The Bucket List

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

Discover four continents - and their cuisine

Be a true explorer and discover four continents; eat Pho in Vietnam, tajine in Marrakech, pastel de nata in Lisbon, ceviche in Lima and taco's in Mexico City

See it all, taste even more.

Cook dinner with Portuguese grandma's, meet members from a Karen tribe in Thailand, and have a typical Mexican Sunday at the trajineras, before the sun goes down.

Temples, deserts, and mountains.. oh my!

Hike Machu Pichu, sleep under the stars in the Sahara, visit Colombia's highest waterfall and Argentinia's sierras - there is almost too much natural beauty in this program

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."

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."

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.

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."

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."

Aashima Kapoor, Remote Year Kaizen, 2017-2018

Belgrade

Serbia

"When I first saw Belgrade, Serbia on our itinerary for Remote Year, I had no idea what to expect. In the month leading up to our stay there, I started hearing rumblings from our RY2 friends that we were in for a treat. They couldn’t have been more right. (...) The revitalization of the city, welcoming nature of the people and the economic growth makes me believe that Belgrade will absolutely be a hotspot for travelers in the years to come."

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."

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.

Bogotá

Colombia

"During my month of living in Bogotá, a few things have stood out as highlights. I’ve ridden bikes for miles on Ciclova Sundays (when major roads are closed to bicycle and pedestrian-only traffic), run in the parks side by side with locals, worked out on the free gym equipment with people of all ages (including gymnasts performing incredible stunts on the pull-up bars), and nearly every morning have waved to the swarms of dog walkers in my neighborhood park. In addition to the outdoor lifestyle (despite the rain), other perks include quite possibly the best tap water in the world (sorry, New York City), and delicious street food. But above all, the people are incredibly welcoming."

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."

See what Remotes are saying about us.

"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."
