Hello and welcome to yet another new feature (which may or may not last more than 3 editions) here at Digital Nomad Jobs. The first weekly edition of Nomad News from Nowhere. Here you will find a collection of basically anything I deem interesting enough to make the list useful, enjoyable and fun for you to read and for me to compile. Hopefully it will help you find handy hints and tips in a way you might find slightly more accessible than my own, er…. Unique style. Although, having said that, there will be smatterings of said style dotted throughout the post which you’ll have to put up with. Or not. I’m not forcing you to read it am I? All links are entirely work safe. Well, as long as your manager doesn’t catch you wasting time I guess. I hope this helps you pass 5 minutes in the afternoon.
Firstly, it was my birthday on Monday (thank you, it was great) and I received a gift all digital nomads and travellers with a thirst for something different should be aware of. The Atlas Obscura. It is a fantastic book for anyone that has an interest in all things obscure and loves to travel. I’ve only had it since Monday but I’ve already planned my next 8 months worth of adventures, I just need to get some money first… It covers the whole world and is well worth getting on your tablet or phone for a wonderful way to pass some time or plan some trips. I also got a Batman comic, although now I actually own a physical one (and the fact I’m 31 ) it’s 100% a ‘graphic novel’, some socks and a winter over shirt. Given that the current outdoor temperature here in blissful Tomar is 33 and we’re looking at 41 on Saturday I fear it will be a while until that one comes out of the wardrobe.
A new website for freelancers was brought to my attention this week, collabos. The philosophy of the site is fantastic and I really think this could be a great resource for anyone looking for remote work. Everyone is welcome so you’ve no need to worry if you are a novice digital nomad just starting out on your career. It’s well worth 5 minutes of your time to take a look.

I like Portugal, I don’t think that’s much of a secret. If for some inexplicable reason you don’t like Portugal read this article by Sienna Brown and let her convince you that Spain is the place to be.
The summer has arrived! Festival season has arrived! If you like the idea of getting hot and sweaty in a field with a few thousand other like-minded individuals plan your next travels with the help of either Music Festival Wizard or The Guardian. There are plenty all across Europe so I’m almost sure you’ll find one to suit your tastes. I would recommend ‘Wayne Stock’.
A lot of fun can be had here if you are a digital nomad with an eye for drawing or enjoy a doodle. To be fair even if you’re not you should check it out, it’s fun. Be aware that the results can come out looking a little demonic! PS. I’ve only used it on a laptop so I don’t know how well, if at all, it works with tablets and phones.
Finally…. Yes Macron! I’m a big fan. It’s just a shame that the politicians of my home land seem intent on buggering everything up.
Take it easy. Have a happy rest of the week.
