A nomadbase is a communal living space, whose main purpose is to give long-term travellers the opportunity to have a place they can call home for free and without long-term obligations, where they come to (and leave) whenever and as often as they want. It is a place where they are not guests, but flatmates, no matter how long they stay. As a side effect of this, it furthermore accomplishes to connect long-term travellers amongst each others and creates a space where it is also easy for less-travelled people to meet and connect with each other. Nomadbase.org is a growing network of nomads and bases all over the world.

Serbian Travel House
The Travel House is a project we carried each summer by the serbian Travel Club, starting with 2012. Using the money they gather from donations, they rent a flat somewhere in the world, where they establish a temporary base for getting acquainted with the region. Staying in the house is free for everyone. The goal of the Travel House project is to provide a global meeting point for travelers, and thus be a small step towards building a global travel culture.
