Have you ever heard of the Bader Meinhof syndrom? It’s a phenomenon in which you start noticing a certain word more and more after you’ve heard about it for the first time. I experienced this after reading about digital nomads. I can clearly recall stumbling upon this way of living on a blog about 4 years ago; I had just graduated and returned from a backpacking trip in Asia.
It was time to enter the 9-to-5 world and look for a job, but instead I found myself searching the web about this crazy concept of ‘location independency’. It became my mission to make it work.
After years of planning and dreaming, I finally decided it was time to take the big leap: I moved out of my apartment, sold most of my stuff, gave away my two cats and may officially call myself a ‘digital nomad’ now.
