Digital nomads are on the rise, especially as the world faces the ‘Great Resignation’ where office workers are starting to resign. The freedom and flexibility of remote work offered during the pandemic has allowed us all to rethink our careers, goals, and work / life balance, and it has become increasingly difficult for employers to bring their teams back into the office.
And why would you? … Return to the office? When you can be working from Italy one month, and Greece the next?
Visas used to be one of the biggest issues for digital nomads, because tourist visas were capped at 30 days, meaning your work routine was constantly disrupted. But now more and more countries are enticing remote workers to stay for an extended period of time, and 50+ countries now offerr generous long term visas.
As a digital nomad, the cost of visas can really add up if you’re moving around a lot. So here we’ve compiled a list of the cheapest.read more

Your bag is one of the most important things to get right when you’re traveling. Make a smart decision, and your trip becomes a breeze; you can find things easily, your gear is protected from the weather, and there’s much less risk of it being stolen.

Digitalization has made it possible for us to store a significant amount of personal and financial information online. As a result, we no longer need to worry about having the right paperwork and documents for travel, making travel even more convenient.
But with every good comes the bad. The more your personal information is accessible online, the more likely you are to become a victim of identity theft.
Identity theft occurs whenever someone else uses your personally identifiable information (PII) without your permission and with malicious intent. You may think that only naive people fall victim to identity thieves, but the unfortunate truth is that even the most cautious individuals are not immune to this risk. So how do you protect yourself?read more
In the world of cryptocurrency, trading bots are built to do the work of trading on behalf of the owner. Which makes them the perfect choice for digital nomads looking to automate passive streams of income.

As an active traveler I’m constantly pulling muscles, carrying far too heavy packs on my back, and dealing with stiffness from failed attempts to sleep on a plane. And if I haven’t got sore feet from exploring, it hasn’t been a successful day!
So I’m now a big fan of massage guns, which saves a ton of money on spa treatments while traveling, especially since physical therapists like Bob & Brad have an excellent compact, portable range.
While the smallest massage gun I’ve found to date is the Bob & Brad Q2 Mini Massage Gun, which ranks as a personal favorite, their next massage gun up is the C2. With more power than the Q2, and a bigger body, though still incredibly compact and lightweight, the C2 massage gun is also a fabulous choice. Here is our review.read more
Land based casinos used to be some of the biggest tourist draws for a country, with whole cities like Las vegas and Macau popping up in the middle of otherwise barren deserts, solely to meet the tourist demand. Though nowadays the online world is challenging the traditional land based experience, and you can cozy up in a luxury hotel room for the same type of thrills.
Live casinos is a relatively new form of gambling which is a hybrid of online gaming and a land based experience; you don’t have to visit the physical site and can log in from your device, though it’s still played with real life dealers, against other real life humans, and the action takes place in real time.
So you could be in Sydney, while playing in Vegas, without having had to pay for (or sit through!) the flight!
If you’re considering trying your luck at a live casino while traveling, or joining a live casino in another country, from home, here are some of our winning tips and secrets.read more
For many years, bingo has become known as a game played in retirement homes by seniors and middle-aged women. Though this stereotype is incorrect, and in many countries the game is more cultural than their (other) most popular ball sports; for instance, more money is spent every year in the UK on bingo tickets than it is on football!
Bingo is a game appreciated for its simplicity and social form, and around the world it’s played in pubs, drinking halls, cruise ships, and, in Italy, where it was invented, it’s still played over pizza every Saturday.
If you’re traveling, Bingo is also a really fun way to practice your language / number skills with locals. But with the closure of many land based bingo halls, can you still partake in the fun in the new digital era?read more
When it comes to travel essentials, there are none more important than your phone (your passport is strong competition though!). And when it comes to essentials for your phone, travelers need three main fundamentals; a sturdy phone case, headphones (because the whole plane doesn’t need to hear the soundtrack to Bridgerton), and a gimbal.
A gimbal is a handheld device that allows your camera to rotate smoothly along an axis, so you can take smooth travel video (without the camera shake). There are a million of them on the market, but only one which is truly worthwhile for travel.
The PowerVision S1 is a stylish and portable smartphone gimbal with easy magnetic mounting, AI tracking, gesture control for hands free recording, a built-in tripod, and a portable power bank with wireless phone charging, all packed into a compact device that fits in your pocket.
If you use your phone camera for travel photos and video, or take video calls when you’re abroad, the PowerVision S1 is a gamechanger. Here are 12 reasons you’ll love the world’s smallest smartphone gimbal.read more
So you’re on vacation and spending a good chunk of time travelling from destination to destination, practically bored thinking about how to kill some time. Hangman on paper napkins just isn’t cutting it for you anymore, and you’ve listened through the soundtrack of Bridgerton 5 times, so what else can you to in your downtime?
While vacations are usually an escape from your habits of everyday life, sometimes incorportating parts of your daily routine at home can be a stress relief when you need to distract yourself while traveling, or unwind.
Online games have become many people’s go to ‘sport’, especially since even tech-friendly camping means you can charge a phone using the sun! But can you still play these if they’re classified as casino?read more
