At the beginning of your digital nomad adventure did you find difficult to be on your own? If yes, how did you overcome it?

Answered by Jacob Laukaitis, marketer

To be honest, not really...

Every time I travel actively - ride motorbikes, hike mountains, go diving, island-hopping, etc., I'm so occupied with all of my daily activities that I don't even have the time to think about loneliness - there's just too much happening!

However, every time I do a 'retreat' (spend 1-2 months in one place and focus on work), I do get a little lonely at times since I get a lot of 'free time' and even though I usually have a lot of local friends, those connections are not as strong as the ones I've formed back home.

So the reason I never felt lonely at the beginning of my travels was simply because I was traveling so actively I hardly found the time to sleep haha!
