The T-T-T-T-Taj Mahal

For the past four centuries, Indian tourism has had a shadow cast over it by one building and four syllables;TheTajMa--halFirst thing to say, it was 112 degrees. Yes, one hundred and fuckin twelve degrees...And that was in Celsius. To tell you the truth, I felt like overall it looked more impressive from a distance than up close.It looked much, much smaller when I got up...

A visit to an Indian carnival….kind of

    0
I had the privelege? of visiting what one might call a carnival.....an Indian carnival. They had all the usual carnival activities that you would expect, a ferris wheel, a merry-go-round, etc. except they were all miniature sized and were hand operated. A man stood there and pushed the "ferris wheel" around. Wow, what a thrill.Then of course, we had the woman dancing with giant pots...

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...

Time is running out

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...

In memory of Tom Brady (Is that pessimistic?)

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...

Week 6 Recap: In-FES-tation

    0
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!

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.

    0
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

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...

“What a disgraceful lapse! Nothing added to my disquisition, & life allowed to waste like a tap left running. Eleven days weeks unrecorded.” – Virginia Woolf I’m standing on a board that is just a little wider than my own shoulders. “Just relax. Focus.”, I keep telling myself, acutely aware of how easy this looked earlier, but isn’t. I notice I’m still wearing my watch, so a...

50 Shades of Blue • Visiting Chefchaouen, Morocco

    0
Nestled among the Rif Mountains in northern Morocco, Chefchaouen, also known as 'The Blue Pearl,' may easily be one of Africa's best kept secrets. Cloaked in varying shades of blue, this city is a charming retreat from the hustle and bustle of bigger Moroccan cities. Legend has it that the city was painted blue to ward off mosquitos, but the jury's still out on that...
