    Philippines for ease of getting laid + no winter + outdoor activity.

    Thinking of switching to a less moronic country next year though

    Would copywriting for an IT company or online tutoring count as relevant experience for a remote help desk job? I just passed the comptia trifecta and think I should start building experience before pursuing a new cert

      Yes. Just lean into the customer service aspect of your past positions and you'll be fine

      Why not just keep copywriting and tutoring?

    i don't live anywhere. i just bounce around from short term rental to short term rental. my usual route is Seattle > Denver > LATAM > SEA > Nashville. rinse repeat.

      How do you find short term rentals? AirBnBs are 3-4x the going rate for regular rentals these days. In my area, you’re looking at $3k per month just for a room in a shared apartment.

        when i started out 3 years ago i used craigslist and airbnb. now i have a Landing Standby membership that's $1300 out the door. 6/10, cheaper than anything else. not shilling for the company but here's my 2c.

        pros
        >get to stay in really, really, nice places you normally couldn't afford
        >price is more or less all inclusive
        >super flexible, you can go just about anywhere in the US except NY or Cali

        cons (there are many)
        >if you try to stay somewhere in the "high" season, you will get bumped repeatedly. always try to get a two bedroom because those will lower your chances of getting bumped
        >because of above, if you aren't a one-bagger you are going to have a hard time. you need to be agile as frick and have a flexible schedule
        >you have to cover your ass by taking a video of the entire fricking place, as soon as you get there and right before you leave. when i say everything, i mean everything, like opening kitchen drawers/cabinets to show all the utensils are still there or they WILL try to ding you for something
        >customer service is pretty bad, do as much through email as possible so you have documentation.
        >if you want to leave the country for a few months you have to wait to get bumped, cancel your membership, and then reup when you get back

        if it wasn't for the price i wouldn't put up with it. but, even with the plane tickets going from state to state its STILL much cheaper than a typical rental.

    Thailand. I stay on education visas, which are costly, but overall less expensive than bouncing around.

      I thought they were cracking down on the long term education visas?

    SEA and Japan.
    >and why?
    Cost of living, women, climate, adventure, visa runs, etc. You already know all the reasons unless you were born yesterday.

    Based out of Vancouver. I just ended up here, didn't really plan on it and don't recommend it.

    Typically bounce around to SEA, Japan, Mexico, Australia and occasionally Europe.

      I guess it's not that good for your finances right?

    Tbilisi, Bishkek, thinking maybe Tirana next. I work GMT+3 & 5 so lots of flexibility to bounce around Asia and Europe

      I've worked from all three. Tirana is SHIT. Tbilisi was nice before 2022. Bishkek is cool.

        What went wrong with Tblisi?

          Influx of Russians drove up the cost of everything. It also made the local Georgians hostile toward foreigners, since they've also suffered inflated living costs. I went before 2022 and after. I felt the difference everywhere.

      Tirana doesn't have a lot to do compared to other cities and there aren't very many opportunities or reasons to experience any cultural exchange. Don't get me wrong, I think Albania is a decent country and it will be the next hot spot after MonteBlack goes the way of Croatia, but I couldn't imagine living there for an extended period of time knowing how much better of a life I could afford for just a bit more. Also, the internet speed and reliability kind of sucks, and with the rising cost of living you aren't even getting a good deal in exchange for the reduction in quality and service. Additionally, they stopped giving Americans 1 year of visa-free access which used to be a good reason to consider staying long-term.
