The simple answer to this is of course to get some new adventures, meet new cultures and get out of your comfort zone. But it also depends on who you are as a person.
"As a person I am very curious and my mood is much better when the sun is shining. I mean, of course I miss my friends a family but I know they will always be there. I get easily bored and am always looking forward to new adventures", Maja concludes before Sam adds to her points.
"I do enjoy the company of my friends and family for sure, but I always have this feeling of wanting to explore new places, discover new things and to see how it is to be living there. Yes, it's tough to keep meeting new people, but that's not nearly as tough as the upsides by living abroad. I guess it differs a lot from person to person, and in the end it's something you need to see for yourself", Sam explains.
But where should you go, you might ask yourself. The world is your playground, but is there places that are better for living a digital nomad lifestyle, and if so, where should you go in order to get proper internet connection, easy visas and to find a hub where you can meet likeminded travellers?
Maja has a clear preference:
"I mostly traveled in South East Asia so far, and I think most digital nomads would say Bali, since everything works so smooth. It's easy to find a fast Wi-Fi connection, it's an easy place to meet new people, beautiful nature, you can go everywhere with your scooter, there's plenty of good food opportunities and it's really safe. And if you're cool with living like a local in homestays, you can live really cheap."
For Sam it's not only Asia that comes to mind, when trying to narrow it down to that one perfect spot.
"Of course Asia is great for digital nomads, but I also want to highlight Australia and New Zealand, where you also get great internet connection, the countries are beautiful and there's a lot to see. Even in the more remote places there's good opportunities to either find a job or work from your laptop. Europe is actually also a great place, that people tend to forget. Especially if you're from Europe since you can move freely between the countries, you don't need visas, internet is great and you can work really easily. Europe is probably my favourite place to be a digital nomad, but I believe that you can find good internet pretty much everywhere, so I wouldn't focus too much on that."
