Buenos Aires Street Art

    0
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...

CLAIRE CAME TO VISIT

    0
Hey guys, have I ever told you about a dreamboat named Claire? We met when I lived in Bangkok for 5 months in 2011, and her first impression of me was summed up in one word: "annoying."When I flew to New York to interview for Harvey's desk, she, serendipitously, had meetings in NYC at the same time. And she was staying at the hotel next...

Cusco, Peru: first impressions

    0
Seven of us landed in Peru yesterday morning. We shared meals, got caught in a hailstorm, tried (and failed) to join a walking tour, snuggled baby llamas, and got (more than a little) tipsy on pisco sours.Here are a few first impressions from a truly blissful day, exploring with friends: It's so pretty it's so prettyCusco's charm is hard to resist. Walk anywhere around the Plaza...

OlsenBest brunch in town. I loved the atmosphere with the opening wall and tons of natural light. NininaA great bakery with great food.

Santiago, Chile

    0
I visited Santiago, Chile for the first time twelve years ago as the gateway to my first South American adventure. American Airlines was running a promotion that gave a free international round-trip ticket anywhere in the world that the airline flew in exchange for buying a round-trip ticket to Florida and California. I did a weekend trip with my roommate Nick to Fort Lauderdale and then I must...

Side eyeing Africanly

    0
Within the first week of our stay in Belgrade (Serbia), Martine was ambushed by a very eager young woman for a picture. Why, you ask? Because Martine is a black woman. Martine and I are OFTEN mistaken for each other. Why, again, you ask? Because we are two of three black women in our cohort of Remote Year. If you are the person who usually...

I’d say Bye in Czech, if I had learned it

    0
I said Prague was like a breath of fresh air, relaxing and livable, and it was. So livable that I waited until the day before we left to see THE sites - Charles Bridge, John Lennon Wall, etc.Our workspace was magical and really added to the experience of the month. It didn't hurt that it was next door to a park with a vineyard in it,...

COSME

    0
New York has no shortage of good eats, obviously. Despite the plentiful fare throughout the city, I have always felt a lack of quality Mexican - maybe because I'm a California girl and we have good Mexican around every corner or who knows. Imagine my joy on my recent trip to New York, when I learned that famed Mexican chef Enrique Olvera (of Mexico City'sPujol) has a restaurant...

We’ve officially passed the two week mark of our Remote Year adventure. For me, it feels like we’ve been here a month. There’s this weird time-warp that happens when you’re traveling. Days seem like weeks and weeks seem like months. You experience so many new things so often, it’s hard to really wrap your mind around it all. Not only are our senses overwhelmed from being...

Why Does This Blog Exist?

    0
I've never thought of myself as someone who would blog. Leave the writing to journalists and post on Facebook or Twitter to get your thoughts out...or just keep a journal... or just... talk to people?But I couldn't put in words how much I have relied on the blogs, vlogs and stories of Remote Year participants and other long-term travelers while preparing for this experience I'm...

Week 25: The Calm Before the {Travel} Storm

Another week means more opportunities to explore our “home” between getting work done & sleeping. This one was no exception with all the activities, plus the extra bonus of a visitor coming at the end of the week! Since the world is so small, Chris had a school friend in Malaysia at the same time while we were there. On Monday they decided to head...

Borneo’s Wicked Wildlife – Pt 2

    0
No trip to Borneo is complete without seeing wild orangutans.  Seeing animals in a zoo is depressing.  Seeing them in the semi-wild is wicked sweet!!   If you visit Kuching, you gotta go to Semenggoh Nature Reserve.  It's less than an hour from the city.  For a little context, Kuching is the capital city of the state of Sarawak, which is on the island of Borneo, which is...

9 Tips For Visiting Iceland’s Blue Lagoon

    0
The Blue Lagoon is basically the Disneyland of Iceland. It’s touristy AF, and happens to be 100% manmade (who knew?!), but is also one of those “you’ve gotta do it because everyone else has done it and Instagrammed about it” things that we all end up doing while traveling. And as much as I hate to say it, it is really worth it. Despite the fact that there are long...
