Digital nomads: The new dimension of online!
They reconcile technology with professional activity. They are people, of different ages, places and sectors of activity and who have the possibility to work at a distance! All they need is a computer, tablet or smartphone and a good internet connection. Their work is done remotely… from anywhere in the world!
The logic is to do what you like but having the freedom to be where you want to be. Today you’re in Faro, next week in another city and the next week you decide where you want to be! The Digital Nomads platform can help you decide the destination or meet other nomads along the way. And if you’re already or want to become a digital nomad, meet 7 European cities here, and with direct flights from Faro:
