The 2018-2019 World Tour
Founder of Salt & Pepper 30s
A year of travel, learning, and spreading inspiration...
In June of 2018, I began the journey of a lifetime by joining the Denali itinerary with Remote Year. In the year following my departure I'll be living and working in a new city every month as part of a community of forty digital nomads. Below are the cities and countries I’ll be basing out of throughout this stretch. During my time in each city, I’ll be available for engagements such as keynotes and workshops, and during some of these stops I will be holding open-enrollment workshops for individuals*. That is, of course, when I'm not hiking, writing, or soaking up local experiences (and more importantly, local FOOD!) 😉.
If you're in one of these locations and you're interested in partnering, let's connect! I'd love to help you make an impact in your area. Even if your country isn’t on the list but you're located outside the United States, don't hesitate to reach out. Chances are that logistics will be simpler and more affordable if I were to join you during the tour than if I were to join you from North America. Fill out the form below if you want to chat about it!
I look forward to meeting you!

Stops on the Tour
My tour will kick off nestled between Spain's western border and the Atlantic ocean, in sunny Portugal. I'll be basing out of the coastal city of Lisbon, but this month will be full of European travel... Read More
Belgrade has one of the most important prehistoric cultures of Europe, as well as one of the most rooted in conflict. With old-world culture contrasting a vibrant nightlife and a thriving coffee/restaurant/bar scene, the Serbian capital is a cultured city on the move... Read More
I’m extra excited for this stop because, more than most other stops on this list Split residents are less interested in high culture than they are in sports and the outdoors. I’m looking forward to shooting hoops and playing some sand volleyball on one of the many beautiful beaches while I’m here!
Prague, Czech Republic
Rounding out the European leg of the tour is probably the most well-known of these cities—at least here in America: Prague. I find it only appropriate that I get to spend spend one month of a world tour in the historical capital of Bohemia... Read More
Next, it's off to Asia! First stop: Hanoi, Vietnam. Located in the Red River delta, Hanoi looks to be a vast change of scenery from my previous four months. This walk-friendly city is a welcome change of pace, and looks to be a place of personal recharge and refocus. Read More
Chiang Mai, Thailand
My sixth stop lands me in a land of misty mountains and colorful hill tribes. I’m personally looking forward to the lush green countryside and pristine rainforests dotted with churning waterfalls and peaceful country villages...
I’m really excited about this month's stop in Kyoto, Japan. I am certainly looking forward to diving into the arts, local culture, and geography in Kyoto; yet, if I’m honest, I’m most looking forward to... Read More
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Of all stops on this tour, Kuala Lumpur has held perhaps the most mystique in my mind due to my lack of familiarity with it. However, chances are that between its steel-clad skyscrapers, lush parks, mega-sized shopping malls, and lively nightspots, this city may feel more like home than the rest... Read More
It’s been four months on one continent; you know what that means—time to move on! Next stop: Lima, Peru, South America. I’m personally excited to explore pre-Columbian temples and break bread with some of the most forward-thinkers in South America while I'm here! Read More
Thank goodness the only stretch of my year where I’ll be in the same country for two months in a row is a country known for its coffee! Hopefully, I’ve timed it right and I can wake up to delicious coffee, catch lunch at one of their infamous foodie festivals, and then stroll outside the city to stargaze with a nice bottle of wine at night... Read More
Nestled on the floor of a narrow valley, its natural beauty makes a perfect setting for hiking, zip-lining and horseback riding. This bustling city by the jungle has earned the nickname “the City of Eternal Spring,” which I’d be lying if I said didn't sound appealing.
Mexico City, Mexico
Bringing my yearlong adventure to a close is the massive metropolis of Mexico City. With so much to do and so much ground to cover in this month, it’s easy to be optimistic about this being my trip's final stop... Read More
