Walking backward

    0
My first two days in Montevideo, my internal monologue was a kind of a jerk. I’d made it to Uruguay with all of my luggage still in tow, the city was beautiful, the people were amazing. I was having so much fun. But, in the moments when I was alone in my hotel room or struggling to make myself focus in our new coworking space,...

I don’t know about you, but paying that much to get sweaty in something seems insane to me, especially when you can...

So, I finally started a blog

    0
When I was at home and telling people about Remote Year, one of the first questions they asked was, “are you going to write a blog?” I kept giving a non-chalant – “oh yeah, I’m sure I’ll set up a blog at some point…” …and I kept meaning to set one up, but it got lost in the shuffle of other preparations. Now that I’m...

Initial Impressions

    0
Sunset in Montevideo After a lot of anticipation, planning, anxiety, packing, hugs and tears (my mom's not mine), I arrived in Montevideo, Uruguay on Sunday afternoon. I flew out of D.C. on Saturday night and caught a connecting flight from Miami to Montevideo. There were at least 15 other Remotes on my flight and I met a few of them standing in line to board...

We're in Montevideo!via GIPHYIt's pretty great. The weather is nice, the people are nicer, and according to canidrinkthewater.org, the answer is yes, the water is fine. We've only been in the city for a few days-- and there are 75 new names to remember-- but we're already full on at the office and quickly integrating with the local community.  Our office for the month -...

Ometepe, Nicaragua

    0
Ometepe was not my favorite place. A quiet island on a very large lake, this area is tropical and has interesting wildlife, but not much culture or liveliness to it. I would come back only with a group or for a specific activity. I'm also jaded from seeing too many lakes and volcanoes recently ;). To reduce the amount of concrete, this school was built...

Sunset Hill, Riegrovy Sady Park: Prague

    0
Prague likes to party!  Inside, or out, there are plenty of places to congregate with the community and enjoy the summertime vibes.  One of the best places to watch the sunset over the iconic Prague Castle was right near my apartment: Riegrovy Sady Park, aka Sunset Hill.  It’s a big park, with several beer gardens.  (FYI, open container alcohol is legal in Prague)  Every afternoon and...

Lima, Peru

Lima is the 2nd driest metropolitan city in the world and is showcased by the cliffs that are crumbling down into the ocean below.  With high rises at the top it is a huge contrast.  Lima has the most stunning views of the ocean and is a paradise for surfers.  Unfortunately I had altitude sickness […]

On sleeping anywhere

Your sleep schedule is so out of whack on this program that I've found I can legit sleep anywhere. For example, this chair at the Singapore airport that I slept in, next to my friend Michelle, while on a layover to get back to KL. The chair was part of some "experience zone" and I listened to the same song for like 3 hours. I woke...
