Remote Year Kuungana

Reunite and Connect

Consider Remote Year Kuungana your opportunity to create global relationships, to satisfy that inner feeling of restlessness, and to find your place in the world that truly feels like home. Although you’ll meet for the first time in Cape Town, the connection that you’ll feel with the Kuungana community will be undeniably strong. These are the people that will help you eat your way through South African braais and Spanish paellas, barter in the Moroccan medina and cheer you on as you jump from the legendary cliffs of Lisbon.

Valencia is home to an absolutely stunning cultural and architectural complex with an open-air oceanographic park, an opera house, planetarium and science museum.

Visit Robben Island

This UNESCO World Heritage in South Africa site is where Nelson Mandela was held captive for years before the fall of apartheid.

Cape Town

South Africa

"There is little reason to wonder why so many people are drawn to Cape Town. The city has almost everything to offer: beaches, food, mountains, wildlife, history, culture, wine, and adventure sports. Exploring Cape Town takes time; life seems to move a little slower in the Cape. The locals enjoy their city’s very laid-back attitude, and you’ll want to do the same. We stayed for two months and still hear about things that we missed. We’re already plotting our eventual return!"

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."

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."

Valencia

Spain

"Wandering commute through the grand Valencian buildings, orange and palm trees, and past bustling cafes filled with relaxed spaniards, being able to leave in the middle of the day to see the sights of a place I would normally set as a desktop background. Valencia is sunny and 75 degrees, relatively flat, and absolutely gorgeous. I’m living in Russafa, the ‘trendy’ neighborhood, filled with coffee shops and bars that advertise a plethora of 1 euro beers and plenty of diverse foods. It feels like Berlin, without all the dog shit on the sidewalks, mixed with the ease and charm of Florence or Rome."

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."

"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."
