I Rob, I’m an IT digital Nomad from Jersey, I love juggling, computer games and Digital Classical music, (Covid has been a nightmare for anyone who is a PT!) unfortunately the world is becoming a much smaller place, I think the governments of the world are conspiring to frustrate anyone seeking digital freedom. It’s interesting how Accountants and Lawyers have been seconded to identify and trap you, so the sharing of information between people seeking to solve similar legal and accounting issues are becoming more important. Its great to see the very practical experience being shared here and helps to solve the rat traps awaiting all unware travellers! Navigating Facta and CRS is becoming the real challenge. especially for digital nomads seeking legal methods of being free. I am also worried about mobile phones IMEI and SIMs being used to track people movements internationally. Literally acting as roving bugs and movement detectors so I’m interested in talking about open standard , opensource sim free phones . Lets hope the world opens up again for us all soon! Despite all the traps and trip wires its a wonderful exciting place to explore with the limited time we have!

Hey nomad gang,

My name is Andy (37). I am a wannabe nomad at this point. I have a wife and 9 yr old daughter. We are planning to move to Bali in 5 years for my daughter to go to high school there. Until then we try to travel as much as possible and are trending towards slower travel as much as possible. We have a 3 week stay in Mexico coming up, working partially while there. I am here to learn as much as I can from all of you to prepare for living abroad as a nomad. Early retirement, taxes, insurance, building community, volunteering, travel hacks, health and the list goes on of the things I cant wait to get your perspective on. Its hard to find many people in my daily life that have this passion we share so I am grateful to have found you guys. See you in there!

Hi :wave: Nomad community.
It took me a while to get to Europe after I introduced myself more then a year ago, and now I am ready to finally move to Portugal. I am in the Netherlands :netherlands: right now after having spent many years in the :us: I hope to connect with people who plan to move to Portugal or are already in this beautiful country. I am an IT veteran who will retire after a lifetime in the corporate world. I hope I can return any help I will get.

Living in Texas right now. I have fond memories of wandering around Vilencia Portugal a few years ago. Thinking I really need to make it back there.

Hi everyone :wave: Happy to have found this group. I’m Kira, from Canada. I’m more of a nomad-lite kind of traveller. I used to do trips between 1-3 months at a time before the pandemic, mostly to warm places to avoid Canadian winters :slight_smile:, but never gave up my home base. I’m liquidating my apartment at the end of the summer though and plan on trying out full time travel this fall… really hoping things get more stable coronavirus-wise. I’m pretty conservative when it comes to my health but I’m also pretty keen to avoid spending another winter in Canada (2020 was the first time I spent a whole winter here in 5 years!). I write software for a living and bring my work with me wherever I go, taking a few weeks off and some long weekends here and there to enjoy the scenery wherever I’m at. It’s hard to pick just one favourite place, but Croatia, Mexico, and the northwest Rockies are definitely near the top. Can’t wait to get back to travelling and looking forward to meeting some other people in the same boat!

Hello everyone! Thank you all for the warm welcome. I’m looking forward to exploring this forum. I stumbled upon it by accident and thought I would give it a shot since I’m traveling more now. I’ve lived all over the U.S. and began traveling internationally in 2013 keeping up the habit until March of last year.

My favorite places so far are Lima and Tarapoto, Peru. I loved Buenos Aires, Argentina when I was there. I spent 2 months in BA. I’ve visited many different places all over Nicaragua, Mexico, Belice, and of course Peru. Much more travel is planned this year and next already. In fact, I’m headed back to Peru this July for a month. I’m fortunate my work allows me the flexibility to travel.

Take care and happy travels!

Hi everyone :slight_smile:

I’m from Johannesburg, South Africa :south_africa: - Lived in Toulouse, France :fr: for a couple years. Back in :south_africa: now, but trying to plan next move to Ireland :ireland:

I really loved Toulouse :fr:, Costa del Sol (Malaga, Marbella) :es: and Cape Town :south_africa:

For work, I run an online events company doing some of the biggest multi-speaker self development summits. Also getting started with trading stock markets. Both are awesome because I can work from anywhere as long as I have my laptop and (good) internet.

I love cars, coffee and travelling :smiley:

Found this community searching for answers to the challenges around bank accounts and residency, and what a pain it can be when moving country, having accounts closed because you’re no longer resident is a nightmare.

Glad to be here and look forward to learning from and interacting with everyone :slight_smile:

I’m Emmy and I’ve been traveling for many years now, mostly Asia and Africa. I found this group while surfing for destination . I am happy to be here and would like to meet this smart @tkrunning in Lithuania or Sweden any time is is around that axis
