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...

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...

     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...

Arriving back in Valencia in the Old Town was a part of Valencia I have not been to. Last time I came here I only stayed and traversed through the newer area where the Arts and Science Center is. I love Spain and this past few weeks only proved to me why I feel the way I do. After staying for a few days in Valencia where the beaches, food and architecture is incredible, I headed to Barcelona for my third time. One of my other Remote travelers Colton, has a sister who lives in the Gothic quarter of Barcelona...

I am currently in Barcelona working on my sort of fixed computer. At this point in time I am unable to work on any of my photos because Lightroom and Photoshop just do not work on my broken/fixed for the 4th time this year Dell laptop. Keeping up with my photos is one thing that I have been proud of when it comes to my time management but this has been a total nightmare. Anyone who has experienced computer issues let alone traveling on the road for 9 months and two computers both new and both crashing a number of...

Belgrade is hot! Really hot! Everyday it's over 100 degrees. The city doesn't have as much architecture for me to shoot as I was expecting but it does have a few nice churches in Orthodox style painting and mosaics. Food has been fine and the night life is active also. There aren't many Meraki's here as most are traveling and in Croatia and we lost six people this week who dropped out of the program. We started with 77 people and supposedly we are now at only 56. There were a few people that surprised me that have left and...

I hit Prague running as I always do if the opportunity arises for me to see a city on arrival day. Of course I have been to Prague before, once back in the 1990's and also in 2015 for the "Signal Light Festival". This time is different for so many reasons. First of all I am traveling with a huge group of people who I know, I had a visitor from NY come to hang with me for a week, Stacey (I will talk about that shortly) and I am here in the summer when the weather is amazing. From...

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...

Back in 2005 I came to Buenos Aires in January when the weather was absolutely beautiful and warm. Now I am here and it is late fall/winter and it is chilly and I can not get over this damn cold. Myself and a number of other travelers from my group have all been sick since Bogota in February and we call it the "Meraki Cough" (Meraki is the name of our Group in Remote Year) and it just came back to haunt us again. This time around I have lots of time to walk around and explore a much larger...
