Work hard, play hard. Learning to live life to the fullest in Córdoba

    0
It's 2:30am on a Wednesday evening. I just returned home from an evening out with some friends. We had a delicious dinner at the nearby restaurant LATE, and afterwards decided to go for drinks at Milk. We initially met for dinner at 9:00pm with plans for an early night. I have no idea where the time went.That's ok. I like it that way. Everything is...

It's okay Mom, I am alive and well and back in Cordoba.This past Thursday I flew with two other Remotes to Buenos Aires to attend Lollapalooza. Mario & Gabe (two homies from USC) were both working on Friday and hooked the three of us up with free tickets. Mario also let me stay with him in his hotel, so all I had to pay for...

Getting trashy at the park cleanup Real talk: Holy Week is a big deal in Córdoba. My current writing music comes from singers outside the nearby Iglesia de los Capuchinos, where a huge crowd has been singing for the past few hours. It’ll be an interesting week and I’m looking forward to seeing this part of la vida cordobesa. Those little Spanish phrases are starting...

The Ops Approach to Linux Server Security

    0
This post was originally a response to a question I received from a friend via email, with some additions. I’m not going to try to get very in-depth here, this is more of a high-level overview of what you should be doing to secure a server running Linux. This is mainly focused on a business environment where you have multiple users and multiple servers (and...

The Remote Year staff reached out to everyone who has been accepted to Darién to notify us of the change earlier this week, citing safety concerns about Turkey and Bolivia.

Halfway Through Month Number 2

    0
Wow I have been in Buenos Aires for 2 weeks now! The weeks here seem to fly but the days seem so long because I fill them with so much. Buenos Aires is a beautiful, vibrant city. It is frequently called the Paris of the South. Our group is in the upper middle class neighborhood of Palmero. There are tree lined streets filled with cafes...

Si, todo bien aquí.  All is good here. It’s week 3 of the adventure, and I can’t wait to see how the rest of the year compares with the excitement of the first location.  I’m still as pumped about Remote Year as I was in my last post. We’ve also had an exciting update for our itinerary, so for those of you thinking of planning a trip…...

Week 47: A Visit to Sleepy Kampot (Cambodia)

    0
After last weekend’s bed bug (and sand fly, as we later realized) misery, I spent the majority of the week at home, in air conditioning, rubbing myself with hydrocortisone and popping Benadryl like candy. One deviation from this was a visit to Tiny Toones’ studio. Dancing with Tiny Toones We learned a bit about Tiny Toones during our monthly junction and a group of us decided...

Re – Connect

11/26I spent Thanksgiving this year with family (grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins) in New Jersey that I hadn’t seen in years.  I’ve spent so much time on this swift cycle of work travel and investment into friendships and relationships in Los Angeles, I forgot how easy it is to distance your life from the people who still love you when you’re at your least finest,...

Prague City Guide

    0
Until now, I’ve never spent more than 2 consecutive weeks in a foreign country. There’s this weird transition that happens somewhere between day 1 and day 33 where you stop feeling like a tourist, a foreigner or visitor and start feeling like a traveller, an expat and resident. This is a list of places that made Prague home for me… a guide to the spots...

Ancient Pyramids and the Spring Equinox

Mexico was probably the most underrated destination that I’ve been to so far on my travels. I’ve heard enough stereotypes about Mexicans, and all I’ve heard about the country is how dangerous it is. Well after spending a month there I have nothing but love for Mexico. It didn’t take very long after I got off of the plane to … The post Ancient Pyramids...

1.6 | 48 Hours in Zagreb

    0
My last week of Croatia was spent in its capital, Zagreb. It is the largest city in Croatia and is located about 4 hours north of Split. First impressions may be that it isn’t picturesque like Split. It isn’t filled with locals relaxing on beach chairs or sunbathing along the water. It lacks palm trees and thousand year old fortresses, but Zagreb’s history still dates...

Bucket List: Be Comfortable Dining Alone

    0
I must confess that I have been dining alone for years…but it wasn’t until recently that I’ve become comfortable with it. In fact…dare I say it? I prefer to dine alone. Well, sometimes. When I first moved to LA, I couldn’t do anything solo, which was a problem since I didn’t know a single soul there. So it shouldn’t be surprising that I spent a lot...
