New York State has so much to offer for a road-trip and while living van life! New York State is not only home to the largest city in the USA, but it also offers vast natural beauty, scenic wilderness, forests, mountains, waterfalls, beaches, historic towns with lots of charm and friendly vibes.
After we had spent three months in New York City for a work gig during the Summer of 2019, we headed North, first into the Hudson Valley, and from there explored the rest of New York State with our self-converted campervan.
Since #vanlife is not as popular on the East Coast as it is on the West Coast, it was pretty easy to find overnight parking without any hassle. Of course, there are also plenty of campgrounds available for those who prefer to stay at campsites or State Parks, and public forests as well.
On our trip we visited the following areas, towns, and cities: -Appalachian Trail outside of Harriman State Park -Newburgh -New Paltz -Poughkeepsie -Kingston -Beacon -Rhinebeck -Keene -Adirondacks and hiking trail up to Hurricane Mountain -Saranac Lake -Ithaca -Robert H. Treman State Park outside of Ithaca -Niagara Falls -Buffalo
During our trip through New York State, we were invited to do three interviews for our Sustainable Living series with the Omega Center for Sustainable Living, the Saranac Lake Inn and Local Roots NYC. See both interviews linked here:
This is a day in the life of a digital nomad – or rather one of the many versions or our days as nomads while working from the road.
We are Eliane and Damian, two outdoor enthusiasts who became digital nomads, live and travel full time in a self-converted cargo van and sometimes we stay in our travel trailer, in a tent, in Airbnbs or Hotel rooms. We travel full time while working remotely and on location and are striving to live eco-friendly as possible and love to share our experience, journey and knowledge with you.
This is how we make a living while working remotely and from different locations:
