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...

3 Bags, 1 Year, 75 Items – How I Packed for Remote Year

    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...

Casablanca, Morocco

    0
After Croatia, Germany, the United States, Ecuador and Colombia I was getting a little uncomfortable being so comfortable. Comfort (and europe) is a dangerous thing — before long I risk being content being content. But really I prefer to be a little uncomfortable especially within the context of travel. So it was time to get a little dirty in Morocco and remind myself what it’s like...

Why

    0
Ben wrote a beautiful post on finding our why in Remote Year. Ben's words always inspire introspection, observation, and a shift in perspective for me. Of course I'm going to read and ponder his latest words, "When the Going Gets Tough."From his blog:Since mental and emotional preparedness is a very personal thing, I have often wondered have the people participating in Remote Year prepared themselves...

Ready or Not..

On June 5th I joined Remote Year knowing I had about six months until departure. Six months to pack. Six months to get my life together. Six months to mentally prepare for the greatest adventure of my life. Fast forward to today, departure day and I’m sitting in an airport lounge wondering what I spent the last six months doing because I certainly don’t feel...

Who goes on a trip around the world? Remote Year 3: Team Cousteau

    0
One of the first questions I am often asked when talking about Remote Year is "what kind of jobs do these people have that lets them to travel for a year?" As expected, many are from creative fields such as design, writing, and development, but honestly, we're a very diverse group from all walks of life. Not only do we have wildly different careers, but...

Day 353

    0
I started my day with a meditation session with the head priest of a Buddhist temple (this is what I’m saying, in three weeks my day will be starting with hoping my Orange Line train isn’t on fire) who, incidentally, will be giving a talk at MIT in February, and ended my day with someone drawing a vampire on my grapefruit in blue sharpie.

Packing for Remote Year: Part One

    0
I recently read a Vogue article hyping Lagom as the new Hygge. The article posited that Lagom, the Swedish concept of having just enough, will overtake the trendy idea of Hygge, Danish coziness, as this year's lifestyle obsession. Lagom has been on the mind as I begin to plan for Remote Year. Fights are booked, apartment is taken care of, furniture is pawned off on...

6.0 | Kuala Lumpur: Real and Raw

    0
More often than not, we travel for white sandy beaches, turquoise clear water, roman and gothic architecture, a charming small town, a big romantic city, a up-and-coming hub. Kuala Lumpur, quite frankly, was none of that.It didn’t have the glamour or instant allure of European cities. It lacked polish of American cities. It didn’t come in a pretty bow with its Instagram worthy spots. Instead, it...

My BBC Interview on Life as a Digital Nomad

While I was in Glasgow, Scotland, a few weeks ago, I met a woman who ended up being a producer for the BBC Scotland. I’d been talking about my travels and working remotely, and she asked if I’d be interested in doing an interview. Um, yeah!Because I was hitting the road the day after we discussed it, we decided to do it after my sightseeing drive...

Buenos Aires Street Art

We landed in city #3: La Paz, Bolivia!  But, I’ve still got more to say about my beloved Buenos Aires!   I saw 5 art museums, each with their own style.  But, some of the best art in Buenos Aires is on the streets.  Just like New York City, or Venice, Cali, street art is part of the cityscape.  It is encouraged and celebrated.  And, I...
