Picture from a lovely walk in Frederiksberg Have
I totally slept in yesterday. I woke up at 12.40 pm, confused and angry with myself for being so lazy. The great thing about working from home and working for yourself is that you decide when, where and how to do your work.
One of the main reasons why I wanted to pursue this lifestyle was that I would never have to wake up early again and never set an alarm again. I need 9-10 hours sleep everyday and waking up early has never been my thing.
Jonas made me coffee and we sat and talked about this and that. The weather outside was amazing for the first time since… Well, I don’t remember, so we decided to go for a walk. (more…)

When I was 12 years old I lived in Zimbabwe with my parents. Since then I’ve always dreamed about living abroad. I remember when we came to the capital of Zimbabwe, Harare, and I saw palm trees for the first time. It was magical – A symbol of warm weather.
It was love at first palm tree. :D
I only lived in Zimbabwe for 1.5 years but I never forgot the palm trees and the warm weather. Each winter the cold and dark weather makes me miss the hot African sun. Sunshine fills me with energy and it feels like I can accomplish anything I want.
For many years I thought that it was only Zimbabwe that could give me this feeling. But when I lived in San Diego for six months I would feel the same as in Zimbabwe. I realized that I’m a sucker for palm trees and sunshine – no matter the location. (more…)
When we tell people about our future travel plans they normally react in the same way. At first they’re excited for us and ask questions about what we’re going to see, where we’ll stay and practical questions like that. Then they pause for a minute and ask:
“But, you didn’t win the lottery or something, did you? How on earth are you going to fund your travels!?”
Well, you might be thinking the exact same thing after reading our previous post. So how are
we going to fund our travels? Well, let’s begin by killing the common myth about travel… (more…)

2013 is going to be a huge year for us. It will be the year we set off to start living our dream as travelers of the world – with no plan of returning to Denmark. We are so excited and just can’t wait to start our journey.
There are still a few loose ends here and there, the largest one being our yet unsold apartment. We would love to sell it before leaving for good, but there are a few complications which makes it very hard to sell at the moment. So maybe we’ll just start out by renting it to someone – Jonas already has a friend who’s really interested… We might just rent it to him.
No matter what we deside to do, 2013 will be the year we begin our new lifestyle as travelers, and we thought we would let you in on our big plans for this year. (more…)
After watching Kon-Tiki the other day, we have been next to obsessed with French Polynesia, because… Well, just look at it!? French Polynesia is the perfect island paradise and we can only imagine how amazing it would be to wake up to that dreamy view.
Located in the middle of The Pacific Ocean, these islands are far away from all the stress and polution you’ll find in big cities, and though we really enjoy the big cities this tranquility seems pretty compelling as well… (more…)
