I've been in Sofia, Bulgaria for 10 days now. Admittedly, I haven't done much yet to explore the city outside of the area I live in so I recognize this is probably skewing my perception. I have a couple upcoming camping and hiking trips and a day planned to visit a village I'm hoping will change my outlook.The goodSofia is filled with some pretty incredible...

    0
I've been in Cape Town now for 13 days. I wasn't really sure what to expect from South Africa, but I've been completely blown away by how livable, friendly, and exciting this town is. Firstly, my accommodations this month are pretty sweet.

I landed in Cape Town, South Africa 4 days ago and it feels like 2 weeks already.Everything has been such a blur. Lots of new places and faces to learn. Surprisingly enough, I wasn't too terribly jetlagged when I touched down at 1pm CPT time despite 30 hours of travel -- 2 flights and a 12-hour layover. My view from the plane! I was definitely...

Preparing for Remote Year: what I did, when, and how much it cost

    0
Despite how absolutely massive the Nation is by now, there are seemingly few posts about being a Premote as a Premote... everything is in retrospect. Which is makes sense, I suppose, because hindsight is a checked bag under 20kg.Ba-dum tsss.At any rate, my departure day is in 4 weeks. I thought it might be useful to recreate the timeline of events: stuff I bought, sold,...

Everything I own fits in a suitcase and why the hell did I have so much stuff

    0
I'm moving out of my SF apartment in 2 days and my relationship with "stuff" has become very strange. For the past two weeks, I've had to take a hard look at everything I own and ask myself, "do I really need this?" It's incredible how often the answer is no.Where does all this garbage come from? Why do I keep mountains of useless trinkets, doodads, and...
