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...

The Vietnam Recap

Melbourne came in like a wrecking ball. It's been a struggle to recap February's adventures in Vietnam. So much to discuss, so little juice in the tank to crank out some pithy, creative word vomit for you (and by you, I mostly mean Gail and assorted family members). Here goes! Vietnam HIGHSSapaSapa is in the north of Vietnam, here: It's about a 5-hour drive from Hanoi and...

BYEEE EUROPE, NICE KNOWIN’ YA

And on November 5th we bid Europe farewell. Two continents down, one to go, and Remote Year saved the best for last.I enjoyed Europe, it's hard to not. But I think when I look back on Remote Year it will probably be my least favorite time of the year and least favorite continent. I liked Prague and am very happy I got to discover I'm...

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.

Day 159

Started the day with a spin class, worked my way through two different lovely cafes, finally landed at one of the workspaces and worked outside for as long as my computer battery allowed, discovered a very cute multi-level bookstore + cafe on the way home, and capped off the day with a rousing order of Indian food + Clueless in bed.

Eugene Ebron Co-owner, Heritage Rx HealthU.S.A  Why did you decide to come on Remote Year? It was time for a shake-up of the monotony of the day-to-day. A couple years ago I wrote down, “live & work abroad for 1 – 2 yrs.” My life in Chicago was on a wash, rinse and repeat cycle and I thrive on change. Through a bit of in-the-moment research...

An Ode To Pastel De Natas (Aka The Best Thing I’ve Ever Eaten)

Egg yolks have been my sworn enemy since 2003. 12-year-old me came home from Camp Mataponi 15-pounds heavier (blame it on the Chipwiches) and decided it would be fun to try the new “healthy eating plan” that my mom had become obsessed with over the summer (aka The South Beach Diet). I was swifty introduced to the egg white omelet, and 14 years later I’ve never...
