The impression i get is that DN seem to prefer large backpacks, why is that? For my needs, I prefer a combo: rolling luggage (carry on), laptop bag on top, and small-ish personal bag/backpack.

On the last day of last month (May 31st, 2015), I boarded a one-way flight out of Toronto with two backpacks and zero intention of returning. Originally I wrote this piece to share with friends who were wondering how and why am I leaving, and where the hell I am going. However I’ve decided to make this public because it’s nice to be honest on the internet. So without further ado, here are the eight steps to packing up your life.

Beyond Airbnb, I’m wondering how people find places to stay for longer period of time. Like 1-3 months in a new city. I find Airbnb isn’t always available for that long (and it’s probably more expensive than other options). Not interested in staying in hostels - so what are the other options out there?

Last year on NODESK, I featured 448 articles on digital nomads and remote work, as well as the occasional offbeat piece. These were the favourites as measured by a combination of what the NODESK audience most enjoyed reading and sharing, and which stories I found most interesting.

So here’s my tip… rather than trying to find low-skilled digital nomad jobs that have high supply and low demand, instead focus on utilizing your strengths to build skills that would allow you to create high demand for yourself.

Why? Constant movement wears you out and makes it hard to maintain good connections with other people. The solution seems simple then - just go back “home”, right? Well, if you’ve been gone for the best part of 5 years home can feel like not home anymore.

Two years ago I was able to break the chains with the office. I became a fully remote worker and, instead of becoming a trendy digital nomad, I used my brand new flexibility to work from home. For almost two years I had been wondering if it really made sense to travel while doing a good engineering job. This is the story of my first experience working remotely from Thailand. Why and how I planned my trip and some learnings for the next time.

We Roam’s broken promises about a new life of remote work are an object lesson in the darker side of startup turnover.

Hi, I’m a long time lurker on this page and I just have a few questions that I need some help answering: What does it mean to be a digital nomad? What does a normal work week usually look like? What are some Pros/Cons of being a digital nomad? What interested you/ made you want to take on this occupation? What are some tips you would tell someone wanting to be a digital nomad in the future?

Do you all pretend to be living a boring life to avoid this perception, or the envy of office-bound coworkers?

In the last year, I’ve never spent more than a few weeks in the same city as someone I’ve dated. What it’s like to date as a digital nomad.

For me the biggest inhibition to spending more time on the road is the money spent on monthly rent at home to have a place to store my crap.

Today one year ago I decided to get rid of my belongings and live out of a suitcase. It started as an experiment I didn’t expect to be doing for long. However after 365 days without a permanent home, I have no intentions on changing my current setup.

I’m getting DEEP eyerolls when I tell folks from home I’m burnt out on travel, especially those with kids. But everything being new and different is exhausting after 2 years. Money, costs, cabs, trains, language, eating times, friends, tipping, drinking, buying transit tickets, just getting lunch can be a real endeavor. Spending a lot of intellectual capacity on basic daily things.

I feel like that’s how some people react to it.
