  1. Hi Travis and Terry.

    I am recent newcomer to your wonderful podcast. I came across this recent post on great locations for Digital Nomads and would like to add wonderful cities like Copenhagen and Stockholm, starting base for Zendesk, Skype and Spotify. Both recognized to be start up cities to watch for, http://thenextweb.com/eu/2011/09/25/something-is-rocking-in-the-state-of-denmark-why-copenhagen-is-a-startup-city-to-watch/http://tech.co/top-startup-cities-where-entrepreneurs-want-to-meet-up-2015-02

    Being a proud Dane who recently moved to Berlin and joined the start up scene just wanted to highlight that the nordics, beside from cold winters are providing a great scene to digital nomads.

    Thank you for a great podcast and keep up the good work.

    Best regards


  2. Sounds cool! I spent a semester in Stockholm during college and made a brief stop to Copenhagen in 2010. Lovely place!
