Highlights of our conversation

I didn’t know a lot about “location independence” and being a “digital nomad” so I was really interested to speak to Amy to learn more.   Here’s what we talked about:

  • Amy’s journey into location independence, which started after 9 months of travelling
  • the difference between being location independence and being a digital nomad
  • how much planning and logistics are involved (and why winging it can become an option)
  • the complications that can arise with International travel
  • why living as a digital nomad isn’t a way to escape
  • a few of the challenges that come along with these choices
