My Journey as a Digital Nomad 👋
My name is Alex Veryayskiy, and at the moment of writing this book, I am a 35- year-old adventurer who has been embracing the digital nomad lifestyle for the past 11 years.
My passion for travel was sparked on my 20th birthday in 2008 when I took my first personal trip and flight to Crete, Greece 🇬🇷. That unforgettable experience made me realize that I wanted to discover the world's hidden gems. However, with a full- time job as a software engineer at one of the biggest social networks back then, I only had around four weeks per year to quench my wanderlust, which was far from enough.
Over the next four years, I focused on preparing myself for a life of travel, honing the skills and knowledge necessary for remote work. I also made the most of my limited vacation time, exploring nearby countries whenever I could.
A significant turning point in my life occurred in 2012 when my team and I relocated to Southeast Asia to build my first startup. That milestone marked the beginning of my digital nomad adventure. Since then, I've visited and lived in over 40 countries across five continents. As an experienced digital nomad, I was lucky to give lectures about remote work, assisted companies in forming remote teams, and even made an appearance on Portuguese TV 🎥, discussing life as a digital nomad on Madeira.
I'm not a professional writer, but a tech person 🤓. As such, you'll find the information in this book structured in a technical way, with lots of lists and advice. I've also included many small stories that happened to me regarding various topics. These anecdotes serve to illustrate the practical realities of life as a digital nomad, providing real-world context to the guidance I'm sharing.
My digital nomad career started in software development 🧑💻 and has since evolved towards entrepreneurship and helping others. This progression has been greatly influenced by my travels. By exploring the world, I've been exposed to a wealth of opportunities and have had the chance to meet a diverse array of people, experiences I might have missed had I stayed in one place. These experiences have provided invaluable insights, which I've distilled into this book. By sharing my journey, I hope to inspire you and equip you with the knowledge you need to embark on your own digital nomad adventure.
