New Beginnings in Buenos Aires

    0
Buenos Aires is overwhelming. Not in a bad way. More in the sense that we’re only here for a month (yes, I realize most people visit for a much shorter period of time) and I still don’t feel like I can do all the things, visit all the cute cafés, eat at all the great restaurants and really take in all the different areas of...

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...

My apartment in Córdoba, Argentina

    0
When spending a year living around the world, it's best to let go of all expectations and enjoy the ride. That including dealing with living arrangements. With Remote Year, you never know what your living situation will be like until the minute you walk in the door. In my case, so far so good. My place in Córdoba is nothing fancy, but the water is hot,...

The Hardest Thing About Being My Own Boss

    0
I’m an indecisive person. It’s not because I don’t have opinions. And no, I don’t have commitment issues. I’m just an over-thinker. Case in point: unless I have a specific craving, I have to read at least six menus before I can even consider ordering takeout. When Pablo (boyfriend) is not around, I often don’t eat at all. I sit there, waiting, getting hungrier by the...

Last Saturday, a small band of eight of us from Remote Year boarded a bus early in the morning bound for the countryside and mountains outside of Cordoba. Our friend David Baum met someone in the city one night who's friends own a farm, and they've recently branched into agrotourism. No, not "aggro tourism."This...The farm is owned by two incredible women, Pamela and Gigi, along...

'Missed Connections' by Sophie Blackall The first time I ever cried on the subway was when I got the news that my grandma had had a bad fall and was in the hospital. After I got my dad’s phone call I excused myself from work and ran out of my office, trying to avoid waterworks in front of my coworkers. By the time I got...

Doing It In a Van

YOU DO YOU, Berlin!

    0
The be yourself spirit of Berlin shines in it’s street art, fashion and dress. Berlin will embrace you, accept you, inspire you, confuse you and entice you.  It will make you see yourself and everyone else in a new way. There is the obvious historical and popular sites you have to see in Berlin. (Checkpoint Charlie, Berliner Daum, […]

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...
