Mercat Central de Valencia

    0
It's been 10 days here in Valencia, and I'm loving that our lives finally have some semblance of a routine. One of my favorite parts of my new Spanish routine is, wait for it, going grocery shopping (you guys Spanish Minji is so domesticated - I've cooked more here already than the past year in Seattle!) We live about 6 minutes away from the Mercat...

Hello, Cusco!

    0
I’ve been lacking in blog updates lately because of 2 things: 1) traveling; and 2) work!  I took a side trip from La Paz to Buenos Aires for 10 days, but I’m in Peru now!  City #4, Cusco, aka Cuzco.  It's charming, cute and cozy.  I haven’t explored much yet but, this Sunday, I’m embarking on a 4 day hike of the Inca Trail, which...

Thank you man, I really appreciate what you wrote here and there would be absolutely no way I’d be risking that much or even recover if it wasn’t for friends who are like the closest family and the best therapist for me. That includes you — let’s catch up some time soon by the way? It’s been quite a while now!I think in this business you gotta be...

LA PAZ, WE ARE NEVER, EVER, EVER GETTING BACK TOGETHER

    0
I didn't really realize how much I didn't like La Paz until I went to Lima. I flew into an airport right next to the ocean and could instantly breathe again. Add the proximity to the ocean to food being my best, best friend again and me extending my stay there makes perfect sense.But as soon as I got back to La Paz, I was...

Always make time for things that make you happy to be alive

Hi there! I can’t believe it’s been 8 days since the last post. I’m obviously failing at the 1 post a week that I thought I would be able to do. Let’s recap. I’m one of 70something digital nomads (remotes) traveling the world with a program called Remote Year (RY). Our group is named Magellan as in the Portuguese explorer. We are currently in Valencia,...

Far From Buenos Aires’ Tourist Traps, Street Artists Are Giving a Voice to the Voiceless

    0
The late-day sun illuminated the street around us as we stepped out of the car in Isla Maciel, a predominantly poor neighborhood on the outskirts of Buenos Aires. As we ascended a nearby set of stairs leading to the entrance of an elementary school and made our way through the lobby, a mural in the corner jumped out at me. It depicted a skeleton with...

Celebrity Game Night We Remotes can be goofy sometimes. We kicked off this week with a round of Celebrity game...

Paradise Island: Is this real life?

Sawadika! No, that does not mean swastika, but hello in Thai. I’ve been severely lacking with the blog posts this month but it’s pretty tough to motivate myself to be on the computer any more than I have to be for work when I’m confronted with views like this at any given moment. I know, I know, you don’t feel bad for me, I get...

A Nomadic Life

TL;DR I decided to buy a new domain in case I get accepted to the Remote Year program. And since most english words are taken, I decided to use latin. The site name VagaVita, or VagaVitae, means Nomadic Life.

Month 2: Buenos Aires, Argentina

    0
Let’s start with “No, I’m not dead. Please stop asking.” Turns out Buenos Aires (BA) is a super badass city with an un-doable amount of stuff to do, but I’m trying to get it all in. Highlights Fuerza Bruta – this insane interactive live show with water, confetti, a running man, gunshots, and ceiling acrobats. I’m going back again this weekend if that says anything....

Imbalance

“What a disgraceful lapse! Nothing added to my disquisition, & life allowed to waste like a tap left running. Eleven days weeks unrecorded.” – Virginia Woolf I’m standing on a board that is just a little wider than my own shoulders. “Just relax. Focus.”, I keep telling myself, acutely aware of how easy this looked earlier, but isn’t. I notice I’m still wearing my watch, so a...

It never really seemed feasible and I never wanted it to be at the expense of career growth - I didn’t want to take a gap year where I just bummed around for a year doing odd jobs. After Uni I started...
