"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." —Cassie Matthias, Remote Year Magellan, 2016-2017

"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." — Paige Soucie, Remote Year Cousteau 2016-2017

Here you will find a vibrant contrast of tradition and innovation that creates a unique atmosphere ready to charm you at every turn.
"Buenos Aires, which I’ll admit right away might just have swept in at the eleventh hour and stolen the crown as my top city of the year. It may not have the relaxed beach-side vibe of Koh Phangan, the lush jungle of Medellin or the vibrant colours of Cusco – each of which gets ten out of ten for “wow factor” – but it’s the first place all year I can realistically see myself living long-term. Somehow, it’s got just the right combination of all the home comforts you need but enough exoticness to keep me intrigued. [...] I should perhaps have spent this post extolling the virtues of medialunas, mate, Malbec and the many coffee shops strung along Palermo’s tree-lined streets. But I just find this undercurrent of … real life, I guess … fascinating. As I said, BA has me intrigued." — Heather Lane, Remote Year Libertatem 2016-2017
“You fattened me up as we shared empanadas together during a lunch break. (...) Bottles of wine were emptied on farms and I went to more asados than I can count. You introduced me to all of your silly Argentinian friends. I started to fall in love. Còrdoba, You felt like a dream, but somehow you were so, so real.” —Zoe Bjornson, Remote Year Cousteau, 2016-2017

Medellín has recovered from one of the most challenging recent histories of any city in the world and is now an up-and-coming hub of creativity, lifestyle, and entrepreneurship.
"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." — Lee Wagner, Remote Year Ikigai, 2016-2017
