We all have that special place we seek inspiration from. Whether it’s a quiet stroll through the local park, an interesting museum, or the stunning valleys of your favourite national park, there are certain places that inspire you more than others.

Remote Year is combining work and travel, hoping to change the standard 9am-5pm work environment to show that great work can be done from anywhere — not necessarily an office. The concept is simple — Remote Year coordinates travel, sets up accommodations and brings together groups of inspiring professionals to travel, live, and work in different cities around the world. You can also experience how real locals live with Remote Year’s Local Experience Tracks, which are curated, authentic, local experiences designed specifically for your interests.

We felt this concept was refreshing, and decided to partner with Remote Year’s community to create a curated collection around the theme “Inspiring Places”, to visually show how great work can be done from anywhere.

We would love to see photos of the places you feel the most creative. Whether it’s in your local cafe, or somewhere halfway around the world, it’s important to visually highlight that your best work can also be done from outside an office.
