How Instagram is Threatening Environmentalism

    0
When I decided to visit Lagos a few weeks ago, the first thing I did was search the city in my Instagram toolbar. Why? Because gone are the days of travel brochures and Rick Steves guides. People just want to know what is beautiful about where they are going. Or they might even choose to go somewhere simply because they have seen so many beautiful...

Beginner Yoga Series – How to Use Non-Traditional Yoga Props at Home

    0
As someone who practices a ton of yoga on the go or at home, I have found a deep appreciation for using random things for yoga props. For example, I have used a coffee table to hold my balance in a low lunge pose. I have squeeze a water bottle between my thighs to keep my legs activated in chair pose. More commonly, I make...

I live in Bulgaria now and yes, it’s as weird as it sounds

    0
I've been in Sofia, Bulgaria for 10 days now. Admittedly, I haven't done much yet to explore the city outside of the area I live in so I recognize this is probably skewing my perception. I have a couple upcoming camping and hiking trips and a day planned to visit a village I'm hoping will change my outlook.The goodSofia is filled with some pretty incredible...

Enjoying the grape views of Cape Town

    0
I've been in Cape Town now for 13 days. I wasn't really sure what to expect from South Africa, but I've been completely blown away by how livable, friendly, and exciting this town is. Firstly, my accommodations this month are pretty sweet. My entire group is one building so it's like adult Spring Break, which is awesome. We're actually in a student dorm for an international...

Hiking still sucks but Cape Town is rad

    0
I landed in Cape Town, South Africa 4 days ago and it feels like 2 weeks already.Everything has been such a blur. Lots of new places and faces to learn. Surprisingly enough, I wasn't too terribly jetlagged when I touched down at 1pm CPT time despite 30 hours of travel -- 2 flights and a 12-hour layover. My view from the plane! I was definitely...

Preparing for Remote Year: what I did, when, and how much it cost

    0
Despite how absolutely massive the Nation is by now, there are seemingly few posts about being a Premote as a Premote... everything is in retrospect. Which is makes sense, I suppose, because hindsight is a checked bag under 20kg.Ba-dum tsss.At any rate, my departure day is in 4 weeks. I thought it might be useful to recreate the timeline of events: stuff I bought, sold,...

Jeepin’ Down Portugal’s Atlantic Coast

    1
Nestled at the foothills of Portugal's Sintra Mountains, the town of Sintra is known for its pine-covered hills, lush beaches, and beautiful pastel palaces. If you're looking to see it from a more local perspective, take the road less traveled to explore some of the hidden gems on Portugal's Atlantic Coast. And I can't think of a better way to do so than in open-air Jeeps...

Week 16: Ninh Binh-ing Around

The following week was full of adventuring around Hanoi and the usual: getting work done. While I usually do work at my apartment or the workspace, I decided I would try something new and headed with Em to Vui Studios, a trendy café right across from our usual Xofa hangout. The inside was beautiful, cement walls and floors with muted artwork had the perfect setting...

Aloha

Boulder, CO Sunset over Shannahan RidgeThis time of year is always a little hard for me.  I love the Colorado fall weather, but watching the sun dip behind the mountains a little earlier each day makes me sad.  I love the long days of summer.  Knowing that I’ll have plenty of daylight after I finish work, and the opportunity to play outside late into the...

I love using Slack, and my favorite part about it is the integrations it offers, allowing me to (partially) use other tools functionality within Slack. I find it interesting though, that the “next” platform is messaging. One of my co-workers made an astute observation: after all this time of human evolution, we have reverted to using symbols, pictures, and short sentences for our communication. It...

Paris, France

I met my sister, Tracy, and her family in Paris while they were vacationing for four days of wandering and site-seeing. It was my first time to Paris and it was great exploring with her because she studied in Paris for a year in college, knows the city and speaks very good French which took the stress out of ordering croissants. I was surprised to...
