So I recently started working outdoors. It all started with my transition away from a macbook to a thinkpad x250 equipped with a super-bright screen and a built in 4G modem. I’m using Vodafone and for an extra 4 euro a month I can get a 2nd SIM card that shares my current data plan. That is a pretty good price for having the flexibility and convenience of just being able to grab my laptop, walk somewhere nice and just start working there.
So far I’m taking a small backpack with headphones and power adapter in case I need to have a call or run out of power. It also allows me to just stash the laptop away while re-locating. The actual locations vary, from coffee shops, plains to hidden seaside spots. All within walking distance from home. Before I started this my daily pedometer would show three digit numbers (which is unhealthy and embarrassing). I now easily get to 10K without any effort which is a huge improvement.
I was wondering if anyone else has been trying that and can share some advice. What to do, what not to do. As a small tease, this is how it looks like from the point of view of my partner
