Living a nomadic life certainly isn’t without tradeoffs. I remember the days when I had a comfortable office chair to sit in. I tell ya, as a digital nomad traveling the globe, those days are few and far between. Most of the chairs at Chiang Mai wifi spots I frequented consisted of wood chairs. Many without cushions. If there were cushions, they were extremely thin. Same in Spain and Greece. Worse in Africa.
I’ve been in Barcelona a little over a week, heads down working on Oh Hey World — in not so comfortable chairs. So I was pleasantly surprised to hear from Jonathan Hayes at Dinube (working on a digital wallet in the cloud), who responded to my message on a Meetup Group for Barcelona entrepreneurs where I asked about co-working space. His co-founder is currently in Boston, so the timing of having an extra desk available at his office worked out great. And there would be no charge.
So I spent yesterday working from an office with a real office chair in a real office with great WIFI. It was glorious.
Thanks Jonathan (and Dinube) for the Spanish hospitality.
