Meraki

  • 36 Seconds in (extended C√≥rdoba), Salta, and Buenos Aires
    I met a man through Remote Year. He's on another itinerary, Ikigai. When I say met, I mean that I'd met a bunch of his friends in Barranquilla, showed up in their pictures, and he messaged me soon after that. So we talked for two and a half months before deciding ... read more

  • Breaking up
    When we arrived with RY, we were encouraged to take the year to step out of our comfort zone, to say ‘YES’, to explore/adventure/experience. Did I step out of my comfort zone? YES! I jumped […] ... read more

  • Day 200
    I started trying to do this as one sentence and it was a disaster. In a timeline full of nostalgic posts, loving photos, long recaps of incredible memories and excitement for what’s to come… After a weekend of loving being on my own and feeling like I actually live in ... read more

  • Argentina
    Two months in Argentina with Remote Year was full of ups and downs. I likely wouldn’t have stayed in the area for a full two months if it hadn’t been for the group of amazing […] ... read more

  • Day 199
    I considered running in the morning to justify bringing my sneakers but instead did not do that at all and went to go get coffee and go to work, hustled for a few hours, grabbed a very late lunch before my train, got an iced latte and chocolate croissant to ... read more

  • Day 198
    Breakfast at a hidden cafe in a beautiful garden, an entire exhibit about screensavers which, due to my introverted and somewhat nerdy/computer-driven childhood in the 90s, had me filled to the brim with nostalgia, coffee with a new friend, a cool Rotterdam-only design store, the very old canal neighborhood that ... read more

  • Day 197
    I did a bike tour of the city today which allowed me to check off a number of destinations I was hoping to check off including famous architecture and cool food halls, but I also just got to bike through the city in a small group which made me feel ... read more

  • Day 196
    I spent the day popping in and out of stores, getting caught in the rain and then enjoying the sun, getting work done, making my way to dinner and then slowly meandering my way back to my airbnb, absolutely adoring the fact that there was no one to force me ... read more

  • Meraki in Buenos Aires, Argentina | Remote Year: June 2017
    Here's the video our program leader, Zoe Vos, put together for last month. She picked a great song that includes the lyric, "anywhere I go there you are" which is how I feel about my tramily. I arrived in Buenos Aires a couple of weeks late because I stayed behind in ... read more

  • 10 BUENOS AIRES CAFES
    Although Portenos (people from Buenos Aires) have long enjoyed leisurely afternoon cortados with friends or while reading a newspaper, finding a quality brew was near impossible just a few years ago. The norm has been an overly watered down, burnt bean coffee with a somewhat rancid and unpleasant taste.  At long ... read more

    I had coffee with a good friend who’s leaving Remote Year to do amazing things, I had cake to celebrate another delightful person’s birthday, and I remembered I was going to Rotterdam the next day so it was time to actually mentally and packing-wise prepare for that trip, about which ... read more

  • Day 193
    I crashed a track event to learn about the history of Communism in the Czech Republic and I am so glad I did because it is fascinating, especially when you hear about how the city was designed/used to help/hinder certain actions or ideologies and I also got to find out ... read more

  • KALINA’S BSAS FOOD GUIDE
    Meat, wine, meat, wine, pizza, meat - the typical food song of the Buenos Aires dining scene. Portenos (people from Buenos Aires) have traditionally been meat eaters, but a new generation of foodies is slowly emerging throughout the city, seeking unique worldly flavors, tasting menus, and veggie focused dishes. Here is ... read more
