The Rise of Living and Working Abroad in a Post-Pandemic World
Until very recently, the idea of working remotely while traveling the world was the stuff of fantasies and Travel & Leisure articles. So-called younger digital nomads were out there, owning multiple passports, taking pilates classes on mountaintops, and posting laptop-by-the-ocean selfies—but they made up a small, enviable niche of the travel market.
The novel coronavirus may have changed that. Along with how we shop, socialize, and attend happy hours, the COVID-19 pandemic has transformed the way we work—possibly for the better, and probably forever. Now that so many of us are working remotely, employers and employees alike are realizing that a lot of our jobs can be done from anywhere. For a growing number of professionals, the digital lifestyle no longer seems so unattainable.
