One of the first questions I am often asked when talking about Remote Year is "what kind of jobs do these people have that lets them to travel for a year?" As expected, many are from creative fields such as design, writing, and development, but honestly, we're a very diverse group from all walks of life. Not only do we have wildly different careers, but we also originate from wildly different countries. There is an infographic below that goes into more detail.
We're the third group of "Remotes" to embark on this journey, and our cohort was named after Jacques Cousteau, a world-famous French ocean explorer and engineer, among many other things. He also looks strikingly similar to my grandfather from my mother's side.
"When one man, for whatever reason, has the opportunity to lead an extraordinary life, he has no right to keep it to himself."
