    In fact, he has even chalked up an itinerary for himself: He wants to visit 52 countries in 52 weeks. “I came up with the idea after seeing people in co-working spaces around the world, working as digital nomads.”

    Why 52 weeks in particular? “I’d like to spend time and immerse (myself) in every destination, so the best would be to spend a week in each country,” he explains further.

    “I’d plan the itinerary so that I get the best season at each destination. (Maybe) Auckland during their summer, and work my way up and around till I get to Buenos Aires. Summers in both hemispheres,” he adds.
