Details

This month's workation will take us to a remote place but not far away from Barcelona. We will get together for productive work in the mountains. Join us on this 5-day event with other location-independent people.

Our place to be will be Nectar - rural co-working/living. (www.nectarconectar.com (http://www.nectarconectar.com/)). It's a Catalan farmhouse at the foot of the majestic Pyrenees.

The owners Olga and Tai just opened the place recently. They turned it into a haven for remote and inspiring work. Nectar has stunning views high above a beautiful lake. The place is surrounded by deep forests, canyons and a lot of creative vibe in the midst of nature.

A workation? What is this?

A workation is a new concept of remote working. It's all about getting stuff done from inspiring places. And meeting like-minded people, who are curious about, or already living a location-independent life.

If you just need an internet connection to earn money, or can do some conceptual work offline for a few days. you are already location-independent. You don't have to get your tasks done from the same office every day. You are even more productive if you hang out with other super-motivated people! Especially at a place which is just made for focused work. And in company of organizers who know exactly what the remote workers needs.

But it's not all about working hard. As you are highly efficient, you will have more time left to enjoy the rest of the day. With good conscience, you can spend the afternoon doing leisure activities. Explore the surroundings, do exercise, learn new skills or just have a good time with the other guests.

So, what will happen on this workation?

We have set it up as a five-day event. But as the place is open all year round, feel free to stay shorter or longer.

We can travel together from Barcelona by train or car. But we can meet us also straight at the place.
