Manila, Philippines, October 15, 2021 / TAVELINDEX / COVID-19, if anything, teaches many to take a few steps back. Declutter, live simply, work moderately, go local, and appreciate people and the planet.
Imagine… with very few things, your laptop, and a backpack, you can work from anywhere? It’s now more than possible to support local tourism, while spending less, and wasting less!
Maybe the “digital nomad” life is for you, if you want to work from anywhere… at cafes, beaches, or hotel rooms – name it! While digital nomads have existed since the rise of Zoom, GoToMeeting and other conferencing platforms – they now represent professional freedom.
In the Philippines, Nomadhood.co is the latest community not only for expats, or domestic tourists, but especially for these hardworking travelers. The new website will soon offer online and offline spaces to find safe, comfortable, efficient, and even sustainable working conditions around the country.

Everybody dreams to move from congested urban areas, back to nature, to walk freely and breathe fresh air. But with the hassle of fluctuating quarantine protocols, it only makes sense with fast internet and protocol-compliant coworking spaces.
By year two of lockdowns, businesses continue to reimagine the New Normal. According to the recently concluded Tech in Asia Conference: “There’s no doubt that if businesses and organizations don’t digitalize, they’re going to get left behind.”
The pandemic comes with the creative responsibility, too, of rethinking plastic waste, growing organic food, protecting biodiversity and promoting clean energy, among best practices by development projects of the SDG Builders Group. Everybody is called to chime in. Leaving nobody behind is at the fingertips of the tourism and hospitality sector, and with internet providers expanding access and governments easing public health concerns, we can begin to reimagine what was once unimaginable : The Future of Work and Travel.
