So what goes in the bag?The bag itself:-Osprey sojourn 25” 60L (awesome because it has wheels as well)-Incase laptop backpackClothes:1 Raincoat1 Hoodie1 Nicer sweater2 Pair Yoga pants2 Pair...

Recap: It’s been a gypsy summer

    0
It's been a hectic few months, and if you know me well, I've probably crashed on your couch, floor or bed. Playing house in SoCal didn't work out as I planned, and when I no longer knew where to call home, I realized nowhere felt more like home than the road. I've been going full digital nomad for a few months now... Driving on three...

Obsessive healthy packing tips

    0
I spent months covering my self in deet insect repellent and cheap sunscreen everyday when I traveled through SEA a year ago, and it's just awful. Having nicer, organic products that don't hate your skin when you are traveling is well worth it. These are just a few of the products I use to feel not like a chemical wasteland while on the road.From left...

I dag sagde jeg nej til et godt jobtilbud og betalte 20.000 kr. for en usikker fremtid!

Hvordan er det nu med den der mavefornemmelse? Er det ikke meningen, at den skal hoppe og spjætte og blinke neongult, når man er på vej til at træffe den rette beslutning? Nu gjorde jeg det, sprang ud i det med hud og hår, men jeg kan ikke høreThe post I dag sagde jeg nej til et godt jobtilbud og betalte 20.000 kr. for en...

Learning to Relinquish Expectations

    0
Expectations; or what I like to call seeds of unhappiness, I believe are the root cause of an overwhelming amount of dissatisfaction within our society. These seeds can be found in friendships, relationships, work or even just small day-to-day experiences. By surrounding ourselves with expectations, we remove the opportunity to be completely and totally happy with the present moment and what we’ve been given. A...

Lenses

    0
Everything you see and do creates and modifies a permanent lens thru which you view everything past, present, and future. In addition to that, hopefully you are intentionally observing and updating the way you view yourself. everyone has a youtube video or photo that someone showed them that they really wish they could un-see. unfortunately, it is forever part of your view. There are some more...

London calling. Sorry I’m busy at the moment could you please call back later.

Many moons ago, when I signed up for this Remote Year program (was there a time before Remote Year?), our July itinerary was listed as Istanbul, Turkey. Then some bombs went off and Remote Year decided to change the itinerary and send us to the country that I can only assume was created in America's image. No I'm not talking about Canada, I'm talking about...

Japan: Tour D’Horizon

    0
From standing sushi to sitting elbow-to-elbow with locals in the ramen shop, Japan is a trip for the taste buds. Sprinkled in every direction are amazing restaurants, bars, lounges, cafes, tiny hole in the walls, and street markets giving Japan some serious culinary cred.Kyoto, my home for this month, is a city of a thousand temples, and shrines with masterpieces of religious architecture. Even as...

#15 Margarita Time

So a birthday with Commonwealth is always going to involve four elements:1. Drink.2. Food.3. Dancing.4. LOTS of Noise.I’ve entitled this piece Margarita Time because not only did we drink a couple of bottles of red wine over a meal at Pampas Bar and Grill just a short walk from our apartments, we also sank 33 Margaritas (& not everyone in the group was drinking them...

A Chef Let Loose in Buenos Aires

    0
I came to Buenos Aires expecting every street corner to have a lamb leaning over a fire and a gaucho sipping mate. Silly me… ignoring the fact that it was the capital city and full of 12+ million people! Instead, I found what you see in many capital cities- bars and restaurants on every corner, museums you could spend a whole day in, more public...

Week 6 Recap: In-FES-tation

Boy, time sure flies when you're going to the bathroom every 15 minutes! Week 6 is over and sure was a doozy. Morocco is growing on me but my stomach continues to refuse to let it happen. The week brought birthdays, bathrooms, and me paying for a woman to aggressively scrub my naked body. Without further ado, this week I:went to Fes! Fes is the second...

Chiang Mai – easily my favorite RY destination!

    0
If there’s one thing I’ve learned on Remote Year, it’s that some weeks are rough, but some weeks aren’t. And then some weeks you’re the only one who slips and falls on the so-called sticky waterfall. Hold on through the lows, people. Life looks up (and up and up!). This week started with a victory dance and ended with a jungle visit. I haven’t been...

Remote Year – a great social experiment.

A few days ago, we hit the 100 day milestone in the Remote Year program.  For us, just like most in our group, this was not only a small celebratory moment, but also an opportunity to reflect on our experience thus far with the program. While there are many aspects to discuss, we wanted to use this blog post to talk about the social element...

Week 27: Whoa-Oh, We’re Halfway There (AKA Serbtember)

    0
We hit the halfway mark this week. Six months down on this crazy adventure, six months to go. Time is playing tricks on me: it feels like I’ve been gone a lifetime, and also like it’s flying by. Each month seems shorter and shorter, saying goodbye to a new favorite place seemingly having just arrived. I’m used to this lifestyle by now – I think...

Last Time I’ll Celebrate New Year’s Eve

    0
Back in November, I was reached out to by Women’s Health Magazine, asking if I’d be interested in contributing to a piece about New Year’s kisses. I actively hate NYE and avoid it at all costs, usually spending it outside of the country on a family vacation (that’s not a complaint, don’t worry). Last year we were in Thailand, the year before was Berlin, before...
