It is often said that “Digital Nomadism is a lifestyle, not an occupation”; and lifestyle can change with age and perceptions. In this episode, we speak to Ruta Dambyte from Baltic Breeze Travel about how the pandemic created a reflection opportunity to her past decade in business and the privileges of a nomadic life.

Ruta shares her experiences in traveling with nomad communities, as well as her transition into slower travel with more “me” time. We dive deeper into what are potential factors of creating a nomad community and how the Baltics can improve to attract more remote workers.

Book Your Flight

I usually use a combination of 2-3 of the following search engines to find cheap flights: Skyscanner, Momondo, Google Flights

Find Your Accommodation is my usual platform for finding accommodation options as they have one of the largest selections. Hostelworld is great for booking hostels. For more private or long term accommodation, Airbnb is my go-to platform.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is important for to protect yourself against unforeseen circumstances. I usually look at a few insurance companies depending on my travel needs.
  • SafetyWings for Travel Health Insurance
  • IMG Global for added Insurance when doing activities outside of usual coverage
