With advancements in technology people have been able to work from anywhere in the world. Today you could be at your office in the UK, tomorrow you might be having a meeting in Japan. Thanks to the internet being so readily available in most places, you can connect on the go and get those important emails sent and blog posts written, wherever you might be.
What is a nomadic lifestyle?
A nomad is constantly switching up their location and moving from one place to another, never really settling in one. This could be switching up the place they call ‘home’ once every week, month or year but not having a definitive, set place in which to live and work in. Some might find the lifestyle challenging as for most, home is somewhere you continue to build on, return to and feel comfortable. For those who need stability in their lives, the nomadic lifestyle might not be a long-term thing, but it’s great to try out once in a while. Nomads might decide to stay in short rentals or hostels depending on the reason for their travelling, for example; work, leisure or pilgrimage.
More young people are turning towards nomadic lifestyles as travel has become much easier, more accessible, and more affordable over the years and with new modern technology, keeping up to date with family back home is a breeze.
What are the benefits of a nomadic lifestyle?
A nomadic lifestyle means that you can disconnect from one particular place in the world and experience as many different places as possible. Nomads often travel light, meaning that possessions aren’t really that important and only the necessities are of need to them, leaving more money to spend on spectacular experiences and reaching new destinations. With a minimalist mindset you can gain experiences rather than items and clear your mind (and backpack) of clutter.
You don’t have to fully disconnect from the world to become a nomad either. If you enjoy being connected to the internet and sharing your experiences via social media, or you run a blog or can work remotely, you can stay up to date at one of the many digital nomad locations across the globe. Waking up in a different city and trying new, exciting experiences creates a more well-rounded outlook on things and will allow for great memories to look back on later in life.
How has the travel industry adapted to constantly moving businesses?
Business travel is a journey that is used for work purposes specifically, not for leisure or holiday reasons. 30% of travel that takes place nowadays is purely for business reasons, and there’s no sign of it slowing down any time soon. There are many different reasons that companies will choose to send their staff abroad or to another city for work, such as securing a business deal, staff incentives or scouting out a new location for a brand-new site. Some teams in larger companies are situated in different areas of the country, so in order to have a wider team meeting staff might be asked to trip to another site to liaise with other departments.
The travel industry has adapted to this by offering different services for employers to provide their staff with when making these journeys, such as comfortable First-Class train travel and pick up and drop off services to and from airports. With the world becoming more digital and companies growing by the day, it’s important to have
these travel services in place to keep things running as smoothly as possible.
