Tomorrow we will have been travelling for six months. It has gone by really quickly and we are feeling very comfortable with our new digital nomad life. We’ve been taking it slowly, but that’s the beauty of having no time limits. We spent three weeks each in Brazil and Paraguay and now over four months in Argentina.
August has been a quiet month. We left our Salta apartment to housesit Leigh from The Future is Red‘s house in a rural area about 12km outside of the city. Without a car we were pretty isolated so we didn’t do much other than work, play with Mani the puppy in the huge garden, sit in the sun and go for the occasional walk or bike ride.
After two months in the Salta area we had itchy feet and were ready to move on to Bolivia, but as Simon is in the middle of a big job we decided to move back to our Salta apartment (the jacuzzi was calling us) until it was finished. The current gorgeous hot weather is certainly making it easier to stay. We should be heading to Bolivia next Monday though.
Never Ending Voyage Around the Web
This month this is where we were found around the web.
Another honour was being included in our first Spanish blog. Pablo from Viaje Completo discusses travelling as a vegetarian (he is a very rare Argentine vegetarian!) and mentions that even though he lives in the city he found our post on vegetarian restaurants in Buenos Aires useful.
Gap Year Escape included us in a list of 30 Couple Travel Blogs. Check out some of the other great blogs included.
We gave advice on our favourite country India in the Simonseeks post on Top Independent Travel Destinations.
Digital Nomad Update
New work came in this month for Simon: designing and building a website for a Goan hotel, and there is more work lined up for September. The challenge now is going to be working in Bolivia with really slow internet.
Next week we’ll be revealing our income and expenses from our first six months as digital nomads.
