It's a Monday morning, the sun is beating down relentlessly and, somehow, your coffee's heat is less comfort than it is routine as you slug back the scalding liquid.

Your PC is running what was intended to be a quick ten-minute update for the twentieth time and all you can do is wait and watch the time flit by. So, what else is there to do than to live vicariously through the lives of our favourite Insta digital nomads?

Like a second limb, your phone is out and you're scrolling through scenic and vibrant snapshots of landscapes, buildings, food and experiences that lie just beyond the fabric of your office walls and you start bookmarking ideas for your own next great escape.
