There are a lot of lists that tell you what to pack for Remote Year. And while I think they can be beneficial, I created a top ten list of the items I use the most to keep me organized and comfortable. If you are looking for my carry-on essentials, please read this post for details!
The first month of the Remote Year experience begins in Mexico City. Mexico City or CDMX is the 5th largest city in the world, only outnumbered by Tokyo, NYC, Sao Paulo, and Seoul. I am living and working in quirky Condesa: one of Mexico City’s coolest hangouts and a neighborhood that is well worth the time to explore during any visit to here. It is filled with leafy streets and loads of Art Deco and Art Nouveau architecture.”Condesa” means “countess” and it is named after María Magdalena Dávalos de Bracamontes y Orozco, the Countess of Miravalle, whose lands stretched from what is now Colonia Roma to Tacubaya.
Meraki is a word that modern Greeks often use to describe doing something with soul, creativity, or love — when you put “something of yourself” into what you’re doing, whatever it may be. With that being said, I am beyond excited to head out in 2017 with Remote Year Meraki spending each month traveling to and living in 12 different cities, within 10 countries, spanning 3 continents. An enormous thank you to my boss and coworkers for their support of me telecommuting for the next year!
Remote Year is a start-up that organizes groups of 75 professionals to travel and work in 12 cities for 12 months. Founded two years ago, Remote Year adds community and infrastructure to “digital nomadism,” a growing trend among millennials who work from their laptops in foreign locations.
