Working online whilst traveling the world sounds like a dream job for many people. But what exactly is a digital nomad? Pete and Supi live as digital nomads.

They travel the world permanently, work on the road and are always online. Their lives epitomize the digital revolution and how it is changing how we work live.

Many people dream of living and working on the road - a dream that has come true for Pete and Supi. Driven by a passion for travel, they set out to escape the dreary routine of everyday life. They want to achieve maximum self-fulfilment without big safety nets and full-cover insurance, in a nomadic world of adventure. Pete is a DJ, so parties and big cities are a defining part of his life, whereas Suparni aka Supi is the opposite; she’s looking for spirituality and awareness. The two show us the huge spectrum of opportunities that the world of the digital nomad has to offer. Despite their fundamental differences, they both earn their living by working remotely. The digital age has made this way of life possible: without the Internet, it would be almost unthinkable. But their lifestyle does have its limits, as is becoming especially evident to Suparni with her plans for parenthood. But it's hard to find someone you love who also loves the same sort of lifestyle, and the constant travel is a big obstacle.

The German woman has a very sad future ahead of her unless she changes her life. One day she'll realize that the 10th travel experience will not fulfill her life the way having a family can. She will wake up one day but it may be too late.
IMPORTANT footnote: You can only be a Digital Nomad if you hold a passport from certain specific countries.

There are plenty of opportunities to make money you just need skills and ideas to do that . This is something very challenging and exciting.

Is it possible to combine the EB-5 visa program for foreigners looking for an accelerated path to US citizenship with Puerto Rico's tax laws? There's also chatter about the "opportunity zones" in Puerto Rico that, combined with these incentives, could make it even more attractive?

Cant even make a living at home on this internet? So this is a fake news story !!!
Even if you could only do it for a couple of years, the life experience alone would be worth it. The skills you could develop would outweigh anything you could learn at a university. Some people just don't fit the industrial age model of living. School>career>mortgage>marriage>offspring>middle age>then a slow decline until you fade out. That's not exactly freedom.

Oh my God, I so much wish to be a digital nomad or gypsy! It would be my dream come true! The problem is that I'm not an online digital guru, I'm a PhD student, & aim to do sociological-philosophical research & writing, so I don't know how can I get the money from other than to work in the limiting confines of academia!!!

I wonder if they have any of those digital nomad meeting centers in Ho Chi Minh City. I'd like to go to one and check it out.

The path that is not for everyone.

I am also a Digital Nomad for more than 9 years. I love this kind of career because it gives me freedom to go anywhere. For you to start you need to accept the fact that you will sit long hours infront of your laptop or computer. If you are extroverted person this is not the right job for you. That is only my opinion.

You also need a lot of skills to earn a good money.

actually, i live as a Digital Nomad now, i traveling and record my story on my youtube channel. i'm so happy of my live now.

I work remote and theoretically can work anywhere there's a decent internet connection. I've done quite a few "double remote" trips (working remote from my normal remote spot) and it's not too bad. The things they don't mention are timezones. Most remote work (that pays more than a few hundred euros a month) is done with other people and you need to be available for conference calls, etc. It's not very practical for me to be working a graveyard shift in Turkey so I can be on a US time zone where all my clients are. I want to be out enjoying life too! Also, it's hard not having my dual monitors and big desk when I'm away. It's not impossible, but it is inconvenient. The biggest problem is I like having a home. After doing the road warrior thing for several years, I really came to hate the feeling of disconnectedness from not having anywhere to call home.

For sometime its fine & will be really cool but then one'll get tired eventually...very soon, roaming here & there...
Just my thought! 🙃😁

Escaping the hamster wheel. I think most people mean being financially free, meaning not having to work, when they use that phrase. This still sounds like work. After 15 minutes she start talking about it. Well if you only need 1000 dollars a month in expenses and earn 6000 a month than that should be easy.

Hoping they never have children....

"It is not clear how many digital nomads there are...". Like talking about a newly discovered species! :-)
HowCome Seriously
First, I thought this is a good idea then I tried and I realized that it is such a bad idea for some reasons.

The worst reason is to work in a beautiful place that you better look away from your computer and appreciate every moment there. But what I did is looking only at the computer because the tons of works and lose the opportunity to enjoy the places I visit. So.... I world rather working everyday in office and fully take a rest when I’m traveling

American Nomads (Hitchhiking Documentary) Working online and traveling the world 5 months ago   58:44

Beneath the America we think we know lies a nation hidden from view – a nomadic nation, living on the roads, the rails and in the wild open spaces.

When British writer Richard Grant moved to the USA more than 20 years ago it wasn’t just a change of country. He soon found himself in a world of travellers and the culture of roadside America - existing alongside, but separate from conventional society.

Grant himself became infected by the wandering bug and for over a decade lived the nomadic life himself. Criss-crossing the country, he ventured ever-deeper into the burning deserts – energised by the limitless landscape and the never-ending possibilities of what lay beyond. The secret of his happiness, he confesses, is never to stay in any place for longer than three weeks.

In American Nomads he takes to the road again, on a journey without destination. In a series of encounters and unplanned meetings, Richard Grant is guided by his own instincts and experiences - and the serendipity of the road. Travelling with loners and groups, he encounters the different ‘tribes’ of nomads as he journeys across the deserts of America’s south-west.

He meets hitch-hikers and gutter punks, train hopping kids, blood-and-thunder travelling preachers in one-horse towns and transient rodeo riders who drive thousand miles for an eight-second ride. And the biggest tribe of all – the retirees - ‘snow-birds’ – who sold their houses and have taken to the road in luxurious motorhomes, turning parts of the desert into transient suburbias.
