Introducing Remote Year's latest itinerary: Denali.
One question that we get from people who are considering joining a work and travel program is, “Can one year really change my life?”
The truth is, it’s different for everyone.
Some might feel the shift immediately and overwhelmingly, while for others it will come gradually - almost imperceptible until time is taken to reflect on the year’s memories and accomplishments.
For everyone though, change is a necessity. We believe that consistent growth is the root of a meaningful, purposeful life and that to experience it at its fullest takes a conscious effort to seek out opportunities for development.
This could be the year that you take control of your life.
It’s finally time to shed your old routines, forget about your regrets and take the leap into living a life of intention and possibility. It’s time to make a choice today that will change all of your tomorrows.
If you’ve been waiting for a sign, this is it.
This feeling of dedication and determination runs through the veins of Remote Year Denali. In fact, the name Denali was chosen because of its connection to Alaskan Native peoples and their commitment to getting the highest peak in North America recognized as “Denali” instead of Mt. McKinley. It also represents the journey to reaching a pinnacle, of achievement, of growth and of pride.
Throughout your time as a Denali Remote, you’ll strive for your own peak - whatever it may be. As you make your home in twelve different cities around the world, you will remain open to new experiences, relationships and cultures and develop a deep level of understanding and respect for the world’s diversity. Over the course of twelve months, you’ll find that all it takes to achieve your dreams is focus, tenacity and the support of your Denali community.
During the European leg of your adventure, you’ll make Prague your home. Often seen as more of a “big village” than a city, Prague has a cozy atmosphere without losing any metropolitan amenities. Whether you’re interested in stunning architecture, a thriving art scene or a local beer garden (there are so many), you’ll find what you’re looking for in vibrant Prague.
As the imperial capital of Japan for over 1000 years, Kyoto will come as a shock to your system - in all the right ways. You’ll reach a new level of creativity as you delve into the complex contrasts that come with Kyoto: a fervent appreciation for tradition and nature mixes with cutting edge technology and a city on the cusp of every modern advancement. Give in to the novel tastes, smells and sights in Kyoto - it is a city unlike any other in the world.
Kuala Lumpur is another standout destination that will keep you guessing with its melting pot of cultures. As you settle into life in this extraordinarily dynamic city, you’ll quickly find out that at the center of it all lies its cuisine. In KL, there’s no wrong time to be hungry and you can bet that our City Team will make sure that you don’t miss any of the city’s hidden gems.
Finally, you’ll wrap up your year in Mexico City, a favorite of many Remotes for its heart and accessibility - in a way, Mexico City can feel like home no matter where you are from. When you aren’t making moves in the workspace, explore this metropolis’ many markets and spend an afternoon trying out a new taco spot (we promise, they’ll never ever get old).
So, could a year with Remote Year Denali really change your life? There’s only one way to find out.
Remote Year Denali kicks off on May 27, 2018 and runs through May 25, 2019.
