Being open to new experiences is essential. Traveling the world offers the rare opportunity to see and experience the world in a way most people never will. Many of the benefits of the Remote Year experience stem from one's ability to say "Yes!" to new things. Remote Year is not a solo activity, so creating and maintaining productive and respectful relationships is a top priority. You're going to be meeting and traveling with new people, and your fellow travelers will quickly become some of your closest friends. Therefore, it's very important to be tolerant and have a generous spirit towards other people, whether they are your fellow travelers or local residents.
Finally, get ready to learn and challenge yourself. Your fellow travelers are going to be talented, passionate people. Be ready to share what you know, come ready to grow, and prepare to push yourself beyond your comfort zone.
