2017 Travel Plans

So far in 2017 I have been to: England were I got stuck for New Years Eve on my way to the Philippines and ended up staying a couple of days with friends. The Philippines where I spend almost a month traveling to Cebu, Coron and El Nido. Highlight was the Island Hopping tour. Singapore was only supposed to be a stopover for a couple of days on my way to Malaysia, but I loved it so much I stayed a couple of nights extra. Malaysia where I went to the national park Taman Negara for 4 days and explored the nature and wildlife of the Malaysian jungle. Sweden is my home country and I went back here to take care of our family’s dog and a few other things before I headed out into the world again for good. France was a spontaneous trip I made for 5 days before I flew…

How I got my job as a travel writer

In one way my road to becoming a travel writer has been very easy but on the other hand it took more than 3 years to get here. Although I did it as a hobby for 3 years and only then decided I would try to make a living off of it. First of all – what is my job? Freelance writer I’m a freelance travel writer for Skyscanner.se. I write articles with tips and inspiration in Swedish on Skyscanner’s Swedish website.

Blogger &  Instagrammer I also get jobs through my blog and Instagram. These are different project…

How I earn money while traveling the world – Digital Nomad

Now I can finally title myself a digital nomad. The dream job and lifestyle. Up until now, I’ve travelled once a month and always going back to the same place where I had a regular Monday-Friday job at a store. Sure, it wasn’t completely regular as I had the freedom to choose my vacation days as I pleased. Now I won’t have to go home between trips as I will be living on the road, traveling full time. Now I can work from wherever there’s wifi.  I have 3 places of income at the moment. Freelance travel writer, travel blogger and Instagrammer.

I got offered a writing job for one of their competitors but asked if they had a writing job for me since they are the site I…

How to survive as a vegan in the Philippines

It’s not easy being vegan in the Philippines. It’s not even easy being lacto-ovo-vegetarian in the Philippines. The people of this country truly loves their meat. And because of being a tropical land, you might expect fruits and vegetables to be a big part of their cuisine – but think again.  Snacks Always have snacks with you. This isn’t as easy at it may sound. Finding chips that are not meat or cheese flavoured is actually quite hard. Regular salted chips is apparently not very popular here. Even the classic red Pringles tube is hard to spot while the weirdly flavoured one’s are everywhere. What you actually can find in most places: Oreos (a vegan’s lifesaver) Nuts If you’re lucky you can also get: Dried green peas (very rich in protein but look out for the flavouring as it might have meat flavouring) Fruit – yes it’s actually hard…
