Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Nataly and I am a writer, a teacher, a translator and a digital nomad. What’s a digital nomad, you may wonder. It just means that you travel constantly and you use the Internet to earn a living.
How did it all start? My boyfriend and I are VERY fond of travelling and we have visited more than 30 countries in the last 5 years. We were determined to become digital nomads for quite some time but we just weren’t sure how to turn that dream into reality. We extracted some advice from travel blogs although we had to assemble the more practical advice ourselves.
It was only in September 2015 that we adopted a true digital nomad lifestyle. We first moved to Krakow in Poland (6 weeks), then Lublin which is also in Poland (5 weeks), then Budapest (5 weeks), the Azores (3 months), Nazaré (a month), Wismar in Germany (a month), Poznan in Poland (a month), Jelenia Gora in Poland (a month), Vienna (a month), Taipei (a month), Granada (5 weeks), Rijeka in Croatia (2 months), Riga (6 weeks), Kuressaare in Estonia (1 month) and we are now in Tromsø (Norway).
We typically use Airbnb so that we can always (more or less) feel at home. There are always some good and some bad surprises but most of our flats have been really nice and comfortable.
In my opinion, the most difficult thing about digital nomading is to fit all your belongings into a small suitcase and a rucksack. However, I like to believe that life is about being and not about having.
It was nice to meet you too. And please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
