2019: Year in Review

    0
Howdy all, It's been a long time since I've posted an update to my blog. As you might have gathered from that I've been busy and kind of forgot about writing for awhile. I originally had a huge post planned to kick things off again with all sorts of ideas, but instead I'm just going to write something that's a bit word salad in the...

Remote Year: One Month Reflection

    1
It’s weird to think that I’ve been traveling for almost 2 months now, and almost all of that has been international. It’s even weirder to think that I’ve been living in Lisbon for five weeks and it completely feels like home. So much so that the idea of moving to Croatia tomorrow fills me with anxiety, and leaves me a little bit sad. Leave Lisbon?...

Remote Year Month #8 in Review: Lisbon

    1
I can’t believe I have now wrapped up my time in Europe. Lisbon was an incredible city to end the experience in, full of culture, captivating beach waves and incredible port close by. I also flew to London and Belfast on two separate occasions; the weekly travel reminded me of consulting travel projects. Below is my month in review of Lisbon. Took a little longer...

Friendship breakups are weird and hard

    1
Friendship break ups are a mysterious thing. Unlike regular breakups, where we have rituals, romcoms, cliches, basically a script to follow, friendship breakups are a much murkier proposition.How do you tell a friend that your lives no longer align? That you no longer find the relationship mutually beneficial? You don't dislike the person, you just aren't inclined to spend time or energy to continue to...

The Coast

    1
While almost every place I see on my travels holds value, the coasts and beaches have really continued to be my favourites.  The west coast of Chile was no different.  Concon was the highlight of the day with its smaller but increasingly modern vibes and largely untouched coast.   A place I could see myself returning to visit for a longer stay.   Concon Vina Del...

100 Days of RY Aurora: Number 100 – just data with a soul

    1
I’m spending a year traveling the world with Remote Year Aurora: a group of fifty-something strangers that came together last New Year’s Eve to form a nomad community. Last month we passed our one hundredth day on this experience, and in the spirit of “doing something different” with this podcast, over a span of two weeks I spoke with twenty-seven people from the cohort in...
