Do you want to know how a day in a life of a digital nomad looks like? I was also curious, until I realized it’s becoming my reality.
I am stepping on a mission of finding my freedom. It may work out, or it may not. But the most important thing is to try to make it happen. And the funny thing is that the most frustrating thing is currently my packing! I mean seriously, why do I do this to myself? 3 suitcases for 2 seasons (autumn in Switzerland and autumn in Canary islands). You figure out the math. I just googled it: Travel packing hacks
Besides my logistics, I am also trying to organize a farewell get together with some of the coolest people I met in this 6 months in Vienna. Of course the weather is shitty, but maybe this will show who really wants to give me the last hug despite rain and cold. And not to mention that last three days I am mainly saying goodbye to people and realizing some of them actually don’t want me to go and kinda really like me. So that’s cool. And sad.
In between all this I am trying to set up 2 skype meetings which are both important money/business wise, so I really shouldn’t miss them. In this case I already realized how important it is for a digital nomad to be able to connect online. I guess train services are aware of changing lifestyles and I will have Wi-Fi on train which will enable me to do some stuff while travelling. Big up ÖBB.
Online banking for nomads
As I cancelled my residency and closed my bank account here in Austria, I realized I should do some research on how digital nomads deal with their money and transactions. Of course I did a professional research (meaning I asked a question in several Facebook groups). Apparently there are prepaid debit and credit cards. I just have to figure out where to get them and what’s the best option. This one seems to be quite appealing so far for me: Revolut app.
You might get the rough idea of how exciting and chaotic life can get if you travel a lot, but I think people who live like that would basically be bored if our lives would not be like this. I have roughly estimated that half a year is a perfect time for me to live in one place so let’s see what happens in my next adventure and how long will it last.
And if you ask me if I can do this? My answer is:”I think I can”
