I've been contracting for 5+ years with the last 2 years as a nomad. It sucks if you've committed to full-time-ish hours on a project or If you're actually employed full time. In these cases, I don't really do anything different despite city changes - get up, coffee/breakfast/emails in a cafe, work for the day in a co-working setting, dinner, maybe a drink, bed. Anything except this would result in a loss of productivity.

However, when I only have small contracts, I love combining the novelty of a new location with the freedom of working on side projects or researching something new. It's most definitely a desired creativity catalyst.
