Reprogramming Ourselves From The Comforts of Home

Sunset in Zielonki, as painted by Czupur the cat We return to a “normal” rhythm here at DigitalNomad.Blog. My new workmates think I am extraordinary Like one of those things pretty much everybody else in most of the world has: A home, a routine, abundant cuddles. Travel has slowed down.
