Bolivia Week One: Let’s Get Weird

    0
We were at the airport getting ready to leave Buenos Aires when a friend of mine had an epiphany. “Fuck! We’re moving to Bolivia!” she exclaimed. “Remote Year just got real.” Spot on. Argentina was a good country to transition into this year because its cities, especially Buenos Aires, were so similar to the one I left. Moving from BA to La Paz would be...

Remote Profile: Mitch Mraz

    0
MITCH MRAZASSOCIATE, AFTON PARTNERSUSA WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO COME ON REMOTE YEAR? I think it’s because I’m more comfortable being outside of my comfort zone, if that makes sense. The idea just sounded so much more enticing than settling down, buying a place, and continuing to live for the weekends, which is what a lot of my friends were doing. I wanted to grow personally...

What I ate for a week: La Paz, Bolivia edition

New series! This isn't meant to be a health diary as much as it is a peek into what's available in the countries where I live and how my eating habits change in each country. Let me know if you like it or if it's boring.I've written before about how I gave up health when I joined RY. I miss health food terribly - local greens...

The Spectacular Southwest…of Bolivia!

    0
One of the few facts I knew about Bolivia before visiting, besides the fact that it sits at an insanely high altitude, is that it is home to the largest salt flats in the world, Salar de Uyuni, which are about 4,000 square miles. A visit to the salt flats was one of the few side trips I knew I had to take this year...

The hardest way, on purpose.

    0
I love my job.I'm not saying that the way that many do, claiming they love a career because they've devoted time and energy into it and need to convince themselves it's worth it.I legitimately love what I do, why I do it, and who I do it with.I'm also a driven personality. My fatal flaw in work is that I am prone to burnout because...

Cholitas Wrestling!

    0
The slogan: Cholitas Wrestling: “Only in La Paz do you get to see the local ladies dishing out more punishment than your local bouncers on a Saturday night!”  I can’t even explain how happy this event made me.  It was pure joy.  Best $15 USD I‘ve ever spent.  (Sorry, Patrick. We WILL go back!) The ladies are fierce!  The pageantry was pure beauty.  And, I love how...

On monotony

Seven of us opted to fly to Cusco.Remote Year organized a 14-hour bus ride from La Paz for us. 14 hours? On a bus? How much are flights again?So we ate the extra $160 cost, took a one-hour flight, and spent the day exploring while everyone else was fighting the urge to stretch their legs.Worth it. 10/10 would spend extra to fly again.I noticed something...

Patagonia? More like AmazingPictureOpportunityAgonia

It's either cause there's too much going on, cause the pictures are too awesome or cause I'm lazy....this post will be all pictures from Patagonia. Sure, I could tell you about arriving in Patagonia and having the cab driver blasting Celine Dion in the car, but you didn't come here for that. I could reminisce about the dance party we had at the top of...

Setting up OpenVPN on CentOS 7 using DigitalOcean

Introduction Why Bother? As should be abundantly clear from my prior writings I am about to leave on a trip for a year. During that time I’ll likely be making use of numerous public Wi-Fi access points, not to mention whatever dodgy cellular providers are available in each location I travel to. As part of my overall stance on privacy, its essential I take steps...

Finding Balance Amidst Opportunity

    0
I’m an all or nothing kind of girl. All work, no play. All play, no *charged* blackberry. All health, no balance. All heart, no limits. All guarded, no trust. For years this personality trait has made me both wildly “successful” and 100% stressed. In fact, for much of my life I have constantly felt like an odd anomaly. Anomaly (n): a deviation from the common rule, type,...

Pressing Pause

I know I sound like a scratched record, but Remote Year time just seems to run faster than the normal variety. Admittedly, it’s been a short month but I’m still surprised to find myself back in an airport already, saying goodbye not only to Cambodia but also to the continent – as our 3 month Asian adventure is at an end.  So with quarter of...

I woke up in a screensaver

Writing this from the way back seat of a minibus in Krabi, Thailand that is hopefully taking me to my new home for the next few days. I say hopefully because I literally just booked this two days ago and could have gotten a private driver to take me to the island of Koh Lanta but then I saw $5.03 in my bank account and...

T-36: But Now What?

I first realized I was bored out of my mind when I noticed I hadn’t Instagrammed anything in a few weeks.Yeah, I know, that’s the most cliché Millennial bullshit thing I could have said right there. At least I’m being honest.My feed was this predictable series of selfies taken in the same window of my apartment, shots of New York taken from my (old) office...

Waking Up In Bali

    0
Bali has always been a dream of mine ever since I got hooked on Wanderlust Yoga Retreats.  I pictured sun salutations on a beautiful white sand beach, Acai Bowls and fit amazing looking people with positive vibes. Although all of those things are available in magnitudes, they are a bit harder to find.  Many of […]

Sahara camel trek …so hot right now!

Goal accomplished And why not?  It is one of those true bucket list adventures and something I have always wanted to do.   Little did we know that the logistics of planning a trek like that during Morocco’s hottest month can be daunting. The Sahara desert starts all...

So I just got back from a Remote Year Info Night and seeing all the confused prospective applicants has made me realize how far I've come.I was like the weird 5th year senior hanging out in class with the 'too cool for school' look on my face because I've heard all this before. Looking around the room, I realized just 3 months ago I was...
