Welcome once again to another incredibly magnificent issue of More Nomad News from Nowhere. Your weekly dose of everything vaguely interesting and relevant to the digital nomad way of life!
You want to know 10 affordable cities to live in? This article by fast company is for you.
There are no guaranteed tips to ensure you forge a successful career as a digital nomad but… Wait, what? There are? Oh, OK. Well like the man in the orthopaedic shoes I stand corrected. Apparently there are, they are here!
(N.B. These may or may not ensure you forge a successful career as a digital nomad.)
A drum roll please for the recipe of the week. *insert drum noise now……….* It’s Bacalhau à bras, A fine and fantastic traditional Portuguese dish. It’s incredibly easy to prepare, provided you can get the salted cod-fish and goes amazingly well with your white wine of choice. A must if you visit Portugal or if you can get your hands on the ingredients.
As we are on the subject food, I have been forwarded an e-mail from one of my many (one) digital nomad minions (Mowg1i in case you were wondering) regarding an article linked to in Nomad News from Nowhere issue 2. It was this one to do with street food. Anyway, the gauntlet has been thrown down by a rival article relating to street food. I am not here to be judge, jury and executioner, but you can be! Have a look and make your own mind up which is best.
(Big thanks to John Hawthorne for the link, muchly appreciated pal.)
Last one on food now I promise. This is good. I like this a lot. Budapest for vegan digital nomads. I am not a vegan personally but I am (nearly, a bit) married to (a sort of) one. If I would have known about this during my year-long stay in the beautiful city of Budapest it would have saved a lot of ‘where shall we eat’ debates. Agnes Krown, I doff my hat to you.
Oh, this could be fun. If you are an extreme digital nomader that lives life to the max you might want a heads up on all of the upcoming events for other extreme digital nomads this fall (that’s Autumn for everyone that doesn’t speak Americanisms). The good people at Remoters have very kindly put this list together to help. So yeah, if you’re an international jet setter or just a bit lonely, have a look.
Are you good at travelling and taking pictures? If you are you might want to enter this competition at The Guardian for the chance to (hopefully) win a trip for two to Costa Rica. Look, I know what you are thinking. Yes, I will accept invites provided we can listen to Morrissey, Manic Street Preachers, John Grant and The National on the way.
I absolutely abhor the name of this website. Maybe it has a meaning I’m not aware of but matador network? Seriously? Why you would want to be associated with a disgusting ‘profession’ entered only by cowards*. Alas, despite the name the article here is a useful eye opener for any potential digital nomad thinking about taking the plunge.
*there is no ‘but you have to be a brave man to face down a bull’ argument here. You have to be one thing and one thing only to be a matador. A massive c**t. I’m sorry, I’ll put the soap box away now. Obligatory Morrissey link here.
I mentioned it before but I was a little bit intoxicated and overly emotional but once again a massive thank you, thank, thank you to all of the twitter followers and Facebook likers out there. It’s you that make this worth doing (I’m not entirely sure how you should take that mind) so cheers. I’m forever in your debt*.
*Well not really, I mean all you did was click a button, I’m very grateful and if I can help you promote yourselves in any way I will but don’t think I will be coming round to ‘buttle’ any parties you throw or owt.
”ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE WEEK!”
A new feature here on More Nomad News from Nowhere (and one that will only run once. This is history people!). I am in the very fortunate position of being able to self promote myself here…
It’s not big, it’s not that clever but it’s mine and I like it.
Well, that’s that for another week. I hope you find something here to help pass a few Friday afternoon minutes at least. If you have anything you would like to contribute to More Nomad News from Nowhere please feel free to get in touch. As long as it’s not horrible or rascisty you’ve got a 99.9% chance at getting into the next issue!
Have a cosmic weekend.
