Remote work is on the rise. If it’s possible to work from home, it’s also possible to work from anywhere in the world. This book will equip you with everything you need to know to become a digital nomad. And to become fully location-independent.
Based on my 13 years’ experience as a digital nomad. You will learn how to travel and work simultaneously, common pitfalls, where to go, and your complete packlist. All in one book.
In the first chapter, I will explain what a digital nomad lifestyle really looks like. And its contradictions to what we’ve been taught to believe – With that idyllic photo of the guy laying in a hammock, working under a palm tree on the beach. The reality can diverge greatly from our common vision of a “dream job.”
I broke it into two steps. In the first, you’ll learn how to move from working in an office to working remotely. In the next, how to move from working at home to working and traveling simultaneously.
The most important part of this book uncovers the three modes of travelling. You’ll learn how to permanently move to another place. How to escape winter and return home for summer. And finally, how to backpack and work simultaneously. This chapter focuses on the latter, as this is usually the most difficult step. In-depth guidance with a lot of first-hand tips.
In this new and updated edition of the acclaimed classic Interviewing Users, Steve Portigal quickly and effectively
A complete list of the absolute essentials for remote work. You’ll learn which accessories are a waste of money, which I recommend and which I advise against. Everything that will serve you both for backpacking and for on-site work. No affiliate links, just tried and tested stuff.
In this chapter you will learn how to choose your destination wisely. So that you don’t go bankrupt and can complete your work without problems. I’ll show you how I look for a place for a longer stay, what I pay attention to and what I avoid.
This is the longest part. A mini-guide to as many as 40 countries where I have personally worked remotely.

Remote work is limited to certain professions. If you work in the creative industry or in IT the transition will be easier. If you manufacture razors, work in a slaughterhouse or stamp packages at the post office from 9 to 5, then it’ll be rather impossible for you to do this type of job remotely. There are plenty of jobs that you can do from anywhere in the world. If you think it’s impossible, I’d recommend a little ingenuity.
Yes, I do. I am writing this book from India. I am travelling with my girlfriend who is a doctor.
No. I did not cover visa requirements and digital nomad visas. It’s just too complicated to describe each individual example. You might not be eligible to have a visa for a certain country, so my description might misguide you. Moreover, it changes so fast, that I would have to write the third edition of this book within the next few months. I’d prefer to give you evergreen content.
