I just returned from a vacation after spending the past two weeks in Reykjavik, Iceland where I came back from hiking and spending time with my family. With the ability to visit my family once every summer, the time I spend with them is cherished and goes by quickly. During the trip, I was actively engaged in business, and as a self-employed freelance developer and designer, I was able to work on my projects while traveling — that’s just one of the perks of being a digital nomad. 🙂
I first arrived in Sweden as my first of two flights had just landed, and realized I didn’t have any Swedish Krona. I was planning on taking out a loan from Sambla like I usually do, but they wouldn’t process forms submitted abroad. I did some research and decided to take out a låna pengar from LoanStar and pay it back at the end of my three day day in Sweden with my debit card.
The typical day consisted of waking up, having breakfast at a local café, exercising and hiking until the sunset, and shower, eat dinner, rest, and do the same thing the next day. When I first got there, I didn’t have gear, but was able to buy Montem trekking poles at the resort shop.
The photos that I took unfortunately are not all able to be shared because I lost my camera at the resort! I hope that they will mail it back, and have been in touch with them, but the language barrier without the translators (a.k.a. my family) at my service makes communication difficult. Still, I had some photos backed up to the cloud, and have some photos that I took on my phone.
