Introduce yourself! 👋

Hello. My name is J. Ramon Carbajosa, My friends call me Montxo.

I was born in Spain. Lived in the US, Brazil, Denmark, Portugal, UK and currently in Senegal. I like to see myself as a nomad and I am still planning additional moves.

I am into business development. I help companies export. My background is in business and finance and environment.

I am bilingual in English/Spanish. I also speak French and Portuguese and some Danish.

I am interested in getting to know how the Nomad community develops and tackles some of the challenges it faces.

Hello! My name is Yvonne and I’m french-salvadorean. I’m a fiscal resident of El Salvador but spend most of my time between my second home in Miami and Europe. I speak spanish, english, french and italian. Ever since I divorced 5 years ago, I have been traveling the world looking for a place where to start a new life…still looking.
I’m looking forward to connecting with this community and share common interests.
I think my first question to all of you will be: what do you respond when people ask you " where do you live?" :crazy_face: To me, that’s the hardest question to answer socially; only followed by “what do you do?”~ I travel the world devouring as much knowledge as I can and follow my interests: Art history, languages, workshops on jewelry making, perfumery, silk flower making, ethnic weaving, leather accessories, chess, philosophy, salsa dancing, etc. Currently, I’m a garden designer in the making.

I’m excited to learn from all of you :smiley:

Hi fellow Nomads! I’m Marc and It’s great to be part of this vibrant community :slight_smile:
I divide my time wandering about in Europe and Canada.
As of a year ago, I am mostly nomadic while I work as a researcher and in data systems analytics administration. When I’m not working on my laptop I’m known to fly sport planes, climb rock walls and sail around. See you out there!
Cheerios!

I’m Kevin, originally a typical American, I’ve lived overseas for 8 years with 6 of those in China. I’m now completely fluent in Mandarin and after 4 years at China’s top tech firm, I’m trying to figure out how to leverage this unique background as a China tech consultant. :nerd_face::cn:

This has allowed me to join the ranks of you fine people; the new nomads.:kissing_smiling_eyes:

I love summers in the Pacific Northwest, and most other times in festive Rio de Janeiro or naturally beautiful Sydney Australia.

For the aspiring enlightened and/or non-arrogant person, I’d recommend vipassana meditation and a book like Waking Up by Sam Harris for a nice kick in the ego.:person_in_lotus_position:

Hi, I’m Niels, originally from :netherlands:. I work in software development, mostly as a technical writer these days although I still have a development side hustle. Strictly speaking, I’m not really a nomad but I work remotely from :canada: for a :us::netherlands: company and occasionally do extended “workations”, most recently in :new_zealand:. I also try to take time off work as much as possible to enjoy :earth_africa::mountain_snow::tent::mountain_biking_man:

Hi Everybody!

It’s great to be part of this community and look forward to participating actively wherever I can be of help.:raising_hand_man:

I’m currently working in the Middle East but I’m thinking of moving to Malta and cutting ties with employers to live a freer life as an international contractor for some months in the year, travelling the rest. :wink: I hope I can profit from the experience of other nomads here to find the right way to get this done efficiently.

I’ve been an expat for the last 25 years, having worked and lived in 9 countries. Kinda nomad already, isn’t it… :earth_africa::earth_americas:

As a result I think, I love to enjoy diversity and to adapt to the “environment”. So, difficult to pinpoint clear preferences. I like the sandy beaches of Northeast Brazil as much as I liked visiting Tokyo! Why be limited? Every place has something great to offer, although some places require you to look really harder (Riyadh in Saudi Arabia comes to mind… :sweat_smile:). Sports is an important part of my life, as is nice chats with friends around food, music and drinks! :joy:

Thanks for the people behind the Nomad Gate! It’s a great resource. Your hard work is certainly most appreciated.

I work for an online advertisement agency in Tokyo and just had a taste of working remotely for half a month, needless to say it was great :wink: I’m not a nomad yet but my goal is to become location independent by the end of next year so I can work and travel at the same time :airplane: :earth_asia:

Not sure if I can make any useful contributions to the community since I’m just learning about how to live a nomad life, but the info here has been really helpful so hopefully I’ll be able to help someone else as well :blush:
