DIGITAL NOMAD Survival Guide! (It Ain’t As Easy As It Seems!)
Is SPAIN A Great Place To Work Digitally? Well, we think so.
So, you fancy yourself a remote worker. A digital nomad. You’ve rocked that couch of yours for some time now and work has been excellent. But where are the edges of that existence? You’ve tried Panera and Starbucks and it kinda worked there too. But what about say … international travel and remote work? That sounds harder, right? Well … yes and no.
Let’s look at Spain as our first example. In this video I’ll give you all the gory details that make up remote work in Barcelona (and elsewhere!).
- Do they have acceptable and reliable internet (and wifi)? Will you be able to have stable connections back to your office?
- What backups are available if your main internet goes out? You can’t just “not work”, so how will you move to Plan B and Plan C?
- And how does that pesky six hour time difference work? Noon on the east coast of the states is dinnertime in Spain. Or is it? Time is a strange thing over there.

Hi, I’m Rick Higgins and I have spent the better part of a year telecommuting (remote working, digital nomading, whatever you want to call it) from Europe. And Spain was probably my best experience. Because while sometimes subtle, the differences over there really work in your favor.
- Great internet – High speeds, reliable, no delay at all. And cell/mobile is fine too.
- PLAN B – Lots of free wifi in cafes (that have acceptable speed) .. and they don’t kick you out
- PLAN C – The presence of WeWork places as a backstop – Not just for offices, daily too
- The time difference should be a pain, but Spanish time fits!
