There’s a growing breed of millennials who can’t quite give up the fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants travel lifestyle they became accustomed to during a gap year. These young people (and even, not go so young people) are also earning a decent living working abroad.
Great question. Digital nomads are people who are packing up their belongings, adopting a nomadic lifestyle and freelancing from wherever their heart desires. From social media experts to graphic designers, through to PR agencies, these people are living simply (but happily) travelling overseas.
Of course, you don’t need to be a millennial to jump on the digital nomad train. Nor do you need to have done a gap year.
The necessities? An open mind, a good work ethic, a desire to see the world and, of course, a great internet connection.
As technology gets more advanced, we find ourselves able to communicate effectively with people on the other side of the world through a computer or mobile phone screen and many online freelancers are cashing in on the freedom.
There’s even a nomadic community springing up all over the world, with shared coworking spaces in major cities like Sydney, Berlin, Amsterdam and London (there’s even one up the road from the Nimble office on the Gold Coast).
