Writing Round-Up: A Year of Not Blogging

So, I’m probably the worst travel blogger in bloggerdom. I’ve been writing in this blog for 6 years, but months and months pass by without a peep. And yet, that’s usually a good sign—it means I’m keeping busy; it does not mean I’m not writing.

An Excerpt from My eBook

Freelancing on the Road:
A Digital Nomad Guide

Preface

Digital nomad is a term that seems to have come out of nowhere, even to me, and I am a digital nomad. The digital revolution, which has changed almost every aspect of our lives in a rather short time, has changed the way we travel and the way we work. At its most basic, digital nomadism is the marriage of digital work and travel. And thanks to the information side of the digital revolution, there is a wealth of resources available (as well as package deals and other schemes) to help you get your very own #digitalnomadlife.

My Digital Nomad Anniversary: Change for the Better

Five years ago today, I boarded a flight to Reykjavik with far too much stuff and a computer. From there, I went to London and then on to Thailand, Macau, Singapore, China, Cambodia, India, Dubai, Spain, France, and Italy. Later my travels would take me back to Asia and Europe, onwards to South America and Central America, and of course, to many destinations in the United States and Canada—sometimes with my computer, sometimes without.

And the cost, availability, and timing make flights a reasonable alternative for getting around the sub-continent. While air travel is air travel almost everywhere you go (except, perhaps, in Pakistan!), there are a few peculiarities in India. Here are a few things new visitors to India should know before they head to the airport.
