So, I finally started a blog

    0
When I was at home and telling people about Remote Year, one of the first questions they asked was, “are you going to write a blog?” I kept giving a non-chalant – “oh yeah, I’m sure I’ll set up a blog at some point…” …and I kept meaning to set one up, but it got lost in the shuffle of other preparations. Now that I’m...

Initial Impressions

    0
Sunset in Montevideo After a lot of anticipation, planning, anxiety, packing, hugs and tears (my mom's not mine), I arrived in Montevideo, Uruguay on Sunday afternoon. I flew out of D.C. on Saturday night and caught a connecting flight from Miami to Montevideo. There were at least 15 other Remotes on my flight and I met a few of them standing in line to board...

Meet Empanadas

We're in Montevideo!via GIPHYIt's pretty great. The weather is nice, the people are nicer, and according to canidrinkthewater.org, the answer is yes, the water is fine. We've only been in the city for a few days-- and there are 75 new names to remember-- but we're already full on at the office and quickly integrating with the local community.  Our office for the month -...

Ometepe, Nicaragua

    0
Ometepe was not my favorite place. A quiet island on a very large lake, this area is tropical and has interesting wildlife, but not much culture or liveliness to it. I would come back only with a group or for a specific activity. I'm also jaded from seeing too many lakes and volcanoes recently ;). To reduce the amount of concrete, this school was built...

Looking Over The Horizon

    0
“Write a letter to your future self” That was the task given to myself and more than five hundred classmates as we filed into high school orientation on a balmy late-August morning. “You’ll receive this letter back with your high school diploma when you leave Highland Park High School,” the instructions continued. Like nearly everyone else, with the thought of graduation inconceivably far off and giddy to move...

Navigating the World of Volunteer Event Management

    0
Event planning is a 5 billion dollar industry. It’s a beast, with lots of specialties and niches. One that I’ve become intimately familiar with over the last few years is the volunteer event planning niche. This experience came in the form of House of Genius, Startup Weekend and on a larger scale, PHX Startup Week. All of these events are entirely fueled by local volunteers. When...

Last Minute Reflections

    0
The days have gone by SO fast, yet everything feels the same. Looking back at my calendar at the outpouring of love shown the last few weeks is amazing. With it though comes the realization that I haven’t really had time to reflect on what I’m doing, just powering through getting everything done before I go. As of today, everything is in storage and I’ve reduced my...

The Space Between

    0
On my first day in Melbourne, I met a very nice lady who owned a lingerie shop. She opened the business with her daughter who also directs films in Italy. Her latest movie The Space Between is due to be released in 2 weeks and is based on the real-life story of how her and her lover improbably crossed paths in Italy, and the decisions that...

Yoga for a Better Mood {Video}

    0
Any other sunshine lovers out there that struggle with the winter months? Sure, it is great to cozy up near the fire with a steamy mug and a good book, but it can definitely get gloomy. We tend to spend less time out in nature and are busier than ever with added holiday obligations. Sometimes, you just need some goofy yoga to pull you out...

Halong Bay – Life on the Water

    0
Falling asleep and waking up to the waves of Halong Bay was truly magical and felt like being in a never-ending dream. Day 2 of our cruise was filled with kayaking, fishing and cooking demonstrations – it truly was a wonderful ending to our Halong Bay experience. “If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands” has become something like our theme song –...

#73 Choeung Ek

    0
To visit places of Cambodia’s recent history and to see where past atrocities had taken place was so emotionally grueling that many of us had put off our pilgrimage to The Killing Fields. No one wanted to have that pit-of-your-stomach-sick-feeling we’d experienced at s21. But, the time arrived when we had no time left; we had to go now or else we’d risk not going...

Week 23: The Start of Praugust, Czech Please, and Other Puns

    0
When fellow Remote Kelly came up with the term Praugust, we all jumped on it like the nerds we truly are. IT’S JUST SO GOOD. Anyway, I had been to Prague in 2012 with Angela for a couple of days, and fell in love with the fairytale city. Aside from Cusco, this was probably the city I was most excited for at the start of...

I walked home in the rain

    0
It’s been months since I posted on this blog. Literally 10 weeks, maybe 11, but who’s counting? I had all sorts of reasons set aside in my head on why I haven’t written. Cuba was complex and confusing. I was busy. There was so much going on in CDMX, Bogota, and Medellin, that I haven’t had time to write. All lies. The truth is that...

Don’t Be Afraid Take The Road Less Travelled

    0
Whim. Spontaneously. Random. Last Minute. Surprises. Spending a month and a half on the road has made me want to be more flexible with planning. Being an event planner that is the opposite of my natural way of doing things. While I am always up for a unique thrill I typically have my days and […]
