Type “travel work remotely” into Google and 35,900,000 results come up. Twitter is full of people who are “homeless by choice.” Companies like Remote Year organise everything. You just give them $27,000 (5k down and 2k a month for the first 11 months) and they arrange travel, accommodation, 24 hour access co-working space plus activities and events in each of the cities you stay in. You stay in each city for a month so you get more than just the tourist quick look experience.

There are so many people who use modern technology to live on the road that there is a term for them, “digital nomads.” This May DNX will be having their second conference in Berlin.
