Anyone have experience being a digital nomad? Required to be in office a couple days a month and want to travel the other weeks. Any insight, tips, etc that I should think of before pursuing?

Always have a plan b and c for a place to work with strong internet and appropriate setting (either for calls or for you to be productive). Youd be surprised how many times you end up needing plan c.

It’s incredibly rewarding yet incredibly challenging. There’s nothing glamorous about Vanlife, except the first few days when everything is clean.
You drive at night and work during the day. Baby wipes are your friend. 🤣

But… I’ve gotten to take my kids across the country and work while doing it. Wouldn’t trade that experience for anything. Ok, the smell of teenagers feet get to you after awhile.

Invest in a noise blocking headset (Apple AirPods Max) or Loop earplugs are both fantastic.

Laundry, that’s you’re biggest challenge. I got a mini washer and dryer for my van. The laundromats I visited had about half the machines broken, so it was a good option. I suggest a capsule wardrobe. Look it up, you’ll thank me later.

Eating well is hard while traveling, but you come up with something that works for you.

Last tip: never tell your company how much you travel. I lose the job every time. My theory is this: I’m a remote worker, I get my job done. Where I do it doesn’t matter as long as it’s stateside.
