March Digital Nomad Blog Carnival

Photo by: =xAv=

Welcome to the March 17, 2010 edition of Cody McKibben’s Digital Nomad Blog Carnival.

I am very pleased to present a wide range of posts this month.  Some are from voices who are widely recognized in the nomadic blogging community and others are from bloggers who bring fresh new material to the discussion.

We start with a group of Nomading Life posts from current travelers on finding housing in Melbourne, Australia, savoring the unplanned moments, and enjoying great travel reading.

Interestingly, (maybe because it’s tax time in the U.S.), we received several posts related to making money, saving money and saving for retirement.  I couldn’t help but throw in a recent Nu Nomad post we did on taxes as well since there seemed to be a theme building. I’ve called this second group Money Money Money!

Thanks to everyone who submitted their writing!  And to our readers — enjoy!

Nomading Life

Eric Niebler presents Melbourne and the Housing Search posted at e-Yurt, saying, “musings on lining up temporary housing rentals, and an ode to melbourne”
Cherie Ve Ard presents Take the Serendipity Challenge posted at Tales from Technomadia, saying, “In our experience, as a rule, awesome things tend to happen when you?re not a slave to a pre-planned schedule. This is our invitation to invite Serendipity into your life.”
Alan presents Location Reading: Calling All Bookworms, Travelers posted at the 9 to 5 alternative, saying, “Aggregating the best travel books and sorting them by country/region. This is phase one of my “Location Reading” project!”
Money Money Money!

Austin Morgan presents How to Save for Retirement While Working Abroad posted at Foreigners Finances, saying, “A look at the different ways you can save for retirement if you’re location independent and working abroad.”

John R. Sedivy presents Realizing Your Dreams Through Bartering | Analytica posted at Analytica, saying, “Although I’m technically not a nomad at this point I do enjoy your blog. The article I submitted is on bartering which I believe is a means to designing one’s ideal lifestyle.”

Adam Baker presents The ?Do What You Love? Show: Episode 2 ? Dan & Ian Put The Freedom in ?Freedom Business? posted at Man Vs. Debt.

Thursday Bram presents 6 Phone Apps That Will Save You a Fortune ? Life Scoop posted at Life Scoop. If you’re an I-phone enthusiast, these apps will help you control your finances while you’re on the road.

Byteful Travel presents How to Get Paid to Travel 1,000 miles: Craigslist posted at Byteful Blog, saying, “If you want to become more confident and live a more inspired life, travel is one of the best uses of your time, but people often perceive travel as being a luxury commodity. Today, I dispel that belief. Last year I travelled over 6,000 miles around the USA, and about 90% of those miles were traversed using Craigslist rides, so today I?m going to explain my method for dramatically reducing the cost of travelling from Point A to Point B, as well as how you might even make some money from doing it, like I did.”

NuNomad presents Can a Nomad Deduct Travel Expenses on Their Tax Return? posted right here at NuNomad.  Our friend and resident expert accountant, Joseph Smith, EA, specializes in travel tax and wrote this informative post for us.
