This is the wikipedia page that has info on the...

TOMORROW

    0
I’m heading out tomorrow (WHAT?!), and I wanted to dedicate this post to those who matter to me: Friends, family, coworkers who threw me going away parties, wrote me letters, gave me gifts, bought me travel sized-everything, helped me pack, listened to my worries, texted me with words of encouragement and quotes to ease my fears, or just gave me a hug goodbye. Your sweet gestures mean so much, and it’s...

New Portrait Collection Added

    0
My favorite photos to take are of people. Ideally I can photograph someone doing something that reflects their personality. Anytime I feel like I’ve captured an aspect of someone’s style, humor, intelligence, beauty, pride, introspection, or emotion I feel really proud. I think these photographs are so much more interesting than a traditional, “pretty” photo that people generally prefer of themselves because they represent not how that...

When the Honeymoon Ends…

    0
At this point in Remote Year, I’ve stopped counting how many days have passed since we started this journey. And I try to avoid looking at my countdown app for the end of our program. Because I don’t want to focus on that timeline. Days pass, and I know the end will be here before we know it. But we are already SO confronted with...

For more background on today’s post, read this introduction to the series. While I was living in Prague, an article came out about the religious state of the Czech Republic. Basically, it has one of the highest rates of lack of religious affiliation in the world – about 60%.

The Revival

    0
We entered a lush garden that quickly eased our uncertainty and opened our eyes to the trip we were about to embark on. It was time for a rebirth. Our spiritual guide, Rosalinda, was a peaceful, gentle woman, who led us to a small room to share details about the ancient Mayan Temazcal experience. We were all first-timers to this detoxing sweat lodge ceremony which happened inside...

MY BEST DAY OF REMOTE YEAR

Bangkok is my one true love. Yes, the whole country of Thailand is amazing, but I really love that city. My family planned a 3 week long trip to SE Asia (POST COMING SOON, I PROMISE MOM), and I headed to the BKK solo a few days early for a reunion that was better than Before Sunset. If you follow me on Instagram, that’s the...

The one in which Lindsay discovers she's Italian.It was the second week in Córdoba, Argentina and a young, naive Remote strolled into the social area of our co-working space to behold a group of Remotes booking Beyonce tickets. I believe my exact response to them encouraging me to see her in concert in Milan was, "Alright, fuck it, I'm in."And what an incredible decision that...

Back on the Cleanse

(photo: me in 24 hours, cred: Unsplash.com) Coming back from a year around the world does a lot to a person. I’ve seen amazing places, eaten everything (noticeably, but worth it), met incredible people, and went on a million dates (I really should do an official tally of them). Some good, some horrible, some meh, some LOL and some that lasted 72 hours. A true...
