A few weeks ago, I wrote to you about the captivating Netflix series, “Live to 100: Secrets of the Blue Zones.” In this eye-opening documentary, a passionate researcher and author explored five unique regions around the world, each home to an unusually high number of centenarians.
One of these extraordinary places was Sardinia, Italy, a charming Mediterranean island. The sheer beauty and atmosphere of this Italian gem left a lasting impression on me, igniting a desire to explore it further.
Surprisingly, not long after that blog post, I stumbled upon an email in my personal inbox from the renowned Travel & Leisure magazine. The subject line immediately caught my attention: “Digital Nomads Can Live for Free in Sardinia.”
Was it just a coincidence? Maybe. Or perhaps it was a subtle nod from the universe itself, urging me to seize this unique opportunity.
So, without hesitation, I submitted my application. If my application gets the green light, I could be granted the incredible chance to reside in Sardinia for up to three months, all without the burden of rent.
The catch? I’d be expected to share my knowledge and experiences with the local community. Not a bad deal if you ask me!
Sardinia, like many other places, is facing a dwindling population. However, it’s also on the cusp of embracing the digital age, with high-speed internet finally making its way to remote villages nestled within this charming island.
Eager to welcome fresh faces, the local municipality has extended an invitation to digital nomads, inviting them to make Sardinia their temporary home and become a part of its transformation.
Am I guaranteed acceptance? Well, it’s anyone’s guess. But in the words of the legendary hockey hall-of-famer Wayne Gretzky, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”
So, I’ve decided to go for it, and I encourage you to consider what exciting opportunities might have come knocking at your door recently.
What’s holding you back? Is it fear, the doubters, or the “shoulds” that clutter your mind? Sometimes, you just need to cut through the noise, take that leap of faith, and see where it leads you. You never know what incredible possibilities might unfold as a result!
