A year ago, a kind stranger swooped into my life and showed me the best skyline spot in Saigon. For the full story, tons of snazzy snaps, and details about travel safety, check out this latest blog post.Read More
Forget skydiving, or bungee jumping, Uber Moto is where it's at! In Vietnam, for as low as $1 you can ride the gnarliest thrill ride!Read More
If you visit Yellowstone, don't ignore the Grand Teton! Read on for the story of how I came face to face with a bear and survived!Read More
Yellowstone, not Jellystone. Definitely different than Yogi Bear's top place to picnic. The world's first National Park, A UNESCO World Heritage site, and one of the weirdest places I've seen on Earth. In a word: otherworldly!Read More
I bet you're probably thinking, "I didn't know there was a World Championship of Public Speaking?" Well, now you do! For me, this is up there with the Super Bowl and the NBA Finals.Read More
After a tumultuous day 1 in Yosemite, Jay and I joked about how we could top it on day 2. Yeaaa, we may have jinxed ourselves...
Day 2: Gettin' Down Glacier PointRead More
I’m almost embarrassed to admit I had never been to Joshua Tree, ~2 hours from LA. This rare jewel hidden deep in the desert is fascinating and freaky and hotter than hell (in June).Read More
I’ve been back in the US for ~2 months. The transition from international man of mystery to domestic couch surfer has been less than inspiring. Being back in Boston was great! But, LA has felt twilight zone-ish. So, I’m back on the road!Read More
Month 11 of Remote Year, and I’ve only published 5 months of snaps. It kills me, cuz I want to share them! But, pic processing takes time. So, New Year, new pic process.Read More
I’m in Europe now, and South America is in my rearview mirror. (Epic montage video in the making...) But, I never got a chance to blog about the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, which lives up to the hype in so many ways. The following post is an epic, 50+ picture detailed account of the 4 day trek.Read More
I am one of a few lucky Remotes to live 1 block away from our shared workspace. It’s called Incutex, and we have pretty much taken over the 5th floor. (See above pic: view from my apartment rooftop)
Incutex is a co-working space that houses startup companies and entrepreneurs. It’s a secure, modern facility with fairly solid wifi---the most important ingredient for remote working soup. The wifi is not perfect, but guess what? It wasn’t even close to perfect back in the United States!
Incutex has a sweet lounge at the end of the hall called the TechPub. This is where we have Remote Year meetings & special events like ping pong tournaments!
Overall, I dig the workspace here in Córdoba and hope we get similar accommodations in the other cities!
1 checked bag, 1 carry-on and 1 personal item.
For 1 year of travel.
It makes sense to leave behind any non essentials. But, somehow, it seemed essential to bring my brand new NutriBullet blender. Cousin Kevin could not stop clowning me! Wicked weird, but what can I say? I like starting my day off smooth.
The NutriBullet blender is not that big, and fit into my checked bag, no problem. And, once I got some fresh frutas & vegetales here in Córdoba, it was GAME ON! ‘Who’s weird now?’, I thought, as I’m sippin’ sweet smoothness.
But, suddenly, my smoothie smelled like…smoke? And, then I saw...sparks? Uh oh. Apparently, my NutriBullet is no bueno with the voltage here in Argentina. Guess I should have read question #10 on the NutriBullet FAQs page.
On the bright side, even though the blender fit into my checked bag---it was a bit heavy. I knew I needed to shed some lbs before the next flight, and I'm not about to get rid of essentials like Power Bars & Gummi Bears.
