Adam Douglas This "digital nomad" stuff is all a bit too hip for me. I'm a bit of a loner at heart and I only own clothes and a Mac, but I can't say I feel a need to go globetrotting or living with *other* loners. This doesn't make sense to me. Airbnb seems like a useful thing but there are people who actually live in Airbnb leases without having a home of their own. Which is fine I suppose, but what kind of superstar do you have to be to just go dancing off around the world without the fear of not having work?

Eric I always wondered how these people cope with the lack of regular friends to be near. I've not many and a bad habit of losing them but I would greatly miss them. I can imagine loneliness is a problem with nomad lifestyles.

Adam Douglas I think it's a lifestyle for semi-psychopathic people who don't actually make friends, they're just friendly with everybody they meet. I don't personally bother with friends in real life with the exception of my colleagues at work; 90% of the friends I have and have had over the last decade have been forum regulars.

John Olinda Too bad we're not rich enough to wander aimlessly.

Adam Douglas Well this is the point, how are they this rich? Are they just born into exorbitant wealth or what?
