SURRENDERING TO THE DIGITAL NOMAD EXPERIENCE
Q: WHAT IS YOUR VISION OF DIGITAL NOMAD EXISTENCE?
A:​ ​Many digital nomads today are attracted to the lifestyle more so due to the word “digital” than the notion of nomadism. But in the term “digital nomad” there are indeed two words. The whole thing has become quite trendy these days, almost a status symbol in its own right. But the full expression remains a combination of these two concepts. You can’t embrace digital nomadism without accepting both its sides.
“The digital can be controlled, but it’s impossible to control nomadism. One is a means to an end. The other a way of life. One requires controlling your medium. The other requires surrendering to your experience.”
If you are not ready to let go, you are not ready to become a digital nomad to the fullest. At the end of the day what matters is that ​you​ are in agreement with yourself, that ​you​ blossom. And by you, I mean you as you truly are, not your social media status.
Q: WHAT HAVE BEEN SOME OF YOUR BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENTS AS A DIGITAL NOMAD?
A:​ ​Without hesitation, the greatest disappointments in a nomad’s life are related to the human. The abundance of people passing through our lives does not necessarily compensate for the absence of others. It took me a long time before I truly comprehended this.
I would not go so far as to call this a disappointment, however. It’s a lesson. Knowing this allows me to value the people in my life even more today. Those who pass through. And especially those who have remained.
Q: WHAT ARE SOME ADVANTAGES AND CHALLENGES OF TRAVELING IN EUROPE? A:​ ​I have traveled much more in Asia than in Europe. Personally, Europe has never presented me with a particular challenge in terms of adaptation. So I would say that for someone like me who is already familiar with Europe, it can be an advantage to start here.
But you also have to choose your reason for travel: Do you want a nomadic lifestyle that lets you take it easy? Or are you looking to push yourself beyond your own comfort zone and test your limits by experimenting with completely new places and new practices that will foster your personal development?
