    or, The Benefits of Leaning InLast month at the Nation House event I went to, I asked a couple of RY Citizens (Remotes who have already finished their RY) what their biggest piece of advice to someone in Month 4 would be.They both agreed on the answer which essentially boils down to…Don’t let ... read more

    This one is going to be short, guys. And that’s a good thing. I arrived in Sofia early Tuesday morning and IMMEDIATELY felt more relaxed. It’s amazing how certain cities will just do that to you (I’m looking at you, Prague). I took this week to decompress from my last ... read more

  • Weeks 12 & 13
    The past week has been an incredible experience- I knew Morocco was beautiful and crazy and hectic and hot, but I truly didn’t even know the half of it. The country is GORGEOUS. Like eye opening, stunning, don’t-know-what-to-do-with-yourself gorgeous. From mountains, gorges, deserts, and valleys filled with luscious forests, to ... read more

    The end of last week and the beginning of this one were completely and totally insane. Between the month-long festivals in Lisbon coming to their crescendo and Ilana/Sonia coming to visit, I kissed any chance at sticking to/developing a routine goodbye.
