14: Prague

It's flourish and dragonsand spirals and points and it's pinks and it's bluesand it's stopping in time It's absolute quiet and too loud to listenIt's completely forlorn but completely bewitching It's an ode to the pastand a nod to the presenta  jumble of beautyan aesthetic confection It's safety and warmthand it's tumult and thrill and it's so much exploredand so much to see still  It's the quiet of dawnand a bustling tremorand it's...

Cusco Welcome Party

    0
Kudos to Travis & Sam for planning a perfect Peru Welcome Party!  We arrived to this amazing mansion overlooking Cusco and of course a llama was chillin’ and waiting to greet us.  (Cuz, llamas are a thing here)  And the path was lit by torches.  Check out the video of our grand entrance:   The mansion had an incredible view... ...a draw bridge... ...impressive rooms with...

RY Darién – Prague Day 14

    0
Dobrý den once again readers. This post is going to be a bit different from my last. I’ve had a lot of different things go through my mind in the last 10 days. I would say that in general for everyone in my Remote Year group that this first month is a period of discovery. We’re learning more about who we are, what our tolerances...

Bolivia-living

    0
Was really interesting. And unexpected. And broken. Bolivia is one of the poorest countries in South America, without a lot of infrastructure or tourists. Before spending last month in La Paz, I didn’t know what to expect, as I had only seen the picture of the city on the Remote Year website. I didn’t do any research for Bolivia and figured that I would learn about...

Adjusting to that Spanish lifestyle

    0
We are coming up to almost 2 full weeks working here in Valencia, Spain and it has been great!  I could not have asked for a better group of smart, hardworking, diverse, and entertaining digital nomads to travel with over the next year.    Not to mention VALENCIA is beautiful!  It is super walkable (more so than DC) and the architecture on every corner is fantastic.  I’ve...

10 Day Reflection!

    0
Our first night club experience in Valencia!! 8 dance floors, 3 levels, not too shabby 😉 Now that we have hit our 10th day in Valencia and with the program, I thought I'd take a moment to reflect on the questions I (and friends back home) have been asking since we boarded the plane to Spain: what's it like to live in Valencia, what's it...

Leaping Head on into FEAR

    0
When I first read about Remote Year I told one person and one person only. That’s kind of a thing with introverts, by the way. Especially Type-A, super planner, perfectionist introverts. Those really cool things in life, the one’s that spark our interest, make our palms sweaty & lead us to fall in love…Yea, we keep those thing super tight-lipped. Especially until we are 100%...

Day 255

    0
The goal was to go to the beach, which we technically did, but we started at brunch, then went to the beach for 10 minutes before it started raining so we went to see an imax movie about America’s national parks (there were tears on all of our faces – that ice ballroom!), then went to grab tapas in the only place open in Valencia...

Cocoa Pebble ’n Frosted Flakes: Welcome to Serbia

    0
Parks, European architecture, cafes, and a motherf***ing fortress bruh. The shift from Asia to Europe has been nothing short of mind-boggling, and to put icing on the cake, my first stop is Belgrade, Serbia. Prior to touching down in the city of trees and stones, I knew nothing about the culture, people, or geography, and therefore could neither form opinion or expectation. I quickly found...

#32 The Crystal Island

    0
Since arriving on Koh Phangan a lot of the RY’ers have been struggling with their thoughts and feelings which has meant that we have started to act weirdly amongst each other. Some people have isolated themselves, some people have started rumours to draw attention to, or away from themselves…. basically things have just gotten really fucking weird…. and uncomfortable. I wondered whether it was the...

WEEKS 8 & 9 RECAP: SANDSTORM

IT’S A COMBO POST, Y’ALL! I’m a week behind on posting and trying to remember all of the things I did before the city of Sofia completely and totally engulfs me (but more on that later). The end of Morocco was amazing, and involved a LOT of time in the car, drinking wine in the desert, sleeping under a blanket of stars, and having my...

Below is the full 30min talk in which I propose the two most high-leverage activities I believe we can perform and the six topics I would love for our group to cover...

Berlin Sidetrip

    0
From Prague we took a weekend train trip to Berlin, Germany. Staying in the heart of Berlin we visited many sites including Tiergarten, the Brandenburg Gate, the Berlin Victory Column, and the Jewish Memorial.  Throughout the city there were various spots with remnants of the Wall and we followed streets marked with cobblestones where the wall used to stand.  A highlight for me was walking...

In 2015, Travis Moore attended the Code for America annual summit, a collection of some of the most talented civic tech leaders in the country, all working to build a government for the digital age.
