The lifestyles of Digital Nomads vary greatly, depending on finances, family status, location of travel, interests, philosophies (and so on…). At Digital Nomads Forum, we Admins have had a certain set of experiences that may be totally different from other Digital Nomads. Here are some of the most common Digital Nomad Lifestyles that we’ve come across:
1. Backpacker Nomad Lifestyle
This Nomad has always dreamed of traveling the world and has just left their desk job to do it! They likely have a backpack and hop around hostels and guesthouses, while chilling in co-working spaces and seeing the sights. The Backpacker Nomad is generally drawn to cheaper locations like South East Asia where their dollar will stretch further. Some spend a few weeks in one location, and other try to settle in for a few months.
2. Nomadic Family Lifestyle
The Nomadic Family has a few kids and travels around the world with them in tow. Nomadic Families are drawn to adventure and generally travel a bit slower than single nomads. A lot of the time, their money can stretch further in the locations they go to and they live very comfortably by renting family houses and having everyday family meals.

3. Established/Baller Nomad Lifestyle
This Nomad has likely been at it for a few years, or maybe her company was just acquired by Google and she’s now onto her next project. You might not find this Nomad in hostels and low budget accommodations, but wherever she is she definitely has a pool and some seriously influential friends.
4. The "Expat" Nomad
The “Expat” Digital Nomad likes to travel slow. Often staying in places for 6 months (or even longer), they have the benefit of finding longer-term accommodations (often at cheaper prices) and truly living like a local… or an expat local at least! This is a great way to meet friends and really lay down roots, while working out of co-working spaces and getting to explore every nook and cranny of a city.
