Colonial Charm in Colonia del Sacramento

    0
Despite the abundance of things to do in Buenos Aires, I recently decided to take a break from the city and head back across Río de La Plata (the river that separates Argentina and Uruguay) to Uruguay. I spent the day with a couple of friends exploring the historic quarter of Colonia del Sacramento, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After a quick ten-minute walk from the...

Month 2: Buenos Aires, Argentina

    0
Let’s start with “No, I’m not dead. Please stop asking.” Turns out Buenos Aires (BA) is a super badass city with an un-doable amount of stuff to do, but I’m trying to get it all in. Highlights Fuerza Bruta – this insane interactive live show with water, confetti, a running man, gunshots, and ceiling acrobats. I’m going back again this weekend if that says anything....

BIG SURPRISE

After Peru, we have a brutal double layover flight from Cusco to London. However, for a very small cost I was able to switch my flight so I travel through NYC instead of Bogota.That's right Land of the Free, I'll be returning to the homeland for Fourth of July! I'll be in NYC from 7/3-7/9 and continuing on to London after that. Excited to see everyone,...

Catching up with Cordoba

    0
Panic. Eyes open wide. Brain frantically sifting through however many vocabulary words in English, then German, then Korean. Uhhh…I don’t even know how to say “I don’t know” in Spanish. Feeling completely helpless and flustered beyond belief, I stared at the lady behind the empanada counter as if looking at her longer would somehow create a… Read More Catching up with Cordoba

Wine, Public Speaking, How To Deal: Things I Learned This Week

    0
Well, it finally happened. This week marked the first time I felt vulnerable on Remote Year. It was dark and late on a Wednesday evening, around when the streets of Cordoba start to empty — not so people can sleep, of course, but so they can eat their 10PM dinners. I was pretty nervous but trying to keep my cool, a common feeling in an...

Same, same, but different: an interview with Riley Maguire

    0
As part of my Remote Year experience, I'll be writing a series about finding your place in the world, both physically and metaphorically. This means we'll be taking a break from boring life updates to talk to people that we meet along the road - expats, locals, ninjas, and animals - anyone who's got an interesting story to tell about where they are in life...

Semaña Santa

    0
Happy Easter!! Part of the journey around the world for a year is immersing yourself in the local culture but not losing who you are in the process. As a Catholic, Semaña Santa (Holy Week) offered me a great chance to find balance between those two.  While the entire week there were many services and events I went to Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and...

Here’s How 181 Digital Nomads Are Making Money – The Results May Surprise You

    0
There are 3 main types of Digital Nomads in Remote Year: Employees, Freelancers, and Entrepreneurs. If someone asked: “Out of the 3 types of Digital Nomads, which type do you think is the most popular?” Many may answer: “Freelancer.” After all, it sure seems that Freelancers have the greatest flexibility in terms of their schedule and location. Wrong. It turns out, the most popular Digital Nomads are...

THE LOFOTEN ISLANDS

    0
Far into Norway's untamed North lies the famed archipelago of Lofoten. Here, craggy mountains that resemble the back of some amphibious creature reach steeply into the sky as they twist and turn around the turquoise-y, blue waters of this rugged coastline. Linked by roads, bridges, and tunnels the islands are dotted with picturesque, colorful fishing villages, grazing sheep, the mercurial Northern Lights on clear winter...

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...

Puerto Escondido, Mexico

    0
This expat-friendly beach destination is popular with surfers, Canadians and Europeans owing to the strength of their currency here. My international-friend group has been in my ear for the past year about it. After a short romance with CDMX last autumn, I decided that it was time to make time to explore Mexico so what better place to start than Puerto Escondido. I made a...

That is the reason for the title of the post.Spain had been one of the countries I was mostly looking forward to based on all the rave reviews I had previously heard from travelers I have crossed paths with in the past.

Nearly 20 of us traveled to/met up in the beach town Cartagena over Easter weekend. My birthday was that Saturday, and it started with a lazy brunch at a fabulous cafe, followed by rooftop […]

Month 2: Prague

    0
Prague is one of those cities that takes your breath away.  The whimsical, fairytale-like streets of Old Town and the bohemian allure makes this girl feel like a modern day princess; minus the prince, riches, and gowns. Nonetheless, it swept me off my feet and I fell head over heals in love. A few of the highlights: The Prague astronomical clocks is the oldest still working...
