One of the things that I also like about traveling is the connection I get to have with people. We digital nomads are aware that constant movement could create the false impression that we are unable to develop lasting friendships or have good friends. We like to break down the stereotype that a friendship needs years to develop, because, in actuality, our connections are just fast and intense, and no less meaningful than other friendships.
I had the opportunity to share quality time with almost every one of the team members. We laughed, we learned and we talked about things outside of work. We connected and I was grateful that new friendships were forming.
Discovering the island was a great experience. I found that Tenerife is like a box full of surprises, and two weeks are just not enough for you to enjoy all of what the island has to offer. I did paragliding, I went to a surprise party, I was impressed by the impetuous Teide, and I cooked and hosted my friends at home. I also went to black sand beaches, and desert sand beaches. It was incredible. It is like a small world complete with different climates zones. There’s no doubt as to why almost everyone who comes here to spend just a month ends up staying for more than a year!
Being a Digital Nomad trainer at SEOintheSUN has also helped me with my personal plans for the future. In those two weeks, I was more productive than usual. I could work from home, enjoy a breathtaking sunset or visit the co- working space and enjoy the best Barraquito in town. I was finally working on my personal projects and being encouraged to explore new opportunities. I completely recommend this venture to future trainers and I’m looking forward to going back someday. Tenerife is now on my list of the places that I need to keep discovering.
Thanks to everyone who made this possible!
