Guide to Coming Home – Round the World Travel Guide

Guide to Coming Home – Round the World Travel Guide | Living as a Digital Nomad | Scoop.it

At some point, the vast majority of RTW travelers end up coming home. Sure, there are some who give up stability for a life of vagabonding. Some RTW travelers love the road so much that they never want to stop traveling, finding ways to stay on the road for an indefinite period of time (becoming a digital nomad or taking jobs teaching English are two good ways to stay on the road).

But most of us end up coming home and settling down again. Life on the road, while incredible, can get exhausting, and our natural instinct to settle down in some capacity eventually takes over. Just like going on the trip, there is some planning involved when coming home. You need to ask yourself so many different questions before heading home, and we’re here to guide you through the process.

Dealing With Wanderlust Now That You’re Home

Dealing With Wanderlust Now That You’re Home | Living as a Digital Nomad | Scoop.it

Returning home from an extended trip around the world is a major shock to your system. Dealing with re-entry into the real world and having reverse culture shock makes coming home difficult.

While coming home is definitely hard, there’s also the exciting side to it. You are excited to see everyone – your family, friends, co-workers (maybe) – and you are excited to eat and drink everything that you have missed in your time away. But all that – the honeymoon period of being home, the reverse culture shock, and re-entry – all fade away with time. For some it might only last a few months, but for others it can last a year or two. But after a while, most long-term travelers do get over their post-trip blues and excitement, and many settle into a largely normal life again.

22 things we miss about travel before 9/11

22 things we miss about travel before 9/11 | Living as a Digital Nomad | Scoop.it

THOSE OF US BORN BEFORE 1990 or so know that travel didn’t always feel like it does now. It’s not as evident with ground transportation, but if you fly from any major airport in the US, or anytime you fly internationally, it’s as if everything has become charged. There’s this matrix of fear and blame and guilt that didn’t exist before.

23 incredible new technologies you’ll see by 2021 | Matador Network | Living as a Digital Nomad | Scoop.it

WHEN LOOKING AT THE present as an indication of where we’ll stand a year from now–much less a decade–feeling optimistic may not come easy. We look out to the universe and see an infinite, lifeless abyss enfolding upon our own small pocket of civilization, while the people we look to for guidance and information seem to be little more than straight-faced bearers of bad news.

Yet while we can’t predict what the future holds for our unending political discourses, we can look at how far we’ve come with technology in merely the last decade and realize the present we know now will, very soon, find itself memorialized in nostalgia. Here’s some technology emerging down the road that’s poised to change your life on a much greater scale than any outcome of a political debate.

Renting an Apartment While Traveling

Renting an Apartment While Traveling | Living as a Digital Nomad | Scoop.it
These apartment rental sites list people’s apartments for rent. Instead of paying money for a hostel or hotel, you rent someone’s apartment. The booking process is like booking any type of accommodation. You go online, find a place you like, create an account, and book a place. After you are verified as not being an axe murderer, they connect you with the apartment’s owner (see safety below) and you now have a furnished apartment to stay in.

As an added bonus, most of the apartments listed on these sites are in highly local communities away from tourist centers, allowing you to get a feel for the local rhythm of life and eat at shops not catering to tourists.

Are stories all we really have in the end?

Are stories all we really have in the end? | Living as a Digital Nomad | Scoop.it

The world cannot mean anything to us except through stories. Through a gently applied weave of fiction passing through everything we do and think. Occasionally, those stories can become the foundation for whole lives. Or second lives – where the memories of one have been lost.

 

WHEN MARK HOGANCAMP WAS BEATEN to within an inch of his life outside a bar, he lost many of his memories of his life and himself. As a form of therapy, he created Marwencol, a fictitious Belgian village during World War II.
