Well hello there. (Did you come here after reading the Guardian’s Weekend mag? Welcome!). I’m back in the UK at the moment (typing this over a cup of tea), but I’ve pulled a special post to the top of this page for you today to show you an ‘out of office’ work day in Bali as mentioned in the article.
Oh, and if you like the idea of doing things on your terms (be it from your own kitchen table, or a little further afield) and getting paid well for it (because, you know, real world and all that), take a look at my book… or simply pop on to the free range Friday Love Letter list to get ideas and inspiration to make it happen. Enjoy!
Hop on the back of my scooter as I whizz you ‘virtually’ around Ubud: from wifi to people and places to go, see what it’s like living+working in this popular ‘digital nomad with laptop’ destination (listen out for the roosters in the background).
Ever wondered what a work day might look like when you’re living ‘location independent’ in Bali, working on your laptop? Find out for yourself in this 12 minute virtual video tour of my typical ‘free range work day’ around Ubud in Bali.
This is the first time I’ve shot a ‘regular day’ video like this – it was a lot of fun to do and I hope you enjoy it too.
PS: BTW this was shot entirely on my iphone… with each part done in one take. Yup, it’s the real deal, what you see is what you get. Including, er, my hair… what can I say, it’s rainy season :).
What I show you in this video is all about the Ubud you see on a work day with your laptop, going between a few wi-fi friendly humans and seeing others doing the same. But that’s just one part of Ubud life – if you come here don’t spend all your time hanging out in cafes! There’s lots more to Ubud and Bali than that – and that’s the part that free rangers explore on their non-work days (or afternoons ;)).
