Tarek Kholoussy from Nomads Giving Back and Nomads Skillshare talks about how digital nomads can use their digital skillsets and influence to positively impact communities. 

In this episode, Tarek shares his transition journey from corporate America to a traveling nomad and setting up bases — what were the events that triggered the change and the challenges/considerations he had during the transit. We also talk about the lessons that are learnt through experiencing different culture.

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 three insurance companies depending on my travel needs. Packing for your trip? Check out the packing list for ideas on what to bring
