When you’re a digital nomad, you truly are free to travel anywhere you want. The world is your oyster and you can stay on the road for as long as you like – until you’ve bled the Earth dry of every incredible thing that you want to see.
But with so much to choose from, where do you begin? Of course everyone will have their own ideas but here are five destinations to definitely consider checking out…
Zadar is an area in Croatia that is a brilliant spot for digital nomads for all kinds of reasons. For one, it is surrounded by some absolutely stunning scenes of natural beauty. Right up there is Krka National Park which has some beautiful waterfalls and a stunningly attractive lake. There are great beaches and the weather is fabulous too.
At the same time though, Zadar has the benefit of being a good fit for the digital lifestyle thanks to lots of free WiFi (even in the National Parks!) and some great bars and cafes where you can sit and get some work done.
Not everywhere you visit as a digital nomad has to be completely exotic and tropical. Cities can also be fantastic to visit and Europe is full of beautiful ones to try.
London is a particularly smart choice because it has so many incredible landmarks, so much culture and history and a vibrant nightlife. There are also plenty of great places to work, which include tons of cafes but also museums and the stunning British Library.
Other European cities to try out include: Rome, Berlin, Paris, York, Oxford and more.
Thailand is a favorite among backpackers, nomads and others and it’s one of the classic places to check out when you’re on your travels. The beaches look like postcards, booze isn’t too expensive and you have the incredible full-moon party that is an absolute must for everyone.
Tokyo is an incredible place to go if you want to feel like a real fish out of water – which is what travel is all about for many people. There are a ton of incredible experiences to be found here and you can even try working in the beautiful ‘New York’ bar from Lost in Translation.
I wanted to include some curve balls on this list that perhaps you hadn’t considered. Radolfzell is a town in Germany that is right on the Italian and Swiss border. That means that you can visit both those places and I particularly recommend the Rhein Falls and better yet, the beautiful Sisikon. I stayed in a mountain chalet that I found on AirBnB!
Radolfzell is a good spot for entrepreneurs itself though too, thanks to one of the best European libraries I’ve had the pleasure of working in!
But before you embark on this new lifestyle, ask yourself the following questions:
How long do you plan on travelling continuously? 3 months? 6 months? 1 year? longer?
How much money do you have in-hand for the period you wish to be travelling?
Do you have a side hustle that will give you additional income while you travel?
Are you planning on blogging for money while you travel?
If you are a newbie blogger, don’t pack your bags just yet because your blog will not be generating you any substantial income anytime soon and you cannot assume you can rely on that for any financial support.
If anything, you are likely to be losing money in your early months blogging! So what other options are there? Do other freelance gigs online? This is all very uncertain.
If you want to travel and be enjoying yourself and not having to worry about money while you move from one city to the next, then you need to create a progressive passive income before you set off on your journey.
