Welcome to Lisbon, a city rich in history, beauty, and good vibes. The sun shines 290 days a year and the temperature rarely drops below 15 degrees Celsius, making it pleasant any time of the year. Here you will find a vibrant contrast of tradition and innovation that creates a unique atmosphere ready to charm you at every turn.
Split enjoys an iconic status amongst Croatians, known for its dramatic coastal mountains and turquoise Adriatic waters. Stroll down streets that have been lived-in for thousands of years and admire the balance between traditional and modern times. From picturesque sunsets to world-class beaches, Split invites you to live in the beauty of the moment and to catch a glimpse of the real Dalmatian life.
"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." — Aashima Kapoor, Remote Year Kaizen, 2017-2018
Then head to Cape Town, South Africa. This city offers a multicultural, complex, and contrasting city sure to capture a piece of your heart. Spectacular vistas and world-class beaches surround a city that enjoys delightful weather, year-round. Here you can find some of the friendliest people in Africa sharing their history, acclaimed wine region, spirit for adventure, and so much more.
Just a few of the once in a lifetime experiences Remotes can look forward to on this itinerary.
Visit the most western point on the European mainland and the most Southern part of Africa. Dive into the Adriatic, and the Atlantic in the northern and southern hemispheres, and see where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet.
From Afrikaans to Portuguese and Croatian to Czech. Four very different languages, music, cuisines, flora, fauna and cultures. This is the most diverse four month itinerary if you want to discover the world.
Innovate and make history - but don't forget history. Visit Robben Island where Mandela was imprisoned before he helped end Apartheid, the old town of Split is built around the 2000 year old Diocletian Palace, Czech is the birthground of Pilsner; the world's most widely consumed alcoholic drink, and it was the Portuguese Magellan who embarked on the first voyage to circumnavigate the globe.
