Hi All,

Thanks for accepting me into the Nomad/Gate community!

We (me and my very looong-term girlfriend), both South African, have been travelling the globe as permanent nomads since the year 2000 and although we have been around the block a few times, we have spend the majority of the time in Africa! We have lived and worked in the tourism industry in more than 10 African countries and explore the continent with our trusty old Landie. Currently we reside in Tanzania and run a safari business with bush and beach camps.

:wave: Ciao! I’m Dario from Italy, so cool to discover this community (for me also through the banking article haha).

I started my nomad journey 1,5 years ago. I’ve been 8 months in Bali and 8 months in Lisbon. Loved both. :heart: :palm_tree: :sunrise_over_mountains:

I work as a copywriter and content marketer for a Marketing automation platform.

I will be for a month in Croatia towards the end of the year, so any recommendation is welcome :slight_smile:

I will also do a Vipassana soon, which terrifies me :stuck_out_tongue: Did someone here do it?

One book I recommend… The order of time by Carlo Rovelli :slight_smile:

Hello, Iam Puyan, Iam from Iran and I am willing to work as freelancer from Iran. Due to US biycots on Iran banking system I can not use paypal or master card. If Iam at the right website tell me. And if not show me a free international way. Thanks.

Hello everyone,
My name is Enrique, I’m glad I found this forum, I found it looking around the web for answers, I’m new to remote working and I can say that I’ll love to make it my way of life from now on, it’s just amazing to work from wherever you want as long as you have internet and your computer.

But one thing that was making noise in my head was paying a high price for currency exchange in PayPal, so I’m moving to TransferWise, and hoping to find more ways to move around paying less, right now I’m not traveling, but I plan to do it in the near future.

I like to learn new things all the time.

Welcome Puyan, I’m new here also, but I hope you find your answers here.
It looks like a great community.

Hi everyone!
I am a freelance web dev (Front-end so far) with some skills with WP, woo-commerce and PHP snippets.
I live in Argentina, Capital, but I long to go and live in another city (what we call “el interior del pais” -“the inner-country”). Living near the mountains, rivers and nature is my dream, going for it!
And I LOVE dogs, reading (a lot) and walking…just…walking, letting the mind …be…with no intention at all

Hi All. Im Todd, a Texan-American that recently relocated to Ukraine to run a software company. Love to travel, and looking to make this relocation a lifestyle change.

Thanks!

:wave: Hi All,

My name is also Thomas and I’m originally from Denmark but grew up in Tanzania and have since lived in the US and most recently Hong Kong. My Wife and I just became empty nesters with our daughter leaving for Spain.

We are currently looking at moving to Portugal and in doing research, I discovered the nomad gate community. Really appreciate the resource guides on the subject. Great to be able to share experiences.:clap:

Looking forward to learning lots!

Cheers

Thomas

Hi Everyone,

I’m Paul living in Germany since the late 70’s. I moved to Germany from my home town, Boston Mass USA. I’ve been living and working primarily in Germany, but as a Project Manager, I’ve had the pleasure of traveling all over Europe. On vacation, I tend to either go back to the States or travel within Europe to cities that I haven’t traveled to with my work.
My favorite places by far are Hawaii, San Francisco, Stockholm and Amalfi coast. I love to cook, especially Italian and enjoy BBQs with the family and friends.

Hello Guys! :hugs: :raising_hand_man:t4:

I’m Alex. I’m a DJ / Producer / Martial Arts Teacher and I’ve been a nomad for like 6 years and this community seems perfect for my needs and things I want to share. Together with my buddy, we produce videos as we travel to partially finance this life style. We do things like this https://vimeo.com/247429411 to inspire people to respect and appreciate Nature :slight_smile: (this is not for promotion purpose)

We have some interesting projects ahead of us. For example, we are going to Socotra in November. Most people will not know this island, so I will share this little adventure if anyone is interested :upside_down_face:
