I’m Leaving My Heart in Argentina

    0
I can't believe it's almost been almost two months on the road with Remote Year, and two full months in Argentina, and, fun fact: the longest time I've spent outside of my home country. And as of right now, I'm never going back.I'm in love with this lifestyle, I'm in love with these people, I'm in love with this culture, the list goes on. Argentina...

The Way I Pack…

...is a metaphor for how I feel about leaving a city.Buenos Aires, Argentina: Hot Mess.I was a total wreck mentally, emotionally, and physically. I had waited as long as I possibly could (the morning of travel day) and played the weight game all the way up until my luggage was packed away in the van, shifting small things around from my suitcase to carry on...

I've never thought of myself as someone who would blog. Leave the writing to journalists and post on Facebook or Twitter to get your thoughts out...or just keep a journal... or just... talk to people?But I couldn't put in words how much I have relied on the blogs, vlogs and stories of Remote Year participants and other long-term travelers while preparing for this experience I'm...

Marrakech Broke Me

It was bound to happen eventually. After 10+ months of international travel, despite the many *insert all of the positive adjectives* experiences I've had, the challenges that come along with the one-suitcase country-hopping lifestyle caught up with me.I started to feel the mental fraying at the end of October, in Croatia. Activities and sights that I normally would have gotten excited about (murder mystery party!...
