Marcus Meurer and Felicia Hargarten organized the first DNX ★ Digital Nomad Conference in 2014 after being on the road as digital nomads for several years. Before becoming a digital nomad and online entrepreneur, Marcus followed the classic corporate career path. Felicia got self employed to follow her passion: Traveling the world. They came directly after organizing the first DNX GLOBAL ★ Digital Nomad Conference in Berlin where they gathered and connected more than 450 digital nomads around the globe.
How was your stay at bedndesk?
It was just awesome. We decided very spontaneously to go to Mallorca after we met Matias on our DNX GLOBAL Conference (www.dnxglobal.com) in Berlin. We got along with him very well from the very first moment and needed a location change after the event anyway.
We didn’t know what to expect at all. The bedndesk is the perfect oasis for Digital Nomads. It is very centrally located, but still in a quiet street with a local supermarket and even a gym just around the corner, where you can also use day passes.
The apartments are very comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. We love to cook by ourselves. You even get an app to open the doors to the apartment and the office. I loved the colourful interior design and the rooftop terrace. Here and there you could find some elements printed by the 3-D printer of Matias.
Good thing that we also printed our DNX logo and the infinity sign, right?
Bedndesk has a Skype room and great coffee in the office. By the way, if you need a break, you can play table tennis.
What do you think about mallorca as a workation place?
We just love islands. Mallorca is very easy to reach from all over Europe. When we weren’t working, we rented a scooter and made some great excursions on the island. We went to the East Coast to Cala Varques. When you see the colour of the water there you think you are in the Caribbean. Another great trip was to the north to Port de Pollenca. We had a great hike there, leading to a hidden beach. The scenery on the way was amazing, and here and there we met some cute mountain goats. Oh, and did I tell you about Banyalbufar? It’s as nice as Valldemossa, but with less tourists. We went there and had an awesome night. We had a long night of meteor watching from a lovely ruin. Definitely take a bike ride from bedndesk to Palma along the coast, if you have a chance. Bedndesk on Mallorca is the perfect place to be productive and explore a beautiful island at the same time.
When are you coming back to bedndesk?
From Mallorca we directly headed to Lisbon, Portugal to organize our DNX CAMP. Right now we are back in Berlin for a couple of weeks. In October, we are going to the Canary Islands, and from there to Brazil by boat, where we will spend the winter until the beginning of next year. From the beginning of December, we have our DNX CAMP in Jericoacoara in northern Brazil, and hopefully we’ll also make it to Rio this time. Then it’s off to Asia and, in May 2016, back to Berlin. After that, we will come back to bedndesk Mallorca. But this time we will definitely stay at least 1 month.
