Digital nomad: a new way of life

Have you ever dreamed of becoming a digital nomad? The globalized use of the Internet and telecommunication has made it easier than ever to make it happen. Working whenever and wherever you want, today on a beach in Bali and the day after tomorrow at the foot of Kilimanjaro is something real and doable, as many people have taken this philosophy as a way of life.

What is a digital nomad?

Digital nomads are basically characterized by two things: they work remotely for other companies or for their own and they do it from anywhere in the world. This way of life is based on carrying a laptop and a suitcase with our personal things to travel around the world, while earning money working online.

It is a new philosophy of life that takes advantage of the full potential of new technologies to work from anywhere there is a Wi-Fi connection. There are no office hours or a routine that is repeated day after day. Each working day is different and exciting thanks to the freedom that telecommunications provides.

Many people have switched to this way of life, tired of the routine and driven by an uncontrollable desire to discover the wonders of the world.

How does a digital nomad live?

The most important items for digital nomads are their laptops and smartphones. These are the foundation on which their life is based, they are the tools they use to be able to get the necessary money to travel to their next destination.

Their work goes with them wherever they go, so they don’t need a fixed office to work in, just a chair, a table and an Internet connection. A restaurant, a cafeteria, a coworking space, a library… any place that meets the conditions is sufficient.

A digital nomad is usually a very daring and adventurous person who refuses to live as society dictates. Free souls who are eager to live new experiences, learn about other cultures and socialize with new people every day. They are enterprising people who are clear about what they want and decide to go for it. They work to live, and not the other way around.

The culture of the digital nomad is also closely related to minimalism. They are people who do not need many things to live, since what is important for them are life experiences. In their suitcase, apart from their laptop, they only carry the essentials to live a simple life.
