Córdoba: A Culture of Happiness

    0
To finish off the first week here in Córdoba, our wonderful team leaders, Travis and Samantha (aka Tramantha, the masterminds behind #RY3), planned an Amazing Race-style scavenger hunt through our new city. Armed with pretty aggressive hangovers from the previous night’s festivities, our teams of six set out to explore, find and pose in front of some of Córdoba’s must-see spots. We started at La Cañada stream,...

Mendoza, Argentina

    0
Ahh Mendoza. Malbec, steak, olive oil and endless, rolling hills of scenic views of the Andes. I wouldn’t know — I spend 5 days in Mendoza city which is, let me tell you, not nearly as cool as the surrounding countryside, villas, estancias or wineries. Such is the price I choose to pay while working during my travelling (instead of travelling to be on vacation). That...

LET’S TALK ABOUT A THING CALLED COLD FEET

    0
Surprised?I'm offered this amazing opportunity that seems tailor made for me, but I got cold feet. In the weeks leading up to my departure from the home land I really started to think maybe going on Remote Year wasn't the best idea. FedEx and USPS both broke my boxes and terribly repacked them with strangers' possessions included. Add on the stress of getting all of...

Five Colorado Photo Faves

    0
In October 2014 I moved from Texas to Longmont, CO in order to experience the amazing beer culture in Colorado. While there, I fell in love with the mountains and natural beauty of the state and rekindled my interest in photography. These are just five of my favorite photos I took while in Colorado. I hope you enjoy. 1. Reflections of a Mountain Morning This...

It's hard to believe that we have been here six days. It feels like longer. And the experience of travel with a large, tech savvy group is proving interesting and exciting. The major difference between now and when Diane and hit the road internationally ten years ago, is the difference between life 15 years ago and today: the omnipresence of the internet, and the rapidly...

20 Things You Should Know Before Moving to Dubai

    0
Moving to the Middle East from anywhere in the world is an eye-opening experience that’s guaranteed to blow your mind, test your patience and forever change the way that you operate in the world.  Dubai is a city of contradictions. Where there are beautiful hotels there are underpaid, underprivileged migrant workers who built them. Where there are man made islands, oceans used to flourish. It...

About

    0
About Me I am many things, but perhaps most of all I am a life-long learner. I aspire to become a renaissance man, although I see the journey ahead as being long (and a whole lot of fun). My interests are fairly broad, and I tend to pick up new hobbies and interests often, delve deeply into them, and then file them away to make...

Preparing for Remote year

    0
As I prepare for Remote Year, I'm adding many items to my to do list. Packing, address changes, notifying credit cards, saying goodbye.I need to be out of my apartment next week because I'm subletting it for 2017. Packing always takes longer than one thinks so I know I will be rushed last minute. I keep buying more weather-tite bins from the Container Store, four...

Bogotá, Colombia

Bogota wasn’t my favorite place I have visited but the city managers that we had were some of the best. Cata and Luis completely made our experience in Bogota epic. I was fortunate to go on a trip with some of my good friends Wilhelmus and Anis to Cartagena and Santa Marta for a few weeks and it was one of the best side trips...

Hangin’ in Hungary

    0
Budapest, Hungary is an uncomfortable and sketchy 9-hour overnight train ride from Belgrade. I left the train station in Serbia late one Thursday night with three of my friends from Remote Year to visit Budapest for the weekend. We didn't splurge on the 4-person cabin, so it was a roll of the dice who our other two cabin mates would be. We got lucky with...

Merida and Progreso

The city team in Mexico recommended we hit the city of Merida on our side trip, so we did!  It was a smaller city – well, anything would be compared to Mexico City, but had a really interesting architecture and life to it.  We were there for Independence Day, which I don’t have many pictures of not wanted to have my phone out in the...

Pavement Life

    0
Being from the UK you learn that pavements are for pedestrians and only pedestrians. Obstacles, that get in the way, be it signs, parked cars, bikes chained to railings or too many cafe tables and chairs are generally frowned upon, particularly if it inhibits the ability to walk. But not so in Hanoi, Vietnam. In Vietnam the pavement is all about life and every activity...

“What do you Like about America?”

Today I found myself in several 9th grade classrooms in Nykoping, Sweden. My best friend from University is an English Teacher here, and a native to Nykoping. This is my first stop on my journey and she wanted to bring me to her classrooms to give the students the experience of meeting and conversing with an American. I was asked many questions by bright, bubbly,...
