Rolling Remote

Rolling remote with Becca Siegel

Becca is one half of HalfHalfTravel (we profiled the other half, here), a travel blog filled with guides, advice, and the kind of travel photos that make you wonder what you’re doing sitting at a desk. When she’s not running the blog, Becca is a lifestyle photographer specializing in proposals, engagements, and fashion.

Becca checked in with Remoter from Mexico City where she’s traveling with Remote Year. Below she shares the gear that allows her to travel light when she’s hopping around the globe.
