Google's Project Fi: The Digital Nomad's Cell Carrier

August 14, 2017

I've been using Google's Project Fi service for about 4 months now and it's one of those services that I wish I'd known earlier.

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 ...

An hour in a floatation tank (aka "sensory deprivation tank") in Bogota, Colombia

March 29, 2017

I've been doing a daily 10-minute meditation practice for about 4 months now. Just a few weeks ago, I decided to finally give a floatation tank a try.

Popeye Media Cafe - Kyoto, Japan

I decided to spend a week in Kyoto a few weeks ago before leaving South Korea as it was only an hour flight away. I had client work to do that week and since my client is 14 hours behind and the apartment I was staying in wasn't really comfortable to work in, I had to look for 24-hour cafes to work from.

One option is the 24-hour McDonald's and I did work ...

Working from cafes in Daegu, South Korea

December 22, 2015

I've been in Daegu, South Korea for just over 3 weeks now and all I've done here so far is work from cafes. The last few weeks had been very busy for me as my business partner and I wrap up our SaaS app. Plus I still have my regular freelance gig as well, which actually made South Korea for me a good place to be.

I was in Manila, Philippines before coming ...
