Figure out your budget, and where to go
If you got a freelancing job and is thinking about where to go, you might have to make a budget of what you need; nowadays many websites offer a rough estimate of a monthly living cost in some countries.

Your freelance job might require you to contact your clients regarding the order or task that you might have to do, but most of the time your client is going to live somewhere far away from you, and this will take you some time to get adjusted. Another tip from us is to let your clients or customers know that you’re living in another country, as this will save you from a headache from missed calls or messages during the time you should be sleeping or rest.
Find your comfortable workspace
You won’t get inspiration or feel productive if you’re always working in your apartment or hostel, so go outside and try to find your workspace. Cafes or coworking spaces might be the best choice as they usually offer the best space to work, while providing drinks and access to the internet, opt for coworking spaces if you want a quieter place, as cafes can be covered with chit-chats which are noisy and can disturb your concentration. Not a fan of going out? Make sure you have a comfortable workspace, close the windows to prevent bugs from going in, or perhaps wear thicker clothes if it’s very cold in the place you’re staying.
