Working from a beach or beautiful countryside of some faraway country? Yes, please.

Welcome to the life of digital nomads. These professionals take their jobs on the go and work from anywhere in the world using their computers and phones. Unlike remote workers that stay home, digital nomads make it a point to travel.

For many digital nomads, the lifestyle is a temporary choice that lasts several years at most. Others have made it a lifelong commitment and plan on doing it as long as their work and bodies permit. No matter the duration of the journey, it’s certainly a lifestyle unlike any other.
