Alright, let’s assume you got your remote working life all figured all. You learned all the important skills. You have a flexible schedule. You can set your home office with ease. You can manage working with different time zones flawlessly. You acquired the habit of staying fit while working remotely. You learned which remote-work software is the best fit for you.

Ideally, your income comes from the one the strongest economies in the world, so your currency is valuated.

What if you could live and work, from north to south?

We decided to browse some monthly rentals around the world to see how much space and quality of life you can get with an average solid-economies salary and spending 35% of that on rental (if you care to know, we averaged salaries from US, Canada, UK, Japan, Singapore and Australia).

A quick disclaimer: we’re using Airbnb as reference, so expect long-term rentals to be considerably less expensive than what we will shown here.

Ok then, come with me and let’s see what the same amount of monthly rental can get you around the world.

Originally from Brazil, living in Tokyo since 2017. 
Remote worker since 2012.
Favorite thing about remote work:
My 5 seconds commute from desk to couch when work time is over;
being able to crank up the air conditioner as I see fit.
