This post is part of a series of weekly e-mails that I send out to my e-mail list every Friday about my week as a digital nomad. It’s a little modified from its original form to look more like a blog post, but it’s still very similar to its original form. Enjoy!

You legend, how is life!

I hope you’re having yourself a fantastic Friday wherever you are and here is your weekly dose of the life of a digital nomad.

Where I’m traveling

After my skydive in Dubai, I went straight to the airport and left for one of the most beautiful countries in the Middle East, which is… Oman!

I haven’t done a real road-trip in quite a while, so I decided to rent a 4×4 and drive literally all around the country, which should be a trip of over 3,000 kilometers. Wish me luck 🙂

What I’m reading

This week I’m reading this book called Digital Gold, which talks about what crypto currencies are (Bitcoin and others) and how they came about. This book was really interesting to read and it convinced me that crypto currencies are the future, a hundred percent. I started thinking I might even start some sort of a project in this space, who knows!

Quote I’m pondering

I have this really cool application installed on my computer that blocks my Facebook feed every time I log in and instead shows me some sort of a quote that’s either inspiring or helping me be more productive. Today I saw this:

“Tomorrow is usually the busiest day of the week.” – Spanish Proverb

Best on BeNomad

This week we only published one post on BeNomad, but it’s definitely worth a read. It’s about a guy who used to intern for some of the biggest Internet companies in the world, including Google, but decided to quit it all and become a freelancing digital nomad. Check it out here.

Nomad of the week

This week I received an e-mail from a 17 year-old legend in India, called Suraj and was really inspired by his story. Suraj has been passionate about traveling ever since he was a little kid, but he never knew it was possible to do it all the time. Then, when he realized he could travel indefinitely if he made money remotely, he decided to start a YouTube tech channel and has grown it to over 32,000 subscribers and almost 3,000,000 views in just a couple of years.

He is still in school, but he would like to grow his online income to a level where he could start traveling the world right after graduating high school. I’m absolutely certain he can. Way to go, Suraj! Check out his YouTube channel here.

Have an absolutely wonderful weekend and I’ll see you next week!

Jacob.
