10 Things I look for in a good remote work destination

I have the benefit of being able to work completely remotely, so I try to travel frequently. I figure that I won't have this opportunity forever, so I want to make the most of my job conditions for now. Here's an idea list that explains a few of the factors that impact my choice of place.

    1. Good wifi

    Absolutely essential for work

    2. Security

    Lately I've been traveling with friends, but, as a frequent solo female traveler, security is very important to me. 

    3. Time zone

    Most of my team is on EST, so I try to work from this time zone as much as possible.

    4. A feeling of discovery

    This is hard to describe, but it's one of my favorite things about traveling. I love seeing new places.

    5. Good food

    I love eating, so this is one of my favorite parts of going anywhere. By "good" food I don't mean expensive food but simply tasty local cuisine.

    6. A good currency conversion rate

    These fluctuate constantly, so it's not like currency conversion rates factor immensely into my decision. Still- I do try to take advantage of places where the dollar is strong.

    7. Purchasing power

    Similarly to the last point, I try to prioritize places where my salary goes a long way.

    8. Good weather

    Good can mean warm or cool, but typically just not rainy.

    9. Cheap flights

    Back to the monetary considerations... a place can meet all my other criteria, but if it costs an arm and a leg to get there, I'm probably not going.

    10. I speak the language

    This is more of a "nice to have" than a "need to have", but it makes the whole trip easier and less intimidating.
