After living in a few cities across the globe, Sofia is definitely one of my favorite ones! It’s a great place for digital nomads, it’s pretty, but most most importantly: it’s cheap! Nothing beats a nice cheap city. How did we end up choosing Sofia over any other place? We used the same pattern we do with most places: we found an apartment that suited our needs in here. We didn’t know much about the city before coming here. We had a bit of a bad experience with our apartment, which we thought was pretty nice, but didn’t end up …

Why Sofia Is the Perfect Destination For Digital Nomads

Of all the places we’ve been so far, there isn’t one that screams ‘Digital Nomad’ more than Sofia. If you want to work online and want to stay far from the beach and the humidity, Sofia is where you need to be. It’s Affordable As a European city, Sofia is absolutely affordable. We were able to find a great apartment on Airbnb right in the center of the city for only 500 euros. Trust me, that’s not something you find very often in Europe. The food is also almost half of what we were paying in Greece, which is an amazing …

 Last year, on this very day, I wrote my first blog post ever. (Come on, click. I know you want too. Go laugh at me!) And it was awful. Seriously, it didn’t say anything at all, haha! It was just a bunch of pretty pictures of my hometown, with maybe a 50 words description. I’ve grown a lot since then. Before, I used to write for my family and friends. Now, even though I still do, I also write for complete strangers so they can get the courage of being a digital nomad if that’s what they want to do. …

Chris and I always book our apartment through Airbnb. Or most of them anyway! They make it so easy to be a digital nomad! In the past, it used to be awful to find a place to stay for three months at a time. Now, all you have to do is go on airbnb.com, spend a few hours looking at the property, contacting the owners and booking the one that seems like the best deal. No more nights in a hostel so you can look around the town/city you’re in, to try to find a place to stay when you’re not …

Cost of Living in Athens, Greece

In Athens, Cost of Living by Virginie0 Comments

Trying to find a place to stay for three months in Europe that is relatively close to the beach and not too expensive is hard. Like they say: choose two! Europe, cheap or beach. When we found the apartment we’re in in Athens, we thought we made a pretty good deal: not too expensive and not too far from the beach, all that while being in Europe! But now that we’ve been here for almost a couple of months, let’s see how much it costs to live in the capital of Greece! We heard a lot of people saying that …
