    Thank for you mentioning Pangea196 in your Remote Year Alternatives… it can even be as little as $1500/month if you choose the 12 month program! I am on it and it’s been wonderful so far. Our accommodations and co-working spaces have greatly exceeded my expectations! If anyone has any questions about joining Pangea196… feel free to reach out to me! My email:

    • ML Mazzara

      I am interested in Pangea196 and sent you a personal email this AM. Thanks!

    No Desk Project ( is a new program and a great Remote Year alternative! It’s a three month experience that offers everything Remote Year does, but with a focus on wellness through three articulated modules (for each country): yoga and meditation, fitness and nutrition, and volunteer work. So No Deskers actually travel with their own entourage of wellness experts that guide them through these experiences–and track personal progress. The volunteering module comes last because one needs to put their own metaphorical oxygen mask of wellness on before helping others 😉 It would be a great addition to your list!
