5 of the best places to work remotely
| AD – sponsored post |
Living as a digital nomad with no fixed address has become more and more popular over the last few years and it’s not difficult to see why. When you make your living online by blogging or doing freelance work, you can just pick up your laptop and work from anywhere.
This allows you to see more of the world, without being tied down to an office job and you can live and work somewhere new every couple of months. Plus, imagine how inspired you feel waking up and working with some amazing backdrops.
There are a number of things that you need to take into consideration when you’re choosing where to work remotely including the internet speed (there’s no point running an online business where they’re still using dial up!), cost of living and, of course, the weather.
If you’re interested in becoming a digital nomad, there are plenty of courses available for things like starting a lifestyle business or building your brand. These courses will help you on your way to working remotely.
In the meantime, here are five of the best places to work remotely.
1. Canggu, Bali
Bali in Indonesia is really popular among digital nomads thanks to its abundance of co-working spaces. No matter where you like to work, a quieter office or a bustling coffee shop, there’s something here to suit everyone.
Plus there’s a huge yoga and wellbeing scene in Bali which means that you can start your day with an energising sunrise vinyasa and keep both your body and mind healthy while you’re hard at work. Canggu is beautiful and it’s close to lots of other islands which you can explore in your downtime.
2. Lisbon, Portugal
If a cultural city life is the one for you then look no further than Portugal’s capital, Lisbon. Here you’ll find creative artistic hubs in art galleries, museums and even pubs and so you won’t be short on inspiration.
The cost of living in this European city is slightly higher than the cities of Asia but there’s plenty to do here including amazing nightlife, surfing on nearby beaches and sampling local culture, food, beer and wine.
3. Buenos Aires, Argentina
A city full of diversity and incredible architecture, Buenos Aires has a great vibe. It’s not the cheapest city in the world to live in, but living on a budget here is definitely doable and there are countless coffee shops and co-working spaces, all with excellent wi-fi connections.
With vast green spaces, amazing music, dancing and food, Buenos Aires is full of inspiration for every type of creative.
4. Sydney, Australia
Sydney is one of my favourite cities in the world and makes our list thanks to its year round mild climate and good weather conditions. Anyone from the UK will know what I’m talking about when I say that this is very important!
Although the cost of living in Sydney is pretty high (it’s actually one of the most expensive cities in the world!) I think it’s worth it for the combination of laidback beach vibes and cultural city sights which will be available on your doorstep.
There’s a thriving start-up and entrepreneurial scene here which means you’ll be in great company and it’s a great city for networking opportunities.
5. Vancouver, Canada
Another pricey city cost of living-wise to make our list is Vancouver in Canada. I’ve chosen this one because I think that the accessibility to both mountains and beaches more than makes up for the expense. With beautiful scenery surrounding you on all sides, how could you not be motivated and inspired?
If you love an outdoor lifestyle then this this city is the one for you. All that fresh air is guaranteed to boost your productivity. There’s also an amazing grassroots arts scene which you need to check out during your time off too.
