Thanks for checking out Nomad Philippines. I had been living in the US my whole life and really hated my job. I was ready for a change and thought there must be ways to make money online.
I had heard good things about living in Asia as a ‘digital nomad’, and the dating scene over there. One day I just hit breaking point with the job, decided enough is enough and jumped head first into the idea of becoming location independent.
For 6 months I researched any forum or information I could get on living in the Philippines or working remotely, asking tons of questions to get started then just got on a plane. #YOLO.
Shortly after I was living by the beach supporting myself working online, all the time keeping my expenses under $1,000/month.
I had basically no travel experience at all so knew there would be some ups and downs but overall it has gone pretty smoothly. I have made some mistakes along the way but so far none of them have cost me too much. I ended up living in Cambodia and Thailand for a year too.
Some hotels were so cheap I just lived in those month to month.
Now I am just trying to enjoy my life and be happy I found a way out of the 9 to 5 trap so many people fall into. I have told so many friends back home about how great day to day life here is, feels super safe, etc. yet none of them listen.
So now I write articles on this site to help others moving to the Philippines.
Ask me anything about living in the Philippines or Filipina girls in the comments on any post and I’ll get back to you ASAP.
If you’d like to support the blog consider making use of the dating site or other referral links dotted around Nomad Philippines. I also put together some ebook city guides and maps.
