In this interview, we meet with Kavi Guppta, a knowledgeable and experienced digital nomad who coverts the topics of Tech, digital nomads and remote work for Forbes and other magazines.
Kavi has spoken with the most prominent nomads out there, so if you are interested in building a sustainable nomadic life, his advice will be valuable and might help ut things in perspective for you.
The interview is very comprehensive, but here are two things I have taken from it personally
• Kavi looks on digital nomadism as only one subset of a remote working culture which included home working, location independence and much more.
• Kavi identifies a change in digital nomadism that used to be reserved to “young white males in tech background”. We see more women and minorities join the trend, which is no longer a “glorified constant backpacking” but a new way of life balancing work and travel.
With companies now increasingly allowing their employees to choose Where, When, How Frequently they want to work, the digital nomad world is growing fast. Listen to the interview to hear more about what characteristics, in Kavi's opinion, make a nomad into a successful nomad.

Nomads are traveling constantly, and it can get confusing when your entire environment is always changing. By improving your orientation, you're more likely to feel at home at your new location. Good orientation will also save you valuable time, and is especially helpful in places that aren't that safe where you don't want to be wandering around clueless (check this link for more details on risks of travelling).
