I've been travelling on and off for 16 years, mixing up my travel writing with freelance design work. Way back in 2002 (when I took my first ever trip to South-East Asia), there was no such thing as a co-living space for digital nomads, or at least not that I'm aware of. Fast-forward to 2018 and the question I find myself asking now, is why wouldn't you want a more flexible work/life balance?
Kath Swinbourne is a Australian photographer based in Wollongong, New South Wales. So far she has undertaken solo drives in her 4WD through The Flinders Ranges and The Simpson Desert. Enjoying the solitude and spectacular scenery of her homeland, she travels with her swag, camera and good coffee. She is currently planning her next (10,000km) solo trip.
Anna Gustafsson currently lives a 9 to 5 life as an engineer in Stockholm. The last time she took a break from daily life, she went to Rome for three months to learn Italian. And being based in Stockholm for the past three years, she has taken the opportunity to explore her homeland and has traveled north in both Sweden and Norway several times.
In September, I took a trip to Barcelona. This was my third trip to Barcelona but my first solo trip. I booked myself into an Airbnb just around the corner from Passeig de Gràcia. It was a beautiful apartment with top floor views of the Eixample neighbourhood.
