Nomadic lifestyle like any other can have its good and bad sides. Nomads often say that you can’t choose that kind of lifestyle it is just the way they are. Nomad life means constantly changing the place where you live and having your freedom to do whatever you like wherever you like it.  It can be good for meeting new people and new cultures and languages and it can feel good, but when it comes to relationships with friends or significant other it can be very difficult.

It is tough to find a stable job even if you don’t move so much, but if you are a nomad, finding a job can be pretty hard thing to do. Digital nomads often put their lifestyle in front of every other need even having a relationship, this way of life can be pretty confusing to those who lead a different kind of lifestyle, because of that nomads often have problems with people that surround them.

Problems which nomads might have are numerous, when you ‘chose’ or better yet accept this kind of life you should expect some of these so called ‘uncomfortable truths’:

1.Planning can’t be activity you will be handling, since nomadic life is flexible and uncertain even if you make plans for few days ahead it will most likely fail because of possibilities for example if nomad plans to go to dinner with his best friend, and somehow he gets an invitation to travel to other country, he will surely chose travel over dinner. Five-year plan is abstraction to nomad, it is something that does not exist in nomad lifestyle.

2. Having a relationship and marriage are almost impossible unless you find nomad partner who would like to travel the world with you and never stop, sounds perfect, right? Finding a partner who will be ready to spend their life like this is not easy but that doesn’t mean it is impossible. Also we all know love changes people, maybe it can change your nomadic style of life too.

3. Nomad lifestyle often becomes addiction. Like any other addiction it can’t be good for you. If you roam around the world for a long time, it can become addiction and you will have to travel even more often leaving everything you have behind you. Hooking off of this habit can be pretty hard so be careful and try to find a place which you can call home, where you will go when every travel ends.

Ben Hayward's home measures about seven square metres and is currently parked in an overflow lot in southern France. Faced with financial challenges that could have derailed his Olympic dream, the kayaker from Edmonton has taken the nomadic lifestyle of the amateur athlete to a whole new level. Hayward lives and travels in a camper van he built from scratch on a flatbed truck, combining his background in architecture with his need to live and train in Europe on the cheap.

4. People around you often consider you a lost soul. When you don’t have an address, a place you can call home when they ask you where do you live, people will surely look you differently than other, that is just the way people are, they will probably also call you a wanderer or a homeless but if you are a nomad you have a free spirit, you probably should not be moved by it.

However, live your life fullest no matter what others think and enjoy your travels. Nomad way of life can also be full of unexpected and beautiful things.

One of the most enjoyable factors of being on the road is having lots of time to learn new skills. A digital nomad cannot be working all the time or he will go mad. Recently I have been developing my music skills as I like hip-hop and really wanted to make some music. I don’t know a lot about music so I needed something basic that just worked on my computer as carrying a lot of gear is not an option. Dr. Drum was the best beat making software I found and now I pump out hours of sick tunes when I am travelling on a bus!
