My First Date with Belgrade, Serbia

I didn’t really know what to expect. For some reason, I got the impression that you’d be drier and colder than you actually are. Maybe it was your voice.You had my respect from the moment we met. I can tell that you’re tough and you know some shit. Sometimes I think my life has been too easy and I get the sense that I can...

Week 16: Sacred Valley, The Inca Trail & Machu Picchu

    0
This was a week I had been equally looking forward to and fearing since booking this trip back in January: four days and 26 miles at over 3,800 meters on the Inca Trail, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, and my first hiking/camping experience with my boyfriend. Sean arrived on Saturday to get acclimated to the altitude, and was thankfully feeling fine...

Lennon walls and Czech Rap Concerts!

    0
It was a hot humid day, I was excited to make the trek to the Lennon Wall. Since 1988 the wall, located in the heart of Prague, represents a symbol of global ideas such as love and peace. Students in protest of communism would write their grievances on the wall. The movement of self-expression started then continues today.Reaching the wall the colors, the art and excitement...

Public Speaking Workshop: Cusco

    0
Last Wednesday, I hosted a sold-out speaking workshop in Cusco for my fellow Remotes.  My hotel had a sweet space called the ‘Sun Room’ which felt perfectly Zen for practicing public speaking.   In honor of my friend and mentor: Cole GP who passed suddenly, the theme for the evening centered around Improv.  We had an interactive discussion on the difference between acting vs public...

Alright, I know it’s been a long time since I’ve last updated, but between activities, visitors, and traveling, it’s been hard to find time. Good news is, a full life = an interesting post. Week 15 was my first full week in Cusco, and my first time seeing the city in light. Cusco is so cute, and so touristy. Walking through the main square, Plaza de...

Not Greek yogurt. Just yogurt. I also like yogurt.Ok, the landlord said to leave the apartment and go right and then left. Hmm. Doesn’t look like this is a bustling...

I spent the weekend taking care of myself: a long massage, got a blow out (aka hair styled), mani pedi, solo brunches with my book (read Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert), slept in late on Sunday, did some watercolors.And yet, on Sunday at 7:54 pm, I found myself crying on in my kitchen after an Instagram argument with a stranger.I texted my best friend: “If...

I’ve contemplated quitting Remote Year almost every day for the first 6 months #SpoilerAlert #IWillSurvive

They tell you this journey will be full of ups and downs – that is an understatement. I get that I’m not your average bear, but I think that my fellow remotes can attest that this “lifestyle” is an emotional roller coaster. As you can see, the first 2 weeks were a huge high – the honeymoon phase. Night shift was tough, but somewhat novel...

Courage

Brene Brown saved my life. It sounds dramatic, but it's entirely accurate. My introduction to her writing was her book The Gifts of Imperfection (GoI) in fall 2013. It taught me thatVulnerability is everything.Trust is a leap of faith. And Perfectionism is basically walking around in full-body armor (think of a medieval knight). The weight of it draining us of energy and the barrier that it...
