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...

My favorite places from Buenos Aires, Argentina

    0
OlsenBest brunch in town. I loved the atmosphere with the opening wall and tons of natural light. NininaA great bakery with great food. The wifi was solid as well, so you could imagine how many Remotes would fill up this space. FukuroRamen! The food selection is Buenos Aires was amazing after coming from Córdoba. So happy to finally get something in me besides bread, meat...

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...

Week 8: Tango, Touring, Tigre (Buenos Aires)

    0
I have a confession to make: I cheated a little. See, you already know how this week started out because I was still in Patagonia/hanging with Ryan at the beginning of the week. Two major highlights worth reemphasizing: Steaks by Luis. A closed-door restaurant where I had a life-changing steak (see pics) Karaoke at Sugar, which I think I forgot about but is equally important...

Departing Soon!

    1
I’m about to leave my life in Chicago behind for a year of exploration, self-discovery and probably a whole lot of debauchery. Where in the world will I be?I have a one-way ticket to Prague and it leaves on May 29th, 2016 (and no, it still doesn’t feel real). Join my foray into blogging and read my thoughts on travel, pens/handwriting, the beauty of gifs,...

Bashar Humeid: Freedom is a greenhouse on your rooftop

    0
What’s on the roof of your house? How about on the rooftop of the building where you work or go to school? If you’re like me (and much of the world), your answer is “nothing”. Your rooftop is largely unutilized space. But what if your rooftop heated and cooled your house? What if it did that for free, and collected your water and produced healthy,...

Mexico City, Mexico

    0
I shake my head recollecting the period of time I believed Mexico City to be a polluted, dirty, crowded, dangerous and ugly city not worth visiting. I’m not exactly sure why I came to believe this but it probably had something to do with an American bias that perceived things happening south of the boarder generally repugnant. This same perspective admittedly also inhibited me from...

Signed in Paris, but lowkey mad

    0
I don't think of myself as an angry person. But this is in the context of Washington, D.C., where our politics are poisonous and the well-meaning liberals who want to change the world are gentrifying the city block by block. I consider myself one of those "go with the flow types", generally believing that everything will work out and that when life acts up all...

Blowing Up in Italy

    0
So my flat is filled with Italian men. They are passionately arguing whether it's safe to turn the gas back on. The "Gas man" keeps pointing at me and then making these explosion sounds while gesturing explosion with his arms; you know like you might toss confetti into the air at a party. Well it is a celebration. After all, it's #friendsday and while that...

Find More Gratitude, Find More Happiness

    0
Have you ever rolled your eyes as a friend who says, "I'll feel happier when I lose ten pounds," when just last month, they said they'd be happier if they had the new car, which is now sitting in their driveway? Truth is, when we are chasing happiness in material items, other people, or circumstances, we will never find it. Instead, we find our true...

Happier Now

    0
It's been 3 months since I have been back in the United States and I've been a little bit quiet, because truthfully I had no clue what had hit me. The transition back to life in America was much harder than I could have anticipated. My mind, and body were exhausted from the long-term travel. The world got a lot louder when I began to...

A Weekend in Cuba

    0
It seemed like a good idea at the time.Months out from our departure for Remote Year, we were already scheming all sorts of fantastic side trips, the first of which would whisk us to the island nation of Cuba a mere two weeks after landing in Mexico City.When facing the reality of this on the ground, it was a little daunting. We were still adjusting to life...

All the Moments a Man Followed Me Around in Marrakesh

    0
The first time was the day after I landed in Morocco. I’m traveling with a Remote Year, a remote work and travel program, and a week before they gave us a presentation about Marrakesh. Being the good student I am, I listened hard and I thought I knew what to expect. “Their customs and cultural norms are going to be different than what I’m used to,” I reminded myself that early...
