Почему-то у многих сложился стереотип, что фрилансеры круглый год живут на Бали) Лично у меня с переходом на удаленную работу место жительства не поменялась, но путешествовать стала намного чаще, это факт.

Многие знакомые мне фрилансеры живут в Таиланде или во Вьетнаме.Цены там недорогие, и на жилье и на питание.

Фрилансеру сейчас лучше выбрать тот город или страну, где безопаснее. В ЕС высокий уровень заболеваемости, а вот в Таиланде – безопасно.
