Who am I? That is a really good question. My name is Mille (and yes you can pronounce it Millie, even though it is not the correct pronunciation). I’m 23 years old and I’m kind of a big city girl. I grew up (and still live) in Copenhagen, Denmark. To those of you who think Denmark is the capital of Sweden, a city in Russia or maybe have never even heard of it – NO! Denmark is a small kingdom in Europe with about 5.7 million people. Anyways… I cannot get enough of traveling, tv series, music and shopping. Which is why this blog is about all the wonders of traveling. I don’t use the word ‘hate’ often, but when I do, you can be sure it’s associated with one of three words: owls, needles or coke (the soda).
I graduated from Rysensteen Gymnasium in 2017, where I studied derivative functions and the meaning behind Stanislavskij’s theatrical method. Because of the fact that these things have a tendency to be a bit boring at times, I also studied the amazing language of spanish and the cultures of the spanish speaking people around the world. Now that I’m a graduate I spend my time trying to be the best version of myself, which includes blogging, shopping, singing, dancing, traveling and working out. I try to live as positive and healthy as I can, but I gotta admit, the healthy part is not always that easy… I love dark chocolate and cake…
I also spend a lot of my time studying Service, Hospitality and Tourism Management at Copenhagen Business Academy. Why not make a living of planning trips and seeing the world? That’s what I hope to be able to do in the future.
I’m a former exchange student who lived in Texas for a year back in 2013/14, where I went to school and danced all day long. If you want to know more about my time as an exchange student in the US, you can read my exchange blog here – which is in danish but can be translated – and you will find about a million posts on everything from the day I applied to the day I returned. Everything you need to know to become an exchange student is described in detail.
Oh, and I’m also a former wildlife volunteer. I spent almost two months in April and May 2019, volunteering with animals in Port Douglas, Australia. This was a dream of mine for many years, and it certainly lived up to my expectations. I loved every minute of it. I will be sharing a story or two about my time in Australia and as a wildlife volunteer, so if you’re interested in that, don’t hesitate to ask questions. I also made a video about what a day in the life of a wildlife volunteer is like. You can find that here.
I want to write about adventures around the world and inspire people to travel. I want to show people how to travel without having a lot of money. And I want them to know that it isn’t luck, but persistency.
If you are interested in traveling, this is where you will find tips, travel itineraries, destination must-sees and more!
