My Fabulous Digital Nomad Workspaces Of The Past Year

A little over a year ago, my husband, our 2-year old daughter and I boarded a plane to Spain — the first one of 18 planes in 12 months — to embark on a big adventure. Project title: paternity leave abroad.

After a short stop in Madrid, our second plane brought us directly to La Palma, La Isla Bonita, the first of 18 locations in 12 months. Our luggage decided to arrive two days later. So much for a perfect start.

But apart from that small incident, things went rather well. Our careful planning, which lasted months, has been worth every single minute and allowed us to relax, discover, and … work. While my husband got to test dozens of new playgrounds in his temporary role as a full-time dad, I was spoiled with workspaces close to nature. Nothing boosts my creativity more than a panoramic view.

Curious yet?
Here are my workspaces of the past year, including my all time favorite: Parua Bay, Northland, New Zealand. Gotta 💜 being a digital nomad. Would I do it again? Anytime!

Photo Essay: El Hierro

After visiting El Hierro, the smallest of the Canary Islands, I have been approached several times by people asking us how much time to spend there. Obviously, it all depends on your holiday style. If you love spending quiet days at the beach you can stay there forever. But if you are interested in visiting all the popular corners recommended in travel guides, I’d say 1 week is perfect, especially if you travel with kids and don’t want to (read can’t) go at a crazy speed.

Here are my personal highlights from our week in El Hierro. Please click through the gallery to read the captions for more details…

And here is a short bonus video of some crabs in La Caleta, fighting against the strong waves of the sea. I filmed this on our way out from the public pools in La Caleta. Who’s up for a bath?

The blue hour is not only my happy hour :)

Before moving to the Canary Islands for 3 months, I had read in several travel guides that the Spanish archipelago is a perfect location to capture stunning sunrises and sunsets above the mountains and the sea. As you can see, I was not disappointed!

Here is my personal list of the best places on the Canary Islands to catch amazing, colorful and inspiring sunrises and sunsets. Happy shooting!

I Did It: Tandem Paragliding In Tenerife

Paragliding has been something that I wanted to do since ages. #BucketList

After watching heaps of curageous people with a parachute landing at the beach in front of our apartment in Puertito de Güimar for two months, it was time to book a seat for myself. #DailyTemptation

Because I simply love looking at things from above and I show no signs of vertigo. #LuckyMe

So all I had to do, was to run 5 steps down a volcano, hold the GoPro, lean back and enjoy. #AnytimeAgain
