I’m a 25 year old girl from Sweden who has, like so many others, a serious case of wanderlust.
I have been lucky enough to have parents who likes to travel, so I had been to 4 different continents and around 15 countries before I turned 16.
I was 15 the first time I went abroad without my parents, when I was chosen as a representative in my class to go to Poland and Germany to learn more about WWII. In the summer that same year, I went on a language course to California, USA, for a month.
In September 2013 when I, for the first time, travelled completely alone to a place where I knew no one, I realized that this is my passion. That is when the travel bug bit me for real. I started to learn more about how I could travel as much as possible, and a whole new world opened up.
Since then, I have travelled about once a month an average.
To this day I have been to 6 continents and 66 countries.
I travelled once a month for 3,5 years while still having a normal Mon-Fri job and you can read my old posts about how I could travel so often here and you can read about how I could travel the world without quitting my job here.
Nowadays I travel full time and I make my income from working as a freelance travel writer and as a social media influencer. You can read about how I manage to make money while traveling here and here you can read about how I got my job as a travel writer.
