Before I travelled around the world with Remote Year, when I thought of Vietnamese food I conjured up Canadian-ized-versions of it. Tasty, yes, and a favourite choice for a frugal meal out.

Goodbye Rodeo

    0
My dog Rodeo passed away this week. He arrived into my life at 10 weeks old, 12 years ago. Though he came to grow over 100 lbs – he had a gentle, sweet disposition. Well-mannered, never barking and always excited to go somewhere new, Rodeo was my role model and consummate teammate as I transitioned from my twenties to my thirties. Rodeo taught me a...

Morocco-This Country Will Blue You Away!

    0
Morocco has been on my bucket list for many years and I have always been somewhat intimidated. It was very outside of my comfort zone and I am thankful that I waited until I had a lot of travel experience. It is a very intense place but the beauty of the country outweighs any of […]

My dad never had a son.But that didn’t keep him from sharing his love of basketball.As a kid, he’d quiz me on the names of some of the players past and present from his favorite team—the Lakers.He’d say their first name, I’d respond enthusiastically with their last.It was our own little comedy routine.“AC” he’d say.“Green!” I’d respond.“Magic…?” he’d question.“Johnson!” I’d scream, beaming from ear to...

    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...
