    0
I did spend a lot of time working on my new business and heads down in the workspace, but I did get out my last few weeks in Lisbon. Here's what I got up to:Mixology Class A bunch of us joined an unofficial mixology master class at a local bar called 4 Caravelas. A Remote Year favorite, the owners Marcus and Tania are absolute gems...

Lackluster Lisbon wasn’t as sparkly as I thought

Now, before anyone trips over themselves to tell me how great Lisbon is and I'm crazy for not agreeing, allow me to explain.I don't disagree Lisbon is beautiful. I don't disagree there's a lot of rich history. I don't disagree Lisbon has a special place in Portuguese culture.Maybe it was just a bad month for me. Maybe the juxtaposition from Cape Town was too stark....

Remote Year: Lisbon Accommodations & Workspace

    0
Accommodations Pros Very residential (which I liked) Apartment had historic charm, but was updated Living with three other people meant a big living room for hosting There was an apartment of 5 above us so we had a good group for dinners and hanging out. There was always someone who was down to walk together somewhere or go somewhere together. My room had a couch...

The Best (and Worst) Hike to the Top of Table Mountain

    0
I may have found the best and worst route to the top of Table Mountain. It’s long, it’s beautiful, it’ll make your friends want to hate you for dragging them all over mountains. Was it worth it? Yes? Length: 4 hours, if you’re straight hustling (which we were) Distance: 5.8 miles Height: 3,200 feet Difficulty: Easy to Advanced (FYI, Easy in Cape Town means your...

Cape Town Cairns: Coffee Shops & Breakfast Spots

Cairns: The word “Cairns” is a hiking reference to stacks of stones on trails that help guide your way. When I see them on a hike, I instantly think, Phew. I’m not lost. Traveling the world can be overwhelming. You’re in a foreign place, far from home. My hope is that cairns can be used to guide your way, so that when you visit one...

Jams: It’s Lekker Bru!

    0
Lekker Playlist This playlist was compiled during my time in Cape Town. It’s reflective of people I met (who shared their music with me), things I learned, and stuff I found to listen to while working (or casually dancing). It’s definitely a hodgepodge, but lots good vibes. Lekker, bru! (Sweet, duuuude!). Enjoy!

Stone’s Miles: Touching Base, But Excited for What’s Ahead

    0
Touching base since I know it’s been awhile. I’ve been settling into Lisbon and had to get an article out for work that I love (link). [Insert a million other excuses here.] I’ve been doing and learning and processing so much over the past month that it has been hard to get it all down. To even know where to begin. I can tell you...

Remote Year: Cape Town Accommodations & Workspace

    0
Pre-Remote Year, I remember wondering what the accommodations and workspaces would be like a lot. Several friends and family have also been asking me, since they’re curious about how the program is going, so I figure I’ll try to show what the apartments and co-working spots are like throughout the year. I wasn’t thinking about doing posts like this until now, so unfortunately I don’t have...
