Travel 2018

A Look Back at 2017 + Big Plans for 2018

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Yes, I know we’re halfway through January already {gasp!} BUT it’s still the newest part of the New Year, right?? I’m gonna ride the New Year’s train a little longer because I really love all the reflection posts and articles that come out right around now– anyone with a blog or website […]

wifi love story

Staying Connected: A WiFi Love Story

As a remote worker, there’s nothing more simple and pure than the love for a strong WiFi signal. Afterall, this is how work gets done, video conferences attended, and emails sent to clients and colleagues across the globe. When there’s WiFi insecurity– power outages; no signal on the 6-hour train or bus ride when there’s supposed to […]

5 Ways to Enjoy Dublin like a Local

Guest Post written by: Kate Wilson Europe’s great cities seem to be on just about every travel list in the world, and with good reason. Broadly speaking they’re beautiful, historic, and packed with vibrant culture and modern attractions alike. Even so, most guides and lists gloss over the details and focus on major sightseeing opportunities, famous […]

Arctic Thaw: Climate Change and Permafrost

Arctic Thaw: Climate Change and Permafrost may seem like a heavy topic to be writing about, given how I’m usually sharing travel and remote work tips here on the blog. But this isn’t a random blog post, as I’ve started a collaboration with OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) to raise awareness and bring […]

Top Summer Hits in Spanish

Right now you might be wondering why I would be posting the Top Summer Hits in Spanish when clearly it’s November and cold and definitely not summer.   Well, I felt the time has arrived that we need a little throwback hotness in our lives, now that the holiday season is upon us and the […]

A Digital Nomad’s Digital Bible

Earlier this year (2017) I was asked by AND CO to contribute to their ambitious digital project: a digital nomad’s digital bible, aptly called ANYWHERE. I wrote the last chapter, How to Be a Student of the World.       About the book ANYWHERE is written for freelancers, solopreneurs and remote workers who are drawn to […]

Home is.

I’ve recently returned state-side after a year of traveling abroad… and I feel restless. Needy. Nostalgic. I realize that I haven’t written a blog post in 8 months (!!!) and that’s changing now. Like, right. now. I believe I stopped writing when our travels took us to Bosnia+ Herzegovina. It was a wickedly cold and […]

Make Love Not War

Today is January 11, 2017. Day 11 of my self-inflicted 31 days of posting in January. Today we attempted again to go to the candy cane cake building aka the National Library, but none of the doors were open. I pressed my face up against the windows and knocked as loud as I could, hoping […]

The Endless Cold

Today is January 10th, 2017 and I missed yesterday of my self-inflicted 31 posts in January. But don’t fear, not much happened in the realm of blog worthy events on January 9th. I walked down the hill to the little market and picked up some food for dinner. It was snowing and freezing cold, and […]

The Cold Makes You Feel Alive, In A Dying Sort Of Way

Today is January 8th, 2017, Day 8 of my self-inflicted 31 days of posting in January. Today, we ventured out into The Old Town… but not before 1pm. We slept in and needed it. Kind of crappy transportation can make you tired and sore, especially 9 hours of it. The heating in our apartment didn’t […]
