Enjoying the grape views of Cape Town

    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. My entire group is one building so it's like adult Spring Break, which is awesome. We're actually in a student dorm for an international...

Hiking still sucks but Cape Town is rad

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...

It's not like I'm going to the middle of the Sahara or the snowy wastes of Siberia. There...

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,...

Just before I left for Remote Year I posted everything I packed in a single suitcase and a backpack for an entire year of travel.Well, it's 3 months later so I thought it might be helpful to go over it again and evaluate what I actually needed to bring and what I didn't. Scroll to the bottom of this post to see my must-have items...

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...

Valencia totally kicks ass! Here's what I've been up to the past two weeks:Marina Beach ClubSo, I have no pictures of this to supplement my story, and soon you'll understand why.There's this incredible open-air space called the Marina Beach Club. It has a gigantic sound stage, lots of open cabanas for lounging, super bougie bars, and a really Miami, party-scene vibe.I wanted to go so...

Penguins, sharks, and beer pong, oh my

Boy, oh boy.Week 3 was even more of a blur than the last two weeks combined. It's when most of our events planned for us and self-planned event collided. I was on the go 24/7 and I'm pretty sure I wasn't sober for more than 24 collective hours. (Sorry, mom.)SundayWe took a gorgeous scenic drive through Chapman's Peak and stopped to take in the incredible...
