Nonsense Town

Not all days are good, not all days are bad, but some days can definitely fuck right off. Nearing the end of my first month on Remote Year in Split, Croatia has been a literal cocktail of emotions.  The root of my anxiety upon beginning this journey came from all of the unfamiliar and unknown variables.  Once I physically discovered those, adjusted, and made them...

Zipline“I ziplined before I went into work today ” — uncommon to hear in real life, but not unusual while on Remote Year.Thursday morning, a group of us made a trip to Omis to soak in some breathtaking views before we began our work day. There we went on a 3 hour zipline adventure flying back and forth between mountains and across the Cetina River. While ziplining may...

In and out of Split

    0
This past month has been filled to the brim with activities and side trips! I’ve done something or gone somewhere every weekend and I still feel like there's so much of Croatia I didn't see. I think this will be a recurring theme that I will have to work on accepting this year. I felt like I knew Hong Kong and Buenos Aires pretty well after...

Croatia: Tour D’Horizon

    0
To be honest, I've done very little research about the countries on my itinerary this upcoming year. Part of it had to do with minimizing expectations for the next year, but the other part was largely because there wasn't time to do any research with prepping/packing. I knew that my time in Croatia would be filled with some sun, gorgeous coastlines, delicious fresh food, and...

A Month In and I am Leaning…

    0
I am surrounded with inspiring and complex new people, delicious food, and rich history. I will have been to 6 countries (Germany, Croatia, Bosnia, Italy, Czech Republic, and Amsterdam) in a span of 6 weeks. I have laughed myself to tears, discovered new aspects of myself that I didn’t know existed, shared vegan food with supportive omnivores, climbed with awe the massive set of stairs...

Traveled down the road and back again…

The process of making new friends can be extremely easy for some and burdensome for others.  Thankfully I have fooled enough people in the past to understand how to influence people and subtly force them into becoming my friends…for life.  My first week on Remote Year and in Split I created my mission and chose to accept it – make friends. I set my sights...

43 Hours and 15 minutes in Paris

At 11:55am on September 29th, I stepped foot for the first time in European soil. I took the initiative to start off my year long journey in Paris, France. Originally, I planned to take on Paris solo, but after sharing my plans with some fellow "remotes" (I had not met yet), we gathered a group of 6 of us to meet up before our arrival...

Note to (future) self

    0
Split, Croatia A few weeks back at our Remote Year Orientation the program leaders had us write a postcard to our future self.  I really like that idea, but didn’t have time or space to give it the consideration it warranted.  I quickly tried to come up with some insightful words of wisdom, then tried to squeeze them onto a small postcard, and the net...

Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

The last day of our side trip we spent in Sarajevo with a day of rain and history. We were fortunate to have as our guide through the country a Bosnian who fought as a soldier in the Siege of Sarajevo when he was 17, during the Bosnian War.  The Siege of Sarajevo was the siege of the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the longest...
