The Way I Pack…

    0
...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’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...

My Month In Medellín

    0
All my ignorant self knew about Medellín prior to signing up for Remote Year was that in seasons 2/3 of Entourage, Vince goes there to shoot a controversial movie. I vaguely knew it had something to do with something in Colombia. While we were in Lima last month, I binge-watched season 1 of Narcos to attempt to learn some Medellín things, so basically I knew...

Con gusto, Medellín.

    0
I’m two days away from leaving Medellin and, as usual, I can’t believe how quickly the time has passed. Our next stop is Bogota, Colombia so we won’t be leaving the country yet, but I’m not sure if I’m ready to leave Medellin. This has been my favorite city so far this year and I would definitely be happy to stay a little longer. The...

Concentrated Human Experience.

You know what’s been one of my favorite parts of Remote Year? I feel like this experience is helping me to figure out what I want in my life.Not necessarily because of some cliche notion of finding myself. I don't believe that that's what something like Remote Year is for. They even tell you not to go on Remote Year to find yourself, though that...

Doing It In a Van

Sometimes a day goes by with so many surprises, twists and turns that it seems to last longer than a day should. Let me tell you of one of those days that I recently had the pleasure of enjoying in Medellín, Colombia. But first, do me a favor, close your eyes for a second [...]

The Greatest Gift I’ve Ever Received

    0
The wheels on the bus went round and round, inching me ever closer to the emotional cesspool that I called middle school. Each bump in the road made my CD player skip, a serious grievance when the likes of Eminem and D12 were spitting straight fire on the 8 Mile Movie Soundtrack. I was 12 years old, and boy were daddy issues all the rage...

Lunch in Medellín Colombia, With a Side of Nevada Basque History Please

    0
Medellín is an interesting city... at least the bit that I know about it which mostly includes that nearly every local I've talked to said not to get too far out of Poblado (especially at night) and that a couple decades ago it was a war torn city seemingly run by Pablo Escobar. I'm [...]

My top 9 meals of 2018

    0
Three months in five countries that included about 200 meals eaten in restaurants, cafes, street carts, etc. so far this year. That’s probably more than most people dine out in a year! Since everyone always asks what my favorite dish was, here are the top nine. Why nine? Because each of these provided not only great food, but great memories, realizations, insight into cultures and...
