I came across this amazing infographic the other day and just had to show it with you. It was made by oDesk who has created an amazing platform for freelancers to find work that they can do from wherever in this world.
Take your time to read through the findings. The data is from a survey where they asked 3,193 freelancers some questions. Among the people asked, 1,958 were Millennials (people between the age 19 and 30).
I wouldn’t call the findings shocking, but it definitely sounds like we’ll see much more people embracing the digital nomade lifestyle in the years to come! How exciting is that!? (more…)
As you know we’re in Playa del Carmen in Mexico right now. We have rented a space for one month here and we already thinking about staying for one more month – since Playa del Carmen is just a perfect place.
One of the questions we get asked the most, is how we can afford our lifestyle of constant travelling – and in this post we’ll show you just how we’re drastically cutting the number 1 expense while travelling: accommodation.
It might seem glamorous when you look at our photos of the beach. The Caribbean Sea is beyond gorgeous, but we are definitely not living as kings and queens here. So we thought we’d show you where we live for this month. (more…)
It’s crazy how time flies. It feels like just yesterday we were running around trying to get all our crap to fit on our Velorbis bikes, before setting off on our amazing bike trip around Europe.
Still, it seems far away. It’s a weird feeling, but because we’ve had so many adventures these past 6 months, the first one seems extremely far away.
But it has been 6 months. Half a year. And we’re still loving this lifestyle. On December 25th it was exactly 6 months ago we started living as digital nomads. It has been tough, fun, inspiring and challenging. We’re still learning and making lots of mistakes. But we’re getting better. (more…)
We were sitting at a Starbucks in Amsterdam; Jonas was working for a client while I was preparing a post on Berlin. I took a zip of my latte and looked around: not too many people, nice atmosphere and a perfect place to work.
I was actually enjoying my new lifestyle as a digital nomad.
I took an other zip of my latte. Jonas had just finished his second coffee. And that was when the starbucks lady decided to try and snatch away his empty cup (you can get refills if you keep the cup).
– “No, I’ll keep that. I might get a refill later” Jonas said, trying to take back his cup.
– “Yeah, but are you going to buy something later?” the Starbucks lady asked. Still trying to take his cup.
– “Yes, I might buy something later” Jonas answered while the Starbucks lady finally let go of the cup.
– “You should. You should buy something to support our store” She fired back, leaving us both speachless. (more…)
