Just curious. What percentage of men vs women are on here.

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, where’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 they’re nonetheless insightful and no matter how much we hate them, we find ourselves asking others.
So let’s bring the dreaded backpacker questionnaire to NomadForum and introduce ourselves shall we?
No need to answer them all if you don’t want to
But the more you share… The merrier!
Any suggestions for seamlessly receiving SMS Verifications from US financial institutions and other sites while traveling internationally continuously? Won’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 won’t have a US mobile account.
Unless I’m missing something, which is very possible, this appears to be the single most complex issue I’ve encountered in my preparations, and one that no one addresses. I would greatly appreciate any possible solution that works 100% of the time. Can’t afford surprises in this regard. Many Thanks! Jack.
We are hoping to travel later this year and we will be working remotely - how do you ensure you get good WiFi in places such as in India where the signal isn't always great? Do you have any tips on where to go/ what equipment you have to get?
We are hoping to become nomads soon and have booked an AirBnB in September in Goa for our first destination. We are considering what would be the best option for accommodation after that. We are trying to decide between co-living spaces, hostels, or Airbnbs.
What are your experiences of accommodation in terms of the following: reliable wifi, social aspect, pricing, cleanliness, cooking facilities?
I'm a dual citizen of America and France with my resident based in the America. Can I travel to the EU using my French passport?
We are going travelling but we won't know anyone out there, what's your best advice for meeting people and socialising abroad? We've thought about the obvious things like Meetup etc, is there anything else you can suggest from your experience?
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.
I've heard travel to CO from USA is blocked until September. Any news on this and may this change anytime soon?
Hi, I’ve seen that Nomad List offers different options that could work for connecting with other nomads that are in the same place as me (forum, Slack, user maps, matches and maybe even more options I haven’t seen), but I’m not sure what is the best/recommended way to use all these options.
Should I use all of them? Start with a message in the forum and/or Slack?
Sending private messages to a lot of people feels a little bit “aggressive”. And matches are not based on current location if I understood it correctly.
By the way, I just arrived at Budapest
I have been interested in traveling to the balkans for a while, and the cities I’ve been delving most into are Ljubljana, Zagreb, Split, and Sarajevo (also Prague and Budapest). I’m interested in hearing about these places from anyone who has travelled there, especially to multiple of the cities, or to any other place in the region.
In particular, I’m interested in pros and cons of the cities vis-a-vis each other, and interested in tidbits about the vibe of the cities, the culture of the people, and any other first-hand things that are hard to pick up by reading (I already know the sizes of the cities, that they each have beautiful architecture, that Split has the beach, etc. ). How youthful do the cities feel? How walkable are they? How friendly are the locals? How likely would a 26 year old digital nomad be to meet his bride there ;)? What are the biggest unique things that stand out about each place?
I’ve chatted to a few of you on the threads these past few days, and now I want to meet you all!
How about next Wednesday 23rd Sept? I’m happy to arrange it and was thinking To Je To would be a good place. Let me know if another date would be better.
Who’s in? If we can get more than 10 I might be able to make it an official Nomad List meet up.
I am looking for a co-working space in Split, Crotia. There used to a couple of places listed on nomadlist.io but since the recent update they are not there anymore. Does somebody have a place they can recommend me ? I am staying there for 1 month (august).
We plan on staying in Split, Croatia from Aug - Oct or Sep - Nov. My budget is around $600 (around 500 euros) for a 2-bedroom appartment. Is that realistic and are the prices on nomadlist accurate?
I started my search on njuskalo.hr and broker.hr. Got one response so far and the guy told me appartment rates start at 1000eur. In August he said it would ‘not be possible’ to find appartments in my price range because of the tourism.
I also looked at Airbnb. Some nice single room appartments there at 500euros but no 2 bedroom appartments.
Anyone who can point me in the right direction or can refer me to someone? Would be much appreciated!
I’m waiting for 4 more replies, so will update the thread when I get more info.
