Merry Christmas fellow nomads!


by @coffeeshopceo | 6yr  | 2 comments

Just a quick thread wishing everyone a merry Christmas!

What are you doing today?

Iโ€™m on the beach (Koh Lanta), so it doesnโ€™t feel very much like Christmas!!

  • Have you contacted your family today?
  • Do you miss being at home for Christmas or do you enjoy being away from the manic business

All the best! Enjoy your day whatever youโ€™re doing!

Damn bro! How long did that take?

Iโ€™ve never been a very Christmassy person, but I wouldโ€™ve gone back this year had I not been home for a birthday in October/November.

It was cold enough then too!

Hey Adam! I just flew back from Bali via Bangkok via Dubai via Amsterdam to my parentsโ€™ place.

I always try to be with family and friends from home at Christmas, as itโ€™s a nice time to see them again, catch up and relax a bit.

Itโ€™s freezing here though! Aaaaaaa

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


in Croatia by @ld | 8d 8 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 | 13d 12 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 | 14d 14 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.

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


by @beloruchka | 19d 18 days ago | 6 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!

Anybody bring their car to Mexico instead of flying?


in Mexico by @digitaldiva | 19d 18 days ago | 1 comment

Iโ€™m curious whether anyone drove to Mexico instead of flying and used their car down there. Iโ€™ve heard bad stories of people driving down there but not sure I believe them. How safe is it to drive through rural areas, and to park in cities? It would be cool to have the car to explore while there.

Did you learn any Thai before staying in Chiang Mai?


in Chiang Mai, Thailand by @digitaldiva | 19d 19 days ago | 0 comments

Iโ€™m curious to know how many people learned some Thai before going there. Learning languages is a hobby of mine but Iโ€™m very put off by how complex the writing system is, and if I decide not to learn it Iโ€™ll probably cross Chiang Mai off my bucket list. I prefer to be at least conversational in a language before I do an extended stay in a country. Iโ€™m curious how people who learned no Thai did getting by. And Iโ€™m curious, from people who did learn some, if itโ€™s any easier than it seems? Thanks!

What age did you start out and went location independent?


by @raynesio | 22d 21 days ago | 11 comments

Eager to find out what age most start out as a DN? (Me)โ€ฆ 27 and just started out in the last 6 months or so. Not presently 100% location independent, probably more like 90% as still required to visit the office from time to time

How to get SMS verifications for banks while traveling?

 

by @jackgopack | 24d 23 days ago | 39 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.

Any nomads in Europe want to do a Nomad Christmas gathering somewhere?


by @wanderingdev | 4yr 3 years ago | 16 comments

Hi Nomads!

Like many, Iโ€™m not heading back to be with my family for the holidays but I was thinking it would be fun to maybe do a nomad family gathering. We could rent a cool house/apartment somewhere fun and do our own thing. I personally am available from 23-27 December, but people could arrive/leave sooner/later. I love to cook so Iโ€™d be up for doing a big christmas dinner.

If anyone is interested, or has suggestions on a good place to go, chime in! :smile:

Let's fix dating for digital nomads!

 

by @levelsio | 4yr 4 years ago | 22 comments

Letโ€™s say youโ€™re in Thailand (or any other remote place) and you want to find a significant other (SO). Itโ€™s hard because most dating apps are good for local hook ups, or for locals dating locals. If you are a somewhat perpetual traveler, itโ€™s hard to find anyone taking on a long-term relationship with you. Youโ€™ll date somebody, youโ€™ll move to the next place, and they wonโ€™t be able to come with you because they have their ties to a place. Usually.

I wanted to see if I could get all the people on Nomad List together, and experiment if we could figure out how to fix dating for travelers. So I build this mini app that looks similar to most dating apps. It has swiping left (dislike), swiping right (like) and you can in-app chat with the people you meet. Also no installs as itโ€™s just a website!

Itโ€™s calledโ€ฆNinder

It also ties into Nomad Trips, so itโ€™ll show your current location and in the future will match you based on previous and future trips! And even propose dates when you have cross over :slight_smile:

Let me know any bugs you find, and what you think I should add as features! Itโ€™s pretty bare now :slight_smile:

Where in Europe should I spend Christmas?


by @wanderingdev | 5yr 4 years ago | 3 comments

I have to be in Dusseldorf from 27 Dec-7 January so I have new years covered, but Iโ€™m looking for somewhere to spend Christmas. Since I wonโ€™t be visiting friends/family, Iโ€™d want somewhere that doesnโ€™t shut down for the holiday (like most of England) so I can still get a good meal on Christmas eve/day. Somewhere with outdoor markets, entertainment, hot mulled wine, etc. Thinking maybe Prague, Innsbruck, somewhere in Ireland? I donโ€™t know. Somewhere with a pretty old city center where I can sit and enjoy a drink and people watch in a pub while maybe meeting some locals kind of place.
