Low cost + Nomad community in Europe?


by @joaoalbertofn | 3yr  | 8 comments

Hi Guys! Iโ€™m planing to kick start my Nomad Life style in July, and Iโ€™m researching cities in Europe that can provide three things:

  1. Low cost (Iโ€™m earning money in Brazilian Real, not Dollars). Especially regarding rent.
  2. Some kind of Digital Nomad community and Co-working spaces.
  3. Security. Low criminality.

All other characteristics (Weather, english speaking), are not as important as the ones above.
=D

Thank You so much for so many replies guys!

Malta, Spain and Italy seems very interesting.
Iโ€™ll defiantly have a check on then.

This will help me a lot!

Iโ€™d say give malta a look. Digital nomad community isnโ€™t quite here yet unless, but itโ€™s very safe, rentโ€™s relatively cheap and sunny with lots of activities.
In terms of rent you could probably find something on airbnb for 20-30Eur a night, just book early as it gets busy. Outside of the central touristy areas will be even less then that.
Planning on opening some office space/co-working space here soon, so if itโ€™s open by July iโ€™ll hock you up with free membership and youโ€™re welcome to use it all you want

Trowing in a couple of options:
Bulgaria:
Sofia โ€“ coworking spaces, there are nomads during the warm months. It is really safe. Learned from a travelling friend โ€“ use homeaway instead of airbnb for longer term flats, he said it is cheaper.
Plovdiv โ€“ even cheaper rent, there are a few folks based there, dont know what the coworking situation is at the moment, there was one new space and some problems with it.
Maybe also worth checking:
Belgrade, Serbia;
Kiev, Ukraine;
Estonia.

I donโ€™t know about the community piece, but for the budget thing, I can tell you the most affordable places Iโ€™ve based in almost 5 years of hopping around Europe have been:

:: Croatia (Split)

:: Slovenia (Kobarid and Ljubljana, though Iโ€™m guessing you could live very cheaply in lots of places)

:: Spain (Toledo was the cheapest of my Spain trips - the south was still affordable, but more expensive than I expected)

:: Belgium (Ghent is artsy and amazing and full of interesting people and living there was incredibly affordable)

:: Italy (main cities can be expensive apartment-wise, but smaller cities and towns, especially in the south, can be very affordable)

Weโ€™ve also just booked the summer in Bosnia and I was delighted by the prices there. Weโ€™ve rented a three bedroom for what weโ€™d normally pay for one.

As a woman traveling solo during most of those trips, every single one of the places above felt very safe to me. Obviously itโ€™s always good to research the neighborhood youโ€™re staying in, but in general Europe is a very very safe place to be.

Here are some of my real budgets. Keep in mind that Iโ€™m a middle-of-the-road traveler, so you could definitely do cheaper! http://gigigriffis.com/category/budgeting-saving/

I found that the resorts in Murcia Spain that are undersold since the housing crisis are good places to start. The co-working spaces are not really here, but it fits the other two criteria. Our #1 criteria is high speed reliable internet, then price, then location/security. I travel with my community (family of 5) so thatโ€™s less important for us.

The best weโ€™ve found so far: For ~350 euro/mo in the low season, you can live in a furnished 3 bedroom apartment, with access to pools, golf course, golf club/restaurant/bar, restaurants, etc, everything included except electric costs. 10mbps/2mpbs wireless internet, UK satellite tv, water, and towels/linens, all included. Itโ€™s a fairly good deal if you are self sufficient and donโ€™t need to go to a co-working space to GTD (get things done). Or you can get a two bedroom for ~300/mo. and turn one room into an office if you need an official desk area, or get the 3 bedroom and place two desks in one room, and get a roommate to split the rent. :slight_smile:

We found many of these units on Air B&B, but if you google you can find them directly and avoid the booking fee. Some resorts are more deserted than others, but still worth taking a look if you like some relax at home, and only 30 minutes to Murcia, and 15 to the beach.

The Polaris World resorts didnโ€™t fare well during the housing crisis:
Hacienda del Alamo Golf Resort
Las Lomas
Terrazas de la Torre Golf Resort
Condado de Alhama
Mar Menor Golf Resort

Some better than others, but if you can swing a car, the remote-ness of them makes a great home base, while you explore surrounding areas on the cheap. :wink: boa sorte.

Any Ph.D students dissertating while a digital nomad?

Does international health insurance for digital nomads exist?

 

by @al_steffen | 3mo 3 months ago | 59 comments

Hey Nomads!

Iโ€™m looking for an international health insurance (no travel insurance) for my nomadic life. It should cover the basic services and at least be accepted in the EU (itโ€™s ok if itโ€™s not accepted in the US as Iโ€™m aware they rarely are). Nice to have: enter into a contract online. Anyone got a good experience or a recommendation?

Thanks in advance!

I dream of being a digital nomad? How do I do it?


by @programmingmark | 5mo 4 months ago | 2 comments

Hello digital nomad!

I dream of being an independent digital nomad. But it feels very elusive & unattainable with my success rate. In full disclosure, whilst I have dreamed about making money online since high school; I have not earned a single cent making money online. $0, nada, zilch!! On the contrary, I have spent a lot of time & money on books, podcasts. Even though I have spent a lot of time reading/listening to others, I do not have anything to show for it!

I have made attempts in the past to start an online business, but these fizzle out quite quickly when I do not see traction especially when the goal I have set myself is too high.

Instead of reaching for the ultimate nomadic lifestyle goal, I want to start much smaller. Really small! I am simply looking to make $50 profit per month from a new online business. Thatโ€™s it.

I need some advice from you please!

  • Is $50 profit too low? How long did it take you to earn $50 profit per month?

