Digital Nomads: Life Hacks 7 Tips for Travel-and-work Stays

First, you don’t have to travel all the time if you work from home or call yourself a “digital nomad.” Your best travel speed depends on you. And it can change as time goes on. Sometimes I want to slow down a bit to spend two weeks in one place. For someone else, it might still be too fast.

Second, I’ve put together these tips to help other digital nomads who are traveling find better places to stay. If you have more to say, please comment.

Life Hacks for Digital Nomads 7 Tips for Traveling & Working

Here are some helpful life hacks for digital nomads: 7 suggestions to help you get the most out of your stays if you travel for work.

1. Prepare for a Few Days in Advance

You don’t want to worry too much about what you’ll do at 2 p.m. in two months. You also want to know where you’ll go after you land. Find the best place for planning.

2. Nobody Tells You How Long You Have to Stay

You don’t have to go to a new country every day just because you call yourself a “digital nomad.” We’re all different. Find out what helps you. I think it’s best to stay in one place for about four to seven days, depending on the place. It can also be best to stay for a month. I also like staying in different places and parts of the same city.

3. Make a list of the Most Desirable Areas to Stay in Advance

When you travel, it’s hard to guess which area is the best. And it’s not always in the middle. Check travel blogs or the website Hoodmaps.com (and contribute). Getting stuck in a bad area could cost more than the booking fee.

4. Check Out the Reviews on Google Maps for the Hotel

It doesn’t need to be said. I didn’t do this once, which taught me a valuable lesson. I left my place of stay right away. Still, they ended up on the street, looking for a new place to live and calling a taxi… You do not want it. I’d rather see more and better reviews. Check the time.

P.S. Google Maps often shows even Airbnb apartments.

5. Before Making a Long-term Commitment, Stay for Less Time

Start by renting the flat for a week if you want to stay longer. You might find out that there’s a loud bar, too much traffic, or something else you hadn’t noticed at first. Walk around at night to check out the area. Also, if you want to stay in one place for a long time, I think you should try living in different parts of the city first.

6. Accommodation Costs Should Not Be Cut Too Much

We all want to cut back on our spending. Then, if you want to save money, ask for a discount, book directly, or stay longer. It’s not worth it to book a place that’s too cheap. In other ways, it always costs something.

7. Hotels Vs. Co-living and Homestays

I like both apartments and traditional hotels, so I choose which one to stay in based on how I feel. You can meet a lot of other travelers at co-livings. Homestays are a great way to stay with a local family if you are traveling alone. This term, Vietnam and Georgia are hot and friendly.

Remote workers shouldn’t stay in hostels, which are places with shared rooms. Even though they might have some shared workspaces, someone could steal your tech. When I was 18 and didn’t have enough money to travel, hostels helped me a lot. But back then, it was just my two T-shirts that I was responsible for and me.
