Essentials Digital Nomad Needs to Pack

5 Essentials Every Digital Nomad Needs to Pack

The world as we know it is changing. Many millennials and younger generations are starting to stray away from the old-fashioned 9-to-5 way of thinking. We don’t just want to pay the bills, we want to enjoy life, explore new things, and work according to our own schedules. That’s why it’s never been more popular to be a digital nomad.

A digital nomad is someone who relies on technology to help them continue working as they travel around the world. The idea is so popular that some experts predict approximately 1 billion people will be working this way by 2035.

It’s easy to see why the digital nomad lifestyle is so popular. After all, there are few things better than being able to decide exactly how and when you work each day. For instance – you could set up your computer and go to work somewhere – as long as you have a Wi-Fi connection. Of course, there’s more to being a digital nomad than just grabbing your laptop and taking your next flight. You’re going to need a few essential items on hand to make sure you’re ready to deal with anything. Read More

working from the beach

I’m a strange digital nomad, I don’t like to work from the beach

Did I disappoint you?

I’m sorry.

Let me explain.

Working directly from the beach sucks. In tropical countries (which are so popular for picturing people while working from beach beds) is often too hot, sunny, windy, not comfortable and annoying sand gets directly into your equipment. I’m not even talking about humidity or distracting people in bikinis and boardshorts running around!

How do I know it?

I’ve been there. I’ve done that.

I damaged my fancy MacBook Air because I was playing it cool… right after I was detached from the typical office life while creating my beach life.

Don’t get me wrong. Beach life is amazing 😎

But… Let me give you an advice… don’t live in a dream and stop focusing on “working from the beach”.

Find a suitable workspace, a coworking, quite coffee house or your own room and get to work. Be productive and save your equipment and Instagram feed from bullshit. You will have more time and money for getting crazy on the actual beach… whatever that means to you. And if that means posting beach offices, fair enough, I just wanted to throw my 2 cents into this topic.

Last but not least, if you want to have a good laugh insert “working from the beach” into your Google image search
