It’s the time of the month when we share the progress report of a month & I’m pretty excited to share many interesting things that have happened in August. At the same time, I’m thrilled to inform you of what we are doing in this month. For now let’s do a quick recap of August, followed by Traffic & income report. My first experience as travel & work: Have you heard this term as Digital Nomad?
