However, the situation is fluid and as some parts of the world begin to reopen it may be possible to engage in long term travel to certain popular digital nomad destinations soon.
You may not experience the flexibility and freedom once associated with the digital nomad lifestyle but if this is not your primary motivation for a location independent life there may still be opportunities - particularly for those working in the digital industry. Becoming location independent may offer you the chance to live somewhere with a better climate and a lower cost of living during turbulent economic times.
The global pandemic meant businesses needed to pivot quickly. Many that would have had minimal online presence have moved online in one form or another. As the knowledge may not exist in-house, some are hiring freelancers to help with website design, social media and other forms of digital marketing.
If you are considering life overseas, and only when it is deemed safe to travel from your home country to your destination country of choice, take some time to work out your travel necessities.
