There are plenty of cringeworthy buzzwords for those who don't like their working lives to be tied to one place. The hashtag-fluent millennials heading for Canggu or Chiang Mai tend to be “digital nomads,” “glomads,” or even “techno-gypsies,” while the more sober prefer simply to go with “location-independent”.
Once the preserve of tech-industry freelancers, the blending of work and leisure travel is becoming increasingly mainstream.
Whichever corporate policies win the day, there's little doubt that a growing band of increasingly untethered workers is set to change both work and travel. More and more of us might have to admit, perhaps with a grimace, that we are “glomads” now.
