Teleworking in Santo Domingo
If you are someone who works online and you think that going around the world economically is difficult, it will be, as long as you want it to be. One of the goals of be a digital nomad, whatever work you do, it should be to comfortably pay for your trip and be able to work with the best possible productivity.
On the other hand, there are those who still do not generate enough income online to keep traveling long term, but this does not have to prevent you from making more money over time and you can go to your desired destination. Therefore, if you are not yet earning the amount you have in mind, do not worry. Start small, and if you are persevering, you will have achieved the goal that will allow you to leave less than expected.
Now you will wonder how much money it is necessary to generate once you are on the route. Of course, this figure will vary a little more or less depending on the travel style of each one, but I consider that With an approximate € 800 you are able to live as a digital nomad in many countries.
For € 800 to give you up you have to follow some of the advice I will bring mention in this post, which I have put into practice during the last two years and I am sure that they will be of great help if you intend to work online and travel.
1- Leave your comfort zone
Perhaps this is one of the biggest impediments of many digital nomads who begin to travel. At home you have all the comforts there are and there are, but they disappear when you are in a hostel or leased apartment. Maintaining the standard of living that you were familiar with before the trip is almost impossible, but it doesn't have to discourage you. After a couple of days on the route, you will forget everything you missed at the beginning.
2- Spend more time working in cheap countries
One of your goals when traveling and working on the internet is to stretch your budget as much as you can, especially in countries that offer you good value for money and a low cost of living. An apartment in cities like Berlin, Tokyo or New York can leave you at least € 800 per month, while for that same amount you will have all covered expenses (food, transportation, accommodation) in destinations such as Nicaragua, Peru or India. In addition, a cheap country allows you to save more from the account, which comes in handy when you decide to go to a more expensive nation.
Cook as much as you can on a trip
