Coworking spaces for the Working Backpacker


In the early '70s, when hippies came to India, they came with money that would suffice to live in India for long enough until they would have to go back to their country to earn.

As decades went by and technology advanced, hippies and backpackers started traveling with work from place to place.

Working from cafes and coworking spaces/hostels is a culture that began in India just about a decade ago.

Most backpackers cannot stay away from their love for nature and need to escape into lands unknown; what better way to take up the travel life if you can take your well-paying job along.
