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

Take a mid-morning break with pan con tomate and an expresso, just like the Spaniards.

See the 'Big 5' running wild in Africa and sing the Lion King in your head (we did).

Try a Pilsner

Czech beer is world-renowned. Try a Pilsner from the source.

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."

Sofia

Bulgaria

"Sofia, Bulgaria deserves to be highlighted as an incredible place to live and visit. It is beautiful yet affordable, deliciously sweet yet savory, and has an all-around good vibe. It needs to have songs written about it and be on everyone’s bucket lists. But to make it kitschy which would take away from the very essence of Bulgaria’s capital, and I’m jealously guarding this place for myself. Stay away."

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!"

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."

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."
