Bolivia to Italy, and San Francisco to Miami, André has traveled the world as a digital nomad since May 2017. Partly joining international travel groups like WiFi Tribe, and partly staying state-side with AirBnb or Outsite, as long as there is wifi, good food, and some latin music, André has all he needs.
Third Time's the Charm
If there was one day that was the day for the books, it was one Sunday in country #3: Costa Rica. It was the day André rolled an ATV and earned a battle-scar from mother earth. It was the day of the best beach-side shrimp quesadilla on the planet, followed by a peaceful hammock nap. It was the day of one of the most beautiful over-sea sunsets you've ever seen. It was the night the Pacific Ocean laughed at our bonfire and demolished it in a single unexpected wave. It was the night of smoking an unbelievable cigar, with a very special friend, with a spectacular ocean view, in Costa Rica! Needless to say, this day left a mark, but really, the whole month was absolutely unforgettable.
"Una limonada de coco por favor."
Well versed in the digital nomad ways by this point (it came with the beard), André returns to Colombia, but this time, not for vacation. Medellin was home for six beautiful weeks. With great coffee shops for working in, an amazing outdoor gym for working out, absolutely delicious food, a lively salsa dancing scene, all with a fantastic community of travelers, this popular city was "just right". There should be a new saying: "A limonada de coco a day keeps the doctor away." Don't know what that is? No worries, but it is so tasty, so refreshing, and unfortunately only exists in Colombia. Need a place to call home away from home? Medellin could be that place.
First Stop: Bolivia
Blown away by what the country has to offer, a lasting impression of the digital nomad lifestyle was imprinted in André's mind during his first six weeks in Bolivia. From the breathtaking landscapes (and stars) at the Salar de Uyuni, to the white-capped peak of Huayna Potosi, to the sea-like Lake Titicaca, Bolivia is one of the most unique places on earth. Plus the food. Oh my god, the food. How many salteñas can one eat for a meal? Not enough. How spicy can pique macho get? And just how many tequeños can one have before being too full for the main dish? The thin air of the city might be the only downside about this amazing place. And c'mon, they have llamas.
