Break Out Your Passports: We’re Visiting Mods Around the World
We’ve long said “Mods, not cubes.” Great workers aren’t trapped away in cubicles. That’s why we’re pioneers of the remote work model.
Of the many benefits that come from that flexible, adaptable working environment is the fact that we have Mods all around the world. On all continents except Antarctica.
Here on the blog, we’ve previously shared a glimpse into the lives of our International Mods. Since people from all different regions are continually joining ModSquad, we asked a few folks to give us a peek into their homelands. So grab your virtual passport and join us on a trip around the world.
Wendy L., Sri Lanka
“I was born in Belgium, but 10 years ago I moved to Sri Lanka (below). I love this country because it’s so diverse. It has a rich history and culture, amazing landscapes, and beautiful beaches. The people are so friendly and helpful. Both on and off road you’ll find animals from small lizards to elephants. When I walk into a garden, there’s something growing on every tree, from fruits and nuts to herbal spices.”
Mo R., Egypt
“I live in Dahab, near the Blue Hole, an amazing 120-meter-deep sinkhole that attracts divers from all over the world. The marine life there is just extraordinary.”
Zuri S., Costa Rica
“Costa Rica (right) may be a very small country, but the nature and kindness that we have in abundance is undeniably larger than our territory. We live by the saying pura vida, which translates to “pure life.” This motto reminds us to live life to the fullest. In Costa Rica, you can find any landscape you desire, from mountains to beaches.”
Boutaina J., Morocco
“We’re one of the best destinations in North Africa. Think about anything and you’ll find it in Morocco. We have delicious food, from traditional to contemporary, including couscous, tajine, mint tea, msemen, dates, and more! We have two coasts, on the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. Each has its own unique view! And don’t forget our breathtaking waterfalls and valleys, or even the Sahara in the south of the country.”
Marcelo G., Brazil
“I think Brazil (below) is one of the most amazing countries in the world. From our welcoming and friendly culture to the food to football, you can’t get better than this! Feast on Brazilian BBQ while listening to pagoda or samba. Attend endless festivals, including the world famous Carnival of Brazil. You can even take in a beach day if you like. Brazil has it all!”
Nizar F., Indonesia
“As an equatorial country, Indonesia (below) has only two seasons: dry and rainy. (I call them hot and super hot.) The largest archipelago in the world, Indonesia lies within the Pacific Ring of Fire region. It consists of 17,508 islands, about 6,000 of which are inhabited by a diverse population that includes Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch, Japanese, Indian, Chinese, and Arab. As a result, Indonesian cuisine has complex flavors. The influence of Arabia, India, China, and a little bit of western countries informs the taste of Indonesian dishes: spicy and hot, savory, salty, sour, sweet, and sometimes bitter. Rice is the staple of Indonesian cuisine. Most Indonesians eat rice for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There’s an Indonesian saying: ‘It’s not eating until we have rice.’”
With that, we wrap up our world tour! It’s not hard to see why so many of our Mods are proud of the places they call home and are so willing to share a piece of their cultures.
