Travis and I are sitting on the floor of one of the oldest libraries we’ve been in, drinking coffee and chatting about what it’s like to live your dream life.
Travel and adventure have always been a huge part of Travis’ life. He lived the Caribbean, worked as a kayak guide in Alaska, worked at world’s largest dragon fruit farm in Hawaii and ended up joining Remote Year. Remote year is a company allowing you to travel the wold for a year spending each month in a different city while working and living with 70 other professionals.
Travis joined the company when it only had seven employees (now they are more than 150). He was flown to Ko Pha-Ngan for an interview, then to Japan for his training and is been having the best job in the world for the last two years. Travis is Remote Year's Manager of Community Development - he takes care of community dynamics and makes sure people have the best possible experience.
