All Good in Portugal!

BR, Ignas

During my second year at Vilnius University, I had a burning desire to travel and experience life abroad. However, the COVID-19 pandemic dashed my hopes as international travel came to a standstill. After finishing my studies, I joined Nortal, a company that perfectly aligned with my values and offered a program called "Nortal Nomad," enabling me to grab my suitcase and code globally. Without hesitation, I revisited my postponed plan to explore Portugal.

I began my adventure in Porto, where I immersed myself in its rich history and unique atmosphere.

A cozy coworking space, Porto i/o, became my productive oasis, connecting me with fellow digital nomads. Maintaining a work-life balance in a new city had its challenges, but I managed to explore Porto’s wonders while reserving evenings for leisure. Surprisingly, I developed a newfound passion for surfing, indulging in weekend sessions. 

After two memorable weeks in Porto, I moved on to Lisbon, a city teeming with life and character.

Lisbon’s vibrant neighborhoods, historical landmarks, and culinary delights enriched my experience, and a day trip to Sintra added to the wonder of it all.

Throughout the journey, I encountered challenges that taught me valuable life lessons. I embraced adaptability and resilience, cherishing every moment life bestowed upon me.

This nomadic experience affirmed my belief that such a lifestyle could be both personally fulfilling and professionally rewarding. If you share a passion for travel and exploration, I wholeheartedly encourage you to take a leap of faith into the world of digital nomads. Let the world be your canvas of endless possibilities, and your soul will forever carry the imprints of your unforgettable adventures.
