Where should I go next? I'm a 25-year old Australian girl working remotely


in Australia by @angsmith | 5yr  | 19 comments

Iโ€™m a 25 year old Australian girl, newly single, working remotely for a SF startup. Iโ€™m looking for a location to settle for the next 6 months, starting in May. All countries are on the table (although stable wifi is required).

Iโ€™d love to be by a beach & somewhere that has a relatively bustling vibe, restaurants etc. Bonus points for surf or a gym.

Logistically, I have a visa to be able to stay in the Schengen zone for 4 years so Europe is doable. I guess Iโ€™m concerned about it being high season?

Iโ€™d love to hear any suggestions.

Hi Angela. I would suggest you Thailand too. Itโ€™s a place where you can now only work, you can combine work and leisure here. Many tourists, beach, pleasant atmosphere. Itโ€™s amazing place. I found there inspiration for writing my research paper on advanced databases when I was studying, so I guess Thailand will help you to achieve your goals.

Hi,
Iยดm a 25 year old girl currently working & living in Koh Lanta, Southern Thailand. I would say its the perfect spot for female solo travelers, as its safe, easy accessible and well developed. Ive been here now for about three weeks and staying at least five more!

The party scene is not the most crazy, but there are some really nice beach bars with good vibe and every night thereยดs a party at a different location around the island. There are also plenty of good restaurants serving both Thai and western food!

There are 9 beaches around the island, and its easy to rent a scooter to get around and discover the island. When it comes to surfing I have heard there are sometimes waves in Klong Dao Beach in the green season but there are no surf shops around- on the other hand thereยดs a gym and some very good yoga studios.

Most nationalities can apply for a 90 day tourist visa at the Thai embassy before departure. It shouldnโ€™t be a problem to get it extended.

I think the best thing with Koh Lanta right now is that the tourist scene is slowly changing, and you can get some great bargains when it comes to accommodation (around 200 USD a month or even less is possible!)

The island also have a coworking space :slight_smile:

Hong Kong is a fantastic place to live if you can afford it. The nightlife is great, the food scene is great, the infrastructure is great, there are loads of great beaches, some great hiking, English is widely spoken and itโ€™s easy to stay there for half of year.

I agree with the Hong Kong suggestion, unfortunately itโ€™s rather expensive though, even compared to many places in Europe. But itโ€™s truly an awesome city because it has everything at once, a bustling city with good infrastructure and as soon as you leave the city there are a lot of pretty natural areas with beaches and mountainous islands.

If youโ€™re not looking to go too far I would suggest heading north of SF up to the Pacific Northwest. Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver are all pretty close to each other and you should be able to hop between them freely.

While its cheaper than SF its still pretty expensive. Great places for hiking and camping. Surfing is a bit lacking though. Wifi not a problem.

Iโ€™d actually advise against Morocco. As a woman traveling alone, itโ€™s a very different experience there than the guys on here have. I didnโ€™t feel unsafe, but I did absolutely feel like a second-class citizen and I most definitely was harassed more than usual.

Thailand is also very popular destination, Koh Samui island is probably best fir for your requirements. Itโ€™s a touristy destination, so a lot of digital nomads and everyone else. But I didnโ€™t find any co-working spaces thereโ€ฆ only Son Of Beach which is basically just a coffee shop and not really a co-working space.

Koh Lanta is also something you should look out for, it looks like digital nomads really love it. And they have a coworking space if you get bored working alone (Iโ€™m only planning on going, never been before)

Have a look at Taghazout in Morocco. There is already a small startup community working remotely, amazing surf spots, really cheap cost of living and a super easy air connexion to Europe from Agadir - low cost. Your tourist visa (free) allows you to stay up to 3 months, but you can apply for an expat one or just fly and back to Europe.

In Europe, if youโ€™re looking for surfing and a lively area, Biarritz, France was a wonderful and surprising find. I was there in November and it was still pretty lively and had good weather, plus you have Basque culture, which is interesting, and good food. I also found Split, Croatia really lively (though I donโ€™t think there is surfing) with a young population and lots of hip bars. Itโ€™s not Schengen, though, so Iโ€™m not sure youโ€™d be able to stay beyond the 3 months their normal visa offers.

Where do I get good legal advice/support to have a long-term stay?

 

in Lisbon, Portugal by @mzorrilla | 2d 2 days ago | 0 comments

Hello, everyone!

My idea is to stay as low as 6 months and as long as a year (maybe, who knows) over Lisbon after doing some analysis from many cities in Europe.

I'm an Argentinian and Chilean (both nationalities) so... no Euro-pass for me (getting my Italian nationality could take 2 years easily). I'm also a remote worker and I have a really good income (I work for a Silicon Valley company) so I can show more than enough resources to stay in the country.

Everything I see online doesn't inspire me much confidence (most sites looks a bit scammy) and this is not a "vacation stay"... I want to be clear my head far away from Argentina right now. If someone has a good website, recommendations, etc I will super appreciate.

Thanks in advance!

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


in Croatia by @ld | 11d 11 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 | 16d 15 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 | 18d 17 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.

Anybody bring their car to Mexico instead of flying?

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 | 22d 22 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 | 27d 26 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.

Best place in South East Asia to live for 6+ months per year


in Indonesia by @miklaskroager | 1mo 1 month ago | 1 comment

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.

Anyone wants to learn to sail in the Mediterranean? (Sep or Oct)


by @viktor | 1mo 1 month ago | 1 comment

I'm thinking about taking a sailing (yachting) course in the Mediterranean Sea this coming September or October. Thus far from my research, it seems that most courses are held in locations with not many digital nomads. My thinking is that it would be more fun to go to a place with like-minded people. Therefore, I'm wondering if anyone else is interested in taking a sailing course in the Mediterranean this fall? If not, do you know a location that offers good sailing courses, where there is also many digital nomads / nomad infrastructure?
