We’ve all fantasised about it: packing up, planting ourselves overseas and becoming a digital nomad. Throwing traditional employment out the window and doing work that’s “location-independent” sounds great, but how do you actually do it? And where can you go? And how do you go about renting an apartment on a month-to-month basis?
Well there’s a new start-up that’s about to answer all those burning questions for you.
Roam bills itself as a network of global co-living spaces that provide everything you need to set yourself up as a functioning and productive digital nomad. With spaces in Bali, Madrid, Miami and more to come, Roam will effectively take care of the nitty-gritty, so you can focus on living and working harmoniously in a new city.
Instead of renting an apartment in a new city, explorers can sign one lease that lets them live around the world. In terms of amenities, residents have their own private bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as access to a shared co-working space and communal areas. It’s all about meeting and connecting to as many new people as possible.
Once you’ve had enough of one city, you’re invited to head on over to another corner of the world for another turn.
At each of the spaces, guests are treated to a reliably strong high-speed Internet connection, a chef’s kitchen, and great company.
For $500USD (about $667AUD) you can try it out for a week, at any of their locations worldwide. Find more info on Roam here. If you needed that extra push to help you on your way to a new nomadic lifestyle, this might just be it.[related_articles]24698,11565[/related_articles]
