How To Be a Great Senior Digital Nomad Over 50

Senior Lifestyle Report: How To Be a Senior Digital Nomad in The Silver and Gold Years


Some savvy, sexy mature romantics are packing up their laptops, trading their homes for smaller home bases, or more mobile living quarters (like RVs and vans!) and they are hitting the road…Sometimes labelled: “modern nomads,” they are redefining retirement on their own terms.

The modern digital nomad lifestyle, often associated with the younger person eager to be a digital nomad, has taken a new twist with retired digital nomads. The idea of being able to work or manage their affairs remotely from anywhere in the world has some practical but adventurous seniors embracing this way of life. It’s a whole new way of thinking about retirement!

Won’t you please explore our collection below, of inspiring content covering this lifestyle for the older digital nomad, including discussion of the best digital nomad countries or nomadic life at 60?

The future digital nomad over 50 is reconsidering the prudence of settling into a quiet community to enjoy a slower pace of life. Instead, they are exploring new cities, towns, and countries while remotely maintaining their work and personal commitments. How does it sound to have a modest home base in a cold climate but live in a sunny Arizona vacation rental, pay bills and keep in touch with family from a café (while sipping a chai tea latte and wearing earbuds)?


Also known as the “laptop lifestyle,” the digital nomad life for retirees (or those still working) can have its ups and downs and pros and cons. We love revisiting a classic book (the updated version!) which acts as a great reference for anyone wanting to create more flexibility with their time and place…The Four Hour Workweek by Tim Ferris (which is a now a series of books all about optimizing for more time and money).

This newfound flexibility has never been more relevant. The digital nomadic lifestyle is about to become a source of freedom and adventure for many seniors who want to experience life to the fullest.  There are challenges, however for the silver nomads. Traveling can be physically demanding,  and it requires careful planning and budgeting. Additionally, maintaining a healthy work-life balance can be difficult when living on the road. However, many seniors who have embraced the nomad lifestyle have found ways to overcome these challenges and reap the rewards.

The benefits of location independence and the freedom to work and live on your terms (and on the senior nomads budget) are just too enticing for many seniors to pass up.
