What I learned about the Future of Work by spending three days with 300 remote workers and digital nomads

I just wrapped up the 2019 edition of the Nomad City conference in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

I had the honor of sharing the stage here with other digital nomads and remote work advocates, including representatives from companies like Microsoft and Automattic (the people behind WordPress.com).

How to Find and Book the Perfect Airbnb Apartment as a Digital Nomad

As a digital nomad, you will have a much better experience if you stay in a private apartment or house, rather than a hotel, guesthouse, or hostel.

One of the major benefits of renting a private apartment is that, unlike hotels, apartments tend to be spread throughout the city, not all clustered in one or two main tourist areas. This gives you a much better opportunity to experience the place you are visiting as a local, instead of as an outsider. As a bonus, there’s a good chance that your apartment will be hosted/managed by a local who can give you a head start on finding the best places in the neighborhood.

Apartments typically have more space than even high-end hotel suites, and apartments almost always come with kitchens. Even if you are not planning to do any serious cooking, it’s nice to have space to prepare coffee, tea, breakfasts, and simple snacks.

I recommend using Airbnb for booking apartments. There are plenty of alternatives, but I like Airbnbm because you can use the same website anywhere in the world, the cancellation and other policies are clearly spelled out, and most importantly, you can read real reviews from other travelers and communicate with the host before you book.
