  • Lisbon is the next remote work hub of Europe. There’s many reasons why I think that:
    1) it already has somewhat of a startup/tech scene because of the annual Web Summit conference
    2) which means internet is fast, and there’s lots of meetups and it’s easy to make friends
    3) it’s relatively affordable for foreigners compared to Spain and the rest of Europe
    4) Portuguese people are super friendly, a lot more friendly than in the rest of the Mediterranean and Europe
    5) Lisbon is ideal to go on day/w

  • Ericeira will be the Canggu of Europe, I think.
    It’s the surf capital of Europe, so it has the surfers. It has the hipster cafes with nice coffee, although they are quite tiny and need to be bigger.
    It has amazing restaurants, especially sea food but also typical hipster food.
    It has the same type of people you’ll see in Canggu and Bali.
    Right now there’s a coworking space called Salt but it’s small, cramped and insufficient. What Ericeira needs is a big moder well designed coworking spac

  • We spent January in Santa Cruz and had a fantastic stay. The people we met were nice, the weather was fantastic, prices for things were reasonable, good selection of locally grown produce, good internet connectivity, there were lots of outdoor activities to do, and not too touristy or crowded (at least Santa Cruz in January). Other parts of the Island felt more resort-like and it wasn’t so easy to get to places outside of Santa Cruz without a car.

  • I spent one year in Istanbul and it’s absolutely amazing. The city is really safe, I went back home really late during the night, walking, without any problem. Parties are really fun and there are all kinds of spots to have fun (bars, nightclubs, restaurants…). The city has a lot of cafés to work at and most of them have free and reliable wifi. Definitely recommend!

  • Stayed one month in January. In which it is one of the few places in the EU with absolute tshirt-weather. I liked the nomad and expat scene, which is lively. There’s always something to do: sailing, markets, tapas nights, meetups. The transport system is good, with a cheap city bike system, good bus system for island travel and ferries for inter-island travel. Each island is a bit different in climate and culture so go and see a few. I especially liked the hiking in different micro-climates. For

  • Better than Lisbon, much more cozy and welcoming. You can find cheaper places in the “other side of the bridge”, in the municipality of Vila Nova de Gaia. Public transports works and is pretty convenient, most part of the city is covered by tram stations. Beaches are freezing cold but nice for a running. Don’t miss the daily sunsets in the garden nearby the bridge, eating pastel de nata and drinking a bottle of Porto Wine. But please, don’t clap your hands to the sun — only Brazilian t

  • Didn’t plan to come to Zagreb, and so had no expectations. Turned out to be a lovely, liveable city, so much so that I extended my stay by several weeks! Contrary to some of the comments from a year ago, it is now very vegan friendly, cards are universally accepted, steady WiFi si abundant, and many other people are working from coffee shops. The city is very walkable, and more affordable than Split or Dubrovnik.

  • Berlin is overall a great city to be.
    Food is cheap and everywhere, easy to go out and have fun/meet for business.
    Rent has crept up but still far better value than where I came from.
    Internet: 36 EUR/month get me 450/40 mbps (cable -> DOCSIS 3.0)
    Public transport is 2.70 EUR/ticket.
    No woman I know has said they felt unsafe. Some really odd, xenophobic sounding comments on here.
    Biggest downsides IMO:
    service quality at restaurants — not that people are rude, but they don’t seem to particular

  • Nice but also not nice. British normie tourist place with a few hipster/surfer cafes like Abigail’s, Coffee & Waves and Black and White. There’s not much else to do here and the town lacks class and nice hotels. I’d skip this and go to Ericeira instead.

  • London is the best city in the world — you just can’t do it on a budget. It’s got an amazing tech scene but ALSO world class media, fashion, finance, art industries and many others. If you don’t want to live in a tech / expat mono-culture then it’s for you. It is a genuine melting pot with a huge range of nationalities and cultures living together (the US has a large number of nationalities but there seems to be hard segregations between them geographically, economically, culturally — so they

The island of Sao Miguel is stunning, and its warm, friendly people, fantastic gastronomy, English speaking (due to influence from the US in the islands) population, its low VAT (lower than in the Mainland) and cheap (comparing to Lisbon) cost of living make Ponta Delgada a city which is like no other

  • I spent 8 days in Valencia with my boyfriend for new years. We really enjoyed it honestly. We found the city quite walkable, even though it’s relatively big, very bike-friendly, felt super safe riding around. Didn’t find the public transport to be bad at all, but then again we come from a capital with much shittier public transport. Food is affordable, there’s tons of cafes and restaurants everywhere (they were constantly full though). My biggest issue was that barely anyone speaks any English,

  • I’ve lived in Munich for six months during my Erasmus internship.
    It is a great place to live generally, offering high quality of life, and it would hands down be the best city to live in Germany if:
    -It wasn’t expensive af, especially rent prices
    -It wasn’t almost impossible to find a place to rent (like literally the only way to find is through acquaintances)
    -Bavaria was less bureaucratic and more tech-progressive
    -It had more… young people; much of the youth there is because of the two of

  • Edinburgh is one of my favorite cities and I’ve spent quite a bit of time here. It’s charming, friendly, beautiful, and walkable, and has a range of cafes and coffeeshops with fast wifi. The downsides: it’s pretty expensive (housing especially), and there doesn’t seem to be much of a nomad scene. The general tech scene seems to be smallish but growing (CodeBase seems cool), but not many nomads seem to come here.

  • Like all cities that have lots of tourists, it’s best to explore a little and get off the well beaten track. There are literally thousands of small cafes and bars that have free, fast WiFi, cheap coffee and good kebabs.
    If you stay in the absolute cheapest part of town, you will get a different vibe. There are a lot of AirBnB springing up and in the off-season these are very reasonably priced.

  • I lived in Brno for 6 months working as an expat. I am from US and have lived in NJ and NYC and been to almost every major city in the US. Compared to US Cities, this place just works, it’s very easy to live here and the public transportation is wonderful. It was also extremely cheap compared to any US city and I could afford to eat out every meal and go to the fancier restaurants on my US salary.

  • Although I would not praise Cologne as the top destination for digital nomads I have certain doubts about some negative aspects listed here.
    Hospitals: How can hospitals be pretty bad if Germany has one of the best medical systems in the world? This judgments compares it with remote 3rd world cities which is by definition not logical. Germany, and therefore also Cologne, has most likely the best emergency system in the world (ambulance must arrive within max. 12 minutes — independent of traffi
