In-depth guides for nomads and expats

Over the past few years I’ve written several in-depth guides on various challenges you can run into when living a location-independent or international life.

On this page you’ll find them listed, sorted by the most recently updated ones.

The guides cover many topics, such as

  • Choosing the right banks and insurance providers
  • Tips for different practical matters you’ll need to take care of when moving to a new country
  • Opening bank accounts around the world
  • Dealing with taxes when leading an international life

You can also look at the country pages of Portugal, Malta, the USA, Estonia, and the EU for content dedicated to each of those destinations.

Let me know if you’d like me to cover additional topics. If you have specific questions that I haven’t yet covered, start a new thread in our community forums. It’s free to join!
