Allow me to introduce…

Over the past six months, I’ve been hard at work on a project I’ve been keeping under wraps. It’s an idea I played with about year ago, and I finally took the plunge! I can’t believe the time has come… As you know, I left my big, corporate, NYC life behind just over two years…

A Letter To My 90 Day Self

A few weeks ago, I thought I was dealing well with the current state of the world. Jump to one week ago, and I was not. In such turbulent times, it’s like being on a roller coaster with waves of emotion surprising you at every dip and turn. Last week was my complete loop-de-loop. The…

Where in the World…

I know, I know…I’ve really been slacking on all my exciting travel blogs! But writing these posts is much harder than you might think…I want to give you the full, authentic picture. The good, the bad, and the ugly. The good is easy, but when it comes to the bad and the ugly…it’s really difficult…

The Power of Values

The end of 2019 had me reaching out to Ellyn, my life coach, asking for help. I felt lost, like I had allowed my identity to be overtaken by work, and I had so many ideas in my head that I didn’t know where to start or how to prioritize. Rewind! The end of 2018…

Dream Big and Dare to Fail

It’s been a long time since I’ve published a post, but behind the blog, there is a lot of writing that happens. I haven’t divulged much about my journaling, but if you’ve listened to my guest appearances on the Take Back Your Damn Life or Nomad on Fire podcasts, you’ve heard me speak of the…

Fjaka to Pura Vida: One Year Later

One year ago, I set off into an unknown that introduced me to the meaning of fjaka as I arrived in Croatia, the start of my Remote Year journey. Today, pura vida is on my mind as I write this post from the Costa Rican airport. Fjaka: a relaxed state of body and mind, the…

Do You Even Have a Real Job?

While traveling, many people have asked if I ever work, how I can possibly get all my work done, and if I even have a real job. Short answers: always, discipline and yes! Living and working as a digital nomad is a lifestyle choice, one that isn’t right for everyone. It’s hard and exhausting, but…

The Key to My Heart

I know it’s been a while, but welcome back to Prague in June! What better way to kick off week two than with our first visit to the Žižkostel Community Center for positive impact. Žižkostel is a long-standing partner with Remote Year in Prague, providing for the Roma community & those generally in need with…

New Year, New You?

2019 is upon us, a time to reflect on 2018 and set resolutions for the new year. I’ve seen it countless times in the past few days – new year, new you! But why should there be a new me? I don’t want this year to be about changing who I am, but rather embracing…
