India explained

    0
India can be very confusing to a first time westerner; so full of magical sights, smells and cows. To help this theoretical first time India traveler, I have compiled a list of some things that will help to understand the culture, climate and driving rules, to avoid death.Cars will not stop for pedestrians (or other cars). It may seem as if they are ignoring lane...

I come back to the States in less than a week (I know you're all very excited to see me).The last few days I have spent in Jerusalem. Most of my time was spent in the old city, which is this extremely confusing maze of alleyways that is completely walled in. Most of the alleys our filled with shops. I'd say there around two thousand...

If you have any spare time, you should check out Jordan.In Wadi Rum we went off road through the desert for an entire day. Our tour guide Ali (Everyone I have met in Arab countries have been name Muhammad, Achmed, or Ali) was hilarious, but pretty crazy behind the wheel. He was flying up and down sand dunes, weaving in and out of rock, and...

Manic Marrakech

Manic Marrakesh Morocco and I had a rough start. That new normal I found in Vietnam, well, it turned into a dumpster fire. My suitcase broke, my phone broke, my phone was repaired, my phone broke again, Wi-Fi stopped working, cellular service was not available, my computer stopped charging. It is unclear to me if […]

All the feels

There are 18 days left in Remote Year. Umm, what?! How did that happen? How did the last year FLY by? How was last year simultaneously the shortest and longest year of my life? I feel like I’ve learned so much about myself and the world, but what IS it? What did I really learn and how will it affect my future?  Note that this...

When the fear wears off

When you jump off a cliff into the untamed waves below, the exhilaration of your first jump is unmatched. You immediately climb up to do it again. To feel that apprehension in your stomach get over taken by pure delight. You hope to recapture that feeling. But you can never have it again. Not in the same way. The fear has changed it's flavor in...

Week 37: When It’s Raining Every Day, You Know You’re in Kuala Lumpur

    0
After a relatively pain-free 24-hour flight, I found myself catching an Uber to my hotel in Kuala Lumpur. Within ten minutes, the sky went from smoggy, hazy sunshine to straight up downpour. My driver expertly navigated the now-rivers while I smiled to myself: ah, Asia! The last leg of this crazy adventure had arrived… Taking off the Training Wheels I opted out of Remote Year...

This was our first stop outside of Europe and was the first time in which I have ever been to an Arabic Country. I will say my time in Morocco was challenging, but my time there opened my eyes to things I would have never thought I would see...

Started the day with a spin class, worked my way through two different lovely cafes, finally landed at one of the workspaces and worked outside for as long as my computer battery allowed, discovered a very cute multi-level bookstore + cafe on the way home, and capped off the day with a rousing order of Indian food + Clueless in bed.
