Hi I’m Nick, I’ve been a digital nomad for 20 years (not non stop) since a very random trip to China in 2001 and my first backpacking trip to Berlin and Prague shortly after.
I currently live in Prague, used to live in Saigon and London and travel and work around 3 months a year, a good balance for me. I’ve also travelled for up to 18 months straight, which was about my limit. I’ve visited 73 countries.
I’m a big advocate of the Digital Nomad lifestyle and how it can enrich both your life and your bank account. I’m lucky enough to love my work (web development), and wake up every morning looking forward to whatever I do and able to choose the country I do it in. I think challenging travel is one of the keys to a fulfilling life.
I can fit everything I own in 2 bags (excluding my monitors and snowboard) and live in a tiny room in a shared flat in Prague and love it. I’m an advocate of very light extended travel with 1 carry on bag (my packing video: https://youtu.be/2wg2dPFjE5g)
I’m into FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early). I think this concept perfectly dovetails with being a Digital Nomad. One of the most important things we should teach kids at school is financial literacy, but we don’t, why?
I first bought Bitcoin in 2013 and think crypto will eat Finance (and not a moment too soon).
My podcast (and new YouTube channel) is about my thoughts and experiences being a Digital Nomad, what I’ve learned and my current direction with FIRE. Feel free to contact me with any suggestions, feedback or questions.
