Hey there,

My name is Clint, from Australia. I have been looking into segtting this lifestyle up for a while now, with the goal of being a Grey Digital Nomad up and down the East Coast of Australia in my 50s and beyond.

I am still skeptical, my focus to date has been more along the line of freelancing, particualarly using the popular freelance websites as opposed to remote employment.

As I'd need to earn cira $90k USD the remote employment options seem more feasable, as thus far those freelance sites have pretty dismal net returns for my efforts.

A good internet connection is also a main concern in Australia. Living in the #3 city, I can't seem to get one into my house, would hate to see how it would fare in regoinal area.

Anyhow, practicalities aside it's a romantic idea that keeps coming back to me.

Hey and welcome Clint! I'm the co-founder of this forum. Just know this, I've been travelling the world over the year and have met hundreds of people (including myself) living this lifestyle successfully. People who have house, pets, children, wives and any other responsibility you can think of. The phrase "where there's a will there is a way" is very true.

It's no romance, if you want it, you can have it. So the question is...do you really want it? ;)

I'm Rob from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I just returned from traveling to 12 countries in 7 months with the travel and work program We Roam. During my time on the trip, I went through two full-time remote jobs and had one before that. While I'm not good at keeping remote jobs, I am good at finding them and landing them. :lol:

To help aspiring remote workers find and land remote jobs, I put everything I know into a free course. No gimmicks or anything like that. It's straightforward and all the information is actionable and based on my personal experience. You can check it out here: http://robertgibb.me/free-remote-job-course/

Hi , I am vara. I am looking for a remote job since 5 months. I am tired after searching for a remote job and many companies cheated me and I lost 5 months of valuable time. Some companies simply posting attractive job offers for promoting their business. Some companies simply rejecting my application because of my time zone. Can I get any help form this forum. You can find my portfolio here http://varaprasadmaruboina.000webhostap ... /index.php

Hi, my name is Tye...

"Digital Nomad" is a term that expresses a lifestyle that i had been trying to define and desperately seeking for years but settled on describing my desire as "financial independence." Well, financial independence is nice, but being able to roam the planet and leverage my expertise as a software professional is more apropos. I live in the Dallas, Texas area and travel often to see 7-year old in Austin. My favorite getaway has become Costa Rica, and I intend to leverage internet marketing, drop-ship stores via Shopify, and Bitcoin and Altcoin trading and investing to achieve truly becoming digitally nomadic.

Hi, all together. My name is Andy, 41, from Germany. I have always wanted to be this kind of world traveller now called digital nomad although have explored the right word for it just some time ago.

Nevertheless I did some extensive travelling in my life so far as for example backpacking overland from India through China and Russia home to Germany, all without thinking much about any online businesses, I was young, single and didn t need much, just working in all kinds of fields for some time.

Today I am married, have an 11 year old son and live in Germany. Still dreaming about the vagabondish lifestyle again and again. 4 years ago I started studying electrical engineering at a distance laerning university, got my bachelor s degree just a few days ago and now orienting myself where to continue. Got pretty deep into software development and programming during these years, learned a lot by myself onliine and practised during 2 internships and love the analytical, logical thinking work.

My plan is to become an expert in some niche of programming and to freelance and live at least partly the digital nomad dream. I m thinking about what niche to pick, where to put my efforts in and learn and practice, I cant be a jack of all trades in my situation. Any advice from nomads in the software field very appreciated.

Nice to meet you all

Andy

Happy Birthday George!

I'm sure in your long time living this lifestyle you have seen a lot of people come in and out of it. Or perhaps witness it and wish they did it, and then never take the leap... Could you share your thoughts on why people don't do this when they want to?
What are your thoughts on the challenges of being a long time nomad. Perhaps a lack of home/community (I sometimes feel lonely and alienated. Especially when I reconnect with people who have never experienced what I have or seen much aside from their home town/city.)

I'm a Digital Nomad of 3 years, been to ~40 countries and working to empower more people to embrace the ability to travel and experience the world...
