I am going DN in about 4 months and I am really excited to have a more flexible schedule to do meal prepping for my husband and I, spending more time at the gym, and really focusing on losing weight I’ve accumulated at my sedentary job over the last few years.
Has anyone else had an experience like this, due to your newfound flexibility?

During 2019 I was living in Paris and really wondering what I was doing there as my job doesn’t require me to be physically in Paris, I was working with teams in India and San Francisco. I don’t really need to be close to my friends or be in a place that I know but I need my computer setup to be efficient, and my computer setup is a big issue, as I have three 24 inches monitors an external GPU and an ergonomic keyboard.

I’m willing to put out $200 a month for a desk and reliable unlimited broadband (ethernet or wifi is fine). I’m also willing to work from a resort, airbnb, or hotel that I’m staying at, but the internet in those seems hit or miss, so it’s hard to blindly trust they’ll be fast/reliable.
How do I find the best not-free wifi before I arrive in a city?

I’ve been curious about nomadding for awhile and listened to some people’s stories, etc. Well my life went to hell. My gf of 6 years and I split off, my family and I don’t talk much anymore, I have no friends, and I’m miserable at my job. I’m thinking, “screw it. Screw trying to make a life for myself here in a city I don’t even like. I’m just gonna be a lone wolf, fuck off and leave all of my problems in the rear view and start over”

People who work solo in coffee shops, do you worry about getting your computers stolen?

I think the world has a way of providing for those who allow themselves the opportunity to stumble along instead of constantly planning. At least the last few years have seemed that way to me.

Ive solo travelled on a few multi-month trips before, but this is my first time working at the same time.
And im finding myself having to adjust my expectations and energy much differently. On my previous trips, i would make friends, hang out, go out, and then rest whenever my body called for it.
But as a DN, Im working around a set schedule with the necessity for energy management. I realize that I have to say no to new people i connect with and miss some fun events that might be happening.

What are y’alls thoughts? Why has it gotten a negative or annoying connotation lately?

What proportion of your monthly income do you guys think is sensible to spend on accommodation?
In the real world people say about 25 percent is ideal. What about in the DN world?

As I approach twelve months on the road doing the DN thing, I find myself wondering how I will know it is time to settle on a single location and stay there. I’m not there yet, it may be some time before I am truly ‘over’ the DN thing, but I thought I might ask those of you who have done it and quit:
How or when did you know it was time?

A friend last year told me about this house sitting website which sounded too good to be true. For $80 a year you can house sit as many times as you like all over the world!

Something you didn’t see coming?
Something that might help someone else thinking about nomading for the first time or struggling with acquiring clients?
Or something else totally?

In an ideal world I would have my family, friends, significant other, and a good job all in the same place. If this scenario existed I don’t think I would be drawn to DN.

The city’s $10,000 incentive to relocate has captivated remote workers, but the program to plug them into their new community is making them stay.

This is my last official week as a DN. I lasted 2.5 years.
I start a new job in November that is not remote friendly.
I’m excited and terrified about the drastic lifestyle change I’m about to have. For 6 years, I’ve been working as a remote employee. The past 2.5, I’ve been a digital nomad. I’ll miss so many things about this lifestyle … So why in the world am I throwing all of this away?

So a couple weeks ago, we had a pretty ridiculous fiasco with Airbnb, in which they claimed that “A fan legally constitutes an air conditioner”.

Are you planning on traveling until you find somewhere you want to live forever, or will you eventually return to your home country?
Are you investing money while you travel (In your home country or elsewhere)?
I’m about to start being nomadic, so I’m interested in reading about any long-term plans that current nomads have.
