I made lifelong friends, and explored parts of the world I only had dreamed about.
The experience I had with Remote Year was magical. I wasn't sure what to expect when I signed up, but I knew that I wanted to travel with like minded people. My 1-month Trip flew by, I made lifelong friends, and explored parts of the world I only had dreamed about.Karelle K.
