Remote working tips: how to actually work while traveling

Make sure you have a comfortable and dedicated workspace

Remote working has allowed me to live in a wide range of sometimes very cool housing. Airbnb is ideal for the short term, and services like Landing and Blueground are emerging to offer long-term furnished rentals.

While it’s easy to find a place, finding one that work-friendly is another story. Look for places that have a desk, or at least a good kitchen table with chairs – not all Airbnbs and a few hotels have one.

“My # 1 tip would be to book an Airbnb or a hotel with an office, or find a coworking or coliving space,” says Marina Gigis, who helps women build travel-centric businesses through her company Livin Vivaciously. “Cafes can be fun, but the internet connection is not always reliable and it can be inconvenient. Plus, if you find a great coworking space, you can meet people who are doing the same thing as you and potentially become your travel / work companions! “

Nicole Vasquez, co-founder of Deskpass, reminds that your environment directly impacts your productivity. “I learned many years ago that working from a beach or a pool didn’t work. Your legs are sweating, you can’t even see your laptop screen, so it’s not the ‘oh, I work in a pool in Bali’ glamor. To be nomadic, yes, I work in exotic places, but during the day when I am actually working, I am indoors, on Wi-Fi, connected to electricity.
