The thing about being a nomad is, when you're near the end of your stay in a city, you need to figure out what's next. Today was our day to figure that out. We have 2 weeks left in Sevilla until we're out. We usually try to book around a month in advance so that there are still good Airbnb options and flights available.
Until today, the leading choice was Bucharest, Romania. Somewhere we haven't been! There are bunch of things we consider when looking for our next city.
- Nomad/startup community
- Fairly cheap living
- Great wifi
- Cheap and convenient flights
- Bonus: We haven't been there before
Bucharest is outside the Schengen area and it has super fast wifi. However, flights weren't ideal. They were expensive and inconvenient (long layovers). We also had to consider how we would get to Croatia (for out next team retreat!).
We ended up choosing Las Palmas, in Gran Canaria. Great for nomads like us and a chance to experience a bit of island life.
We ended booking our whole chain of flights. From Sevilla to Las Palmas to Dubrovnik to London and finally, back to Toronto. Our second leg in Europe will be over in a couple months. A little sad to think about but it's always nice to be home.
