In September 2017, I spent a few weeks living and working from Cape Town, South Africa. Similar to my previous experiences as a digital nomad abroad, I went with the group Hacker Paradise.

Digital Nomading: Lessons from the First Week-ish   

I’m currently writing from the Hacker Paradise co-working space in Porto, Portugal, surrounded by hard-working entrepreneurs and programmers.
