For my friend, Kevin Miller

    0
This morning, I was hit with heart breaking news. A friend of mine perished in a traffic accident last night. We had just spoken in the morning. He and I hadn’t spoken in months, outside of some exchanges on Facebook. The call from him came out of the blue. He was looking to buy a MacBook and, as the resident Apple evangelist in our crew,...

Bogotá

    0
Bogota wasn’t my favorite place I have visited but the city managers that we had were some of the best. Cata and Luis completely made our experience in Bogota epic. I was fortunate to go on a trip with some of my good friends Wilhelmus and Anis to Cartagena and Santa Marta for a few weeks and it was one of the best side trips...

The good side of Spain

    0
Everyone wants to go to Spain. It was the country I was most excited to visit when I started Remote Year. It has great food, good weather and a long coastline stretching the Mediterranean. Its had beautiful islands off its Eastern Coast and has many great cities and destinations throughout the entire country. I spent the month of August living in Valencia and had the...

Adios Córdoba

    0
What.a.month.  I’m en route to Buenos Aires for cuidad numero dos,  and am not sure how the time is flying by this quickly. For a city that I had never heard of before Remote Year, I loved Córdoba.  We described it as “butterflies and rainbows” in South America.  It’s a hidden gem, and it will hold a special place in mi corazon forever. Córdoba is a small city...

How Excited Are You?!

    0
Welcome to the question I’ve been receiving non-stop since March 3rd (the day I got my offer to join Remote Year on their Earhart Program). So am I excited? Of course I am. But the main emotion I have at this moment: this is all so surreal. Is this really happening? Am I actually leaving for a year? Let me break it down for you: I...

Climbing Mount Huayna Potosi

    0
Snap from the drive to the mountain. Last week, I changed my Facebook cover image to a sunset snap of Huayna Potosi (in the Andes), ~25km from La Paz, ~6,088 meters, aka 19,975 feet.  What I didn’t mention is that I was mentally preparing to climb to the top of it.  I didn’t want to say anything because I’m no mountain climber.  I’ve never used...

Say ‘I Love You’ the Wrong Way and I’ll Kill You

“ ‘Hello, good to see you.’This sentence can be said with the energy of anger, sweetness, sexiness, hatefulness, or coyness.You can speak with any energetic quality, pervading the concert hall of your experience. The bodies in this hall — yours and others’ — are resonated by the energy you offer.Choose the energy of your speech like a musician selecting a song from his or her repertoire, for the sake of opening the...

Last weekend I said farewell to Vietnam, SE Asia, and all of RY3 aka Cousteau.You’re going to get a more reflective post once I’ve had the time to process exactly WTF just happened to me, but for now, let me walk you through the rest of my time in a country I really never...

Lost in Translation

    0
My memories of Paris involve dancing.  Sitting in a dark jazz club in the heart of Paris, an assembly of 17 and 18 year old inexperienced voyeurs were blooming, facing raw culture in the eye, and feeling the elements of gypsy jazz in their souls.  A coming of age story of sorts.The 18 year old version of me for the first time wasn’t looking around...

51: Angela Rose Sandall-ton

    0
Right: Still Jess Left: Angela Have you ever met a person who makes your life better, just by being part of it? I knew Angela and I were going to be friends before I met her. In our weird little pre-Remote Year Facebook frenzy, it was obvious that we were alike. When we did finally meet, it became increasingly clear that we're not only alike, but in...
