STEPHANIE WALDENCONTENT STRATEGiST, MASHABLEUSA WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO COME ON REMOTE YEAR? I've always wanted to travel but I never felt that my lifestyle -- complete with work, financial responsibilities, and family obligations, etc. -- was conducive to it. This program allows me to travel with a steady paycheck in a community of like-minded professionals, and gives me peace of mind when it comes to...

My favorite places from Córdoba

    0
This post is probably more for me than it is for you. One of my favorite things about traveling is seeing all of the different restaurant, bar and cafe designs around town. These are some of my favorites that I don't want to forget. Most of these are not my photos.El PapagayoOne of the fanciest meals I've had in my life, and it just so...

Week 6: Back in Buenos Aires

    0
Back in 2008, I had the opportunity to spend two months in Buenos Aires with a program called Road2Argentina. I lived with a host family, interned at a local business for a few weeks, and explored the city. I also had the great fortune to catch the tail end of some friends’ time studying abroad, and got to know the city through more experienced eyes,...

The True Cost of Voting Absentee

    0
As a lifelong American, I wholeheartedly believe that it is our civic duty to vote in as many elections as possible. As a member of Remote Year, I will be voting absentee for the first time in the 2016 Presidential election. At home, I am a registered voter with Travis County in Austin, Texas and have not missed a major election in a decade. I knew that this year...

CHARLES DUENTREPRENEUR, CLOSE-UP MAGICIAN, EX-ROCKET SCIENTISTUSA WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO COME ON REMOTE YEAR? Growth. I've always grown the most when I travel. I get unplugged from media influences. I experience new adventures. I gather new ideas and perspectives. However, traveling also includes a lot of hassles. I don’t like to plan things, coordinate transportation, book lodging. Remote Year takes care of all of that. I get...

BAck In The Big City: I Like You, Buenos Aires

    0
Is it even possible to type FUERZA BRUTA in lowercase letters? Has anyone ever done that? Forty-eight hours after the epic performance, I’m still trying to find words to describe its noise, lights, movement and sensory overload. There were aerial dancers and drums and a giant moving pool and swimmers and SO much dancing and I loved every second. The show was a fitting end...

CALIFORNIA’S HIGHWAY ONE

    0
Growing up on the California coast, there are certain things we take for granted: The fact that the ocean is always immediate, that the landscape in and around home is dramatic and beautiful, and that the weather is mostly pleasant. Not until I went to college in St. Louis did I truly understand and appreciate the singularity and wonderfulness of the California coast.Having moved back to...

Tango: The Art of Walking on Air

    0
The more I watch people of all ages and skill levels dance tango here in Argentina, the more I imagine it looking like gliding across the floor, floating and suspended just so in the air - effortless and graceful. Again and again, it comes down to non-verbal communication through body language: lead and follow, reacting and adjusting in real-time to the smallest movements that indicate where...

Will it Stick: December!

    0
After the existential crisis that was the Beyonce Instagram challenge of last month, I decided December needed to be a bit more physical. And you could argue that I cheated a little because I started prepping for one of these challenges in September, but I think when you read on you'll understand that it really made no difference in the outcome.Cambodia Challenge: Half-Marathon at Angkor...

Mendoza Wine Guide: 3 Days, 3 Nights

    0
Most of us dream of places like Mendoza: beautiful mountains, peaceful countryside and handsome winemakers (maybe that’s just me?).  But let’s not forget about the wine itself, especially Mendoza’s most notable, the Malbec. I spent last weekend in Mendoza (rough, I know), an area I’ve wanted to explore for some time.  I’ve been to many... The post Mendoza Wine Guide: 3 Days, 3 Nights appeared...

Creating a website and new beliefs!

    0
A main feature of this blog is something I'll call "Morning Meanderings." Essentially, I'm setting the timer for 15 minutes in the morning, and whatever comes out in those 15 minutes gets posted. Each of these posts will start with my favorite morning prompt - "I celebrate, I clear, I desire" and then four things I feel grateful for.I celebrate… starting my website.I clear… my...

Boracay

    0
Everyone knows I love a good beach, and when you’re in a country with one of the best in the world it just seems like the right thing to do – so we headed to Boracay! Getting to Boracay is no easy feat, and it took us a grab (philippine uber), a plane, a tricycle, a boat, an electric bike and a golf cart to...

Belgrade highlights

    0
The land of cheap rakia, relentless chain smoking indoors, and dance floors so full of tables there's no room to actually dance. The most fascinating part of our stay was learning about the recent - and in some cases still persistent - conflict that the region has encountered. Seeing buildings bombed by NATO and hearing stories about how children would sit on rooftops to watch...

COLONIA DEL SACRAMENTO

    0
Just across the wide mouth of the Rio de la Plata from Buenos Aires lies the picturesque town of Colonia del Sacramento. Founded in the late 1600s by the Portuguese, Colonia was a highly contested city due to its strategic location on the coast and was tossed back and forth between Portuguese and Spanish powers until ultimately falling into the hands of the Spanish. Today,...

Slipping

I’m staring at my computer, listless, trying to remember what it is, exactly, that I’m supposed to be doing.I’ve been sitting in this chair for a month, letting the reality of my status as an office-worker slowly drown me, swallow me alive. I’ve felt, day by day, my soul desperately gasping for air, and I’ve quieted it. Covered it’s mouth. Let it succumb to lack of...

Cambodia’s Unbearable Suffering Under The Khmer Rouge

    0
This will be very hard to watch, but I do think that everybody needs to see this. Maybe you’re in a similar place that I was in, prior to arriving in Cambodia. I knew that the country had a horrible recent history with genocide and lots of suffering, but I was far from knowing specifics. So, for all of you who want to understand what...
