Houston, We Have Liftoff!

    0
In Portugal we have the tradition to eat 12 raisins in 12 seconds and ask for 12 wishes after the clock hits midnight on New Year’s Eve. Well, in 2016 I will switch these wishes for countries instead! Say what?! This year, I'm going to be travelling around the world and live in 12 different countries, each for a month. How is this possible? Because...

SNAPSHOT OF KYOTO TEMPLES

    0
I love Japanese architecture for its complex simplicity (if that makes any sense to you). From afar, the forms and design seem simple, but take a closer look and the structures and components are actually wildly complicated, intricate, and labor intensive. This almost effortless beauty is innate in Japanese culture as a whole and can be seen not only in architecture but also in food,...

Reflection

    0
Reflection is the change in direction of a wavefront at an interface between two different media so that the wavefront returns into the medium from which it originated. Reflection is a useful tool sometimes. I’m a big proponent of taking a step back to look at the big picture – ensuring that often routine thoughts and actions truly align with desired outcomes and changes. So even...

And you will listen to my story. Or you will just scroll down to the cool pictures below. Still here?Ingólfr Arnarson (yes that Ingólfr) was a slave trading Norwegian...

Context Switch

In less than 30 days, I‘ll be embarking on a journey that will take me to at least 12 countries over 12 months. In computing, a context switch is...

Granada, Nicaragua

    1
Granada:THE BASICSColorful tourist-driven town full of churches. Worth a stop through for a couple days, but not a whole lot to see here. HIGHLIGHTS- I did the most recommended boat tour of the nearby islands in Lake Nicaragua, and it was nice. Other than that I don't think there is much to do here. Get a massage, eat some over-priced tourist food and relax a...

Dr. Rajiv Bhanot: Using smart tech to improve access to safe drinking water

    0
1.8 billion people use a source of drinking water that is contaminated by sewage and unsafe to drink¹.

Since launching H2GO in 2011, Dr. Rajiv Bhanot has brought clean drinking water to over 1.5 million people, and not just...

Travel Gear: Ten Favorites

SwissGear adapter/converter. I've taken it to a variety of countries and it has worked in their outlets. It even worked with my hair straightener and nothing lit on fire afterwards. Towel wrap. Any of my roommates will refer to this as "my uniform." It is this turquoise towel that I have had for about 7 years. You can wear it before/after the shower, to bed. I...

Day 284

    0
Don’t worry today was actually productive – I went on a hike through a legitimate jungle, forded six rivers/moving bodies of water of various sizes and intensities (big ups to the generic Tevas a bought yesterday, the real MVP of my day), ended up at a waterfall where I ate almost an entire bag of *WHOLE WHEAT* goldfish, watched people jump off a big slippery...

I want those slumber party nights and giggle fests and pics in our bikinis (okay, fine…one pieces) by the pool.But I don’t want it to be fake. I want that real authentic girlfriend love that sometimes I am too quick to ignore because...

In my life prior to Remote Year, I was constantly thinking about my purpose in life. What am I on this planet for? If I died tomorrow, what will my legacy be? Maybe to some I...

Day 343

    0
Spent my afternoon at a family-run Buddhist temple learning from the 23rd generation head priest and his daughter, a priestess, talking about Kyoto and Japan and Buddhism and reflecting on the year, and then did an hour-long Taikio class where an ex-ballerina showed us how she can literally move her organs around in her body. I detoxed from that… experience with a bowl of ramen. Photo...

Comment on White Wine Thai Chicken Curry Soup by Vina Chalice

I love the thoughtfulness that came with pairing wine with Thai soup. It’s great to explore this, because wine doesn’t grow well in Thailand’s hot climate, but can definitely complement their spices.

La Paz, Bolivia

Leaving the larger cities behind, we've headed to the elevation of La Paz, Bolivia. They warned us that: "At 12,000 ft elevation, and colder weather, La Paz will definitely take a toll on those doing a lot of walking or drinking." But seriously... altitude sickness is a thing.
