Tips for rookie digital nomads

8 July 2022

Many of us dream of obtaining the lifestyle of a digital nomad where you can lay on the beach and say that is your office for the day. Being location independent has become a popular lifestyle but it does come with its challenges.

Here are our tips for everyone starting out as a digital nomad!

Choose the right destinations

As a beginner to this lifestyle, it is best to stay familiar with your chosen destinations at least from the start. Cultural shock can affect you a lot but don’t let it discourage you from learning about new ways of living.

Once you have settled in the lifestyle of travelling frequently and have more experience, start exploring more unfamiliar locations.

Find community

When travelling frequently it can become a bit isolating compared to leading a normal lifestyle. Thankfully, most major cities have communities with other digital nomads and travellers that you can connect with.
Facebook groups and Whatsapp chats are a good way to find new nomad friends. You can also ask for any information you need for your trip such as coworking spaces, local coffee shops and meetups.

Utilize technology

During the pandemic, many businesses went remote and have adapted technology to keep employees productive. More apps than ever are being created for purposes such as being more organized, scheduling meetings and video meetings.

A mistake which is often made by beginner nomads is staying on their phone plan from home. You should always research which SIM card has the best service and may be used as a hotspot.

Enjoy the moment

By definition, digital nomads are always connected but if you want to maximize your experience while being out there in the world try to take some time just to relax and be in the present moment.
When you have done all your work for the day, log off and watch the sunset without a phone in your hand, without pressure to capture every single moment of your journey.
