DIGITAL NOMAD

People are moving more now that many bosses allow you to work from anywhere, provided you have reliable Wi-Fi and can be online during business hours. You don’t have to stay in high-priced areas when you can travel to cheaper locations around the globe.

Nomadic Matt has a completely remote team. My team includes members from the USA, Australia, and Sweden. Most of them spend at most a few weeks on the road. After all, we are nomads.

You may be wondering where the best place to work is if you have the freedom to travel. Here are five things to consider before you choose a destination.

Wi-Fi connectivity you’re working online, reliable Wi-Fi is vital. It is not worth wasting your time trying to find Wi-Fi. For comments about Wi-Fi, I always read reviews. If in doubt, contact the Airbnb host/hostel/hotel and ask about their internet speeds. I don’t think slow Wi-Fi is any better than slow Wi-Fi is frustrating! You can also Google the destination you are interested in — if they offer a lot of coworking space, they will likely have reliable Wi-Fi.

Living costs

You must ensure that the cost of living is within your means if you plan to stay somewhere for several months. Although I think it would be great to work in a city like Reykjavik, Iceland’s high cost of living will likely consume a significant portion of your company’s revenues. As a digital nomad and traveler, your biggest expenses will be accommodation, food, and transport. You must ensure that the places you choose to stay are financially feasible.

Community

Solo travel can be an incredible experience but can also become lonely. A community is essential if you plan to spend months in one place. You can use platforms such as Meetup.com and coworking spaces to connect with like-minded individuals. A community can enrich your experience and make adjusting to your new life easier. You will also be able to network with remote workers and creators, as well as receive insider tips from travelers and locals. This should help you get away from the computer now and again.

Activities

Burnout is inevitable when you work too hard and don’t have enough fun. This lesson has been learned. It’s not worth traveling halfway around the globe to look at your computer daily. You should be able to enjoy the area you are staying in. You’ll need to choose a base with many things to do and see. You’ll find museums, nature trails and extreme sports at your destination. That will help you develop a better (and healthier) work/life balance. 

Transportation hub

It sounds great to work from the beach on a remote tropical island. But if you have the financial means to fly expensively every time you travel or return home to see family, you will soon break the bank.
