From where we could go to whom we could see, COVID-19 sprung plenty of unexpected limitations on us. After a year of adjusting to a new normal, however, it’s clear that there are certain areas in which the pandemic had quite the opposite effect. A prominent example of this is the opportunity the pandemic gave to companies across the globe to test drive remote working models, a venture that, in many cases, proved not only necessary, but surprisingly effective.
With a newfound, widespread flexibility to work outside of the office, one that many now anticipate will long outlast the pandemic, an increasing number of employees have joined the community of digital nomads, whose jobs afford them the freedom to not just work from home, but work from any home. If you count yourself among the growing sector of travelers just looking for a new and exciting backdrop for their untethered careers, you should also count yourself lucky; With short-term property management companies taking note of this emerging travel persona, there’s no shortage of accomodations catering to the unique needs of the remote worker.
