Well, I am having so much fun here in India, that I have decided to stay an extra week. Sorry to those waiting anxiously to see me. I will tell you, its not cause of the office food...I don't have a lot of new interesting pictures because I have been working 14 hours a day, which is why I'm paid the big bucks. I will,...

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...

PUJOL

For those that haven't yet seen the Chef's Table episode on Enrique Olvera & his flagship restaurant Pujol, perhaps open a new browser and head over to Netflix and watch the episode. Chef's Table will give you a far better representation of the chef, the restaurant, and the overall ethos of the place. Arriving at Pujol, the facade is stark, slatted wooden walls with two...

On Silence, Being Yourself, and Positivity

    0
Awkward silences make me uncomfortable. I am (or should I say used to be), the kind of person who had to always be facilitating conversations. If I saw that a friend/colleague was talking too much and someone was left out, I'd try to bring up a neutral topic or shift the topic to them so they could be involved. With a PR background, I'd like...

For Jason’s birthday it was decided that we would do a reenactment of Macklemore's "Downtown". Best. Idea.EVER.With the song blaring out of Jo’s pickup, Jason standing in the back of it - looking pimping - we lined up on our scoots in the Loyfa car park, revving our engines moving forward slight with every rev. Jacri stood in between the bikes and the pickup and...

What an amazing adventure we have had through desert canyons, giant tree forest, Western coasts, big cities, and campsites in the middle of no where. This final week, we spent our time relaxing with friends in Edmonton and exploring in Banff. Throughout the journey, we continued to...

My Time In MoroccoMy 5th month on Remote Year was spent in the African country Morocco. 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...
