Hi! My name is Barbara and since 2014, I have been living as a digital nomad. I write about my experiences around the world on my blog. My focus is on outdoor adventures and work-life balance. In this way, I want to inspire people to start their own journey to freedom and to experience and explore the beauty of nature. As last year, I will spend the coming winter with my husband Toby in Chiang Mai, one of my favorite places in the whole world. Additionally, during this trip, you will be able to experience Loy Krathong, the Thai festival of light. It's a breathtaking experience and especially beautiful in Chiang Mai because it coincides with the local festival Yee Peng. Here's what you can expect from this coworking trip in Chiang Mai: ๐ŸŒ It's going to be a mix of work, trips, and fun ๐ŸŒ Mastermind sessions, brainstorming ideas, or sharing knowledge or skills (I'm happy to share my experience of 10 years as a digital nomad and 15 years of being self-employed) ๐ŸŒ There are several areas to sit and work, e.g. a big table outside ๐ŸŒ During the days, you will be able to decide whether you want to go out and explore or stay at the villa to get work done, have a swim in the pool, or socialize with the others ๐ŸŒ We will check out some nice coworking cafรฉs, too (expenses not included) ๐ŸŒ We will go on trips around Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai (see the schedule below) ๐ŸŒ Several board games and one Nintendo Switch will be available (for individual use or game nights) ๐ŸŒ We will get to know the local culture and visit temples, and night markets (expenses not included) ๐ŸŒ Up for some dancing fitness? I'm a certified Zumbaยฎ instructor! ๐ŸŒ Wanna work out together or do yoga? We have lots of space to get fit together! We're looking for 2 to 7 open-minded remote workers to join us in Chiang Mai for some coworking in the sun, inspiration, motivation, good conversations, connections, and lots of fun. Also, November is the BEST time to visit Chiang Mai! Let's make this an unforgettable experience! โœจ If a month is too long for you, you can only book two weeks! Just click on my trip leader profile to find the other options. If you want to save money or join a friend: The house has two bedrooms with two beds (one with two normal-sized beds and one with a queen-size and a regular-sized bed). Send me a message if you're interested in these options.

About me! I'm Barbara, a travel blogger and digital nomad. When I went to Chiang Mai for the first time, back in 2016, I immediately fell in love with this city. I love the vibe, the community, the area itself. Normally, I'm more of an island person but Chiang Mai stole my heart although it's not close to the beach.

About the accommodation: We will stay in a villa just outside of Chiang Mai town (15 minutes' ride to Old Town). - You will have your private room with its own bathroom and aircon - There is a big pool for communal use - There is a big outside table to cowork, chill, eat, etc. - There is a kitchen where we can cook (Toby loves to cook!) - There are several fresh markets just 10 minutes' walking distance - There is a cute cafรฉ for coworking or chilling just 5 minutes walking distance If you have any questions you can let me know in the Q&A section! See you in Chiang Mai, Barbara & Toby

Barbara put together a great trip and took us to places far away from tourism. We were in the middle of the local life what you hope from a trip. Places where you probably would never have found yourself. It was a fantastic time and I can highly recommend Barbara.
