72: Mirrors

Shout out to Eddie, whose Belgrade Vlog provided the .3 seconds of footage from which I screenshotted this image.  August is the first month I’ve had a full length mirror in my apartment since I left the US. At home, after carefully selecting the day’s clothes and fixing my hair and makeup, I would undertake the daily sacrificial ceremony of my reflection. The offerings? My...

Dear Mom from Belgrade

Dear Mom,Since we've last talked I can't begin to tell you about the amazing outpouring of support I've received from all my friends and family - near and far, old and new.

Fado – Music of the Soul

How to put into words, what I just felt in my heart? Last night we went to an old palace to listen to Fado, music of the soul. The palace had long since been converted into a small chapel and we sat between it’s walls, listening to it cry. Hundreds of years ago, in 1755, this particular palace survived an earthquake.The earthquake had taken all...

Week 16 Recap: Hvar you kidding me?

    0
 A tease. That's what you are, Hvar. It was Saturday at 8 AM and I awoke to a slight headache, thanks to our idea of drinking and singing on Friday night at the workspace. When I woke up, it was a BEAUTIFUL day. I had to get outside, so I went for a (hungover) bike ride along the coast. And then suddenly the rest of...

Traveling Has Made Me Totally Stop Wearing A Bra

    0
“What is this, No Bra 2017?” James asks me every morning when I get dressed, sans bra. “WOO HOO!!!! NO BRA 2017!!!!!” I reply like I’m a 19-year-old on spring break and he’s hosting a wet T-shirt contest at Señor Frogs (#tbt). Much to my boyfriend’s apparent chagrin, “No Bra 2017” is very, very much a thing. My “Remote Year” has also become the year I’ve given up on...

London CallingCity #3I am now on Day 79 of Remote Year, in City number 3, which is London. The travel day from Belgrade to London was very simple, it was an easy nonstop flight. It was tough to say goodbye to Belgrade. Belgrade was a city I feel I did not get to know as well as I would have liked. Part of that is...

View of East/Central London from the Thames: Tower Bridge, The Shard, London Bridge.Warning: This. Is. Long. This weekend, I finally made it to London.

The other day, I asked one of those people how he felt about Belgrade. “It’s no Prague,” he said.True that.I’m grateful. It’s not that I didn’t like Prague, but its maybe its opulence was a bit much for me. If it’s...

This Is Why I Remote Year: Patagonia Edition

On our first night in Patagonia, we walked from our hostel down to Argentino Lake, just in time to witness a stunning 9pm sunset. I was traveling with two fellow remotes, and we took a collective deep breath. It was Friday night, and the glaciers and mountains awaited us. Amy, usually the quietest of the three of us, announced "This is why I signed up...
