The digital nomad lifestyle of being able to slow travel while working from anywhere is a dream experience that many people want to explore for several reasons. It gives busy remote working professionals a meaningful opportunity to integrate a sense of adventure into their life; it gives an opportunity to learn about the nuances of a destination deeply; and it also gives what many consider to be an unparalleled sense of freedom.
While the digital nomad life is extremely popular (currently estimated at 35 Million people and growing!), it doesn’t come without challenges to start a nomadic journey in a new destination.
Logistics wise- it takes time to figure out where to stay, how to get around, and to plan out the most interesting local experiences to do. Socially, it takes time to make connections and build friendships with locals and fellow nomads in town. Impact wise, it can be a challenge figuring out the best way to meaningfully support the local community while you’re there.
Enter Adventurely & Insured Nomads.
