Happy October and welcome to the 40th issue of ‘How Curious!’ ✌️
I’ve fully embraced the remote working lifestyle and would now struggle to return to any job requiring me to be present in an office again. Where you live and what you work on hugely influences your whole life, so decoupling these dependencies and optimising for each is amazing.
I spent all last month in Ireland. It was great to get so much time with family and friends. I’ve returned to Barcelona beach life this month. 🏖️☀️

How much money would you accept to give up the internet entirely, forever?
I certainly wouldn’t do it for less than 4 million, and probably wouldn’t even accept that!
