Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

    0
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

    0
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

    0
If there’s one rule that I will always live by: It’s that you should do the things that scare you. So on July 25th, I’ll be leaving my lovely life here in Vancouver, spending a week at home with my family and then moving to Portugal August 1st to spend my 29th year travelling with the Remote Year. Over the next twelve months I’ll be...

My First Date with Belgrade, Serbia

    0
I didn’t really know what to expect. For some reason, I got the impression that you’d be drier and colder than you actually are. Maybe it was your voice.You had my respect from the moment we met. I can tell that you’re tough and you know some shit. Sometimes I think my life has been too easy and I get the sense that I can...

Long Term Travel and Mental Health

I am not good at having feelings. I’m especially not good at hiding them; I have cried in pretty much every embarrassing moment there is to cry. If my brain was set up like the brain in the movie Inside Out, my emotions would be so confused all the time. Sadness is probably always crying in the corner over some memory or some potentially sad...

New Month, New Continent

I’m currently sitting on the floor of the Fort Lauderdale airport and I’ve officially been here for eight hours, so I hope my state of delirium and the alcohol don’t affect this post. I’ll start at the end of my month – my visit home. The first visit home I’ve made in the last eight months, and the first time I’ve dipped my toes back...

Remote Year: Photos of the Month, Prague, Czech Republic

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my Disclosure statement. While many of the groups travelling the world with Remote Year are chasing summer, our #RYCurie group is doing just the opposite—we are chasing winter! That is going to be very welcome once we hit Asia but I must say that December in Prague was, well, cold. And dreary. As a food & travel photographer,...

A Silent Day in Bali: Nyepi Holy Day

This month, I’ve been living in Bali, an island in Indonesia that is all sorts of popular with the “digital nomad community”, yogis, and semi-adventurous travelers. But who’s here, why, and what it means is a whole other post entirely.Yesterday was Nyepi, a local Hindu holiday that is celebrated in a way truly unlike anything else I’ve ever heard of or experienced.As we made plans...

THE HIDDEN BUENOS AIRES

    0
Tucked within the bustling streets of Buenos Aires, a city outwardly known worldwide for its European-esque architecture, its steak, and the tango, lies a hidden network of cultural experiences - restaurants, bars, stores, galleries, and more, available only to those in the know. The elusive & prohibition-like speakeasy concept might be tired in other cities around the world, but here in Buenos Aires, history, economy,...

FOMO as a Long Term Traveller

    0
I’m starting month four on this crazy little thing called Remote Year. And I think I’m at a point where my FOMO (fear of missing out) has slowed down considerably. Almost to the point where it doesn’t exist anymore. Is that a crazy thing to say? I mean, yeah, I still want to make as many memories with my friends as I can, but maybe...
