Reflections from a corporate digital nomad

If you want to know about life as a “digital nomad” (I’m starting to find that phrase a bit funny and have to put quotation marks around it), there is an endless supply of blogs and articles purely dedicated to the subject. Great advice and funny experiences to learn from. Most of it, however, is focused on individuals doing their own thing. Freelancers, small startups, and bloggers.

My Remote Working Setup

The days just fly by, don’t they? Especially when you spend them in the little bubble of 30 degrees weather, yoga classes and raw food that is Ubud.

Life here is simple. I usually fill my days with reading and writing at different coffee shops, practicing yoga and occasionally hang out with people at the hostel. I have also joined in on the exhausting sport that is “Walking around the whole town trying to find an ATM that will give me money”, with limited success for days. (But this morning I actually found one that worked! BII Maybank on Jl. Raya Ubud, I love you. I might have clapped my hands and done a little dance in the ATM booth.)

I’ve also been working for two whole weeks now. So far it’s going well, better than I expected, and I wanted to share the basic setup we have. In case anyone is curious.  

Scotland

Scotland, you pretty thing you. It can go months when I do not think about you at all, but then it just hits me how much I miss you.

The nature. The history. The people.

There is just something about you that keeps me coming back.

The awesomeness of Costa Rica

Pura Vida!

If I don’t start this story with that phrase, no one would believe that I’ve actually been to Costa Rica. So, there it is. Pura Vida! A phrase that means “pure life”, but is basically used in every way possible. Hippies getting high all day? Pura Vida! Response from the mechanic who accidently drilled a large screw into the inside of your car? Pura Vida! (True story.)

These are a few of the highlights from my recent trip to Costa Rica, collected in one huge blog post.
