WHEN & WHERE
Why do I travel alone? What are my travel dreams for the future? Read the answers below my timeline.
Started as a self-employed graphic designer and photographer
With butterflies in my stomach, I jumped out as a freelancer, which I have not been before. And it feels much differently than getting your fixed salary every month.
Looking for a motorhome
After quitting the idea of a rebuilt overlander car, I went all-in on finding a motorhome that suited my needs.
4. May 2019
Bumle was bought
I found Bumle in Solrød in Zealand. Bought him and took him home the same day. He was kept secret for a month before I announced to everyone what my plans were.
4. may - 25. august 2019
Planned the trip
Then it had to be made ready. Bumble had to go to the workshop, get solar cells and install solid-gas, etc. Pictures had to be taken and a website had to be made. I had to learn a lot of things about starting as a self-employed with accounting, VAT and tax.
27. July 2019
Sold everything I would not have in Bumle
I chose to sell everything over a weekend at an open house/flea market. Many nice people came and bought my things. And I miss none of it.
25. august 2019
Bumble and I left
Finally, the day was here! I drove across the border, and my ‘work and travel’ adventure had begun.
August - December 2019
Our first trip
I started by driving down through Germany, where I took a few days to Slovakia and visited a Dane who had previously been a nomad. Then I drove to Austria. I took some trips to southern Germany, after which I took a week in Slovenia. Then back to Austria, where I have undoubtedly spent the most time. I again took some short trips to southern Germany. Then I drove towards Luxembourg when I had a meeting. Then I drove along the border to Germany and to France. I spent some time in Switzerland, where I met a Danish woman who has lived there for many years. Then I went for a week to Vallorcine / Chamonix, where I borrowed an apartment. Then I drove back a few days in Switzerland, then drove through Germany and home on Christmas vacation in Denmark.
January - Marts 2020
Spain in the winter – but then Covid-19 got in the way!
I visited a German photographer north of Frankfurt, after which the trip went to Switzerland, where I met the Danish woman again. Had a few days in Switzerland, and then drove to France with a short drive to in Annecy, and then I drove to Spain. I managed to enjoy Spain for a few weeks before Covid-19 arrived. My mother came to visit, but unfortunately, she had to fly home before time, and a few weeks later I, unfortunately, had to drive back to Denmark.
Marts - 2020
I rolled around Denmark for a season. I really enjoyed it because I saw more of Denmark in a relatively short time than I have seen before in my life. Because I have always travelled a lot.
In Düsseldorf to look at new motorhomes
A four day trip to Düsseldorf. It was great to get out again. Afterwards, I could feel that it made me long for the days on the road.
10 days in Sverige - October 2020
I was longing
So I took 10 days in Skåne, Sweden, before Skåne also closed down. It was amazing. Among other things, I was in Söderåsen National Park, Kullaberg and Fyledalen, where I had a really fantastic weekend.
Island 3,5 months - May 2021
I was back in my loving Iceland
It was a dream to come back to Iceland. Even though I have been there many times, there were still things I would like to experience and see. Among other things, I wanted like hiking on a glacier and drone a lot. I got to drive the whole island around 2 times. Visited a lot and my mom came to visit for a week. But the top coolest thing about this trip was seeing the volcano erupt. So those were some cool months. However, 4 weeks before the trip ended, I fell and broke my ankle.
28. januar 2022
6 months in Easteuropa
8. Marts 2022
17th July 2022
The 6 month trip south is over
I ended up staying all my time in northern Spain. And I’ll definitely be back there one day. I was mostly in mountain areas but also slipped out to shore sometimes. I have landed in Denmark, where it stands at lectures, and fairs and meets a lot of people, as well as exciting tasks.
2. December 2022
The trip goes towards the southern sun
I left a bit later on the trip as I had to get the metal out of my ankle. But it went well and I drove to southern Spain for a week. There I met a lot of nice Danes who stayed almost permanently. I benefited from daytime temperatures of 16-22 degrees. I spent Christmas alone in Portugal and New Year in Seville. My little brother visited me. And time flew by. I had to drive home a little earlier as my grandmother had fallen asleep. But all in all, a wonderful ‘little’ trip back to the sun of the south, where I was forced home 3 years ago because of the corona.
29. April 2023
I will sail towards Iceland.
4.5 months on the beautiful island
I must return to my beloved island. I have a guided tour with people in motorhomes and a photography workshop at Grímsey. My photography friend Theis comes up by plane when I land on the ferry and we test drive the guided tour. My sister-in-law is going to visit me during the summer holidays. And then I will see my old host families and friends.
Future travel dreams
There are SO many places I want to go. But in 2023 I will return with a motorhome to Iceland. I know, it was meant to be and I managed to publish that it was to be Norway. But when I was asked at the beginning of 2022 if I wanted to guide and have a photography workshop in Iceland, I changed my mind. So Norway, Finland and a bit of Sweden won’t be until 2024.
Why do I travel alone?
There are actually several reasons for this. I have no boyfriend, I enjoy having the freedom to do what I want. I can stop the car and work when it fits. I can stop and go for a walk and take photos whenever I want.
