Ever since the start of the pandemic, most jobs have turned into home offices. Now, although the world seems to be taking steps to turn back to normality, many jobs will not be the same for some time, or maybe they have changed forever. Since returning to office seems distant, a new travel trend has emerged: Workation.

What is Workation?

For many people, being trapped all day into the 4 walls of their home took a toll on their productivity at work. So, this new travel trend is where working and vacation join together. This means turning vacation destinations into your temporary office. It can be in your area, country, or abroad. The choice is yours. During the pandemic, there have been lots of burnout workers. So, this trend is a chance to get out of the ordinary, have more networks, and helps workers become more creative during their work process.

Workation in Albania and the Balkans

Albania and the Balkans can be great destinations for workation. Starting from the Albanian coast, there are plenty of options to choose from. Whether you want your office to be on the sandy Adriatic coast or rocky and mountainous South Riviera, it will definitely be refreshing. Similarly with Montenegro and the south Croatian coast. You can either choose one of the destinations or even move around the Balkans as you work and enjoy the scenery and culture of the region. There are exclusive hotel packages for workation travelers to make sure you have everything you need during your stay.

Things to consider when choosing a workation

Although workation seems like a dream job for many people, there are still some things to consider before jumping on the trend. Depending on your destination you must pay attention to some legal issues. Firstly, you must check if the country you are going to, requires a visa or a residence/work permit. Next up, you will probably have to pay attention to the destination’s labor laws, taxation, and social security. If you plan to stay in one country for a long time (usually more than 4 weeks), you might have to comply with this new country’s legislation and not with the one in your home country. However, Albania and the Balkans have similar regulations to Europe. Therefore, it is not difficult to figure out the necessary steps, if you plan to stay for a long period in one of the countries.

So, if you have been dreaming to get away but work at the same time then this new trend is perfect for you and our region has a lot to offer.
