Press info Nomad Month
In today’s digital age, a growing number of professionals have shifted from traditional 9-5 office jobs to remote work, allowing them to work from the comfort of their homes or even exotic destinations. While this newfound flexibility offers numerous advantages, it also comes with some challenges, one of the most significant being isolation. Whether working from home or travelling to different countries, remote workers often struggle to connect with like-minded individuals who share their desire to explore new places while remaining productive.
Enter travel programs designed for digital nomads, such as “Nomad Month.” This initiative orchestrates work retreats tailored to digital nomads and remote workers, providing a fantastic opportunity to form connections in new destinations, immerse oneself in diverse cultures, and embrace unique experiences without sacrificing work commitments.
What Is Nomad Month?
Nomad Month extends an invitation to digital nomads and remote workers to spend a month in Prague, where they can discover the city like locals. This program was crafted by Mathias and Eva, two expats with an extensive history of living in Prague. They’ve made the city their home and jointly operate a coworking space where a vibrant community of professionals from over 25 different countries, spanning various industries, has thrived. Their mission is to extend a warm welcome to remote workers worldwide, offering them the chance to build connections within the community while experiencing an authentic Prague.
Participating in a Nomad Month program allows individuals to bypass the hassles of planning their coworkation. Nomad Month carefully curates accommodation in some of Prague’s most desirable neighborhoods, leveraging local insights for optimal choices. Furthermore, participants gain round-the-clock access to the coworking space, creating an ideal environment for both focused work and networking with like-minded individuals. Numerous weekly events further enhance the experience.
