  • I’m back. 
    380 days and 22 countries later, back home in NYC. Murray Hill to be exact. And no boyfriend in sight. Not exactly how I envisioned the end of my Remote Year to go, but I guess it would have been a bit difficult if I had fallen madly in love ... read more

  • Allow me to reintroduce myself
    My name is Zo…ëHere’s a thought:It’s harder to reintroduce yourself to people who’ve known you than it is introduce yourself to people you’ve never met before.Imagine this: You walk into a room of 75 people, whom you pretty much know nothing about, but you all have one thing in common. You hold that ... read more

  • WHERE IN THE WORLD IS THAT SLORR EP. 14
    This is starting to feel like when Buffy the Vampire Slayer went through its whole series finale and then they were like, “JK, you get more, even though we killed her.”I’m not even going to apologize for that spoiler alert because the show ended (for the second time) in 2003, and ... read more

  • My Remote Year Marathon
    12 months, 19 countries.  A year of new experiences and constant stimulation.  A year that could never be replicated, and never fully comprehended by anyone outside of RY3 .  A year that probably seemed so luxurious on social media.  But, in reality, it was just as challenging as it was ... read more

  • Week 49: The Fam Takes Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City, Hoi An, Hue, Hanoi)
    We arrived in Ho Chi Minh City on Tet, an important holiday celebrating the Vietnamese New Year. The streets were full of festively-clad people, and many stores and restaurants were closed. Traffic was supposedly “slow,” but it still felt like a city full of scooters to us. Shortly after settling ... read more

    The last week of January brought my parents and my mom’s best friend, Galya, to Phnom Penh. My parents had never been to Asia, and I was sure they wouldn’t come because “Asia had no appeal for them.” This being my third trip to Southeast Asia, I spent some time ... read more

  • Week 47: A Visit to Sleepy Kampot (Cambodia)
    After last weekend’s bed bug (and sand fly, as we later realized) misery, I spent the majority of the week at home, in air conditioning, rubbing myself with hydrocortisone and popping Benadryl like candy. One deviation from this was a visit to Tiny Toones’ studio. Dancing with Tiny Toones We learned ... read more
