40 yo travelling nomad with 2 suitcases. Just recording my travels and describing tips how to make money online. I have a business degree, university, but I have only worked in office for 6 months after uni. Office work is not for me. I was one of the first enterpreneurs who were able to work from laptop and travel the world. I hope you will succeed also.
I am still in shock. I am writing this post with my old HP6715s laptop, can you imagine that. It is like 5 years old. Why? Because MSI fucked me over really good. My laptop GT70 broke down after I updated BIOS, which I had to because my usb hard drive was keep on disconnecting all the time.
So update from previous article, my laptop finally arrived to Poland from Austria. It took garbage Austrian company 2 weeks to send a simple laptop to Poland, because garbage MSI has only one service venter in Europe.
I was so happy to buy a new laptop 6 months back, I praised my MSI GT70 Laptop in this video. But MSI sucks!! My laptop broke down after 6 months of usage. And all I need is a working laptop so I can travel and relax. But now MSI fucked me over really good. I have to wait 2 months to get it repaired so meanwhile I am stuck at home unable to travel and go back to Thailand.
Yes, that is true. I asked the boss to fire me, it was my first real job for an insurance company in Europe. It was just killing me. The worse was getting up each day at 7 am and driving to work. I lived in a small apartment, where you could hear the neighbor fart, yes the walls were that thin. I hate to wake up in the morning and going to unproductive office where I would call customers all day. I was exhausted each day and under stress for a measly pay. After my university graduation I worked only like 1 year, after that I was so happy to quit my job!!
I stayed for quite some time for spiritual reasons in small Brazilian village/town. It is so away from civilization. Farmers use horses as car replacement. You get a regular shortage of electricity. It happened like a lot, I would say at least six days in a month. And people are obsessed with elections and politics. The firecrackers, rockets, can be heard all day and all night in the months before elections. Quite funny. How many Brazilians are, in fact, missing fingers?
Another city I visited for a day. Goiania, claimed as one of the most dangerous cities in Brazil. In bus station, bus station clerks told me stories how buses coming to Goiania are often robbed, so bus drivers never stop and pick up people from beside the road. Goiania must be really dangerous, if you are afraid to pick up people who are waiting for a bus. And that is true. I was waiting for a bus in a village going to Goiania, and there was a bus going to Goianina passing me every few minutes. I tried to stop them with my hand. They waved back and show me a no-no sign.
This is my last day in Brazil. I haven't gone to Rio de Janeiro at all, only the first day after I waited for a plane to Brazil's capital Brasilia. I have stayed in Brazil almost one year. 11 and half month to be exact. Brazil is different country, different culture. I was thinking hey Brazil is close to Mexico. They must have burrito stands all over the place and Mexican food. You wish. I think Brazilians are too proud people. And that is so stupid. They have high import taxes, over 40%.
I started to buy things on ebay this year, because here in Brazil, the goods are overpriced because of high import tax, and also Brazil's shops don't have a lot of different brands that I love. I bought like 10 products this year. However, I would say to be careful when buying on eBay. It takes time until you receive the shipment, and you have 45 days to complain to paypal. I bought water bottle Podium Big Chill From CAMELBAK, and the company claims there is no plastic taste from the bottle. I have been using this bottle for a while, and it is just horrible.
Pattaya is the toughest city I ever visited in my life. There are murders going on all the time, killings, stealing, fights, teenagers beating on old whities. I mean is there a type of crime that you don't read about every week in local Pattaya newspaper?
