Where do you spend winter?

 

by @sebastian88 | 11mo  | 22 comments

Winter is comingโ€ฆ Brrrr. Iโ€™m in Europe at the moment.

Iโ€™ve spent winters in SE Asia, Thailand, south on the beaches, and North in Chiang Mai. I love Thailand. But also Iโ€™ve been to Vietnam, Bali, Laos, Camobodia, and Malaysia.

Down in South America I spent a winter around Playa Del Carmen.

Where are you going this winter?

I'm actually thinking of NOT going somewhere warm this Winter but instead spending it in some snowy ski/snowboard village, rent a cute Airbnb cabin with a fireplace and have cheese fondue. ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ‚๐ŸŒจ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ”

I surf, a lot and have a family, so we hunker down, for most of the year in Oahu. If anyone wants to spend thanksgiving through new years in Oahu, hit me up, I have a 3 bedroom solar powered house with hot tub 200 meters from the beach and I will be in NJ this holiday season, would love to rent it out to RESPONSIBLE professionals.

Iโ€™m in Buenos Aires now๐Ÿ˜€ i need to verify my stay in San Juan because, although it is all set up already, with the recent earthquakes I think it is good to call and confirm. Since they just had another 5.2 โ€œaftershockโ€, going to wait a week without earthquakes before calling

I have been doing SouthEast Asia and it works - is mainly dry and warm. I do need to find a June to October good place though - is so rainy and with Typhoons etc - is not fun where am at. So far only place I can see affordable and dry and warm is Vegas hahaha - which I can do as I have timeshare so gives me 3 months there. But ya - its hot - like 40 Celsius hot. Tried it last year - after 2 weeks said never again but never say never.

So Iโ€™m going there in a week until April I suppose.

Just VoA for 30 days in Airport then extend it for 30 more days with agency. You need to visit immigration office just once instead of 3 in that case.
Afterwards I do visa run and repeat the scheme.
You can apply for social visa (in any country except Indonesia) for 6 month, but it wonโ€™t allow you to left Indonesia and itโ€™s harder to apply for so I donโ€™t like it. Itโ€™s not a problem to fly out and back every 2 months for me.

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


in Croatia by @ld | 9d 9 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 | 14d 13 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 | 15d 15 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.

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.

Anybody bring their car to Mexico instead of flying?


in Mexico by @digitaldiva | 20d 19 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 | 20d 20 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!

How to get SMS verifications for banks while traveling?

 

by @jackgopack | 25d 24 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.

What's the best warm destinations in Europe in the winter?

 

by @jammingsloth | 1yr 1 year ago | 33 comments

Planning ahead for the winter. Iโ€™ll be in Spain in the Fall and want to go someplace warm for the winter in or near Europe, but not Schengen. Was first thinking Cape Town, but the internet is slow and it is very far. Was also thinking:
Israel - but airbnb listings are very pricey.
Morocco?
Turkey - maybe a little chilly.

Any other suggestions?

Where should I go in Japan in the winter?


in Japan by @zero | 5yr 4 years ago | 3 comments

Iโ€™d like to go to Japan for winter (on a 90 day tourist visa). Since I like winter sports, Iโ€™m thinking about staying somewhere like Nagano or Sapporo or even a ski town e.g. Hakuba but Iโ€™m a little worried about finding solid accommodation and a quiet place to work.

Any suggestions? Also if youโ€™ve used Airbnb in Japan while working Iโ€™d love to hear how it worked out for you.
