FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM @RICHARDSILVERPHOTO I am currently in Paros, Greece in a house run by Remote Year called a "Citizen House". This is where multiple Remote Year alumni get together outside of a RY program with other citizens (people who have completed a RY program become citizens) to hang out and party somewhere in the world. For Paros, the location is a three week getaway but I am only here for two of the three weeks. There are about 25 people in the Villas, three villas in total, on the same property, pretty close to what we would need on the...

FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM @RICHARDSILVERPHOTO So when we arrived in Lisbon on Saturday March 2nd it was Carnival there and we came in hot. About 20 of us went to this party at the Pestana Palace which had four massive rooms filled with people in masks and costumes and we were dressed for the occasion too. We didn't get home till 5:00AM. That was how Lisbon was , a rocking party town for all of us. OK it does have great food, really cool street art/graffiti, a good variety of architecture with a few special places I will show you in my...

FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM @RICHARDSILVERPHOTO When we last left off I was still in Cape Town for a few more days. It is unfortunate for me that I am so spoiled that I sort of lose out on the special feelings of being in a great city but do not get the feeling of it being more then the everyday to me. This is not the first time this has occurred and it is an experience that I have to recognize and try and open up more (sounds like a personal problem to me). Ok then...

FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM @RICHARDSILVERPHOTO I just got back from 9 days in Cuba which was amazing. This was my second time but last time I only went to Havana for four days, this time I went to see Havana, Ceinfuegos, Vinales and Trinidad. The trip was a tour that was with Cuban Adventures which I highly recommend for anyone thinking of heading there. The tour guide Yenni was so sweet, informative and just made the trip a wonderful experience. This was a last minute trip before my next trip with Remote Year which starts for me on December...

FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM @richardsilverphoto Going to New York as a visitor is kind of a difficult thing for me to wrap my head around. This was my 2nd time in NY visiting and staying at other peoples apt's, homes, couches and extra bedrooms. When I did it for July 4th week I stayed in Battery Park city at my friend Pat's apartment. I did appreciate all of the new completed construction, new shopping areas along with so many new restaurants. She also lives close to the World Trade Center site so I was able to see the finished Oculus built by...

     As I take my 7th train in 2.5 weeks to Cinque Terre from Genoa (Genova) I realize how much weather plays a role in my happiness as a traveler and I think as a person. I’ve had some really terrible weather recently and I was very depressed and upset all of the time and I feel it is because of the weather. This also happened earlier in the year in January when I was in Hanoi where it was so much colder that I thought it would be. I enjoyed Hanoi but I know it would have so...

Don't forget to Follow me on Instagram @richardsilverphoto Go to my website www.richardsilverphoto.com It is late January and most of the group has gone our separate ways for a while already. Many people went to Bali, why not, it's Bali and beautiful and easy to stay there. Some people went back to their respected homes, some went to Mexico, New Zealand and Europe. Me, I am in Vietnam for the month of January. A group of us discussed back in November heading to Vietnam in the north to start in Hanoi and then head down south, they all left, I committed to...

So where did we leave off? Oh yeah, I was heading to Bali to visit my friend Eddie and his wife in Densapar, Bali. He moved there about 5/6 years ago because he gave up on the BS of New York and wanted to live life easier, he has succeeded. He is 59 and his Balinese wife is just 23, yup, 23. They are happy and I was very glad to be able to stay with them for a few days and scooter around Bali (which is so damn busy). From Bali I went back to Kuala Lumpur to pick...

Sitting in my living room of our AirBnb in Seminyak, Bali I am mulling over what I have seen so far in just a few weeks. Having been to Asia a number of times already I had a good perspective on what each city might offer me to see but as usual, Asia surprises me again and again. Our first stop is Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where the food is just amazing and the local staff for Remote Year are some of the best people we have encountered as hosts for a city. They knew where to eat and play and...

I just got back from a four day side trip to Rio de Janeiro with some other Meraki's to catch some last chance sun and do a helicopter over Rio too. Buenos Aires and Argentina was cold so Rio was a great move and the right way to leave the continent. Also met up with a very sweet new friend from Bolivia which made the trip more special. As I boarded my plane for the end of my first half of my trip I can't help but wonder what the next six months has in store for me. South America...
