So you work remotely and love to travel the world? We’ve got a destination for you that’s not always on everyone’s radar, but definitely should be! The small island nation of Taiwan. This beautiful country in the South China Sea might not be the first place you think of when deciding your next location in Asia. However, it’s packed with high-rising mountains, lush green rainforests, volcanic arcs, and bustling cities to top it all off.
Holidays are just around the corner and everyone is running around to get the right gifts for their family and friends. But what do you buy your digital nomad friend/brother/sister/daughter/son who’s always running off to other places? Obviously a pair of socks just won’t do (because it means more for them to carry around), and likely you won’t even be able to give it to them in person. So how can you still shower your

Wow, time flies when you’re having fun! It’s already been seven months since I quit my high-paying corporate job and took the scary leap into the digital nomad lifestyle. Do I regret it? Not for a second! In fact, it has been the best decision of my life. I’ll tell you why. I remember it all too well. It was July 25th of this year when I boarded a plane on my own with a
This is a guest post by Alissa van der Voort, happiness coach and founder of Happy Insights --- I want to talk to you today about happiness. Imagine sitting underneath a palm tree, sipping some juice from a fresh coconut while confirming to your manager that he will get the presentation by noon. Sounds like a fairy tale, doesn’t it? Maybe even too good to be true, because even though the image sounds very appealing,
The application period for The Remote Trip is closing by the end of this month and we've heard so many people be enthusiastic about the program. "That's awesome! I wish I could do that some day". Why wait for some day tho? Why do you keep telling yourself these things? Don't get us wrong, we've gotten many wonderful applications and can't wait to meet the people who've already signed for a Trip in person. However,
A lot of people have been coming up to us asking: "is it real, being a digital nomad, or is it all a hoax?". We can't blame them for thinking that. If we weren't living this lifestyle every day, we might also think it sounds too good to be true. That's why we wanted to let you hear it from the horse's mouth! We've interviewed 3 experienced digital nomads, who've been doing this for years

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I - I took the one less traveled by. And that has made all the difference.” - Robert Frost.   Most people tend to choose “the road most traveled”, which is often the easiest and therefore a less eventful path through life. However, most people never question whether this “normal” path is really the right path for them. That way people can become trapped all too easily in
It’s the one question that plagues remote workers the most: how can I be as productive as possible the next few hours, so I can spend the rest of my day relaxing and visiting beautiful places? Now that you finally have the flexibility to decide when and where you work, you want to make use of of that as much as you can, right?! One of the perks of working remote is that as long
I know what you’re thinking: “Yes, this working remote sounds great and all that, but my company would never allow me to do that”. Stop. First off all, when you start with that perception, of course it’s never going to work. Because your starting point is stated in a negative way. As Tony Robbins always says: “your thoughts and patterns are the only thing standing in the way of you achieving your goal”. If you

What the heck am I doing here? It's 7pm on a Thursday, I'm 11 hours into an 8 hour working day, I'm late for dinner, again, and the cursor is blinking at me menacingly from another faceless spreadsheet...surely this can't be life...can it? Today I've decided to share my personal story with you on how I felt completely stuck working the 9-5 corporate job, how that was reason enough for me to quit my job
