regular websites is fine.
-not a big city : I am not a city person so it would be a pain for me to live in capitals or other big cities. I think Ubud is the maximum for me as far as cars, buildings, amount of concrete are concerned (I went there last April and I appreciated it because people are friendly, there is no huge concrete towers, some quiet and soothing places to chill). People may not be a problem as long as I donโ€™t feel stifling.
-good quality of live : quite peaceful (far from poisonous stress of modern occidental countries), nice landscapes (In France I live near an airport and a power station with fields of transmission towers so I need mountains/seas/forests, in short, nature), not over polluted.
-Even if I will not be there for vacation, I want to be able to get away from my screen in order to discover the country a little (especially hiking in nature and some visiting some cultural places) and have a social life so I donโ€™t want to be isolated and lonely in a place where I would struggle finding a grocery store, a restaurant, a bar, a gym, a diving center, etc. and meet no one. However, I just want to live a simple life so I donโ€™t care about crazy night lifestyle like in really touristic cities, I donโ€™t care if there is not a night club/bar/restaurant in every street corner and I donโ€™t need a place with thousands of things to do.
-vegan-friendly

Do such heavens exist ?

Thank you for your help

What do you think about Prague as a nomad spot?


in Prague, Czechia by @matousvins | 4yr 3 years ago | 4 comments

Prague ranks very high on nomadlist, but I havenโ€™t met many nomads who spent some time there. Iโ€™m working on some pieces for Czech press and Iโ€™d like to include some of your thoughts. Can you help me a bit? Why did you chose the city? Did you like living and working in Prague? Why? What do you think would help you to enjoy it more? Were there some major problems? What was your favourite spot to work from? Did you meet some other nomads?

Other places like Ubud, Chiang Mai, Vienna, Prague...?


in Chiang Mai, Thailand by @rich | 4yr 3 years ago | 10 comments

Hi,
weโ€™re having trouble deciding where to go in the fall (September, October, November) or over the winter for that matter. We loved Chiang Mai, Ubud, Vienna, Prague, Lisbon and weโ€™re looking for a similar place to stay for 1-2 months. Weโ€™ll be in Germany and have a car. We wanted to go to Italy, but weโ€™re not getting excited about any place in particular - or we just donโ€™t know where to go. Any ideas?

What do we like? Pleasant weather, open minded people (whose eyes donโ€™t fall out when they see a black girl), healthy food (in restaurants and supermarkets) with vegetarian options, a chill vibe. Nice rentals (we use Airbnb a lot). A nice compromise between nature and not feeling like youโ€™re in the middle of nowhere. Oh, and no bugs or mosquitos please (they love us, but our bodies hate them. We get huge welts that stay for weeks).

Thanks!
Rich & Chinny

How to find emergency decent shortish term housing in Prague?


in Prague, Czechia by @kathrynoh | 5yr 5 years ago | 0 comments

I booked a place in Prague for a month but, 10 days in, Iโ€™ve had to get out of there. The ownerโ€™s wife abused me for the second time today so Iโ€™ve booked into a hotel.

I am a bit reluctant to use Airbnb to find another place because this one had glowing reviews! I really need something in the next day or two for 2 or 2 1/2 weeks. If anyone knows of anywhere or even has Airbnb recommendations, Iโ€™d be grateful. I would be looking at under $50 a night ideally.
