A lot of people who move to Brazil turn to teaching English to get by. But in this digital age, there are many other opportunities to take advantage of – like becoming a digital nomad. But what does that mean? What skills do you need? And how do you get started? In this series, Christian Taylor will share all the must-have tips, tricks and advice to help you kick things off.
For years I’ve wanted to move to Brazil, but life has always been in the way – until now.
My name is Christian Taylor and I’ve finally set my moving date – over the coming months I’ll be blogging about my experiences as I make the leap to the sunny shores of Florianópolis in Santa Catarina to start my new Brazilian life.
About a year ago, I decided to make a drastic decision that would alter the course of my life forever…
…and as it appears, yours too.
It was the end of 2013 and I was diligently spending 30-40 hours per week creating content and helping people on this site… and what happened next changed everything…
Hey folks, it’s been a while since I’ve posted here and with good reason…
Things have taken off for me in a way that I never imagined possible: I’ve now grown to have the second largest online English school in Brazil! Though in the meantime, this blog has continued in my heart.
It is neither forgotten nor abandoned, and therefore when a friend of mine named James asked if he could put some content up… I naturally hoped on it: the opportunity to get new stuff up and help a buddy out is a win-win!
Without further ado, here is a post from James from Semantica:

This is even more amplified when you make the leap to live in Brazil, there are some people who just are not willing to make things work…
…it usually manifests itself in the form of comparing things back home to those in Brazil and develops from there.
While many of us clearly understand that this is an apples to oranges comparison, this doesn’t come without someone setting things in our community straight from time to time.
And today we have the enforcer himself in our midst: Mark Hillary. Read More
Here sitting at my desk on a grey and foggy Danish morning while taking one for the team as my wife finishes her thesis, I’m purchasing flight tickets to Brazil.
As I look through the jungle of fare prices and restrictions, the same feelings and thoughts that once raced through my mind and body during the original days of planning our move to Brazil, have come again.
Though, for us this isn’t something new, we are used to almost robotically going through the steps required to prepare for a big move and it’s as if everything falls into place on it’s own.
