Week 43: Lima

A week in Cusco: a summary. City is a nice blend of Europe and Morocco and will give you the Peru you always imagine. P.S. This was my favorite week in Peru, LOVED the little mountain town and all its surrounding activities. Them facts: The flag of Cusco is a rainbow,...

Week 42: Lima

Lima La Gris (Lima The Gray). Saying exists for a reason. Not a whole lot of the sun in the city, but a few hauls out and a heck of an awesome day in the sand dunes made up for the lows in Lima. Cool stuff: Peru has 28 of the world’s 32 climates, leading to a lot of...

Week 41: Lima

Week two in Peru! Lima is beautiful, but I was feeling like I was trapped in the Miraflores/Barranco bubble. It is a nice bubble but a pretty normal one. This Saturday changed it; the day brought a trip to the district of San Juan de Lurigancho that showed me a...

Week 40: Lima

This week was a reset week. With a wild end to Santiago, I took ample time this week to chillllll. But, of course chilling in Remote Year still means doing lots of things…just less than usual J So far, Lima is great! Also, HAPPY HALLOWEEEEEN! We are living and working...

Week 39: Santiago

You know the expression ‘not all sunshine and rainbows’? Well coming off last weekend to what I arrived to, it could not be truer. Upon landing from Easter Island, we were greeted by the ghost town of Santiago on curfew. The streets were empty. You’d be arrested if...

Week 38: Santiago

One month in Chile is not enough! A week of learning Spanish and a weekend in one of the most Remote islands of the world! Skip ahead to Easter Island if you’re bored of Santiago, such a cool trip 🙂 Culture Notes Santiago has a lot of pedestrian friendly areas in the...

Week 37: Santiago

Week two in Santiago brought new acquaintances, a new (to me) religion, and lots of color on the coast! Also ample time with Pareans, and I am so grateful for them. Santiago is credit card friendly, so not a lot of cash needed. BUT they ask for your signature and...

Week 36: Santiago

Hola from Santiago! Super excited to be in South American for the first time, and maybe even more excited to be closer to EST. So far Chile is chilly, immediately regretted not bringing my sweaters from home BUT it’s spring time and only getting warmer. This month,...

Week 35: Kuala Lumpur (Boston)

Being back in Boston was hard. Reverse culture shock is real. 12 hour time adjustment also very real. Going from a world of independence to a rigid schedule was an adjustment. BUT, my best friend's wedding was 100% worth coming back for. An incredibly special weekend....

Week 34: Kuala Lumpur

This week in Malaysia was cut short because, MAMA I’M COMIN’ HOME! However, the last three days were super special, and it was way harder to say goodbye to Kuala Lumpur than I thought it would be. Despite being turned off by the cat-calling, staring men and...
