Joining Remote Year is the biggest life decisions that many of our participants have ever made. We know that uprooting your entire life to travel the world with a group of strangers is not only a difficult choice, but flat out terrifying. We see this fear in the hundreds of applicants we speak to every day and we want to help ease those fears by addressing them head on.

We chatted with current remotes across our seven programs about their tipping point: that pivotal moment where they decided to officially commit to their new lives as digital nomads. We will explore their internal processes of leaving everything familiar behind to building an entirely new life with us on the road.
