Building Community: Dean Kuchel's 3rd Zagreb Visit in 2022 on Christmas Day

December 28, 2021 - Zagreb is a 365-day nomad city, as the Croatian capital's favourite Israeli nomad Dean Kuchel found out on his latest building community mission. The thing about digital nomads, I am learning, is that they seem to think the whole world exists on their schedules, and that we can all adapt. "Paul, I am coming back to Zagreb for the third time. I love that city. So let's meet." "Fantastic. It will be great to see you, but I also want to talk to you more about CROMADS and how we get some of your community of…

7 Ambassadors, 6 Months, 1 Great Digital Nomad Destination: Zagreb

December 30, 2021 - As Zagreb continues its journey to become a great digital nomad destination, a collection of thoughts from its 7 digital nomad ambassadors. They say that all good things come to an end, but I have a feeling that things are only just beginning as we close the Zagreb Digital Nomad Week & Ambassador program, which has been an unqualified success.  Just a few months ago, Zagreb was not really on the nomad radar at all, but that has changed considerably, with the Croatian capital even making the top 5 most-liked cities in the world in the…

Steve Tsentserensky on Zagreb Ambassador Digital Nomad Life in December

December 28, 2021 - Zagreb Digital Nomad Special Guest Ambassador Steve Tsentserensky reflects on life in the Croatian capital in December. If there is a bigger fan of Zagreb, I have yet to meet that person.  Of all the digital nomads who have spent time in the Croatian capital this year (and there have been many), few have been as visible as Steve Tsentserensky from Cleveland, Ohio. One of the first recipients of the Croatian digital nomad permit back in March, Steve has been very active travelling around the country, but all roads ultimately lead back to his true Croatian…

Zagreb Digital Nomad December Ambassadors Interviewed by Index.hr (VIDEO)

December 21, 2021 - Zagreb Digital Nomad December Ambassadors Anna Maria Kochanska from Poland and Steve Tsentserensky from USA interviewed in the Index.hr studio.  It has been quite a year for Zagreb and its digital nomad journey.  It is 18 months since Dutch entrepreneur Jan de Jong wrote an open letter to Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic asking him to implement a digital nomad visa.  Things moved very quickly after that. Plenkovic announced his intention to introduce the visa some 44 days later, and it came into effect on January 1 this year. A variety of high-profile events, including the…

How Will Digital Nomads Spend Christmas Holidays in Croatia?

December 20, 2021 - As the festive family holidays approach, will it be a lonely one for digital nomads? Not in Croatia - a look at how nomads spend Christmas holidays in Croatia.  When I did my last major trip back in 2001, I hardly met anyone on the road in 9 months, apart from the many people who hosted me on the road. I spent a lot of time alone, which is fine as I really like my own company.  Often I would arrive at a destination, spend 2-3 days there, look around and not speak to anyone apart…

Global Nomad Guide: Croatia has Best Digital Nomad 'Visa'

December 18, 2021 - More good PR for Croatia's digital nomad story, as the Global Nomad Guide ranks the Croatian digital nomad permit as the best 'visa' currently on offer for nomads.  It is far from perfect, and there have been many suggestions on how to improve it, but it seems that Croatia is doing something right with its recently introduced digital nomad permit, according to a recent analysis on available visas by Global Nomad Guide.  With an expert score of 7.4, Croatia's 'visa' was judged to currently be the best on offer. Also encouraging with the pros and cons,…

Zagreb Digital Nomad Jolly Wrap Up: an Advent Hit

December 17, 2021 - A Zagreb Jolly Wrap Up indeed, as the Croatian capital's successful digital nomad story is rounded off in style.  Advent in Zagreb 2021 is a little different to previous years, but I am beginning to like it. While we all want to get back to the frivolity of 2019, the pandemic has different ideas. I can't imagine what it must be like organising huge events at the moment, wondering if another wave will kill all the plans. And while this year's Advent is much less ostentatious than the glory years of 2016-2019, walking around the city…

Croatia Through the Eyes of a Digital Nomad: When Cro-Made Beats Store-Bought

December 7, 2021 - Abundant natural resources and a variety of locally-made products are Croatia’s secret to healthy living. Before arriving in Croatia, I was traveling in many countries learning about wellness practices in different parts of the world. I’m interested in how people think about their wellbeing and what role culture plays. From temazcal in Mexico to a curandera in Colombia, Reiki in Japan, and more, I experienced a variety of indigenous modalities. Once here, I looked for Croatia’s offer beyond the popular Mediterranean diet and the outdoor lifestyle. Initially, nothing seemed exceptional, but over time I noticed a pattern.…

Nimrod Dean Kuchel: Also Zagreb, The Perfect Destination for Digital Nomads

December 5, 2021 - Zagreb digital nomads are growing in number, and with endorsements like this from one of the rising stars of the nomad conference speaking scene, a lot more look set to follow.  Full disclosure - I really like the guy.  When Tanja Polegubic from Saltwater Nomads, my co-organiser of Zagreb Digital Nomad Week, together with the Zagreb Tourist Board, called me excitedly to say that an Israeli nomad with his own community of 25,000 nomads had agreed to fly to Zagreb to speak at our conference, it didn't register immediately on how significant this could be for…

Successful Zagreb Nomad Panel as Rax Suen Hands Over to Anna Maria Kochanska

December 1, 2021 - A great finish to the November ambassadorship of Rax Suen, as his Zagreb Nomad Panel brought 3 nomad ambassadors together, as well as providing plenty of food for thought at BIZkosnica last night.  It was a very engaging audience of locals, expats and nomads - the youngest of whom was just 13 - to attend the final night of the ambassadorship of Singaporean digital nomad, Rax Suen.  Rax chose the popular coworking space at BIZkoshnica on Ilica as his venue, with a very lively afterparty at Swanky Mint Hostel. HIs Nomad Table concept proved to be…
