  • Introduce Yourself Here 👋

    Fang Kiang Ng

    Hello everyone, welcome to the Jorcus community.

    We’re on a mission to help bring together the digital nomads and remote workers community with the capability to help each other out during the hardest stages of their journey. Whether you’re a digital nomad or a remote worker looking to find out how to start or an established nomad looking to connect with your community this community is for you.

    We are a digital nomad and remote worker community for digital nomadic people. We help each other to find a job, apartment, city, language and more. We are a community for digital nomads to find their job, where they can live and how to meet their friends in the digital nomad life.

    We are also a community of digital nomads, who travel the world in search of new adventures and opportunities. We are always on the move, exploring and experiencing new cultures, meeting new people and experiencing beautiful places. We share our experiences with our followers and provide them with useful information on how to travel and work as a digital nomad.

    There are quite a few digital nomads around the world right now, but it’s hard to find them. We are going to be the ones leading the community. We want to be the ones to share the information to you how to make a living in a new way, becoming a digital nomad. So, we are going to introduce you to all the people in the community, as well as the reasons why you should live as a digital nomad.

    It’s so amazing that you are here. Please introduce yourself to the community, so that we can maintain closer contact with the community and make each other closer. Write a bit about yourself, tell us who you are, what you do, where do you are from, a list of your favorite place and so on. It would be amazing if you upload your own photos too!

Travel writing about the 30 countries I’ve visited/lived in is the work that lets me see the world. I look forward to connecting with like-minded digital nomads!

    Hi I’m Will from Income2Liberty.com.

    I am now in Hong Kong and has started working and building my own online businesses for nearly a decade. I am keen to know more like-minded people and share with and learn from anyone here!

    Wish all of you and your family a Merry Xmas and Happy New Year!

    • Zoran Grbic

      Happy New Year to you too. Hopefully they’ll be much better than the last two. ;-)

      What products/business/trade are you building. I have been in international trades, purchase, imports, exports since 10 years now.

  • Zoran Grbic

    Hi All,

    Zoran here. I’m a photographer by profession.

    I came to Paris in 1993 to try my luck at Sygma Photo Agency as a war photographer. Did some stuff for SIPA, ended up at Wostok Press where I tripped over Thomas Dworzak sleeping under the office table. Rest is history. He became a Magnum photographer and I spent too much time in all the hellholes you could imagine: Bosnia, Rwanda, Iraq, Chechenia trying to change the world. :-)

    Got almost killed in Bosnia only to see my reportage being cancelled because of another pool picture of Princess of Stephanie. Lost my youth innocence, decided to stop the nonsense and came back to Paris. Worked as a commercial photographer, got a son and changed profession. Became an IT project manager (yes, life is like that sometimes), to feed the family but not the mind.

    Today, IT project management still pays the bills and allows me to invest in my own photography projects. I guess nothing is ever black and white in life except the pictures I shoot.

    Went from Paris to Belgium, seperated, spent time chasing my own shadow and had another, lovely son in 2007 with my new partner.

    I love documentary photography, reportages, discovering new places, traveling and trying to understand how to combine all of that full-time. Still haven’t. But then again, some things should never be figured out. Keeps you alert, on the move and open to new challenges.

    Have been in Marloth Park, South-Africa for the last 2 weeks and will have to go back to Belgium in two days to take care of business. South-Africa got under my skin though and I plan to come back . A lot to discover, a lot to photograph.

    I hope this forum will get traction because there is a huge need for a honest, digital nomad’s hang out with real people, real digital nomads. I am amazed how much crap there is on the Internet by people who seem to abuse of the label digital nomad just to get traction on twitter, facebook and instagram.

    So, hello there, hope to talk to you soon!

I’m a digital nomad from Malta, and together with my Romanian girlfriend, live in Cyprus (as it’s conveniently located between both of our countries of origin, and is awesome!) but we travel often. Both of us are full time Forex & Crypto traders. We have plans to travel across Asia and/or Africa once the pandemic issue improves. I look forward to connecting with you all.

      Hey legion

      I would love to learn the nitty gritties for my own knowledge and understanding. I don’t want to make millions, just $30-50 a day… What do you advise?

