Research your destination
When you're traveling as a digital nomad, the most important thing you can do is research the places you visit.
This isn't just something you should do because it's fun (although it is pretty fun!). It's also a way to ensure that you have a positive experience in your destination, which will make it more likely that you'll want to return there again.
Don't wait until you're on the road to start figuring out how to make your life work. Plan your trip and then set up your business so that it can work while you're on the road.
You need to be ready for anything. For example, if you're going to be in the area for three months and then will be moving on to another city for six months, you should plan ahead so that you don't end up wasting money on things that are only useful for a short amount of time.
Consider the cost of living
As a digital nomad, you should consider the cost of living in your chosen destination.
How much you spend on rent, groceries, transportation, and other expenses will impact how much money you have left over to save or spend on leisure activities. You might think it's easier to save money while traveling because you don't have a fixed location—but this isn't always the case. If you don't plan carefully, your budget can quickly become out of control.
Grab your work essentials
When it comes to traveling and working on the go, one essential item to consider is a sustainable work bag that can not only hold your laptop but also serve as a portable work desk.
First, it is vital to consider the materials and construction of the bag. Look for bags made from sustainable materials such as organic cotton, recycled polyester, or vegan leather. AKAP’s La Mesita is made from ethical vegan leather. Additionally, look for durable bags so that they will last for a long time and reduce the need for frequent replacements.
Next, think about the features that are important for your specific needs. Are you looking for a bag with a particular type of shoulder strap or handle? How important is the size and weight of the bag to you? AKAP’s La Mesita can be carried in multiple ways, it can also be hooked onto your luggage for easier mobility.
Another factor to consider is the bag's ability to serve as a portable work desk. This could include features such as a built-in laptop stand and a built-in mouse pad. This can be a great way to work comfortably in a variety of settings, from coffee shops to airports.
Finally, think about the overall style and design of the bag. It should be functional, comfortable, and easy to carry, but also stylish. You might want to choose a bag that will complement the way you dress and the style of work you do. AKAP’s La Mesita workspace bag has 8 different earth-tone shades to match any persona and it is also the perfect travel buddy that will keep your stuff organized, safe and accessible.
