Gone Livin’ – Ctd.

    0
Welcome to another edition of Backwards Blogging. We’re on to week 2 in Belgrade, and I’m starting to write about week 2 in Prague. I would come up with some cheap excuse, but it’s actually been an incredibly rough couple of work weeks, so I’m not feeling too bad. The hope that a more intense day-to-day experience would somehow force me to find more hours in every day has...

From left, Tom, Carolyn, Kristin, Me, Jacek, Abby and Anhton I’m in Europe now, and South America is in my rearview mirror. (Epic montage video in the making...)  But, I never got a chance to blog about the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, which lives up to the hype in so many ways.   We chose the 4 day trek with Valencia Travel, which I...

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...

Week 21 – Brexit

Sunday, June 19 – Dover and Canterbury  I’ve been trying to stay pretty local this month as there’s so much to do in London I would hate to suck up my time through weekend trips. However, I’ve heard that the towns outside of London are just as fantastic as the city, so Dianne and I took a day trip to Dover and Canterbury. waitin on...

Ahoj Prague, Cao Belgrade!

    0
My last week in Prague was bittersweet. I have so many exciting adventures ahead of me, but it was sad to say goodbye to our first home and this beautiful city. Sunday: I took the train with 10 of my friends to Pilsen, home of (you guessed it) Pilsner! The brewery was HUGE and we got to explore the underground tunnel system where they brewed the...

Goodbye Vancouver, I Miss You Already

Over the next twelve months I’ll be...

Good mooorrrnninnngggg Vietnam to our final month on Remote Year! I can and can’t believe that it’s our last month, but it is weird to think back to this time last year when I was running around trying to prep for the year ahead. I’m leaving RY two weeks early to head back to the states for a work conference and then staying put. I...

Belgrade, Serbia..my first 15 daysGrowing up, I was always taught to not judge a book by its cover. I have to admit that I have done a good job of this throughout my life, that was until I got to Belgrade, Serbia. We arrived to Belgrade pretty late at night, after a day of driving on a bus. I was hot, tired, and it was dark....

When I got the email from Remote Year saying that I had officially been accepted into the program, first thing I did was look at the itinerary to see what cities I  would be living in for the next year (once approved by my company, of course). I had heard of the four South American cities, had been to two of European cities, and was excited about...

Former Hollywood slave turned software selling globe-trotter. It's a big career change and not one I ever expected. Here I'll detail how I did it, and give some tips on how to find a job you'll love. Unfortunately for millennials, we were raised being told we could do anything we wanted. Our parents worked hard to give us that privilege. However, that’s not really true. Well...

Do you ever have those moments in life, where no matter how many times the story is told or how many different ways you hear it, it just never get’s old? I have a lot of those stories lately – so much so that I often wonder if and when I’ll lose those memories for the sake of another more hilarious or memorable one – but I am positive with...
