Who goes on a trip around the world? Remote Year 3: Team Cousteau

    0
One of the first questions I am often asked when talking about Remote Year is "what kind of jobs do these people have that lets them to travel for a year?" As expected, many are from creative fields such as design, writing, and development, but honestly, we're a very diverse group from all walks of life. Not only do we have wildly different careers, but...

    0

More in the sense that we’re only here for a month (yes, I realize most people visit for a much shorter period of time) and I still don’t feel like I can do all the things, visit all the cute cafés, eat at all the great restaurants and really take in all the different areas of...
