"Not all who wander are lost," goes the famous quote by J.R.R. Tolkien. This rings true for everyone who exchanged a desk chair for a beach chair; and an office with sunset in some remote location. The digital nomad lifestyle has slowly but steadily penetrated the workforce, but its popularity skyrocketed when the COVID-19 pandemic came. It's more than true when we say that the future belongs to digital nomads, especially when researchers estimate that by 2025 more than 70% of the global workforce will embrace this location-independent lifestyle that allows them to live and work more freely than ever.
Traveling most of the year and living out of suitcases or backpacks certainly sounds exciting and has tremendous benefits. For example, you get to live in Chiang Mai in Thailand, spend the afternoon scuba diving in Bali, or enjoy fusion meals at the cost of Colombia or Argentina, all while living at a fraction of what you used to. If you are one of those who took the leap and canceled the return ticket home to truly live the life – kudos to you.
During several years on the road, you've probably experienced great entrepreneurial and travel opportunities, increased your earning potential, built wealth, or created several income streams. While also having some other perks across various life domains, you can successfully work from anywhere in the world. However, occasionally it might get a bit overwhelming, and your heart might be longing for somewhere more pampering, calm and laid-back.
So why not explore a European destination that caters to a more pampered lifestyle and checks some necessary infrastructure boxes on your list, such as – Montenegro? Montenegro has recently become a lovely choice for experienced digital nomads who crave friendly people, natural beauty, mild climate, overall safety, and proximity to major European cities. The government has recently focused on sustainable development and becoming an eco-oriented, green destination.
Recently, Montenegro introduced a digital nomad visa. This type of visa is issued for two years and renewable for another two years, meaning you can live in Montenegro for four years. Also, there are talks about the possibility of tax breaks for digital nomads who hold this visa, which makes this relocation quite an advantage.
Digital nomads who currently work from Montenegro are raving about its coast, especially the Bay of Kotor, considered one of the most beautiful places in the world. Mountains tower over the shore, creating a natural harbor, and cities are incredibly vibrant and enjoyable with gorgeous beaches.
If Montenegro is a hidden gem, Portonovi is undoubtedly a diamond in its crown. A thriving, Mediterranean-style village boasts a truly international community from every part of the world. You don't necessarily need a six-figure salary to live here; there are numerous rental options depending on your interest. Think of Portonovi as a place where you can finally unwind and pamper yourself while working on that fantastic idea you've been putting aside for too long. A place where you can finally enjoy that hard-earned currency.
The work-life balance is a challenge everyone faces, even digital nomads. So when you are landing in a new destination, it may require some time to navigate your schedule to maximize the excellent part while working enough to continue building your wealth.
Let's review some of the benefits Portonovi has and why you should consider it as your next destination:
Did we get you interested? Let's see what your daily routine might look like in Portonovi. After waking up, you probably need a cup of something to your taste and a nibble or two. Indeed, we suggest you healthily start your day - with either a freshly squeezed juice or a detox drink if you're still hung over from late work hours. We're sure you'll quickly find your favorite café in Portonovi and become a regular there.
Afterward, you can choose the exercise you enjoy most - if you're a runner, running up and down the coast will surely benefit your muscles and lungs as you breathe in the fresh, salty sea air. Also, why not take a dip in the sea during warmer months? If you prefer bodyweight exercise, visit Chenot Espace SPA, where you can have yoga, pilates, or functional training classes. Somewhere around the final set, you will probably already have your mind set on work; work till you're done, but don't overstretch yourself. After all, you're a digital nomad who left the corporate long ago.
Everything is up to you in the afternoon - late lunch or early dinner? Whichever you choose, you can experience everything - from traditional Montenegrin cuisine to chic Asian dining or exquisite fusion meals. Don't forget to unwind in bars that are all within walking distance - be sure to invite some new friends you have recently met.
As the day is ending, you will probably sit down in a beach bar in the marina with a glass (or two) of something strong, thinking to yourself - "Living here for a while has probably been one of the best decisions I've made."
It sure has.
Remember - you cannot time the market, so owning your seaside residence might be a steady source of excellent recurring income. If you are interested in such an investment, let's explore the properties that might suit your needs.
