Just as the name implies, with Unsettled, you don’t have to settle for staying in one location for too long (though you can if you prefer!). It’s for travelers of all ages, and you can get away for a week, two weeks, or a month at a time, in locales like Tuscany, Patagonia, and Bali.

Whether you want to work remotely for a week, a month, four months, or a year — and you’re at least 21 — you can do so with Remote Year. You can spend four months in four countries or 12 in an “around the world” journey, exploring a new country each month, from Mexico to Portugal to Japan (for example).

Intrepid is geared for travelers from 18 to 29 years old and has all kinds of trips, from women’s expeditions to co-ed ones, from a few days to a few weeks. Want to head to Asia? Africa? Antarctica? Chances are, you’ll find a destination that’s been on your go-to list.

Sojrn calls itself a “modern study abroad for adults” and has one-month themed trips to destinations, including “Fashion in Paris,” “History in Rome,” and “Mental Wellness in Bali.” So it is like you’re “studying,” in a way — but without the stress of report cards or grades.

If you’re an entrepreneur who wants to be surrounded, and inspired, by other entrepreneurs, you can do so with CoworkParadise, a mastermind retreat. Upcoming locations include Bali (two weeks or three) and Croatia (eight days), and other European locations are TBD.

If you want to spend a month in Cape Town with other remote workers and digital nomads, look into Work Wanderers. In addition to getting to know the city, you’ll also get to know your fellow freelancers and entrepreneurs through the co-living aspect of the co-working community.

If you think Hacker Paradise sounds like it’s just for software developers — wrong! Participants have also included game designers, music writers, and more. Programs are two weeks, a month, or three to 12 months, in amazing places like Italy, Argentina, and South Africa.

If you’re looking for a month-long working-remotely experience — wherein you can also give back to the local community, like in Mexico City or Lisbon — check out Venture With Impact. They call themselves a “co-working retreat,” and in 2023, they’ll launch one-week retreats, too.
