I think New Delhi is a city that intimidates travelers. It definitely intimidated me! I wasn’t really looking forward to my visit to New Delhi at all, if I’m honest. We would be spending just one day there, but in any case it seemed like a scary, busy, dirty city. And while the last two are certainly true, the first is not. When we were there it was just the highlight of the smog crisis in Delhi. In the morning we could see maybe 300 meters in front of us from our hotel room. But what surprised me is that Delhi has some really beautiful sights. That are definitely worth a visit, in fact: it would be a shame to miss them. Which is why I share the most beautiful sights in New Delhi here, for your first visit to New Delhi!
I know it’s a little bit late in the year to be talking resolutions, but at the same time: any day is a good day to change your life. So that’s why I wanted to talk a little bit about the concept of resolutions and how I’ve decided to approach them. Over the past few years I’ve been the master of overstretching myself in terms of resolutions. I think last year I had about twelve of them! While I got some done, and I wasn’t too strict on myself, in general it’s better to keep a narrow focus and just focus on one thing. That’s why I only have one New Year’s resolution for 2018. One focus word.
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!
As the new year is knocking at our door, I’ve been thinking a lot about unhealthy patterns I have in my business. When you’re busy, busy it can be hard to step away and look at your career in a helicopter view and notice what’s actually going right and wrong. That’s why I’m helping you with sharing a few unhealthy habits to give up in 2018 to kick your career into overdrive!
One of the things I regret most in my life? That I never took a gap year before, during or after my study. It never really occurred to…
