As I’m slowly sipping away my coffee in my brand new (and very temporary) office, I get so excited about the place that I feel like sharing this, among other tips, with the entire world.
The vibe was inspiring and the view wasn’t bad either. I felt like spending the rest of my life there. -OK, now I’m going a little overboard.
Anyway, these are some of my best tips. Click to view!
Being able to work from anywhere is a huge freedom I’d never wanna give up, but háving to work from anywhere can be tough at times. Especially when there are not enough hours in a day and flights to catch too. My Hong Kong visit and many new projects came to me simultaneously and I rushed to find a comfy workplace.
Then I found Desk-one 溫室. It’s a tad bit pricey but if you count in the inspirational vibe, amazing wifi and ‘free’ drinks and snacks: worth it! They have 3 locations, all just as great. Visit their website for the most recent information.
Our absolute ABSOLUTE favorite ramen in Japan (or ever) was Ippudo 一風堂. They open from 11am til late night and their tonkotsu ramen never disappoint. It’s not for nothing it’s mentioned in every guidebook too. In Kyoto they’re next to the Nishiki market and priced between 900-1100 JP¥ per bowl full of heaven.
Ok, admit. I’m not much into electronics, and still visit Yodobashi Camera close to daily. There’s one very good reason for this: their overly relaxing massage chairs. On average better than a manual massage and best of all: for free! Sometimes they’ll shush you away after two 15-minute programs but in my experience they don’t really care (or dare)..
One (sort of) free cocktail every-single-day. For just 99 C¥ a month you can hit the town and explore Shanghai’s cocktail scene. I know.. We all have our favorite hangout spots, but what better way to enjoy some new ones than with a cocktail in your hand? Many of the listed places are pretty fancy and serve good quality alcohol too.
Very Sex and the City.
Who would’ve known that Plovdiv a wonderful place for digital nomads?! Not only does this city have a relaxed villagy vibe, friendly people and plenty of cozy cafes to work from, it is also extremely cheap and not located in the Shengen area (and thus perfect for American struggling with the 3-month Shengen-visa).
With it’s roughly 200 archeological sites and not-too-far distances to the Bansko ski-area and the Rhodope Mountains for some hiking, you definitely wouldn’t be bored in the weekends too.
There’s more tips to come, so stay tuned!
