The Remote Year Honeymoon Stage

    0
I almost have no words to describe my feelings and thoughts right now. I am having an incredible time in an incredible place with incredible people. It is like study abroad in Scotland times 1,000. It is a social experiment. It is a challenge. It is outside of my comfort zone. And yet, I still have to get groceries and do laundry once in a...

One Week Down, Fifty-One More To Go

    0
It’s about time I started writing something down about this adventure we’re on. This prompt has been open no less than 3 weeks, and I’ve been starting to wonder if I’ve forgotten how to English on a fundamental level. I’m certain I haven’t, the topic is just too big. A ridiculously convenient set of puzzle pieces falling into place. Months of cautious anticipation, a whirlwind...

Week One Lessons from Prague

    0
After spending a week in a foreign country with 74 strangers I feel as though I’ve learned everything I possibly could and I’ve grown as much as any human can and I’m ready to go home now.   Just kidding.   What I have done is learned some very important lessons, which seems like it should be impossible after only one singular week – seven very short days –...

7: Timehop

    0
Everyone has their little morning ritual. For some it's yoga, or meditation. Others check emails or stare blindly at the coffee maker as it brews. I wake up and look at Timehop. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Timehop is an app that digs through all of your social media and resurfaces everything you've ever posted on that day in past years, going back to your...

I’ll Be Up Up and Away ✈

    0
As I sit in the Lima airport, I am reminiscing about the last four months I have spent living in South America. I cannot even begin to comprehend how lucky I have had been to have experienced something as wonderful as Remote Year. Unfortunately, I had to make a really hard decision to leave Remote Year, as my remote job didn’t pull through and I...

As I embark on my trip to Europe today, I can't help reflect on the time I spent and what I've learned traveling around Latin America. Surprisingly not enough Spanish. I put in a good effort at first, but turns out my pantomiming skills are top notch.We are all very different. Traveling with yogi hippy nomads and traveling with corporate digital nomads is a startling...

Spirit of Light

    0
I was in the middle of Mexico, and had just finished getting a massage. I felt light in spirit. I felt happy. Especially considering the fact that after the service, I was presented with the most delicious apple cinnamon tea, followed by walking outside into a piece of paradise. I appreciated it so much, because I knew it was ending soon. I wanted to take...

Cambodia: Past and Present in Phnom Penh

    0
Its 86 degrees in December, and I’m looking out onto the low city streets from my 9th floor luxury apartment building. Across the street, a rooftop bar plays top 40 hits, while groups drink gin and tonics looking out onto the hot orange sky. Not really what I envisioned when I heard Phnom Penh, Cambodia was part of our itinerary this year. In the afternoons,...

Trekking Volcano Fuego

    0
I don’t know why I think these treks will get easier. Climbing the third highest Volcano Acatenango to see Volcano Fuego was a huge challenge. It only took us five-ish hours to get up to top, but we were lugging all of our stuff and our own water! It was also extremely steep. I’m glad I had a few of my friends from the yoga...

So I did it! I dove it, I flew over it, and now I'm fleeing the country before I spend any more money!It was truly breathtaking. The dive was the CRAZIEST thing I've done before in my life (once again). These giant Caribbean reef sharks swarmed around our little dive group as I helplessly sucked all the air left in my scuba tank in pure...

Plastic Waste in Cambodia

    0
Returning to Cambodia after a hiatus of only 5 years I was surprised at how much more developed Phnom Penh had become.  The city was now sprinkled with a number of tall buildings, none of which I can remember from my first visit. But it is easy to see that this is a recent phenomenon given the number  of buildings currently being constructed.  The Phnom...

Being the Only Tourist in India I’m entering my third week of exploring the gorgeous states of Rajasthan and Gujarat in north western India, and I could not be happier with where my journey has taken me thus far both geographically and mentally.
