Travel Gear for the Nomadic Dog

Travel Gear for the Nomadic Dog

The biggest conversation-starter when we tell people about our nomadic lifestyle is definitely the fact that we travel with our dog.

On Minimalism and Being a Digital Nomad

So, how do we manage to travel and lead a location-independent lifestyle? One of the keys to this journey has been making sure that we are relatively minimalist.

Co-working vs Coffeeshops

Co-working vs Coffeeshops

As a remote worker, you've got a lot of choices. Rather than the same commute to the same office or site every day, the world is yours to explore. At some point, though, you've got to sit down and actually get some work done.

How to Spend a Year in Europe Without Overstaying Your 90-Day Schengen Visa

We've recently been getting some questions about how we managed to stay in Europe for the last year. Neither one of us has a long-term resident visa, nor a European passport at this time (though we are in the process of applying for the Spanish long-term resident visa for next year). However, we didn't let that stop us from staying in Europe as digital nomads. So, here are a few things to keep in mind when planning your European trip if you only have a 90-day Schengen visa

As digital nomads, we've come across a number of different potential working modalities. Some nomads swear by the coworking space and the connections and productivity that it can bring, while others are able to reap the same benefits working from home.

Getting Around While On the Road

Getting Around While On the Road

On more than one occasion, while living in Barcelona, we have looked jealously at one of the brightly coloured red bikes whizzing past. These bicing bikes can be found all over the city, and are a fixture of Barcelona life. With high levels of bike theft, residents often choose to whiz around on these vehicles ...

The Digital Nomad's Guide to Montevideo, Uruguay

While not the first location on most individuals' list of places to visit, Uruguay is increasingly becoming more renown.
