The new age of digital nomads
For those of us set to be working from home for the foreseeable future, an array of exciting possibilities has opened up. No longer limited by rigid working hours, face-to-face meetings and the daily commute, we have increased our everyday leisure time, and can work from whichever base we find most convenient: our bed; the garden; a coffee shop – or even a different country.
The phrase ‘digital nomads’ was first bandied about over a decade ago, largely in reference to millennials seeking to break away from the constraints of the traditional workplace and wrangle the power of social media to make the world their office, but with traditional working models now being uprooted in all industries, people of all ages now also have the chance to seize this freedom.
Now that there is no need to return to the office, the concept of travel has also changed. Holidays no longer need to be limited to two-week escapes, but can instead be combined with work to allow for an extended break, giving us the rare opportunity to have an in-depth experience of our travel destination and truly reset our mind and body.
Sri Lanka’s diversity makes it a great destination for a long stay, whether you want to work to the soundtrack of the ocean, spend your weekends trekking, or while away mornings birdwatching in the countryside, and with a wide range of villas and small boutique hotels on offer – all of which are operating with new health and safety measures to safeguard guests – you will be spoiled for choice when it comes to finding your perfect accommodation.
