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

    0
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...

The Prague Blague… see what I did there?

I wanted to skip writing a post about Prague. My feelings about the city are complex, and potentially controversial (I didn't love it... eeeek), and part of me wanted to just put it behind me as I start living the Serbia life.But writing these posts about each month really has helped me process my experiences, and hopefully has given you (yes, you, all 4 of...

Why I Didn’t Love Prague

    0
Maybe it is because the city is hotter than hell, maybe because there is no A/C, maybe because we came from Lisbon, maybe it is because miss my family or maybe it is because I do not like working from 2pm-11pm…but Prague is just not my favorite destination. I know. I sound like an over-travelled brat. I was punching myself the whole time thinking….people LOVE...

Determining what to pack for long term travel is really challenging. You have to be prepared for every activity and every weather scenario.I first heard about a capsule wardrobe when I was studying up on what to pack for Remote Year. At the time I thought it was a crazy excuse to not go shopping, which is not something I wanted to be a part...

Things I Miss About The USA

    0
I've been traveling around Latin America and Europe for the past eight months, and absolutely loving it most of the time. So far I've been exposed to SO many new experiences, ideas, people, languages, foods and more. While that has all been invigorating and exciting, sometimes I find myself missing certain things that only the good ole US of A can provide:#muricaWheat Thins: Yes this...
