Digital Nomads: The TRUTH About Being a Digital Nomad
You are a nomad, it kind of means you have no country. What’s the psychology of that?
Is there a downside?
Yeah, I would say there are definitely some downsides to being a nomad. You know a lot of times your friends and your routine can be a little spontaneous. Your friendships can be transient if you’re moving around every three to six months but I would say the most
long-term digital nomads like myself, usually find a hub where they’re going to be spending
a year or two at the very minimum and still traveling from that location.
But because you have a travel hub you’re going to be making more concrete friendships.
You’re going to have a more solid routine that’s easier to get back into and I would say that’s probably one way to kind of overcome a lot of the cons of digit nomadism a lot of people think it’s you know you’re moving around every month or so but most long-term digital nomads have some sort of home base, where they travel from and whatever type of combination that is whether it’s nine months spent in your home base and then that you know the rest of the time traveling around the world.
