About five years ago, I made two life-changing decisions: First, I decided to become a professional travel blogger; a job that my mom was sure I had pulled out of my imagination. And then, I sent myself to Bali for a month on my first solo trip. I had dreamed of doing something this ridiculously adventurous and equally frightening all of my life… but the right moment hadn’t arrived until then.
Where I come from, it’s not normal to do something like this. Most Danes work from 9-5 and buy a house and car when they grow up. They don’t make a career out of something as fluffy as blogging or travel without their husbands. It’s just not normal.
But I wanted to be a blogger so I worked hard until I reached my goals. Today, I have a thriving copywriting business, a great life in Denmark with my gorgeous husband and son, and a blog that just reached 115,000 followers on social media.
It’s been a crazy ride to get where I am today. But I’ve gained so much in return and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.
