Travel and work remotely

Have you ever dreamed about traveling and at the same time work from anywhere around the world? Come on, who doesn't! This is a traveler's dream, which for most is too good to be true. In fact, there are plenty of sites that will help you find ways in how you can work for your current job which in turn can eventually turn it into a work from home job! Or if that's not the case, these companies will help you find a job where you can practically work from anywhere around the world. I have found these sites based on hours of research and they have been proven to be useful to many digital nomads. I would do some research on each one to see which one program works for you. I'm just here to offer you the sites that do offer these types of services, where you can work remotely and at the same time, travel and explore this beautiful world around us. Good luck in finding that dream job that involves traveling!

Roam might call New York City its home base, but the name says it all.  Founded in 2015, the company offers easy access to co-living-slash-working spaces around the world.  With a little planning, remote workers can hop from London to Tokyo, Bali to Miami and join a network of like-minded traveling professionals at each stop. The crowd is a mix of freelancers and entrepreneurs -- really anyone with the travel bug.  Thanks to spacious digs -- somewhere between a hotel and a house -- there's room for meetings, private conference calls, a pool and intimate events.  Starting at $500 a week, the program also provides a handful of shared amenities: tried-and-tested Wi-Fi, co-working spaces, comfy Eames chairs, international power outlets, a kitchen and private rooms.

The company has been running retreats since 2014 in locations all over the world, including the likes of Vietnam, Estonia, Thailand, PortugalTokyo, Barcelona and Taipei.  Each retreat is tailored to full-time employees, entrepreneurs and freelancers -- and participants can join for stretches of anywhere from two to 16 weeks at a time.  The community is a selling point for many developers, and Hacker Paradise encourages collaborations and passion projects along the way.

 

With about 40 people in each program -- each with his or her own network -- there's ample opportunity to share expertise and connections.  To give employers some piece of mind and hold workers accountable for their personal goals, the program offers oversight and task management services.  The program also provides a premium setup -- private accommodations with kitchenettes, weekly lunches, opportunities for demos and collaboration, workshops and easy access to a local co-working hub.

Launching in September 2017, WiFly Nomads is gearing up for its first getaway in Bali, Indonesia.

 

Targeting aspiring remote workers and those looking to make a career adjustment, WiFly Nomads programs offers "lifestyle skills" workshops to help budding digital nomads navigate location independence for the long-haul.

Workshops cover everything from launching online businesses to finding remote jobs and building a personal brand. In addition, each digital nomad will be invited to take part in a skill-sharing workshop, attend networking events and mingle with experts across various industries.

While promising to be a hard-working two weeks, the program also plans to provide a lineup of social events, dinners and weekend excursions for the 20-30 participants.

Of course, a major draw is the destination itself. Famous for its gorgeous temples, remote cliffside surf spots, rice terraces and beaches, this romantic Indonesian island might make it hard to focus.

A long list of excursions -- from yoga to sunset dinners -- takes worker bees outside the office to experience all the perks of a digital nomad lifestyle.

There are co-working spaces nearby -- Outpost, Hubud Coworking Space and Dojo Bali -- and the private villas come fully equipped with kitchenettes, Wi-Fi and a pool.

Geared toward young professionals and creative types, WiFi Tribe typically travels in packs of 12 to 20 people, often including photographers, writers, designers, musicians, developers and entrepreneurs. 

Nomadic by nature, the group moves monthly to a new city -- occasionally sticking around for six weeks.

The group lives together in a large villa or apartment, where they share communal work spaces and living areas.

There are usually co-working spaces nearby, but often nomads simply head to a cafe to slay deadlines over a cup of great coffee.

Come weekends, most participants take the opportunity to explore the area.

Depending on the locale, the group may go hiking, learn to surf, take a road trip or simply taste-test the regional cuisine.

Instead of a year-long commitment, WiFi Tribe designs its memberships around flexible monthly stints, starting from $800 a month.

The program is currently set up in South America, Central America, Asia and Europe with Africa to come in 2018.

Both MIT graduates, the two co-founders have streamlined the experience -- lining up inspiring destinations, co-working spaces, private accommodations, travel logistics and concierge-like advice every step of the way.

Trips have taken teams to beautiful destinations around the world, from idyllic beach getaways, such as the islands off the southern coast of Thailand, to vibrant cities like Medellín, Colombia.

While DigitalOutposts retreats certainly encourage productivity, there's also plenty of time to explore.

In the past, travelers have biked through rice terraces, gone canyoning down waterfalls, or learned to cook Thai food.

Two-week trips start at $1,295, while two-month experiences start at $1,695 per month.
