Digital nomadism, a relatively new concept, has been a victim of harsh scrutiny. It first sprung up as an answer to the question, “You can work anywhere you have internet, right?
For this fast-growing group of people in today’s technological world, co-working spaces have become the favorite spots because they offer everything required for getting work done like a stable internet connection, good speed, steady flow of electricity, serendipitous encounters with a community of like-minded people, who most of the times help you explore a whole new world and notice things which could have escaped the eye and ofcourse, who doesn’t like to get all high together.
Co-living isn’t exactly a new concept. It emerged a long time ago and has been gaining a lot of popularity lately. Digital nomads are no misers.
They don’t want to save money by always being on the go. They simply want to be able to do their work in a more convenient manner.
People want to meet others, to discuss things which ultimately leads to some cool ideas and so living and working together is not a weird thought anymore.
Another reason why co-living options might be more appealing to those looking to travel is because of the exorbitant prices of housing, especially in places like Europe and the United States.
In ancient times, most people refused to take digital nomads seriously. Now, of course, things are very different.
It had a big stigma back then of being on the move all the time. Today, making digital nomadism into a lifestyle that one can seriously consider pursuing is being thought of.
While the concept of working on-the-go used to raise a lot of legitimate questions, many of them sound more like excuses today, since resources and answers can be found at the click of a button.
