Thoughts on a Year of Travel

    0
I can't sit still when there's space up in the road. That is a lyric from a song by Wild Rivers. I deeply resonate with this song and listen to it often.  The obvious problem with this is that there is always space. You can only see so far in advance, and you work towards the distant horizon, but then more space appears. There is...

After realizing I'd be spending the first two months of Remote Year in Argentina, I knew it was finally time to fulfill my dream of visiting Patagonia. So I called upon 3 of my closest friends to pack their bags and meet me in the Southern Hemisphere. Our tickets were purchased before we even had a plan in place.Over the next few weeks, we devised...

Attention Please!

I was recently hired by Parse.ly - an analytics startup for publishers and content producers. And as a newcomer to the company and industry, I began noticing a strong emphasis placed on the word "attention". Some examples:The headline of our latest product, Currents, is "What's Holding the Attention of Millions of People?". The headline on our website reads "Audience attention is precious. We help you...

Adventures in Colombian Medical Tourism

    0
Having spent two months and two thousand dollars on pills, drills, razors, and lasers, I left Colombia feeling like a new man. Health insurance be damned.It all began on a sunny day in April as I was strolling down the streets of Medellín, chewing gum, and admiring the city's lush foliage. That's when I felt a piece of gravel embedded in my gum, except to...

This Post is Totally Mediocre

    0
I swear to you it is. There's honestly nothing special about it. It won't change your life, give you some new insight, and chances are it'll barely even amuse you. Go ahead, hit the back button, exited this browser tab, see if I care. I wouldn't blame you if you did. It's so mediocre that I won't even post it to Facebook or bother trying...

September on Splavs

Serbia is hands down the most random country on my travel itinerary this year. My boss told me he would rather go to prison than go to Serbia (LOL). I heard similar sentiments from most people about the country.The conversations would go something like this:Friend 1: "So where are you living next month?"Me: "Belgrade... it's in Serbia."Friend 1: *confused look* "Is Serbia the same as...

Podcasts for long haul travel days!

Once a month, on a given Saturday morning, Remotes around the world load into vans with their shrinking set of possessions to transition. Transition day is the day that we move to a new city. It consists of pick-up, bag check, a quick lounge espresso, 1-2 flights, drop off at the new apartment, a nap and then dinner. Sounds like a lot, right? As someone...

Easy, Breezy, Belgrade

Hello, World! I have been up and down and all around this month. From Serbia to Montenegro to Croatia to Denmark to The Netherlands and back. I am so happy to be kicking it back in Belgrade for the next week. I am getting some work done, drinking coffee and watching the fall weather roll in. Fall is happening fast. I have seen the leaves...

Prague + A Part of WWII History That I Never Knew

   Prague...I Love You!I've never meant those words as much as I have this month. This city. This architecture. This history...I vibed so hard with this place. Is it touristy? Yes. Are the people periodically less than friendly? Yes. But damn, I just loved it. And there was so much to love! I legitimately can't wait to tell you about it!The Best Public Transit EVER....

Sticking Up for Salt Lake City

    0
Ahh Salt Lake City. The HQ of Mormonism and land of endless salt flats. My Dad often has to work in this area and Salt Lake City (SLC) is a drivable distance from the small town where my Mom grew up. Because of this, the Kent family has spent a lot of time in Utah over the last few years. Even so, when my family...
