The coolest, most creative, easiest, and safest way to travel
The coolest, most creative, easiest, and safest way to travel. Having local City Managers in each location was an amazing way to immerse ourselves authentically, and the people you meet during your travels are kind, resourceful, respectful, adventurous, and just plain fun! I would recommend Remote Year 10,000 times over.Emile
