What do you use to work out on the road?


by @jbroomeresearch7yr  | 7 comments

Exercise was one of the toughest things for me in rural areas โ€“ and that took me completely by surprise! In cities it was easy to walk for miles. When I stayed on a farm I felt quite isolated and there were a couple of days where I felt like I was on an island. A beautiful, awesome, landlocked island, but yeah โ€“ the exercise thing. I started counting my steps :slight_smile:

Iโ€™m a big fan of working out at outdoor gyms in cities. Basically, anything that has a pullup bar, dip bars, monkey bars and something I can jump up on to do box jumps, etc. Also, carrying a jump rope is always a good idea as itโ€™s easy to pack.

Iโ€™ve been looking into starting Freeletics. Anybody out there use this?

A backpack that weighs too damn much and a habit of misreading public transit schedules.

If Iโ€™m going to be somewhere a while, I find a gym. I much prefer powerlifting to bodyweight stuff. When thatโ€™s not an option, I have a deck of cards that I use with an upper/lower split DOC workout I created. I used to carry a knock-off TRX system but it was too annoying.

FitStar is awesome. They build customized workouts catering to your ability (based off of a baseline test).

Travelling on the road has itโ€™s ups and downs, but more ups Iโ€™ve found :slight_smile:

Whilst consistency often takes a shot in the foot, variety makes it worth it. Each new city I go to I find new gyms to train at. Iโ€™ve actually found it to be a great way to make friends fast. Once youโ€™re in a community where you have common grounds with the locals (fitness) itโ€™s easy to meet people.

When Iโ€™m somewhere that I donโ€™t have a gym local, I focus on high intensity style exercise (sprints), running and bodyweight routines. I pack light so donโ€™t carry any gear with me.

What features would you like to see on Nomad List?


by @levelsio6mo 6 months ago | 3 comments

Hi everyone,

I would love to hear what you'd like me to build next on Nomad List, or any other product/feature feedback ideas you have.

It's been 6+ years now but I'm in this for the long term and with the boost remote work got last year it's even more exciting to work on Nomad List than ever.

Current roadmap is here: twitter.com/levelsio/status/1363204985488572417?s=20 and pbs.twimg.com/media/EusS9PKXEAUR8xp?format=jpg&name=4096x4096

The next products/features I have planned:

- ๐Ÿ›‚ Rebase: visa, residency and immigration services for remote workers

- ๐ŸŽ“Courses: learn the steps how to go remote and travel/relocate

- ๐Ÿ› Gov liaison: diplomacy services to the governments to help us lobby for nomads and for them to attract remote workers

Thanks a lot!

List of Visa/Residency Information in Table/Spreadsheet format?


by @innovatelife7mo 7 months ago | 2 comments

As part of signing up for this website I was hoping I would come across a list of Visa and/or Residency requirements by country ideally in a table format to assist with decision making. Does anybody recommend any other websites that might present the information in this format (or Google Spreadsheet)?

Most Walkable Neighborhood / City In The World ?


by @dannybooboo7mo 7 months ago | 1 comment

I love living in walkable areas of town. I can always find them. But now I'm wondering where in the world are the most walkable places? I'm imagining walk streets (no cars), zoning allowing both business and residential, parks or beaches ,etc.

Any nomads in Arizona, US?


in Netherlands by @info1328mo 7 months ago | 4 comments

Hi guys,

After the Netherlands, the Bay Area, Colorado and being on the van life for 8 months, I am now in Sedona, AZ with a few other digital nomads. We are sharing a home here and are wondering if there are more like minded people in the area.

We do a bunch of hikes and campouts in the northern of Arizona. If you would like to connect with us, please do so :)

Are there any tax issues I have to be aware of?


in Germany by @clara8mo 7 months ago | 0 comments

Hi everybody. I live and work in Germany and want to go to Canary Islands for 6 months to work from there. I'm going to keep my current job, just change the "home" in the home office part of things. Are there any tax issues I have to be aware of? I was reading about becoming a residence after 183 days, thus having to pay taxes there plus my employer having to register there. Does anybody know how it works exactly? Thanks a lot!

How do you work out and stay fit on the road?

 

by @christianbundy4yr 4 years ago | 30 comments

I worked out a few times a week back home, but havenโ€™t been able to figure out how to make it a part of my routine now that Iโ€™m living out of my backpack in hostels. Iโ€™ve always gone to gyms, but Iโ€™d be open to trying bodyweight exercises. I thought that I might be able to do bodyweight exercises in parks/etc, but the past few days in London have been wet and miserable and I canโ€™t find the motivation to go do push ups in wet grass. Any advice?

