The Weirdest Things I Pack

    0
The number one question I get asked is "How do you pack for a year?" The short answer is capsule wardrobe. BOLO for a post on this soon. Beyond clothing, I do make the effort to tote some unexpected, yet completely irreplaceable, items around the world. If you are looking for some gifts for your avid traveler, or about to embark yourself and wondering what...

Mexico City: Tacos & Tequila, My Friends!

    0
   This was another one of those months where I had perhaps some of my highest highs and lowest lows!& just so I can get these out of the way, these are my lows and dislikes...There are definitely aspects of Mexico City and the culture that I don't like. Firstly, I don't think I could ever live anywhere that I can't drink the tap water...

¡Viva México!

    0
The land of tacos and tequila! Mexico City (aka Cuidad de México aka CDMX) wore a lot of hats for us this past month: it was our halfway point, our last month in Latin America, our supposedly "most livable city" on our itinerary (I'm going to disagree on this one), our closest stop to the United States (leading to many of the Americans making quick...

The best dining experience is a mix of good food, good people and serendipity

    0
I’ve been fortunate enough to enjoy so many amazing meals that I sometimes feel like I’ve tried it all and it’s near impossible to find something new and interesting. Not to brag, but this has been my life as long as I can remember and it’s what I know best. And after so many [...]

Screw Bogota, Gimme All the Cartagena

    0
   Okay - before anyone from Bogota gets defensive, I have many many reasons why my time in Bogota was not my fave part of my Remote Year experience so far. It was cold and wet, and that includes being cold inside of buildings, the altitude definitely affected me, particularly in my sleep and my immune system, I just didn't feel safe, and I really...

Bogotà: I Survived The Cold

    0
Bogotà as seen from the top of MontserrateBogotà does not get the best reviews from Remote Year participants, and is not generally seen as much of a tourist destination in Colombia relative to Medellín and Cartagena, which have grown in popularity in recent years. The not-awesome rap exists for a variety of reasons: it's not a super safe city (it's allegedly the city where the...

    0
I’m spending a year traveling the world with Remote Year Aurora: a group of fifty-something strangers that came together last New Year’s Eve to form a nomad community. Last month we passed our one hundredth day on this experience, and in the spirit of “doing something different” with this podcast, over a span of two weeks I spoke with twenty-seven people from the cohort in...

Pescado Frito on the Coasts of Central America | Panama and Colombia

    0
Fried Fish. A Simple but Rewarding Dish A whole fried fish may be the best representation of the sea I can think of. Simple, rustic, interesting and tasty. It fits into any cuisine and nearly any city with a coastline has a restaurant serving it I believe. And in Cartagena, Colombia it is [...]
