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...

Trip Preparation Update – Insect Precautions

    0
Howdy all. This will be a mixed post today. The first part will cover a quick update to all the things I previously had in flight preparing for my trip, and the second part will be a summary of the intensive research I’ve done on insect and mosquito repellents and other precautions. Several folks on the RY Facebook groups have been asking questions about what...

First Impressions

*Pauses to collect self and catch breath*Wow.Week 1 in Split, which simultaneously felt like the longest and shortest week of my life, is in the books. After (very) impatiently waiting for Remote Year to start since I got accepted back in September, I had read enough blogs to have a general idea of what to expect. However, no matter how much research (ok, let’s be honest — borderline...

Playing Golf in Split

    0
Found a little 6 hole golf course just outside of Split for a few rounds. Golf is not a popular sport in Croatia, there are only three golf courses in total.  The course we found – Golf Klub Split 1700 – is only 6 holes, but it just means you hit the clubhouse on the turn more often! And yes, that’s a donkey on the...

Will it Stick: December!

    0
After the existential crisis that was the Beyonce Instagram challenge of last month, I decided December needed to be a bit more physical. And you could argue that I cheated a little because I started prepping for one of these challenges in September, but I think when you read on you'll understand that it really made no difference in the outcome.Cambodia Challenge: Half-Marathon at Angkor...

Mendoza Wine Guide: 3 Days, 3 Nights

    0
Most of us dream of places like Mendoza: beautiful mountains, peaceful countryside and handsome winemakers (maybe that’s just me?).  But let’s not forget about the wine itself, especially Mendoza’s most notable, the Malbec. I spent last weekend in Mendoza (rough, I know), an area I’ve wanted to explore for some time.  I’ve been to many... The post Mendoza Wine Guide: 3 Days, 3 Nights appeared...

Creating a website and new beliefs!

A main feature of this blog is something I'll call "Morning Meanderings." Essentially, I'm setting the timer for 15 minutes in the morning, and whatever comes out in those 15 minutes gets posted. Each of these posts will start with my favorite morning prompt - "I celebrate, I clear, I desire" and then four things I feel grateful for.I celebrate… starting my website.I clear… my...

Boracay

Everyone knows I love a good beach, and when you’re in a country with one of the best in the world it just seems like the right thing to do – so we headed to Boracay! Getting to Boracay is no easy feat, and it took us a grab (philippine uber), a plane, a tricycle, a boat, an electric bike and a golf cart to...

Belgrade highlights

The land of cheap rakia, relentless chain smoking indoors, and dance floors so full of tables there's no room to actually dance. The most fascinating part of our stay was learning about the recent - and in some cases still persistent - conflict that the region has encountered. Seeing buildings bombed by NATO and hearing stories about how children would sit on rooftops to watch...

COLONIA DEL SACRAMENTO

    0
Just across the wide mouth of the Rio de la Plata from Buenos Aires lies the picturesque town of Colonia del Sacramento. Founded in the late 1600s by the Portuguese, Colonia was a highly contested city due to its strategic location on the coast and was tossed back and forth between Portuguese and Spanish powers until ultimately falling into the hands of the Spanish. Today,...

Slipping

I’m staring at my computer, listless, trying to remember what it is, exactly, that I’m supposed to be doing.I’ve been sitting in this chair for a month, letting the reality of my status as an office-worker slowly drown me, swallow me alive. I’ve felt, day by day, my soul desperately gasping for air, and I’ve quieted it. Covered it’s mouth. Let it succumb to lack of...
