Coffee Shops vs Coworking Spaces

December 2, 2019

I've been doing the digital nomad thing for almost 5 years straight now and I find that working in coffee shops works best for me.

Below is a list of reasons I can think of where a coworking space makes more sense:

  • you work full time and have a set schedule
  • you need a quiet area to ...

Renewing a US Passport in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I've recently renewed my US passport while traveling in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I actually still had about 10 months left before expiration but I decided to renew it earlier as some countries require at least 6 months validity before they let you in. I didn't want to wait until the last minute.

Extending your Thailand 30-day tourist visa by another 30 days in Bangkok (December 2017)

I first heard about this service when I was living in Bogota, Colombia earlier this year from another traveler. Currently, to sign up to the Project Fi service, you need to have a U.S. address. So when I visited family back in the U.S., I immediately signed up for the service. ...

Launching RemotePython.com: A job board and aggregator for remote Python jobs (and only remote Python jobs)

January 4, 2017

I recently launched RemotePython.com, a job board specifically for remote Python jobs. I aimed to release it on January 1 and was actually able to make it in time. There were a few minor last minute bugs I had to fix before the launch, but overall it went pretty well.

I started the project as I'm a freelance Python developer who can only work remotely due to my "digital nomad" lifestyle and constantly check ...
