THE WEEKLY #123: THE MOALBOAL ROUTINE
I’m still in Moalboal and we are crushing it. That was the third week of our intense workout schedule and the digital nomad life is going strong. Bali, Chiang Mai, Medellin, and a few other big names are known as the digital nomad hotspots around the world. But why not Moalboal? If you seek to be surrounded by bloggers, influencers and coders those locations may be great but if you want to be a digital nomad in an adventurous location there are many other spots around the world where it is possible.
The typical day right now starts with a 5 am wake-up. Josh and I then run and usually get back around 7 am depending on the run. Next up is the 2km swim along the Tongo Point reef. Here we spot a turtle or two as we cruise along. It’s then time for a shower and then shoot down to Shaka Cafe for a smoothie bowl and coffee.
Next stop is to the French Cafe to whip out the computers at around 10 am or 11 am. The WiFi and vibes are good here so we settle in for a few hours of blogging, editing and more.
In the early afternoon, we head off home for an hour before going down to the LGC gym for a workout at 5 pm. After the workout, we grab dinner and possibly some groceries before heading back to the apartment. By 9 pm we are dead and ready for bed so we can prepare for our 5 am wake-up and run the next morning.
I always thought I’d like to base in Bali but now having based away from all the hype, I’m really glad I didn’t. I’ve outlined everything about why I came to that decision in the blog post inspired by my three weeks in Moalboal as a digital nomad below. Here’s to many more!
