Nomads are people, whose lifestyle is based on constant travel and moving from one place to another. In the community of freelancers the term „digital nomads“ is becoming more and more common. It is a lifestyle, although it always doesn’t need to be for the whole lifetime. People who can make living simply by their ability and talent, together with a notebook and good Internet connection, have the possibility of traveling around the world while working. One of the first digital nomads in the Czech Republic is Vitezslav Valka, graphic and web designer. He goes on the road each year for several months, along with his wife and to daughters. They travel across the Europe in their caravan.

A ton changed in my priorities since 2012. I’ve fixed cashflow & step by step I’m fixing overall net worth. I’m paying attention to the fact, that life’s short and there’s a reason to not work as hard as it is technically possible.
You are asking me and Renata how caravan has changed us. If it really works the way we write. Of course! Our life has improved in many other areas. All tricks, we have found, are in this article.
Spring 2015. After trips to Croatia, Sicily and Turkey, we’ve taken our caravan family to the western part of Europe. And took a little side trip to Morocco. We left home in early April and were back in late July — over 15,000 kilometers of adventure. The longest trip we made.
