While you’re young, you should travel. You should take the time to see the world and taste the fullness of life. Spend an afternoon sitting in front of the Michelangelo. Walk the streets of Paris. Climb Kilimanjaro. Hike the Appalachian trail. See the Great Wall of China. Get your heart broken by the “killing fields” of Cambodia. Swim through the Great Barrier Reef. These are the moments that define the rest of your life; they’re the experiences that stick with you forever.
Traveling will change you like little else can. It will put you in places that will force you to care for issues that are bigger than you. You will begin to understand that the world is both very large and very small. You will have a newfound respect for pain and suffering, having seen that two-thirds of humanity struggle to simply get a meal each day. While you’re still young, get cultured. Get to know the world and the magnificent people that fill it. The world is a stunning place, full of outstanding works of art. See it.
Remote year is a one year program where you get paid to travel around the world with 100 interesting people while working remotely from the beach, pool or coffee shop.
Today I saw a talk about Monument Valley by Ustwo. More on that later, but it made me think of a game I really like, but almost forgotten. I think came out in the early 2000s and is called Samorost(1, 2 and 3). It has a lovely organic feel, and an exciting world to explore. It was created by Amantita design that also has made Machinarium and Botanicula.
I get my inspiration from many different sources, one is fashion and style blogs.
Here are some of my favorites:
