Kaizen

First Impressions | Mexico City

    0
Starting to get all warm and fuzzy…Month 12 began in typical Kaizen fashion: taking over an airport lounge in Bogotá while wearing the most obnoxious outfits we own and playing thunderstruck at an almost assuredly inappropriate volume. We basically took over this poor lounge like we owned the place. No, seriously. At one point I stopped to look around and observe what was going on and...

Sticking up for The Bogesnot bogotáhttps://medium.com/media/59a9ae5f6956723188ace4de1598f4cd/hrefThe PeopleKaizen was all over the place this month. We had people exploring Colombia, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Brazil, and even Antarctica. For those of us in Bogotá, we went to our first fútbol match, celebrated the Superbowl, threw surprise parties, danced to Me Rehusó on on a chiva bus, had mariachis delivered to our apartments at 11 pm, and got kai-razy...

Opting in to Month 11Bold statement: Kaizen has the best itinerary in Remote Year.**Ask any Kaizen and they’ll probably agree.It’s perfectly well-rounded with some of Remote Year’s fan favorites like Prague, Lisbon, Chiang Mai, Medellín, and Mexico City; has four months in Asia; and was the first to travel back to Japan since the very first group.The only semblance of a gripe that anyone in our group could come...

Empanadas and new perspectiveshttps://medium.com/media/437c92e194bc7fbacf10da3f75d9f43a/hrefThis month I was reminded of my seemingly always positive city reviews a couple of times by some fellow Kaizens.You may have noticed that in just about all of my BTMU posts, I generally have mostly good things to say about every city on our itinerary.This one’s no different.If it feels like every month I say that our apartments or workspace or City...

Travel Hell Vol 3 – Hostage in Bolivia

    0
The day started in earlier than usual at 3:15am after arriving in Uyuni the previous night. There were vague excuses given about possible road closures. Once on the road our driver tells us there are protests about living conditions in the city and they are setting up roadblocks to disrupt. He explains that we’ll take a back road and should be fine. We traverse some...

Week 22

    0
Ahhh! So one of the things I wanted to prove to myself this year was that I can travel alone. I’ve never done it- this week, Krabi, was my first solo trip ever. Which tbh was equal parts exciting and terrifying. It’s awesome to not have to accommodate another person’s desires, but it does also remove that safety net (which unfortunately is a legitimate consideration...
