What.a.month.  I’m en route to Buenos Aires for cuidad numero dos,  and am not sure how the time is flying by this quickly. For a city that I had never heard of before Remote Year, I loved Córdoba.  We described it as “butterflies and rainbows” in South America.  It’s a hidden gem, and it will hold a special place in mi corazon forever. Córdoba is a small city...

Hemant Chanrai: A social entrepreneur bringing solar power to Indonesia

    0
“Nothing I do is really special or proprietary to me. I took an interest, collected some money, and went out and did what I thought was important. It’s not only well-connected people that can do this. Anyone can do what I’ve done.” A recent study by the United Nations found that one in six people living in Indonesia did not have adequate access to energy....

Week 5: Ciao, Córdoba!

    0
This week was a whirlwind of trying to pack in everything I hadn’t gotten to in Córdoba. It’s amazing what limited time will do for motivation: I got to see so much of the city and be really productive at work. (A word on work: things are starting to get really busy as I pick up a new assignment. For the next few months, I’ll...

Most of the remotes and our 23948230 pounds of luggage are on two massive double-deckers driving to our new temporary homes in Buenos Aires. The buses are more comfortable than anticipated and the trip has been smooth sailing. When I wasn’t taking one of six naps, I was watching one of our A+...

They told...

Day 230

Remote tip: If you walk into a 5-star, super expensive hotel lounge and whip out your computer, they don’t know if you’re a guest or not so you can get all set up with wifi and delicious food + drinks and get treated like you can actually afford the $500/night stay when in reality you made eggs + toast for dinner last night instead of...

“Gongggggg-gonggggg-gongggg”. My heart starts pounding, and I’m wide awake. I hear the fleeting sound of naked feet running down the hallway in front of my room. ‘It’s the wake-up bell’, my mind calmly suggests to my heart who’s still recovering from the adrenaline shock. No need to look at the clock, I know exactly what time it is. 4:55am. I should be used to this...

To finish off the first week here in Córdoba, our wonderful team leaders, Travis and Samantha (aka Tramantha, the masterminds behind #RY3), planned an Amazing Race-style scavenger hunt through our new city. Armed with pretty aggressive hangovers from the previous night’s festivities, our teams of six set out to explore, find and pose in front of some of Córdoba’s must-see spots. We started at La Cañada stream,...

Portugal’s Brand Icon

    0
Cans vs. Cocks If there’s a country that’s in need of a new brand icon, it’s Portugal. You may be familiar with the Rooster of Barcelos. That colourful cock that folklore said came back to life to prove a man’s innocence. It’s a 17th century relic. It’s time to move on Portugal. Lay that rooster to rest and stand by your favourite fish… the sardinha. These savoury sardines make up...

Fried Fish. A Simple but Rewarding Dish A whole fried fish may be the best representation of the sea I can think of. Simple, rustic, interesting and tasty. It fits into any cuisine and nearly any city with a coastline has a restaurant serving it I believe. And in Cartagena, Colombia it is [...]
