On the Road Again!

    0
I’ve been back in the US for ~2 months now.  The transition from international man of mystery to domestic couch surfer has been less than inspiring.  Being back in Boston was great!  But, LA has felt twilight zone-ish.   For 13 months I didn't have a car.  It was refreshing living in walkable cities, and using public transpo.  Los Angeles is not really one of those...

Santa Marta, Colombia

    0
Bogotá has been a blessing but also a quagmire of comfort — I’ve done a poor job of exploring the rest of Colombia as I have been happy (too happy?) living a normal life in the capital city; that’s a lazy way to live in a country so geographically diverse and beautiful as Colombia. So while Bogotá is my favorite city in the world (Seoul...

To everyone who has been lovingly harassing me about my radio silence over the past month I would just like to let you know I am alive and well  I know I have been lagging on my blogging/instagramming/snapchatting efforts and I apologize for that.  I have never really been focused on social media and the like because I find I have to take myself out...

My Happy Ending

    0
Six months ago I put a down payment on an experience to travel Southeast Asia with 65 people whom I have never met before all while continuing to work.  Now I know this sounds like a dream come true (it is) but it doesn’t go without a lot of nerves. Working in sales and knowing […]

Curing Hangovers and Heartache: Goodbye Thailand, Hello India Solo Travel

    0
It’s hard to believe it’s already June! Having now been on the road for four and half months, time is starting to blend and merge together like Dalí’s ‘Persistence of Memory’ painting. My last few days in Thailand were spent gathering with my fellow Remote Years, celebrating my birthday and saying goodbye to a few of my very closest friends on the trip who were leaving...

To The Remotes I Love

    0
What a ride, eh? We started this journey about a year ago. We knew that a year would go by fast, but who knew we could cram so much into it? I look at our Instagrams and pictures we’re tagged in together on Facebook, and I can’t help but be amazed. We have done so much. And there is no way that I could have...

The people, places, and things that made the magical city of Prague feel like homeThe theme of Month 2’s pre-recap reflection is routine.I have historically been so helplessly owned by my routines that even the slightest deviation from them can send me into a tailspin for a couple days, maybe even a week.My work week routine for the last 6 months I was in Austin consisted of: waking...

Elephants For many people, riding on an elephant in Thailand is at the top of their bucket list.  Who wouldn’t be enamored by these majestic creatures.  I too had plans to visit the elephants in Thailand but after doing research I found that many of the places are unethical and torture these beautiful animals.  In […]

First Impressions | Austin

“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! They thought they were done with me spamming their timelines with my blog posts! They’ll rue the day they bet against Ole Michael! Wait, I mean Ole Miguel. Damn it… who am I...

On uncertainty, doubt, and losing a client.

    0
Originally posted in 2013, I figured this would be relevant to those of you freelancing or dealing with clients and contracts. Edited (a bit!) and updated for here + now. In past decades, our parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents worked hard and innovated. They took chances and met people, tried and failed, and some tried again, and some didn’t, and some succeeded in order to...

Cape Town Cairns: Cocktails Bars and Dancing Spots

    0
Cairns: The word “Cairns” is a hiking reference to stacks of stones on trails that help guide your way. When I see them on a hike, I instantly think, Phew. I’m not lost. Traveling the world can be overwhelming. You’re in a foreign place, far from home. My hope is that cairns can be used to guide your way, so that when you visit one...

Packing, address changes, notifying credit cards, saying goodbye.I need to be out of my apartment next week because I'm subletting it for 2017. Packing always takes longer than one thinks so I know I will be rushed last minute. I keep buying more weather-tite bins from the Container Store, four...

Additionally, we do not always have the forearm strength to support the weight of the body in postures like plank pose. Today, we are going to walk through different ways to relieve pain in the...

Lisbon is rich in history, beauty, and good vibes. The sun shines 290 days of the year, and the temperature rarely drops below 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The topography allows for a range of climates which define the traditions, and ways of life. The relationship with the sea is clearly seen through the abundance of sardines, cod, and other delicious seafood. It was a wonderful month...

A Little Sweet, A Whole Lotta Salty

    0
This weekend we adventured to Salar de Uyuni – the famous salt flats in Southwestern Bolivia. The Salt Flats expand over 4,000 square feet, roughly the size of Connecticut! It’s the legacy of a prehistoric lake that went dry, leaving behind a desertlike landscape of bright-white salt, rock formations and cacti-studded islands. We opted for the three day tour to make sure we were able to see...
