I think there's a lot of room for these kinds of products/services. The traditional digital nomads travel mostly alone and figure out most stuff themselves (which is fun too), but the future nomads will be 'ordinary' people that want to work from different places. And they need services to support them. That's what I'm working on too. Update 2017 (after 3y): I don't think it should cost $27,000 to travel the world in 2017. A flight is $500, remote jobs are now available and coworking and coliving spaces around the world provide community. It's mostly a solved problem now.

Traveling with 100 randoms seem like a limitation. Easier to just travel by yourself or with one friend. Leave at a moment's notice, try different cities when you decide you get bored... faster. My roommate did that for 2ish months while building

I'd love to work like that but I was wondering: Do you need a work-visa to do this?
