Best Cafes in Medellin to Work From

Medellin has become one of the top digital nomad destinations in recent years. It’s no surprise that more and more international remote workers, freelancers, and startup founders are choosing the capital of the Antioquia Department as their home base.

There are several reasons that make Medellin almost perfect for remote work:

  • Low cost of living compared to the US/Europe
  • Amazing weather all year round
  • Lots of food and entertainment options
  • Good public transportation
  • Great coffee
  • Same working hours as US Eastern Time (for those that work with US companies)
  • And some of the nicest and most welcoming people you’ll ever meet

That being said, finding a good cafe to work from is not an easy task. Many of them are traditional Colombian coffee shops where they don’t have WiFi and the tables aren’t made to be used with laptops. And that’s okay. That’s why I spent hours scouting out places with wifi, outlets, and coffee so you don’t have to. Continue Reading “Best Cafes in Medellin to Work From”

Busting the Top 5 Myths About Remote Developers

The following is a guest article from our friends at Toptal.

Picture this…

You meet your friend Jeff for lunch. Jeff’s been managing development of a new product and it’s about to be released. He’s pumped.

But the product release isn’t the main thing that’s got Jeff so excited. Instead, Jeff can’t stop raving about his new hire, Luis.

Jeff says Luis is the best software engineer he’s ever had on his team. Luis doesn’t just hit targets others can’t, he creates and hits targets others don’t even see. He’s virtually always available, always accountable, and brings more to the table than anyone Jeff’s ever worked with. And Luis just ‘get’s it’.

How To Travel And Work Full Time At The Same Time

This is probably the question us remote workers get asked the most: How can you work full time while traveling at the same time? It does sound weird, especially for someone who only travels to and from work. For people that have in-office 9-to-5 jobs, the idea of being able to have a meaningful job and not being attached to a cubicle, a water cooler and an identification badge sounds too good to be true.

Truth is, this is something a log of people dream with. You just have to do a quick Google search to realize how many people are looking for ideas on how to get paid while traveling: Continue Reading “How To Travel And Work Full Time At The Same Time”

Here at The Wayward Road, we have been talking about the importance of remote work for years. It’s something we’re obsessed with, and believe to be not only the future of work, but that it should be the present reality as well.
