There’s something you need to say.
If you didn’t say it after watching the video of the polite little boy with the dinosaurs,
or when you caught your 500th Pokémon,
or when Google Maps saved your lost ass,
say it now: Thank you, internet.
As those living in the digital age, we owe the internet for a lot of in our lives, from Barack Obama ping pong PhotoShop masterpieces to Morgan Freeman giving us turn-by-turn directions, albeit briefly.
More seriously, the internet has also opened up a plethora of opportunities when it comes to our professional life.
Enter, digital nomad.
