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.

  1. Hello! Just found your site browsing on Instagram. Love all of your pictures!! I’m moving to the Virgin Islands next week for 6 months, with more destinations to follow. Since you’re an experienced traveler I wanted to ask what is the most affordable way to travel? I am very frugle with my spending and get email updates for flights that have dropped in price but I was wondering if you had any other tricks up your sleeves?

    Hello Katie, and thank you!
    Wow, I’m getting jealous now. You’re moving to a paradise island!
    I search for the cheapest tickets on skyscanner.com(there are lots of sites like this one, just choose the one that suits you the best), and usually I just choose my departure city to “everywhere”, at any departure time, and it finds the cheapest tickets for me to loads of destinations. I’d say flexibility is the key to fly cheap. Good luck on your new adventure! 🙂
