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 Here I am back in Cape Town after hitting Namibia for 10 days. It feels like such a long time since I wrote my last post and in a way it has been. New Years started in Cape Town on a resort with about 20 of my new Remote Year family members of Kuungana, it was so much damn fun. This is my second time to Cape Town and I realized I did not get a real feel for the city last time, it was just too short of a time, now I understand it better. More...

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 This was my second time to Bolivia, last time I went was in 2013. I love Bolivia's landscape of mountains and colorful scenery. Have you been to Bolivia? The highest elevation capital city in the world is La Paz at an average of 12,000 feet. Are you familiar with Altitude Sickness? Have you ever experienced it? Well if you are apt to experience it or if you have ever had it Bolivia is a great place for it. This time I flew into Cochabamba at a bit over 8,400 feet so I was only slightly light on...

FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM @richardsilverphoto I plan on seeing some of my friends this summer who I traveled with last year with Remote Year. Last week I went to see my friend Tim in Austin for five days. It was my first time to Austin, really Texas, which has such a reputation for being a cool place to hang and eat and I can agree. Most of the people I met were in their 20's and 30's, I did feel a bit old there (sort of like my trip with Remote Year). I actually did not use my camera during this...

After traveling for 1.5 years I am finally back home in Florida. I was supposed to be in South America until May 21st but I decided to cut my trip short for some personal reasons. My original travel plans from London were first to Bolivia then to Sao Paulo. Bolivia was to meet a woman that I met in Argentina in May of 2017 (we also traveled together for 17 days through southeast Asia in November) but she is now in a serious relationship so there was no reason for me to go there. Sao Paulo was to visit my...

Having finished traveling through Southeast Asia in the warm weather we are all now in Kyoto in the winter. (PS-I am not in Bangkok like my Map says-apparently it is broken as I am in Kyoto) This is our month 12, the last month we are all traveling together and there are so many gatherings we have done and are still doing. It is Christmas Day here in Kyoto and we had a huge dinner with 40 of us yesterday for Christmas Eve. Last night we stayed in a hostel for the night so we could all be together for...

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...
