Remote Year Apartment Tour Medellin Colombia


So what is up YouTube! I’m in beautiful
Medellin Colombia. Today I’m going to give you a tour of my Remote Year
apartment here in Medellin. But first if this is your first time to this channel
my name is Kevin. I spent 20 years in the military. I retired I became a corporate
lawyer. I got tired of the nine-to-five and quit my job to travel full time. so
that’s what I do now, I travel full time making these videos.
Hopefully I inspire some people to do something similar or to go after
whatever their dream is. If that kind of content interests you please
subscribe below now further ado let’s tour the apartment so we’re staying in a
high-rise in the El Poblado neighborhood of Medellin. Our building is called San
Pedro de Alcântara. It’s a 20-story high-rise that’s in a gated community
that has 24-hour security door which is nice all right so let’s check out this
apartment as I mentioned before this apartment I got through the program I’m
traveling with called remote here if you’re interested in learning about
remote here I’ll put a link in the upper right-hand corner as part of remote year
you usually have roommates and in this apartment I have two roommates it’s a
three-bedroom three-bath apartment you can find a similar three-bedroom
three-bath apartment in this neighborhood for anywhere between 900
and 1800 dollars so that would be around three to six hundred a person if you had
two roommates like I do if you’re traveling solo you can find a studio in
this neighborhood for between 600 and a thousand but this is one of the fancier
neighborhoods so if you leave this neighborhood you can find apartments for
much cheaper just like in previous videos this apartment has a great
kitchen which goes to waste on me my roommates use it so at least it’s not
completely wasted but I always eat out and I don’t cook so it’s wasted on me we
also have this washer and we dry our clothes outside it’s always warm and
many so they drive pretty fast so the
decorations in this apartment are definitely pretty dated but in a
charming way I actually kind of dig it this living area is great we have a
dining room table and a traditional living room type seating area I’ll come
back to the balcony anymore the first of the three bedrooms is occupied by my
roommate Phil and you might remember him from the Collina hot springs video which
I’ll link up here in the upper right hand corner his room is just a basic
room there is a little walk-in closet all the rooms have walk-in closets in
this apartment this is the only room without its own bathroom but he gets a
bathroom right next to his room and nobody else uses that since the rest of
the rooms have their own bathroom this next room is mine it is not a master
suite but it has a bathroom so it’s kind of like a mini master suite my room has
the smallest window which is fine I also have this walk-in closet and a shout-out
to Unbound Merino if you haven’t seen my merino wool videos I’ll link my
playlists here I love merino wool here’s my bathroom it’s just a basic bathroom
it’s nicely setup that’s clean all the showers have these windows which is
great so you don’t steam up the bathroom and finally here’s the master suite this
room is my roommate jgies you’ll remember him from the hiking patagonia
and kayaking in Patagonia videos he’s also in some of the outtakes this room
is great it’s nicely setup he has a bigger walk-in closet which is pretty
awesome for him he has a lot more clothes than me since I’m a 1 back
traveler so I didn’t mind him getting this room his bathroom is much nicer
than the other bathrooms and updated it’s more modern
and he has a similar shower although a little bit more updated than mine in his
room as well so lastly we have this awesome balcony it’s huge
has a great view of the city of medine brought a hill overlooking the city of
metagame which is awesome it’s just pretty amazing and we get to sit out
here and have Columbian coffee every morning which is pretty awesome so I
plan on having a lot more Medellin Columbia content so if that type of

Great apartment with a wonderful view. How do you guys decide your living arrangements? Do you get to pick your roommates or is this predetermined by the sponsor company? How are the bedrooms allocated to the individuals?
