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


in Australia by @angsmith6yr  | 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.

You can only stay 3 months every 6 months with a Schengen Visa.

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.

Hi รngela. Fuerteventura, on the Canary Islands definitely fits in your desire list. Good waves, warm all year round, a growing expats community โ€ฆetc etc
Beyond that, it is probably one of the safest places I know for a girl traveling alone

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.

What features would you like to see on Nomad List?


by @levelsio4mo 3 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!

Any nomads in Arizona, US?


in Netherlands by @info1325mo 4 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 :)

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!

Anyone up to explore some city which is kinda virus safe?


in Bangkok, Thailand by @germanrobert6mo 5 months ago | 2 comments

Hello World!

I'm an experienced Digital Nomad and after being in Lockdown in Bangkok and Germany for one year I would like to team up with someone to visit a new place. Or just doing some exchange about what destinations would be interesting currently.

I take the virus seriously and still I think we can still be able to take our life in our own hands. So I'm aiming for cities/countries which are not in full lockdown, are not too complicated about immigration (I'm looking at you Thailand, your state quarantine costs like 1k USD and is basically a prison) and is also rather safe regarding the virus. I tend to stick for rather big cities and like culture. I'm not a beach or nature person. I'm pretty flexible about the money topic.

If you're American but live in Guatemala, do you still count as American for travel purposes?


in Guatemala by @chasindreams6mo 6 months ago | 0 comments

What I mean is, for example, since most of the EU has banned Americans, if I live in Guatemala and will be traveling FROM Guatemala to the EU, could I get in? Or does the ban count for all Americans regardless of where they live?

Are co-working spaces a good way to meet people in a new city?


by @donaldbough6mo 6 months ago | 1 comment

My fiancรฉe and I are most likely moving to NYC (maybe DC) in August, and as a technical startup co-founder I'd love to meet new people that are also into startups. Would joining a co-working space be worth the money to do this?

I work for a big tech company that has an office in NYC, but it's mainly sales so I wouldn't be able to meet others that are related to any of my 9-5 work or likely into tech.

If co-working spaces, post covid of course, aren't a good way to meet business starting people in a new city, what is?

I have two passports from different countries and am trying to understand where can I travel now. Is there a publicly available map of countries open for visitors by passport country that I can use to see what are my options? I was pretty sure such a thing should exist, but cannot easily find any.

Maybe at least there're maps for specific passports? Mine are Russian and American.

If there's no such thing, I'd be down to build one, let me know if interested to collaborate :)
