For years I have been keeping track of how much I spend on trips (you can see the overview here), so naturally I kept doing this as soon as I became a digital nomad. This month I’m sharing how much it costs to live in Thailand! We stayed in Thailand for almost a whole month (we had a 30 day visa), and spent 1 week in Bangkok, and three weeks in Chiang Mai. We didn’t do much in Chiang Mai. We went to Pai for a weekend, visited a festival and two temples, but other than that we worked a lot and lived a “normal” life. It was exactly what the doctor ordered! Curious about how much we spend during this month and how expensive Thailand exactly is? Come take a look!
I have been a full-time digital nomad for a few months now. Without a real home and fixed costs, traveling full-time, earning money online as long as I…
Now that we are well on our way on our trip, I thought it would be fun to show you our world trip preparations. It’s actually quite funny how the weeks leading up to our departure went: one moment I got panic attacks when I saw how much still needed to be done, the other moment I thought: there’s not much left to do. Over the exact same to do-list. Perspective, eh?
Roughly, there are just three parts of preparation for a big trip: all the administrative stuff, the move, and the actual journey (and planning). Being the control freak that I am, I make checklists of everything, and it feels great when I get to check so many things off my list. Let me take you through the preparation we went through when planning our world trip. Hopefully this checklist will be helpful to you for your world trip preparations :)
AHHH you guys, I’m SO excited to share this news with you: after four years of blood, sweat and tears we have finally made the decision. We are giving up our house and going to travel the world! And we’ll just continue to work as normal. Anyone who knows me personally, won’t be overly shocked by this step. It’s been a long time coming. I recently looked it up, and the first time I’ve got the idea was back in 2013. After a lot of fighting and slow grooming, the boyfriend is finally on board with the plans. When he mentioned this spring that he’d rather leave yesterday than tomorrow, to travel the world with his laptop, I finally knew it was time to start planning. Read this post to find out all about our travel plans, how the decision came about, and what it means for my work.
Ok, so I normally don’t get SO excited about give-aways that I have to use three exclamation points. I also don’t normally share anyone’s give away, because to be honest… they are usually kind of lame. But when Teachable (a platform with online courses) approached me, I instantly said yes. They are giving away the ultimate prize for digital nomads:
So you want to travel the world and make money while you’re at it? Great! You’ll join an awesome tribe of bad ass inspiring ladies trotting the globe with their laptop in hand, who choose a beach view over a cubicle any day. But as any entrepreneur will know: while the most rewarding and satisfying, it’s not the easiest path. Hence I brought in X ladies who are kicking ass on their digital nomad path to share with you their advice for aspiring nomads. What do they wish they would’ve known when starting out?
