The world is my office: why I chose to become a digital nomad worker - The Guardian

From copywriters to computer programmers, people with online-based jobs are seizing the chance to take their work on their travels

I dismissed the idea at first. Over a picnic in south London’s Brockwell Park last May my friend Tom asked whether I had ever considered leaving the UK behind and continuing my football journalism career abroad.

“Nice thought, mate,” I replied. “But I can’t see it happening. How would I make it work? Besides, I’d miss you too much.”

That last bit remains true, but the conversation got me thinking, and a few months later I became a digital nomad – loosely defined as someone who uses the internet to work remotely without having a fixed home base. It’s the best decision I have ever made.
