Thanks to the organization Remote Year, I've been offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel the world for a full year while working remotely with my current companies here in the States.
Starting in March, I'll be working remotely from Argentina, and then Bolivia, Peru, and 8 other countries throughout South America, Europe and Asia. There will be a cohort of 75 from 15 different countries, working and traveling side by side, learning from each other and the cultures we're ingrained in. Over the course of the year we will spend a month a piece in 12 different cities spanning 11 countries before returning home.
The amount of support from my team members at Hopscratch and Truce has been overwhelming, and even brought me to tears multiple times. With no hesitation at all, I've received nothing but encouragement. Words can't express the level of gratitude and love I have for all of them. I couldn't do this trip without them, and one team member is actually traveling in the same cohort. Naturally there will be challenges that arise from not sharing an office together, but we are in it for the long haul and we'll make it work. They have showed me what it truly means to put love first.
While I'm sure it will be an anxious and equally exciting good bye, I know the year is going to fly by and I'll be back in the States before I know it. In the meantime, if you're looking to escape the barrage of racist Trump comments for a bit, you have a place to stay. Below is where you'll be able to find us!