    • Legion777

      Sure thing! Let’s get on a Zoom call so we can have a proper chat. You can reach me here: [email protected]

      Hey smymisr!

      Isn’t Egypt one of the cheapest places to live? Don’t they have low electricity costs? If so why not crypto mine? Before the recent drop many people were recovering their hardware costs in about 6-8 months if their electricity was around $.07/kwh. No other investment could be as good as that. Not sure if its legal there or not. A lot of countries in the middle east that use oil for electrical power have really low electricity costs but some don’t allow crypto mining for obvious reasons.

      The problem with crypto mining is that things can change fast resulting in much lower revenue later so you really have to be on top of the news so if there’s a change you can sell off your hardware fast. If its taxable to cash out in Egypt just cash out in another country where its not taxable. Or save it for later – when its a lot higher.

    Hi, I am Doris – a digital nomad for over 12 years now. Also, I hadn’t heard the word during the first years. I just fled from icy Canada to the South and West every winter for five months. First together with my dog, and since he passed away, just by myself. I am renting an apartment, a beach house, or long-term hotel room and writing my books and articles.

    Right now I am in Baja California Sur where friends opened a small hotel and RV resort with casita apartments, the TangoAzul Resort, in La Ventana, a world-class kite-surfer mecca. Also, I am not that sportive, I enjoy snorkeling in the blue-green waters and the quiet life here – and the 5G high-speed Internet. I drove here by car and took thousands of photos on my way, and here in Mexico.

    Olá, bom dia a todos,

    Sou Marcelo Gonçalves, Brasileiro,

    Hoje entre toda essa comunidade “Jorcus”, entrei maravilhosa pensando que eu era alguma coisa kkkk, mas depois de ler o mundo como apresentações, percebi que não sou nada, percebi também que é a minha oportunidade de ser o que eu quis… e por isso contar com vocês; iniciei em marketing digital mas creio que de forma errada.

    Quero aprender com todos…

    • Fang Kiang Ng

    Hi. I am Roland from Austria. I am was working the last 12 years for a bank in Austria. As my wife is from Cuba we decided to give it a try to live some time in La Habana and work remotely from there. Actually I had this plan since some years but before 2019 there was basically no Internet available. I am currently in Cuba and everything works great. Of course one needs to e prepared. For example, there are from time to time power outages and I have to switch from my PC to a laptop. On the other hand Internet censorship is a topic here. The government does man on the sideline attacks and is sniffing each packet. I came with dozens of VPNs and proxy solutions just to find out that many of them are not working as Cuba does protocol blocking. But it is not a big deal. There are sufficient solutions to circumvent censorship. I could even work without vpn but I prefer to have an Italian IP as this is where the bank server is located.

    Finally, noise is a huge topic in Cuba. As I have to work at night, most times it is silent but in the early morning hours huge noise starts, dogs barking, roosters, cars. I use a Software called krisp which is based on AI and filters all noise, even other voices and loud music!

    The connection is stable during the night and I have up to 80 Mbit. In the morning it becomes slower. Sometimes only 1-2 mbit. Still, no issues with the remote connection as it needs as little as 200kbit per second only. Audio is perfect, nobody even recognises that I am 8000 km away.

    Next week I will go back to Austria for 2 months. Then we will come for 3 months again to Cuba.

    As I pay a lot of tax in Austria I am currently sorting out how I could get rid of this when staying most of the time in Cuba.

    Hi there, and thanks for the invite! Looking forward to mingling with other digital nomads on a platform that’s NOT Facebook :)

    I have done freelance work on the side for years, but like so many others during the pandemic, my husband and I took the leap for travel work in 2020. We are currently full-time RV’ers in the USA, based in the beautiful Florida coast but regularly travel interstate (and ultimately abroad!) He runs a tech business (AV/WiFi systems) which is in huge demand here, and I have combined my skills and interests into a creative brand that mostly services small businesses & non-profits. I specialize in branding/rebranding, bespoke design, and creative consulting. The challenges of mobile living/working are not for everyone, and it’s a never-ending learning curve, but we wouldn’t trade it for anything!

    Nice to meet you all!

    – Jess
