    Default WFH, in the sun

    There's the Estonian digital nomad visa:

    Digital Nomad Visa | e-Residency

    There's the remote working from Barbados:

    Barbados Welcome Stamp '-' Work Remotely In Barbados

    Now there is the Greek digital migrant tax break:

    Greece to offer 50% tax break for returning professionals and ‘digital migrants’ – EURACTIV.com
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Wasn't there some deal in Vegas too? I think that may have been more around hotel discounts than a visa offering though.

    Why is it not a holiday if your idea of being on holiday is coding at a laptop?

    Then you could just stay in the office and save some money which you could then invest in Bitcoin...

    One of our contractors had just joined us and had a holiday booked. The other party in the project changed the deadline so he had to attend some calls from Spain.

    We ripped him about coming to business meetings in speedos (He is a retired Grandfather Welshman who built a pub in his garden and a good laugh) .

    He seemed to enjoy the arrangement.

    You know you only work half the time you are awake.
