Working 9-5 staring at the same four walls five days a week can lead to a very tedious and boring life. Sitting at your desk, dreaming of the sun, sea, and sand. Well, CoWorkation is calling! This new sensation that you can be on vacation without having to sacrifice your career is becoming increasingly popular around the world.
CoWorkation allows for many different types of independent professionals such as co-workers, digital nomads, and freelancers to engage in work activities in this ‘temporary office’ while holidaying for 1-2 weeks in some of the most beautiful locations around the world.
CoWorkation promotes collaboration and drives the idea that we can all help each other in one way or another to better ourselves and further our career. Furthermore, being in a stunning location surrounded by white sand and clear blue ocean can act as a catalyst for motivation to work, leading to higher productivity levels. Traveling to some of these beautiful places such as Thailand, Costa Rica and Bali can really bring out the creative and imaginative side in people, potentially leading to rapid business growth or alternatively act as the perfect innovation incubator.
UBUD a small town located on the breath-taking island of Bali is one of the most popular destinations for CoWorkation. One of the most recent spaces ‘Outpost’ boasts spectacular views, comfy chairs and the best internet connection. The perfect place to take yourself and co-workers to escape the monotonous every day work routine at home.
An alternative to UBUD is Canggu, also located in Bali. It’s all about ‘sun, fun and getting stuff done’ as stated in their slogan. Resorts such as La Laguna and Blue Heaven will ensure you are fully immersed in the CoWorkation culture in order to provide the best results for either you as an individual or collectively as a team.
CoWorkation is also very popular here, in the wonderful city of Barcelona. The city to country experience promises to give you the best of both worlds. The hustle and bustle of the city centre will contrast nicely with the peacefulness of Catalunya where you can relax after a long day in the city. As well as providing you with a beautiful location, Codino and Pandorahub have teamed up to offer a week full of workshops, meditation and good food.
