Here are some insights of remotes who realized the 12 month program was the right length for them:
"When you decide to start traveling in the way I did, it shakes your whole being. (...) Well, that’s Remote Year for you; a year-long voyage that pushes you to your greatest self. (...)The same way nothing could have prepared me for what to expect in starting Remote Year, no one could have anticipated the new challenge in ending it. There is no right way to sum up an entire year of new experiences, new people and new strength. My last year brought about so many life changes and growth of which I am exceptionally proud."
Maggie Fogg - Remote Year Magellan 2016 - 2017
“[Remote Year] was — in a word — transformational. (...) My Remote Year experience slowly shifted my perspective. I was part of something incredible with 50 other adventurers. We were living a thousand lives in a mere 12 months, and we were leaning on each other throughout this epic and unifying journey.”
Matt Rudnitsky - Remote Year Darien 2016 - 2017
“I wanted community and travel and productivity. So I joined Remote Year, and had the best year of my life. (...) We developed a reflex of yes. For everything. Which led to an incredible, creative year. (...) That’s what I’ll leave Remote Year with. Excitement for infinite possibilities.”
