Finding Balance & Being Whole

    0
Hello again! As we near the end of our second month in Remote Year, I thought I'd write down some thoughts I've had on finding balance and achieving wholeness in our lives.  These thoughts arise out of personal experience - after my return to Croatia, I found myself a bit off keel.  For one, I was extremely tired, and craving relaxation and familiarity (mostly in...

You guyyyyyssssss

One of the remotes always (Jo) says ‘you guyyyysss’ and I find it to be hilarious! It’s been too long since I last updated you guys. It’s already the last week in Lisbon, Portugal. I’ve had such a great time here and I honestly can’t wait to come back. I just had my first visitors in Lisbon, perhaps that’s why I’ve loved it even more...

Side Trip to Croatia + Ultra Europe

    0
Apologies for the quietness of our blog over the past 3 weeks!!!  I (Dylan) just returned from a 2 week trip to Barcelona & Croatia (my first 'vacation' on this program) and am finally getting caught up on things.  Since I don't have much to say yet about Lisbon (I've only spent 3 days here since the program landed on July 2nd), I thought I'd...

Love Doesn’t Win

    0
​“The greatest act of love is letting go.” – Tiny Buddha It’s human nature to aspire for greater control over our lives, surroundings, and relationships. Many of us fear change and uncertainty, so much so that we go to extreme lengths to find and defend our comfort zones. Consider the feelings of inadequacy dispensed and endured in abusive relationships, the manipulation and disloyalty that pervades...

Perusing Portugal 

    0
It’s been a while since I updated blog so here is an update of the last 2 weeks.Quick synopsis: Portugal is a beautiful City! It is a combination of San Francisco (think trams, hills, and golden gate bridge twins) and Miami (coastal weather and beachy feel). The old town is beautiful and preserved as Portugal was the only main country not bombed or damaged in...

Where does the time go? Seriously!

By now, you know that I’m part of Remote Year Magellan. I can’t believe that I’m in Lisbon, Portugal already! Yikes! After Ibiza, the rest of June flew by way too quickly. We said goodbye to Valencia on Saturday, July 2nd. I thought it was fitting that it was exactly a year since I got out of the army. We traveled by bus from Valencia...

Weekend road trip itinerary through Andalusia

    0
Last weekend, instead of making the 13 hour bus ride with the rest of the group, five of us ventured off on our own, rented a car, and drove through the Andalusia region on our way from Valencia to Lisbon. I've always wanted to see Granada and Seville, so this was the perfect opportunity to do so! We picked up our car in Valencia and...

General Valencia Activities

It's crazy to think that we are almost one month into our trip and 4 DAYS from leaving Valencia!!  So much has happened so quickly that in some ways it feels like we just got here, and in other ways it feels like it has been way longer than 4 weeks.  As we start to wrap our time here, we thought we'd share some of...

Valencian Adventures

So I have already been away from the UK for a month, living a remote lifestyle in Valencia.  I am writing this while on the bus, travelling across Spain on our way to start month 2 in Lisbon.  I cannot get over that we are already a month in but at the same time I look back and realise I’ve done so much already. Valencia...
