Hello Family, Friends and random people who’ve stumbled on this blog because search engines brought you here because some key word like Animal Fart directed you.
I’m Pootee, Patrick, Pat or however you know me.
I’m traveling the world for a year and bunch of friends and fam have asked me to create a blog or video blog of my adventures so they can follow along. So here it is.
WHAT IS REMOTE YEAR?
I’m traveling the world with a program called Remote year.
Traveling to a different country/city every month for a year with a community of 75 people.
Each person has a different professional job that they can work remotely in.
Remote Year takes care of our place to stay, travel and a 24 hour business center that has great wifi. Here’s a link if you want to know more. http://www.remoteyear.com
WHERE I’M GOING?
Every month I go to a different country/city. Total of 11 countries and 12 cities in a year.
3 legs of the Trip: South America, Europe and Asia. I’ve never been to Asia so I’m super stoked to go.
March: Cordoba, Argentina
April: Buenos Aires, Argentina
May: La Paz, Bolivia
June: Cusco, Peru
July: Istanbul, Turkey
August: Prague, Czechoslovakia
September: Belgrade, Serbia
October: Cavtat, Croatia
November: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
December: Chang Mai, Thailand
January: Phnom Penh, Cambodia
February: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Friends and Family. Come visit me in one of these places. Let’s have an adventure.
People I don’t know that randomly came to this blog don’t come visit me unless you can prove that we’ve known each other in a former life where I was a Parakeet named Charlene and you were my owner John. And you always treated me good by feeding me crackers with low sodium.

REMOTE YEAR COMMUNITY
The community aspect of Remote Year really is what made me want to this. I’ve always loved traveling and I’ve always done trips. However the idea of doing this with 75 people is what really drew me to this. They said it’s 50% male and Female, ages ranging from 23 to 41, 60% Americans and 40% International that speak good english, and there’s two couples. All the jobs that people have are going to be a variety of different things. So it’s obvious that all these people are going to be interesting. It’s going to be amazing meeting and learning from all these people in the community.
WHY AM I DOING IT?
That is a stupid question. Because it’s awesome. At this point in my life. I’m single. No Kids. This is the time to do it. And it’s going to be great to get perspective. As many friends keep saying, “You are going to come back as a completely different person.” I think what they mean is that I’m going to come back with a body chiseled like Brad Pitt and adopt 3 baby seals named Arthur, Jezebel and Ramon. And we will have created a dance studio called, “Feel the Seal.” No one has done this yet so please don’t steal it.
