La Paz, Bolivia. Over 2 miles above sea level, it's the shit, literally, but more on that later.Remote Year did a very good job prepping us for what to expect. We moved from BA, which is an international hub, to a place with not enough oxygen, wires everywhere, and more hills than San Francisco, which I didn't think was possible.Coming off the plane, I could immediately...

T-16: You Mean I Can’t Just Wing It?

    0
I've never been the kind of person who stresses about things. Overall I'm pleased with it as a trait; I've never lost sleep over anything, and I have an unrivaled ability to compartmentalize. I've always taken the attitude that the more you worry about things, the more likely they are to go wrong. In my devil-may-care existence things tend to work themselves out. TBH, I'm...

It’s not Remote Year or bust.

    0
Yesterday, I chatted with someone who was just accepted into Remote Year.He expressed hesitations about the program and wanted an honest view from someone doing it - beyond the Instagram feeds with verbose captions and the constant expressions of gratitude. A note to readers: I'm always willing to do that, if you've been accepted into RY and are not sure whether or not to join the program....

Applying good habits to nomadism

    0
I've been traveling full-time for three months and change.In digital nomad terms, that's nothing. Some spend three months in one place before switching countries. Some have been traveling for years, with no idea when they'll return home. But to me, three months feels like a lifetime.When I joined Remote Year, I gave myself a bit of a buffer in order to adjust to traveling. I...

Snowclones, Memechés, and Why Linguistics Matters

However, such bullies may specifically benefit from a greater appreciation of diction and history, as alluded to at the end of this post.A few clicks from some site I no longer recall led me to the Wikipedia entry...

Kuala Lumpur Bears

Where are all the kuala bears? This was the question that I asked myself as I walked through the super hot and humid streets of Kuala Lumpur. It was the first Asian city that I was calling home on my journey and I was super excited for the opportunity to see kuala bears. I would soon find out, to my extreme disappointment, that not only are...

It’s about to get deep here, folks.The location of this tattoo is as important to me as the three concepts I have had woven into the drawing; a circle, a triangle and a lotus flower. It resides on top of the third cervical vertebrae of my back, at the base of my skull...

I was in Riga for a week. I was busy with work but really enjoyed the architecture. It’s a beautiful, peaceful city that made for a great visit. The highlight was one day exiting a café I was working from to have an old friend message me on my phone — “Reid did I just see you leave Rocket Bean Roastery here in Riga?” My...

Dining In The Dark

Dining in the dark is a restaurant concept that has taken the world by storm. Although many of them are Kitschy tourist traps, it is such a unique experience to eat and drink while you can’t see anything. Your tastes and smells and other senses are heightened because you have no sight. The dining in the […]

Weeks 12 & 13

The past week has been an incredible experience- I knew Morocco was beautiful and crazy and hectic and hot, but I truly didn’t even know the half of it. The country is GORGEOUS. Like eye opening, stunning, don’t-know-what-to-do-with-yourself gorgeous. From mountains, gorges, deserts, and valleys filled with luscious forests, to huge crazy cities and smaller more relaxed ones, this place has it all. Plus people...
