Digital nomads are quite literally sailing into the sunset, as targeted cruises become more and more popular. But is it really cost effective and workable to live a life on the high seas?

Earlier this year, The Telegraph published an article with figures working out that living on a cruise ship is cheaper than living in London. Of course, digital nomads have known for many years now that living in most countries is cheaper than living in London, which is why we hang out in countries like Thailand and Bulgaria, rather than London and New York.

travel-transformation

I’ve worked for and with dozens of companies around the world, and I never cease to be baffled by the diversity in professional standards I witness. For the few years that I was a foreign English language teacher, no two schools were ever alike in their expectations of how I should teach or my role in their hierarchy. Yet, each acted as though the way they did things was the way everyone did them, and that I should have automatically known all this.

As a freelancer, things weren’t much better. A company in India once hired me remotely to handle some of their brand strategy and messaging before being impressed enough with my work to invite me out to Delhi so we could upgrade our working relationship.

My name is Sarah, and I am a digital nomad.

The term “digital nomad” is becoming more and more popular amongst travellers, and not only does it describe a certain way of working, but it actually encompasses an entire lifestyle. Being a digital nomad does not simply mean to be able to work from anywhere you want.

Most digital nomads don’t just have one job; a lot of them work as a freelancer in their free time or host a blog or podcast.

Why We Built Digital Nomads Community

As digital nomads, we tend to be solo travelers. This has been the case for me. For over seven years I have been on/off the road both as a nomad and expat. Last year for the first time I traveled and worked remotely with a community of entrepreneurs on the EU-Brazil Connect program. The program connects European Entrepreneurs with accelerators and business experts in Brazil for up to six months.
