The Bucket List.

A few once in a lifetime experiences Remotes can look forward to on this itinerary.

Temples, deserts, waterfalls and pyramids

Hike Machu Picchu, sleep under the stars in the Sahara, visit Colombia's highest waterfall and Mexico's pyramids - there is almost too much beauty on this program.

Taste Asia

Eat pho on tiny stools in Hanoi, get your pad thai fill in Chiang Mai, order your meal on Ipads in Kyoto, and embrace the collision of cultures in Kuala Lumpur.

Practice Your Spanish

Brush up on your language skills as you travel to four cities that primarily speak Spanish. With the help of the custom Remote Year Spanish Program, it won't be long before you're thinking in "holas" instead of "hellos".

Lisbon

Portugal

"Lisbon really is one of those places where you find unexpected delights round every corner – whether it’s an ancient, crumbling but beautiful building, a restaurant serving only mushrooms, an amazing view across the city or yet another wine bar. One thing I certainly wasn’t expecting was all the tiles (...) turning buildings into artworks in themselves, (...) The food in Lisbon is incredible – and impossible to pass up."

Split

Croatia

"Falling asleep the sounds of the waves. Spending a weekend on a boat. Watching the sunset change the colors of the sky, the water. "... "In Split, Remote Year has built their first co-working space, WIP, and it’s awesome. There’s amazing light, plenty of space, and it really feels like a true co-working space."

Prague

Czech Republic

"Prague is beautiful (...) the city is large, cosmopolitan, and distinctly European. I thought (...) that it would be small and manageable, but everywhere I turn there's a restaurant I want to try or a festival happening or another museum, beergarden, park, or church to explore. I also thought the food would be heavy and fried, so I've been surprised at the number of brooklyn style coffee shops, vegan restaurants, and Indian, and Vietnamese food places. The restaurant downstairs serves juices, acai bowl, and aloo gobi sandwiches, and the brewery down the street serves zucchini noodles and carrot chowder. Our workspace is a former embassy and feels regal. We have a library, a sprawling garden in the back, a yoga room, and a neighboring park. (...) Everywhere you turn -- local area, tourist area, historical area, run down area -- is beautiful and has a past."

Marrakesh

Morocco

"Morocco is a country as complex and beautiful and challenging as any other in the world, and it deserves to be thoroughly explored with an open mind. After almost 90 days on the road, and another 275ish left to go, Morocco has pushed me outside my cushy comfort zone in the most consistent of ways."

Hanoi

Vietnam

It's only been two days and I'm already in love with Asia and Hanoi. I'm digging the chaos, the humidity, the plastic chair dining establishments, the chilies so hot they make you cry, the daily juices and smoothies, the cheap massages, the random tropical rainstorms, the 23,000-1 exchange rate, the lightning storms as you sleep, and the fact that crossing the road is a near death experience.

Chiang Mai

Thailand

"From the countless night markets and street food stalls, to the fascinating and creative ladyboy cabaret shows, to the bajillion temples scattered throughout the city and the surrounding hills, there is a ton of stuff to discover."

Michael Constable, Remote Year Kaizen, 2017-2018

Kyoto

Japan

"I was told that Kyoto had Savannah/Charleston vibes and I totally didn’t believe it. I was completely wrong. (...) It’s a biking town with little streets, little buildings, little cafes, and a river winding along the side. There are crosswalks and traffic laws. It is littered with bistros and parks and temples, and surprisingly also high end fashion. "

Aashima Kapoor, Remote Year Kaizen, 2017-2018

Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia

"Our city managers explained this well our first week in KL – when you say culture, in KL this means FOOD. Jalan Alor is a road home to the coolest street food night market, which I lovingly call ‘food street.’ Here the food is ready to eat, cheap ($2 ish for a meal), and even though you might not know 100% what it is, it’s a ton of fun. The place becomes alive at night and stays open till who knows when, I’m in bed by then anyway #grandmastatus."

