Digital Nomads: It Takes PLANNING

While this lifestyle can be exciting and rewarding, it also comes with its challenges. Digital nomads have to deal with issues such as finding reliable internet connections, managing their finances and taxes across multiple countries, and dealing with the loneliness that can come with being away from home and friends for long periods of time. Nonetheless, this trend is rapidly growing and many people are choosing to pursue this lifestyle.


Here are my criteria for the DIGITAL NOMAD LIFESTYLE:

MONEY/ Income

Biking everywhere 

No car necessary

Fresh market within biking

Water views 



Immersion in Culture 

Language is accessible, somewhat easy to use!!! European Portuguese is tricky..

Digital nomads are often attracted to this lifestyle because it allows them to experience new cultures and lifestyles, meet new people and gain new perspectives while still maintaining their professional lives. They are able to work from anywhere in the world as long as they have an internet connection and a laptop.

Learn the culture. Portuguese are VERY POLITE

Bureaucracy:  very slow as to processing anything! It’s very common to see the Portugese idly chatting even at checkout.
