Unfortunately, Digital Nomad lifestyle is not suitable for you.
Your attitude shows that remote work and digital nomad style of life may be unsuitable for you. You are aware that being constantly on a journey may causes loneliness, exhaustion and unproductiveness. Advantages of working away from stable office are not sufficient for you to quit your current lifestyle and discover the world while having job at the same time.