Santiago

Chile

It's a wonderful place for strolling and each neighborhood has its unique flavor and tone. Head out for the day to take in the museums, grand architecture, and pedestrian malls of the Centro, before an having an afternoon picnic in one of the gorgeous hillside parks that punctuate the city's landscape. Nightlife takes off in the sidewalk eateries, cafes, and beer halls of Barrios Brasil, Lastarria, and Bellavista, or head east to well-heeled neighborhoods like Providencia and Las Condes, where you'll find tiny restaurants and world-class hotels. With a growing economy, renovated art scene, and plenty of eccentricity to spare, Santiago is an old-guard city on the cusp of a modern-day renaissance.

Lima

Peru

Lima sits on the Peruvian coast and provides access to beaches and cliffs for the Pacific Ocean, but is also surrounded by desert and snowless mountains. It’s given us surfing each morning, workouts in parks, evenings in bars, clubs and raves, some of the best food in the world, the strongest and smoothest pisco sours, and a base with which at least one person flew to Cusco every week to hike Machu Picchu. We took weekend trips for hiking, glacial trekking, sand boarding, dune buggying, lagoon swimming, white water rafting, repelling and zip lining across rivers and between cliffs.

Medellín

Colombia

They don’t call Medellín the City of Eternal Spring for nothing – although, paradoxically, it hasn’t always been that way. (...) Spring is the season of new beginnings, and Medellín’s story of rebirth and transformation over the past 15 years or so is nothing short of miraculous. Once a hub of cocaine-fuelled crime, and ruled over with an iron fist (plus an arsenal of weapons) by Pablo Escobar – he of Narcos notoriety – now Colombia’s second city is a vibrant, cosmopolitan place with a real sense of restored pride. We were based in one of the nicest areas of the city (...), the leafy and coffee shop filled area of El Poblado (...) The city (well – half city, half jungle to be more accurate) sits in a deep valley, surrounded by steep mountains on both sides. Looking out from a rooftop, it appears as if the scenery is rising up to meet you, carrying the clouds along on top.

Mexico City

Mexico

"Today I’ve completed my first week in Mexico City. This place is electric. The local culture is palpable and the people are friendly. It’s also the first place I’ve been to this year where finding someone who speaks English is a challenge. On the plus side, I have a pretty solid foundation of the Spanish language and am loving the practice. The food is pretty tasty, too."

"Sure, I could travel abroad by myself for cheaper than Remote Year, but the value of the friendships I have made in Remote Year and the connections I have made through the Remote Year network at large enrich my experience in the moment, and will continue to do so for years to come.   I wouldn’t have it any other way."

"My Remote Year journey and my loving new family taught me how to take care of myself; how to be my own star player and biggest fan. They taught me to love myself; to trust myself and my talents. They helped build my self-esteem. They fortified the confidence, peace and strength within me and in others. I couldn’t have asked for a better year."

"Remote Year is a wily gang of people from all over the world, but despite our differences, they are among the most open minded and good natured people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing.  It’s certainly a huge part of what makes Remote Year so fun and worth it relative to organizing your own travel around the world, which anyone in theory could do."

"Remote Year took my entire life and turned it upside-down (in the best way). There’s no such thing as a “typical 9-to-5” here. Every day, I learned more about the world and its people. Every day brought something new: a conversation with a friendly local, bizarre cuisine, cozy workspace in a hidden cafe, skydiving trip before the workday started(!). If I could rewind and live the whole thing again, I’d do it in a heartbeat."

"Back in Jersey, I thought I was happy; I thought I was motivated. After just one week on Remote Year I thought, 'How the hell haven't I done this sooner? This is amazing.' I can't imagine going back to that life. I'm the happiest and most inspired I've ever been in my life."

"The professional growth I’ve experienced while on Remote Year and working remotely would not have been possible at a typical 9-to-5 production job. I have significantly improved and widened my skill set from client management, pitching proposals and scoping contracts to research, copywriting and design."
