20 Things You Should Know Before Moving to Dubai

    0
Moving to the Middle East from anywhere in the world is an eye-opening experience that’s guaranteed to blow your mind, test your patience and forever change the way that you operate in the world.  Dubai is a city of contradictions. Where there are beautiful hotels there are underpaid, underprivileged migrant workers who built them. Where there are man made islands, oceans used to flourish. It...

About

    0
About Me I am many things, but perhaps most of all I am a life-long learner. I aspire to become a renaissance man, although I see the journey ahead as being long (and a whole lot of fun). My interests are fairly broad, and I tend to pick up new hobbies and interests often, delve deeply into them, and then file them away to make...

    0
Remote Year is a program that brings 75 Digital Nomads together to travel the world for a year. To prep, I had to figure out what to pack. Reducing all your material possessions to a few bags is not easy. I ended up with 3 bags containing approximately 75 items. Total value: $6,988. Here’s everything that I packed: Here’s a breakdown of the monetary value of all...

Perfection on the Peninsula

    0
All weekend I felt like we were on an island. That’s how isolated and remote Cabo Polonio felt from the rest of Uruguay. From the rest of the world, really. Even on Google Maps, Cabo Polonio just looks like a massive blob of green along the coast. We arrived on Friday afternoon following a four-hour bus ride from Montevideo. The bus dropped us off at the...

My 1 Word for #RY3? Adventure.

    0
Only a short 12 hours after finishing up one of the biggest passion projects I’ve ever worked on, PHX Startup Week, I boarded a plane for Córdoba, Argentina to join the third cohort of Remote Year. The timing of everything couldn’t have worked out better, a tell-tale sign this was what I was meant to do. 48 hours after boarding my first of four flights,...

Month 1: Córdoba, Argentina

    0
This is where it begins. I don't know when it will set in, but I know it hasn't yet. After roughly 30 hours of travel, I finally landed in Córdoba at about 12:30am on the 29th. Our Remote Year leaders were there to greet us and had organized a few vans to drop us off at our new homes. By about 3:00am I was finally...

We arrived yesterday morning in Cordoba, Argentina, via Mexico City and Santiago, Chile. In the other America. This is the farthest south in the world I have ever been.Suffice to say, our first day was perfect. Remote Year made everything very easy. And last night was a whirlwind meeting of new friends, for me at least. It's no surprise that I didn't network much at...

A Weekend Off the Grid

    0
Today is a weird day. No, it’s not just that it’s Leap Year. As many of you know, but for those who don’t – my mom was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2011. She had brain surgery, radiation and chemo all back to back and after a smooth recovery she has thankfully been fine since. However, a few days before I arrived to Uruguay her MRI...

Coding By Train: Leg 2 (Washington, DC to Chicago)

    0
After a snack in Union Station, I  boarded the train for Chicago. There was an option to make reservations for dinner in the dining car. Seating was limited and community seating is used, providing an opportunity for you to meet new people. I opted to skip dinner in lieu of hanging out in the observation section with few beers (shocker!). This time the only decent...

If you have any questions about other aspects of the climb, please feel free to reach out via the contact section. While most of the Kilimanjaro climb was challenging, the climb was definitely manageable for those of adequate fitness. In contrast, the summit...

After the cold of Prague I was definitely ready for the sunshine and colours of Lisbon – and it did not disappoint!   The first week was also a week of many personal firsts including a surf lesson at Carcavelos Beach and a European soccer game. We quickly found Time Out Market – a great place for food of any kind at any hour.   Over the...

10 THINGS TO DO IN & AROUND BOGOTA

    0
A sprawling metropolis of 613 square miles, Bogota is a modern city dotted with reminders of its colonial past. Flanked by mountains and plenty of distinct natural features, Bogota offers as much in the way of day trips outside the city as it does urban activities. Forget the outdated notions that Bogota is a crime ridden city and hop on a plane to the Colombian...

Worth the Climb

    0
During my time in Bogota, Colombia I embarked on two gorgeous hikes in the Andes mountains. The views were breathtaking, and I was often lulled into a long, peaceful trance as the green hills cascaded in front of me for miles and miles. The air was clean and crisp, and the physical challenge of it all was strenuous, yet rejuvenating. Hike number one was through the town...

Learning to Relinquish Expectations

    0
Expectations; or what I like to call seeds of unhappiness, I believe are the root cause of an overwhelming amount of dissatisfaction within our society. These seeds can be found in friendships, relationships, work or even just small day-to-day experiences. By surrounding ourselves with expectations, we remove the opportunity to be completely and totally happy with the present moment and what we’ve been given. A...
