Life As A Digital Nomad


I am a vlogger and digital nomad and my goal is to overdose in travel. I started my lifestyle of ‘digital nomadism’ about two years ago. As opposed to what a lot of people do, I didn’t just save money and quit my job. For me, it was a slow process in which I gradually transitioned from having a regular full time corporate job to being totally location independent.

There’s a few myths surrounding digital nomadism and what being a full-time traveler really entails. So, I’ll clear some up, from my own perspective and from things I’ve had asked.

1. I don’t spend 24/7 in hotels. I pick a place, rent an apartment and explore around there for a while.
 
2. I’m not traveling ALL the time. I’m actually doing what I’m doing on this photo a lot of the time (but from different locations, for sure).
 
3. No, I don’t have a sugar daddy.
 
4. No, I don’t have parents who pay for my trips.
 
5. I have about 4 different jobs/gigs/ventures, because I don’t like putting all my eggs in one basket. If something fails, I can rely on the other one. To learn more about what I exactly I do to make money, here’s this vlog I made on this topic: https://www.facebook.com/itsaTravelOD/videos/597320710451734/
 
6. About every 2 weeks, I go on a trip. If it’s short, I might disconnect. If it’s longer, I schedule some days just for work and some days for tours/activities/sightseeing/relaxing.
 
7. I go to coffee shops and work from there maybe 2-3 days a week. I personally love to work from home though.
 
8. I meet a lot of people through Instagram or on location-specific digital nomad/traveler Facebook groups (like this one), but I actually spend most of my time alone.
 
9. As long as I have wifi, I can work from anywhere.
 
10. When I post photos on pretty locations, I’m usually not there at the moment. I’m more likely to be chilling in my living room/hotel/coffee shop like I am on this photo.
 
I try to post as much as possible about my journey as a digital nomad on my Instagram account. Why? Because I love helping other people get to a point where they’re in love with what they do and enjoying their life to the fullest! Helping other people also allows me to learn and grow, so it’s a win-win for all.
