Remember how I told all of you that I was leaving for a year to join a program called Remote Year and travel around the world with a group of 50 people…well, I lied, I’ve just been in my apartment in Los Angeles this entire time downloading photos from other people’s sites and posting them on my own Facebook.

Rome, Italy. 2017. Every morning, when I wake up, I am reminded that I am magic. I am powerful, over my thoughts, my words and my reality. I’d like to think that my sense of freedom has elevated in the last few weeks. I am soaring to new heights, and this feeling is extremely liberating. I’m not questioning the wind. It’s guiding me, and I...

Playing Golf in Split

    0
Found a little 6 hole golf course just outside of Split for a few rounds. Golf is not a popular sport in Croatia, there are only three golf courses in total.  The course we found – Golf Klub Split 1700 – is only 6 holes, but it just means you hit the clubhouse on the turn more often! And yes, that’s a donkey on the...

Image courtesy of @bschwalmDespite having connected with many of my fellow travellers on Slack, that first night was the first time I’ve met any of them in person. And there was an ease about it. We talked about our packing woes, our remote work strategies, and the countless times we have recited the list of countries to our families and friends. But there is something...

Adjustment overload ????

I have always held myself to high personal standards – in basically everything I do. Maybe I’m determined, obsessive, or a little bit of both. In any case, when multiple weeks passed here in Split and I still wasn’t feeling settled, I began to feel frustrated with myself. “You love to travel and test yourself,” “You knew this program was perfect for you, so why...
