With more companies allowing their employees to work remotely part-time or full-time, and a steady rise in full-time freelancing—many adults are considering living as a digital nomad. Even if they travel part-time, it is easier than ever to really immerse yourself in a new culture without officially being on vacation.
Airbnb Makes It Easier Than Ever
One of the challenges of living as a digital nomad, is finding affordable accommodations. Depending on the country you live in, hostels can be an excellent choice—but they may not meet all of your needs. Airbnb is the perfect alternative. You can easily find affordable short and long-term housing almost anywhere in the world.
No More Rushed Vacations
Even if you maintain a home base, leveraging technology to work from anywhere in the world makes it possible for you to take your time when you travel. Stay for several months or weeks, and see both the local hot spots—and the tourist locations.
The Downsides Of Living As A Digital Nomad
There are downsides of living as a digital nomad. You may still need to make yourself available in a drastically different time zone. You will really have to put yourself out there so that you don’t spend all of your time alone. An excellent way to meet people while traveling is to spend part of your time working in coworking spaces.
There are many ways to live and work, including a nomadic yet connected lifestyle.
