If there’s one rule that I will always live by:

It’s that you should do the things that scare you.

So on July 25th, I’ll be leaving my lovely life here in Vancouver, spending a week at home with my family and then moving to Portugal August 1st to spend my 29th year travelling with the Remote Year.

Over the next twelve months I’ll be living in a different city every month, traveling with 75 other digital nomads from around the world; spending the first 6 months in Europe and the last 6 months in South America.