How do you network on the road?


by @justinbosco4yr 4 years ago | 7 comments

Hey everyone, my girlfriend and I have been nomading for about 8 months now and weโ€™ve had a total blast doing it, but something weโ€™ve both struggled with is how to stay in touch with personal/professional networks while abroad, especially since we donโ€™t speak the language in most places we live. When youโ€™re at home or in a single English-speaking city, you can attend one of those awful professionals groups and make 10 business connections in 10 minutes, but when youโ€™re moving around monthly, itโ€™s just harder to keep up personal and professional relationships, let alone build new ones. So, as friends who understand this wonderful but often lonely lifestyle, how do you keep your networks up while on the road?

The paradox of choice, how do you make decisions on the road?

 

by @sonja5yr 4 years ago | 23 comments

Hey all,

I recently spent 2.5 years as a DN (mostly Europe and SE Asia) but then went through a huge breakup (6 yr relationship) and decided to spend some time back home (Melbourne, AUS). Iโ€™m giving myself a year back here, just to โ€˜come downโ€™ from it all, reconnect with important people in my life, and lick my wounds a bit.

Can I just say, surprise surprise - itโ€™s HAAAARD! Being home is such a slap in the face, even though Iโ€™m earning more money than ever, my business is going great, and doing some other wonderful things/spending time with wonderful people. The breakup, coupled with a complete shift in my reality and routine has been almost too much to bare - I wouldnโ€™t recommend it! NOBODY at home understands the internal existential conflict Iโ€™m experiencing. Itโ€™s been 8 months and not getting any easier.

Hereโ€™s the thing: I know that I want to continue the DN lifestyle, and am very well-equipped to do so, but I canโ€™t stop thinking about why, how and when. Is it the right thing for me anymore? Should I set up a base here again properly, buy an apartment & all that jazz, and just do shorter trips?

This has probably been discussed multiple times, so apologies if Iโ€™m repeating. Here are my main concerns around going back to full time travel:

Being a DN with a long-term partner who was also working a bit seemed like the ultimate lifestyle for me. It was damn amazing. Now that Iโ€™m no longer in a relationship, and am a female nearing 30, I canโ€™t help but feel pressured by society to stay here and remain open to the possibility of eventually meeting someone again. If I want to have a family at any point, I kinda canโ€™t be running all over the world creating fleeting relationship after fleeting relationship and having to deal with the loneliness that inevitably hits when you make beautiful connections and then have to say goodbye over and over. I feel Iโ€™ve been โ€˜brokenโ€™ and donโ€™t have the emotional capacity to handle this anymore. At least last time, I had one solid thing that was always there - my partner.

On top of this, donโ€™t you think the DN thing is just way more purposeful and wonderful when you have someone to share it with? I feel like doing it alone will just remind me over and again of my loss. Perhaps though, as I create new memories, that will ease in time.

Also, because Iโ€™m so flustered and restless at the moment, I canโ€™t decide where I want to go next. Iโ€™m overwhelmed by all the places in the world I want to visit, and places I want to go back to. How do you cope with this overwhelm and making some decisions when youโ€™re alone? Was easy for me when I had someone to plan it out with.

And finally, am I being ridiculous? I know everyone says you should just do what you WANT to do in life, focus on yourself, do what makes you happy, and perhaps love will happen again at some point when youโ€™re ready. But you also donโ€™t get the things you want without a little bit of planning. Perhaps I should just stop thinking about my โ€˜body clockโ€™ and be ok with whatever happens. Easier said than done!

Your kind encouragement would be most appreciated.

How to sign legal documents on the road?


by @gawin6yr 5 years ago | 11 comments

It can be hard to get access to a good printer and scanner while moving, especially if you have to sign a lot of documents. Now, I could scan my signature and just copy paste a digital image it on the documents, but that doesnโ€™t feel secure and really easy to copy by others.

How do you sign legal documents while on the road?

Anyone have advice for running a service based business from the road?


by @nick_hurford7yr 6 years ago | 0 comments

Hi everyone,

Iโ€™ve been running a web design business for the last 3 years from my hometown in the UK. Iโ€™ll be leaving for Chiang Mai in June and will be travelling across South-East Asia for 6 months.

Wondering if anyone has experience running a service based business on the road? One of my concerns is almost all my clients want to have face-to-face meetings, especially initial meetings to see if we can work together.

Obviously Skype is an option but when Iโ€™ve suggested this in the past people would much rather meet face-to-face.

Another potential stumbling block is being available to answer phone calls, although there seem to be good value telephone answering services available.

My long term goal is to move away from this and focus on building products as it allows for greater flexibility and growth. However, I need to continue the web design business for the foreseeable future as I have no other income streams as of yet.

Does anyone have any advice for running a service based business on the road? . Any advice is much appreciated :slight_smile:

How do you make friends on the road?


by @fraserdeans7yr 6 years ago | 5 comments

Nomading can be a lonely lifestyle. Which is probably one of the biggest worries for people thinking about solo travel. However, nomading can also be a great opportunity for making new friends from different walks of life.

Where do you make new friends on the road? What kinds of places do you meet them? Any tips for finding like-minded folk?
