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. Freelance travel writer I write travel articles in Swedish, which is my native language. I write for Skyscanner and get paid per article. 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.

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…

Travel Diary – Week 1

After missing my connecting flight that would eventually get me to El Nido in Palawan for New Years Eve, I got stuck in London. Which actually turned out to be the best thing that could’ve happened, because one of my friends was there too and we hadn’t seen each other since September. Also, London is a pretty good place to celebrate a new year. It was 2 amazing days, and then I continued my route to the Philippines Cebu Arrived quite late, got into my room and within the first 5 minutes I knew I had some awesome roomies. Some of them were going to the falls down south and canyoning, but I felt too tired for an active day so I asked if anyone wanted to do an island hopping tour the next day. One of the girls, Nana, said she was booked on one and could ask…

Guest Post – My story on traveling with a mental disorder

I have gotten a lot of response to my posts about traveling with mental illness. This goes to show me that it really is needed to be talked about. People want to see it being talked about in the open. I’ve encouraged others to talk about this subject openly too, and said that if they want to share their stories, I would be happy to share them with my followers. This story is from my fellow GLT-girl Christina Lara. GLT(Girls Love Travel) is a Facebook group with now almost 170.000 women all over the world who love to travel. It’s a place for girls all over the world to inspire, support and ask each other for help. I shared my post in the group and I’ve gotten a few people wanting to share their stories too. Each story is different, but there are always people who can relate, and can feel…
