About me

Hi! I am Pol, a Digital Nomad

This is where I write about my trips and my work

I am from Barcelona, Spain. Three years ago I was living in Los Angeles, USA. I loved the city and my job, but I wanted to travel. So I quit. Since then, I have travelled all around Asia, America and Europe. And you know what? This lifestyle has not only made me happier, but wealthier as well.

 

 Currently I am in: Barcelona, Spain

 Next Stop: Bangkok, Thailand.

FAQ

So what do you do exactly…?

I work in digital marketing. This includes Pay-Per-Click, SEO, Web Design and Email Marketing.

Where do you live?

Although I am from Barcelona, I am constantly switching countries. I usually use AirBnb, or stay in cheap hotels.

How do you get paid?

I have a company set up in Hong Kong. The name of the company is Neomk Limited and it is located in 25/Floor, Workington Tower, 78 Bonham Strand – Sheung Wan, Hong Kong.

How much do you work?

I use to work more than 8 hours a day. Not having a 9-5 job doesn’t mean I don’t work – I actually work more, but on my own time. I use to work on Saturdays and Sundays as well and I don’t ever take a vacation day.

Seems like you actually work a lot… are you stressed?

I do yoga, eat healthy, exercise, snorkel, meditate, hang out with locals, etc. I do my best to keep myself happy and energized so I can offer the same to others. Also, I am usually in the nicest beaches I can find – and I think location has a big impact in one’s mind.

Isn’t this lifestyle very expensive?

I buy flights on Google Flights, only the cheapest ones even if they have long stops. I stay in cheap hotels or AirBnb. Sometimes I save money by traveling, since rent & food in certain cities like Los Angeles would be more expensive.

Any cons?

It is difficult to maintain relationships in general while traveling. I try to regularly keep in touch with my closest friends and family. Most of the time, I’m by myself but I also try to make new friends with people I’ve just met, even if I know I will only be able to spend limited time with them, a few days or weeks until I’m gone. However, I don’t really keep that in mind. I just enjoy the present and try to make the most of each day and relationship.
