I am in Lisbon for the DNX Festival: the conference for Digital Nomads. It is my third one.
Am I a digital nomad? No. Because my dog keeps me from being one. This is how the guilty one looks like:
I would call myself location independent, which feels like being a fake digital nomad. Although I am actually free to work from anywhere I want, in terms of places to live there might be some restrictions.
Because of the dog.
Since 4 weeks me, my spouse and our Frenchy live in Amsterdam again. Before that, we spent nearly three years in Berlin.
My company has been set up online. Which means we don't have a real office with real people anymore. My team works from coworking spaces or home offices all around the world.
An advantage is of this, is that it is easier to find good people. The further you look, the more skilled people you will find. Another advantage is that now I use the internet to travel more and not being limited to live and work from one location.
Travelling and living in different locations means more experiences. More experiences mean an exciting life.
I want to travel more because the dog does not allow me to be a full-time digital nomad...
Just kidding, I love my dog and am happy with all the freedom I already have created :)
