    Preciate it, my company is open (with notice) however and has offices everywhere- one of our coworkers was living on her boat, a bunch are state hopping/road tripping and I’ve already primed them for it.

    2-10 is interesting, I’ll mull that over. Thinking around May have some things to get done and hunker down around winter time-and away from the East Coast now. Semi-Permanently.

    I live in PST too. but who says I'm going be at home the whole time. :skip:

    If I got my ipad or phone, then I'll be straight if I reply to an email here and there.

    I think the most important thing is going somewhere with good and strong wifi, more than anything.

    Like Jamaica ain't it. Plus they only had 3G cell towers in Jamaica.

    I was thinking about Panama or traveling through Columbia again.

    I found out on Airbnb that there are legit people who only rent out to people staying for 30+ days. :ohhh:

    Headed to Mexico in December, already dropped a $9k bag for Disney next September :francis:
    Juneteenth we got a nice ass beach house in Galveston.
    I think the only other space we have left is March/April and then a winter trip to either Europ or Latin America.

    any places in mind.

    Also a lot of places are starting to waive the PCR requirement, so you'll only need one coming back into America.


    PCR test are so fukking expensive in the US.

    If I only had to respond to emails that'd be fine, but those EOD PST meetings on EST though....nah man. Just too late in the day.

    Panama would be clutch though.

    That PCR Test stuff is a straight juug in some countries. My folks travel back and forth from the US and Nigeria and in Nigeria you gotta test before you come in, within 2 days of when you arrive and then once again before you leave. I think each test is like $70+.

    Like what's the point of testing once you arrive if you test right before you enter the country...?

    Try readjusting your way of thinking.


    Really your time frame for the visit is really what would determine a lot. Like if you're just trying be gone a week. I can see how trying squeeze shyt in would be frustrating, but the point of staying for a while, is to take your time, not feel rushed, and really experience what life is like somewhere else.

    For me, I'm trying escape the rat race, not travel somewhere else and deal with their version of the rat race.

    Plus remember once, you have housing secured. Everything else is cheap(food, transportation, and activities wise). Electronics aren't.
    How you been to Panama? It rains a lot.

    But it is central to a lot of Caribbean and South American Destinations, everything is like 2-3 hours away. But so is Florida.

    Beautiful city, with great infrastructure for a Latin American country. I read that it's one of the top expat spots for retirees.

    Also I heard Argentina is by far the cheapest and most bang for buck place in Latin America.

    I was looking at pent house spots in Buenos Aire on airbnb's and :wow:

    @TradePascalSiakam this would worth the long trip for you:
    Airbnb: Holiday Rentals, Cabins, Beach Houses, Unique Homes & Experiences

    Airbnb: Holiday Rentals, Cabins, Beach Houses, Unique Homes & Experiences

    Only thing is, last i checked its hard to get into the country, because of Covid.

    Ideally, I’d want to do the remote thing from somewhere in sub saharan Africa.

    Do personal projects on ground during the day, then office work during the evening till late night. Rinse and repeat..

    Haven’t been but from my boys that have been, it’s a good spot to do global WFH. It has good expat infrastructure because of the canal operations and it’s close enough to the US (FL) so you can always dip back if needed.

    Bahrain. My sister is military and I saw a good deal to come surprise her. Then, I may bounce around the MENA.

    I paid 259 for a rapid test that took around 15 minutes. When I landed in Doha, I saw they had free rapid testing in the airport. Why did I need it for the first flight when my final connecting destination required it? I could have gotten it here. :mjcry:

    It's basically a low-key Dubai, way cheaper too.

    I hate flying so I try to bundle up trips. I may try to go to Saudi, Qatar, Oman. Maybe a few days in London/Paris/Amsterdam before I exit, but I promised my sister I would stay a while.

    If you wanna travel and not be surrounded by crowds or a packed flight, this is your time.

    I was in one of their business lounges as well, but not that one. I’m too poor for that one. :to:



    It’s basically a mall. Istanbul’s airport is similar.
