A food lover's packing list

•••
As much as I love to eat outside when traveling and explore new dishes, it can be draining and also expensive, especially when being en route for a longer period of time. Apart from that, I love to prep food myself and explore the local markets and supermarkets for new ingredients to try, including the locals’ favorite spice mix. Cooking yourself also[...]

A Naturopath's guide to avoiding Traveler's Sickness

•••
I have just returned from almost two months exploring India, Nepal and Sri Lanka, drinking all of the chai, eating all of the samosas, watching all of the sunsets and smelling all of the (sometimes really bad) smells. Avoiding traveler’s diarrhea was really high on my priority list, probably even higher than seeing the Taj Mahal. As a naturopath and nutritio[...]

How I travel the world from my desk

•••
I decided to teach English online so that I could be location-independent, and travel anytime and anywhere I wanted. Over the course of a few months, I started working as an online English tutor.  However, money from tutoring trickled in slowly, which meant I still couldn’t afford to travel - and I was totally bummed. I wanted to go to San Miguel de Allend[...]

A happy day in Bacalar, Mexico

•••
Travel destinations are like (potential) lovers: Sometimes you’ve been flirting forever, while others just appear out of nowhere. Some need to grow on you, for others you fall hard right away... love truly is a mysterious thing! During a quite spontaneous and wonderful trip through Quintana Roo and Yucatan, Mexico it happened - I spotted sparkly, turq[...]

10 Films that Make you Feel Empowered as a Woman

•••
Every year, I attend Glasgow Film Festival and look out for films that are creative, inspiring and empowering. This year was a particularly strong year for women directors, as festivals around the world are finally catching onto the fact that there are thousands of women out there, fighting for the opportunity to tell their stories. As a female traveler I ho[...]

My Crash Course Introduction to Campervan Life

•••
Through my windshield I could see my destination, or at least where I assumed it was, miles away on the far-off tips of the Rocky Mountains. It was late May, and my head was racing faster than my wheels. My mood? A confusing mix of sad, excited and scared. I had already cried for the first 100 miles of the trip, and I didn’t want to for the next hundred. I[...]

5 Instagrammers to make you fall in love with Chile

•••
While most of my personal bucket list countries lie in the far north of the northern hemisphere, there is one place in the south, that is constantly on my mind: Chile. There is something so mysterious about this country that stretches for thousands of miles from the dry desert of the Atacama to the fjords and glaciers of southern Patagonia. It is over 10 [...]

How moving abroad has changed my life for the better

•••
More than a year ago, I left my safe space in my hometown of Copenhagen in Denmark and moved abroad to take a masters in journalism and communication in Sydney, Australia. It was by far the biggest decision of my life - and also the most terrifying! I clearly remember the strange feeling in my body at the airport before I jumped on the flight to Sydney. I w[...]

Top 10 awesome experiences in Bali

•••
Our Bali month is over, but my Bali stay is only half way through. These 4 weeks however have been a great start, and an opportunity to get some valuable insight into how this island ticks - and I've done my best to see as much as possible and to get a real feel for this beautiful piece of land. Back in 2016, Annika wrote a pretty great guide for the top 10 [...]

A Beginner's Guide to Welcoming the Unexpected into your Life

•••
In the past, I got the chance to live, work and study abroad a couple of times... But I always dreamed of a nomad life where I could go wherever the adventure would take me, and most importantly, that would teach me things a stable life could not. In May 2016, I left home with a one-way ticket to Asia. And yes, the trip lasted one year and five months - o[...]
