What's a Digital Nomad?

"Digital nomad" is a term that generally refers to people who work remotely and live a location independent lifestyle, usually involving significant amounts of international travel. 

There are many different types of nomads. Some are on a career gap year, while others live the lifestyle full time. Some are freelancers, some work "traditional" remote jobs, and others are entrepreneurs. Some digital nomads visit a new country every week, while other "slomads" stay in a location for months or even years at a time.

In this Digital Nomad Resource Center, you'll find all the many resources and articles we've written over the years to help aspiring or current digital nomads.

How I Became a Digital Nomad

In 2016 I left my job as a corporate lawyer to travel the world. I was only planning to travel for a year, but I just loved life on the road so much that somewhere along the way I decided I didn't want to stop. 

So I completely re-invented myself and my career to focus on location-independent income sources. This blog, Travel Lemming, is my most well-known project but I've worked in everything from freelance writing to fitness products to software start-ups. 

Oh, and I've done it while traveling and working in some pretty cool places! I've spent months living and exploring extraordinary places like Tbilisi, Buenos Aires, Budapest, and Kyiv.