  • What is a good way of achieving this goal?

Thanks

How to ship bikes from US to Europe?


by @ld | 5mo 4 months ago | 3 comments

Hello,
Iโ€™m preparing to travel again to Europe, but this time I want to bring our bikes. 2 road bikes. Iโ€™ll be traveling from USA to the Milan or Rome airport.

Iโ€™d appreciate hearing your thoughts, experience and tips on traveling with a bike. I plan on being fairly stationary with our location and staying in one spot for 2-3 months, then (hopefully train) to another spot for 3 months, etc. So itโ€™s the initial international flight Iโ€™m most concerned about. But realistically, I think a regional flight will be inevitable with the bikes, too.

I know a bike box will be huge and we will have to break down the bike, thankfully our bikes are fairly light weight. Iโ€™m expecting it to be a huge painโ€ฆbut I think the reward of having a good bike to roam around with will be invaluable. Especially since we will be staying in rural areas and donโ€™t want to rent a car.

General range of cost?

Anyone bring their bike and glad they did? โ€ฆWish they didnโ€™t?.. :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks!

How do digital nomads pay tax?


by @rodriigovieira | 5mo 5 months ago | 19 comments

Hello everyone! Iโ€™m new here and probably this is a very newbie question, but it doesnโ€™t leave my head.

How do you, nomads, pay your taxes? I mean, if youโ€™re constantly traveling, how are you going to pay taxes for a certain country if you are going to stay there a short period of time?
Or do you return to your โ€œoriginal countryโ€ and then pay them?

By the way, this forum has very nice cool formatting features! :smile:

My first time nomad-ing... Spain or Portugal?


in Portugal by @jasraj | 5mo 5 months ago | 6 comments

Hey everyone,

Iโ€™m a freelance + nomad newbie, off for my 1st proper trip in May. Iโ€™m wanting to spend a month somewhere and go from there.

I just came back from Slovenia/Ljubljana and loved it there (just a week). I donโ€™t mind โ€œsleepierโ€ places par-say, as long as theyโ€™re close to a beach or nature of some kind. In fact, I kinda like places less-busy and a bit smaller/cosier.

Iโ€™m been swaying towards Porto, but have been impressed by the rave reviews Iโ€™ve seen for Valencia.

-> Have you every nomad-ed in a Spanish/Portuguese city? Iโ€™d love to know where and what you liked/disliked :slight_smile:

Thanks! :slight_smile:

Anyone know an accountant for Canadian nomads/expats?


by @noam_lightstone | 6mo 5 months ago | 16 comments

Hey guys, this was my first year as a Canadian nomad.

As far as I know of, Canadians donโ€™t pay taxes if they do not live in the country for 6 months.

But Iโ€™d like to talk to an accountant or someone who does Canadian taxes specifically for expats and nomads to get clear on the rules and for help on my return coming up.

Does anyone know someone who specializes in Canada who can help? Iโ€™ve seen plenty of US recommendations but none for us canucks.

Best place for Digital Nomad in Latin America?


by @rose_davis | 7mo 7 months ago | 7 comments

Hi!

I am planning to move to Latin America for 3-4 months (Oct-January). Iโ€™ve narrowed down 6 different places that I want to visit before committing to settling down, but Iโ€™d love to get some community input.

Here are the cities Iโ€™m considering:

  • Quito, Ecuador
  • Cuenca, Ecuador
  • Medellin, Columbia
  • Cartagena, Columbia
  • Antigua, Guatemala
  • San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala

The most important things Iโ€™m looking for:

  • Fast/easily accessible internet
  • Easy to meet other nomads/make friends in general
  • Safe for women
  • Some sort of spiritual community (Iโ€™m also a yoga teacher)
  • Easily walkable city

Anyone have any experience with these places and can give some insight? Iโ€™m also completely open to other recommendations.

Thanks!
Rose

How do we solve housing for digital nomads?

 

by @levelsio | 7mo 7 months ago | 61 comments

Thereโ€™s been a lot of discussion on this recently.

Nomads usually stay in hostels, hotels and short-term apartments. But itโ€™s all not very optimal.

Iโ€™ve heard people suggest getting funding and building a network of houses you can stay at for a subscription price (e.g. Bruno Haid is working on that).

I donโ€™t want do physical stuff, so Iโ€™m thinking of building a platform around making housing better for nomads.

What are the housing problems nomads face? And how can we solve them with products/services?

App/tool/service for nomads to bring things from another country?


by @brmolin | 9mo 8 months ago | 4 comments

I vaguely remember hearing about such a service before, but Iโ€™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 thereโ€™s a big risk of it getting โ€œlost in the mailโ€ if I ship something expensive like that to Thailand.

Iโ€™m wondering if thereโ€™s a service or community, where I can find a nomad whoโ€™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 canโ€™t remember the name of it. Any help would be appreciated!

Are there any nomads from India?

 

in India by @ankitdas123 | 9mo 8 months ago | 56 comments

I have seen a lot of posts from different people across the world, but not even a single post from someone in India, who has been a nomad, either living within the country or traveling to another one.

Would definitely love to hear stories from such people. We are a couple traveling as social nomads who are trying to bridge the gap between the rural and urban societies in India. We have started out very humble and do not have much resources, so looking out for help from the community.

How is Bari, Italy for digital nomads?

Greetings!
Does anyone have experience in Bari, Italy please? We are thinking of going from Dubrovnik, Croatia to Bari by boat in mid-March. Has anyone taken a boat across? Is it nice or can it be choppy? (We are trying to avoid planes, to reduce our carbon footprint, so adding more surface travel.) Also, any info you might be able to offer about Bari and the surrounds? Next step will likely be trains up Italy as the Spring progresses.
