Complexity and Wistfulness

Remote Year Saudade is for those who are longing for something that does not exist, carrying a nostalgia for something that hasn’t happened… yet. This journey will help you fill that void, ushering in a new chapter of your life filled with answers to the complex questions you’ve been asking yourself for quite some time - and perhaps giving you a few new ones to ponder. Though you’ll always carry a bit of that signature Portuguese wistfulness in your heart, your time on program will prove to be the world-shifting experience that you’ve been searching for.
