My name is Jeanette, also known as JC from Holland, I guess because of my lifestyle of work and travel you can call me a digital nomad. But I am not an average digital nomad.
Average Nomads are 30-something, travel a lot, own a huge backpack, live or work in tribes, mostly in Nomad Hotspots, and their core income is online income.
- am over 60 (born in 1961)
- dislike Nomad Hotspots
- do not work or travel in tribes
- do not own a huge backpack
- travel slow, very slow, meaning I stay in one country for a long period of time and travel in that specific country.
- travel on a motorcycle.
- haven’t got all my income eggs in one (online) basket.
And there is more to know about me, that is why I write.
Here on Floating Coconut, but also on my Dutch website Leaving Holland.
