Traveling through Europe can be a great experience—but it can also be expensive. If you’re a digital nomad and exploring the world while you work, there can be some great deals to be found in coworking and coliving spaces! Not only can combining working and living spaces help you budget easier, but you’ll also be immersed in a wonderful community of entrepreneurs, freelancers, and remote employees from all over the globe.
Coworking and coliving are becoming incredibly popular worldwide—you can be innovative and productive with your projects, and enjoy the culture and beauty of another country.

Digital nomads have long understood the benefits of having a flexible workplace. Our productivity skyrockets within the right setting, whether that be at a beachside cafe or in a home office. And a lot of people who've had to work from home during the pandemic have seen the upsides as well—and they're not happy about returning to the office. So how do you convince your boss to work remotely on a more permanent basis? We’ll show you in this guide.
Coliving and Coworking Right
Coliving and coworking spaces are so much more than just a place to work and sleep. By becoming part of these communities, you’ll get to learn about other cultures and enjoy an amazing destination by becoming part of the neighborhood. To immerse yourself not only in fascinating work, but also in new cities, countries, and cultures is a tremendous growing experience. Every day will offer a learning moment, and the connections you make will last your entire life.
