New Year, New You?

    0
2019 is upon us, a time to reflect on 2018 and set resolutions for the new year. I’ve seen it countless times in the past few days – new year, new you! But why should there be a new me? I don’t want this year to be about changing who I am, but rather embracing it. 2018 was tough, full of rough patches, self reflection,...

Oh, What a Night!

First thing Friday morning, I was off to John & Colin’s place to kick off the next round of birthday celebrations. After a quick stop for doughnuts, John helped me decorate the apartment with all my swag from Flying Tiger. Lucky for me, Colin is a night owl and had no idea what we were up to! Once we were satisfied with our work, we...

Now officially settled into Prague, it was time to hit the ground running in what was quickly becoming my new favorite city. Boy, was it a busy week! I kicked off Sunday eating a tasty brunch with Erica & John at Kavarna Zanzibar. I could eat that beet root, avocado & egg toast forever! After some fun and lively conversation, we split up to explore....

Reflections on the Adriatic

 Credit: Sharan ChawlaOf all the places to start this crazy adventure, Split couldn’t have been better. I’d been in major cities for the past twelve years, and was used to their demanding, full-speed-ahead nature. Split provided a welcome change with the relaxed state of fjaka that forced me to take a step back. In NYC, fjaka is unheard of. We’re constantly on the go, never...

Saturday, May 26, 2018  8:30 AM: The doors to WiP were open and waiting for us each to wheel our luggage in, officially vacating our first Remote Year homes. Deb, Erica and I wrapped up our packing, and started hauling our lives downstairs. We brought down our offerings for the next group (can’t let the alcohol and olive oil go to waste!) and said goodbye...

Sweet Dreams are Made of Cheese

Tuesday afternoon found me back in Split just in time to host a PI fundraiser – The Grilled Cheese Invitational!  Because sweet dreams are made of cheese… (thanks to John for the awesome tag line!) The cook-off consisted of 6 contestants who each had 20 minutes to deliver their best creation made solely of 5 ingredients of their choosing.  No meat allowed – that would...

The Move

It was official.  I was no longer a resident of New York!  After locking up the trailer with the last of my belongings, we crossed the bridge and sped off to my Dad’s childhood home in Hershey, PA.  With my last Hershey visit being about 26 years ago, the chocolate cravings quickly began at the corner of Chocolate and Cocoa Ave.  But my favorite street...

The Longest Goodbyes

Going forward is something simple. What is left behind is what is hard. — Dave Mustaine How do you write about the goodbye’s when moving away, while remaining true to the emotion felt throughout?  How do you capture the excitement, sadness, fear, and happiness but most of all, love? While saying goodbye is never easy, it highlights the love and friendship surrounding you in life. ...

And We Have Lift Off!

“Who doesn’t know what I’m talking about Who’s never left home, who’s never struck out To find a dream and a life of their own A place in the clouds, a foundation of stone Many precede and many will follow A young girl’s dreams no longer hollow It takes the shape of a place out west But what it holds for her, she hasn’t yet...

Welcome to Split!

Now for the piece you’ve all been waiting for…the start of the action from Split, Croatia!  I may be two weeks into Prague already, but better late than never. After sleeping through (according to me) or surviving (according to Ahi) the flight from Munich to Split, we were welcomed at the airport by members of our Remote Year team.  While we were received with lots...
