Koh Phangan, Thailand
We quit our jobs last year, started consulting our own Marketing clients and started traveling last October!
Finding beneficial working and living environments!
We wanted to travel home for the German summer but our flights got cancelled, so we will stay in Thailand for now until the situation calms down again.
The experience of creating our own businesses and the possible learnings from that was what triggered us (at a point of being unhappy in our 9to5 jobs). And of course also the opportunity to move and explore alongside of that.
So far, probably Thailand, especially Chiang Mai. The professional community there, the endless cafes and coworking spaces to work from, blazing fast internet everywhere and fine cuisine are probably some of the reasons.
Trying to create more that we consume. Will start my own (German) Podcast where I talk about my journey this April on @nomad.escape.podcast.
Traveling as a couple and prioritizing building up our business leaves less space for making new friends. But connection is important to us so we try to mix that in when we can!
Driving with our scooter for 3 hours, packed with luggage on one of the craziest mountain pass roads, arriving late evening just to find out our booked accommodation did not exist. Ended up in a dorm with an alcoholic and a turtle.
Go home, and brace for the following economic crisis. Given that, probably creating our space for less flight dependent travels. Which could mean moving into a campervan (planning in progress).
