Track Events?You see, when you’re living somewhere for a month, there are so many different factors that go...

“So, like, what was your favorite country?”I thought I was sooo clever when I had the idea to do First Impressions of Austin during my first couple of days back in the office.“Aha!

The stream of people turned into a torrent as more and more headed to their next destinations, some headed home, some...

Pinch me. My Remote Year has ended, how did that happen? The last thing I remember is meeting my 50 “Tramily” all the way back in Split - “Travel family”, Uggh, one of a few new terms I visibly gagged at when first hearing but have since come to accept.
